    Wow, I have never seen the selling price for Botcon exclusives drop so fast.

    a Skyquake went for $20. Wow.

    I got and liked the boxed set, but the add ons (except for the sweeps) not so much.

    It's always so hard to tell if it's better to buy fast or wait...

    Wow. That's good news. I still need the Boxed set and the Banzaitron/Skyquake set. Sweeps and Leozak are on their way.

    Wish I would've waited a bit though now.

    Sweeps doesn't seem to be dropping much. Leozack has fallen quite a bit too. I am wondering if the falling prices has to do with people's capital being tied up in movie figures.

    Since when did we see a drop in Sweeps' pricing? :sly2: 

    That da#* set had been hitting roof tops (or maybe went beyond that) since their release. They keep getting pricier & pricier each day. Had to pay 5X more than what they're worth in order to secure them & it's been barely less than 3 months only. :cry

    that skyquake was a stolen figure from china...but still, the prices aren't super high...and that happens...sometimes the characters are super important that everyone wants (like thundercracker, dirge and thrust) sometimes they're a bit more random (like skyquake and banzaitron)

    Landshark hooray yeah woo thanks FP for forcing your shitty fanmade character on us! When an exclusive is less valuable than the normal retail release of the figure you know you've fucked up somewhere.

    Ah that makes sense. Cuz the cheapest I see Skyquake going for right now is 38.

    And yeah, the more popular characters like Razorclaw, Kup and Scourge (and hell the sweeps too, but their prices may reflect how many were made) will be the most sought after since people will want to add them to their classics collection (like myself)
