    I'm looking for the original Optimus Prime Revoltech figure and on eBay the figure ranges from $80+ new in box to $30 loose and there are some that come brand new in box but they are only $50

    And so I'm trying to figure out if fake ones ever came along because I would think they are easy to just replicate.

    Anyone know? Thanks!

    If there are, I've never heard of it. Also, those prices sound insanely high for Revoltech G1 Prime.

    yeah I'm able to find everything else for under $30 each but the prime totally ranges in price from $50 to $100, its quite ridiculous

    But I just don't get why if there are $100 ones out there, why are there ones selling for significantly cheaper?

    Because all the other Revoltechs don't vary in price. They are all in the same price range.

    I think if people get in bidding wars the price will go up. Probably because it's Optimus the price is high.

    Because they are not sold in stores anymore, they think they can jack up the prices. But the ones at $100 wont ever sell.

    OP has been high priced for at least two years. I've never seen one on the bay or other venues for less than $50. Small supply?

    I like the Revolactionmasterstech a lot. Sure they're Pat Lee-Dreamwave-inspired. If the Megs were a bit taller compared to the deluxe classics seekers, he'd stand with them.

    That sounds a bit high, maybe you can try Junkion Exchange. Also never heard of a KO, maybe the tech isnt as easy to copy straight up
