    Hey everyone, not sure if this should go in here or the eBay forum, but I've got a question I need answered. Hope you can help me out! :eek: 

    For a friend, I need to know what the approximate value would be for a Binaltech Wheeljack.

    Features:
    -second hand, but in perfect condition (no scratches or anything)
    -comes without a box, but with instruction manual
    -It's the Binaltech one, not Alternators.


    Is there a general value for which these are changing hands?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    well im not an expert at this but ill give it a shot

    the Alt version is worth atleast $35 in that condition so the Binaltech id say would be worth around $60 if not more

    but dont quote me on that

    Around 100 USD to be fair. MISB or not makes little difference for Binaltechs unless we're talking about Black Convoy.

    Used to have three Wheeljacks at one point, one was bought when he first came out and the other two were acquired from these forums, I don't think I paid over 80 USD for any but that was just being lucky.

    Just speaking for myself, I wouldn't pay $100 USD for it. I've seen American versions of Alternator Wheeljack/Grimlock sell for $40, on average.

    Orion Prime's $60 estimate sounds about fair for a loose product. $80 sounds fair for a MISB version.

    Thanks everyone!

    We both figured it would be better to ask fans and collectors than go with what Ebay says. Most of the time prices on Ebay don't make alot of sense - there's people on there that sell stuff they don't know the value of at all, or people that demand outrageous prices (or in case of bidding only, people willing to pay outrageous prices).

    Thanks!

    The only thing I would say when asking fans about prices is that I find people will tend to lowball the cost of what you can actually get for something. Quite often there's a difference between what you can get for something and what people think they should be paying for something.

    I suppose you are right :)  That's something to keep in mind.
    Thanks again for the great help!
