    Yep,

    Thrust goes for 400+ now
    Dirge is around 150
    Thundercracker is around 200

    Once henkei cracker releases he may drop but not by much

    Sounds about right unfortunately... Thrust seems a little on the high side but the others, not so much.

    Thundercracker is around 200

    are those Ebay prices only or is that outside prices? What is a fair offer for all three? So, I guess $400-550 is about right for all three?

    I'd recommend waiting on Thundercracker at least. He's being released over in Japan so you'll be able to get him cheaper.

    question being are they worth more sealed as in the "a la cart" version or does it matter?

    With a honest seller 500-600 should be fine for the three.
    The boards are your best bet price wise or customs can be commissions

    The boxset is only around 800 on ebay now.

    I'll never look at my Botcon guys the same again, it's like having a shelf of money!

    This is good to know. I have an extra Botcon '07 boxset that I've been thinking of unloading, but didn't really know what kind of pricetag I should set for it.

    Oh yeah, this is real. Those guys are very highly sought after by the fandom. I do expect Thundercracker to drop in price a little, but probably not much. After the intial release of the Henkei version he's going to be just as hard to get at as the Botcon one... maybe a little easier, but not by much I'm sure.

    Though, right now, if anyone is looking for a Thundercracker, I'd recommend preordering the Henkei one from BBTS... they've got them for preorder for about $75 I believe. It looks just as good (the chrome is suprisingly not as tacky on him as on other Henkei I've seen) and a little over half the eBay price.

    Some cheese with your whine?

    Seriously, this whinging is over a year old now. When are people going to get over it? Jesus.

    QFT!!!

    Their price is one of the major reasons I decided to kitbash them. I'm still working on Dirge and Thrust, and while my Thundercracker isn't perfect, he's definetly good enough for me.
