    Ladies, Gents, how much could I expect to buy these for?

    Loose?
    With beat up box?
    With good box?

    On some of the pictures I've seen, the boxes have had tri-lingual packaging, I believe it was English/French/Spanish. Was that the norm?

    Thanks for your time, I'm very interested to hear any thoughts on these.

    Bullet trains? As in most of the guys that make up Sixtrain, or the RiD combiner team? If the latter, expect at least $20 each at best. But more likely, expect to pay through the nose on ebay, as those three are nearly 11 - 12 years old now, and pray that the LR-44 batteries in Railspike's weapon haven't leaked.

    As for the boxes, I think they were all trilingual. The set itself is one of the nicest combiners made to this day, IMO.

    Hey DB, thanks, I meant the three that include Railspike. These three only combine to form one long train, right? So around $20 loose? I might try and look for them boxed also. (Even though I shouldn't...)

    I just searched for Sixtrain; hadn't heard of him before.


    P.S., if anyone posts any links to the cartoon featuring them... you would be the man!

    They can be linked together, (loosely, but possible) but the main thing is that they combine to form Rail Racer. I'd expect at least $20 per figure, or like $50 - $60 for all three. But I'm very certain other members here are a lot more knowledgeable on what these tend to go for.

    I found those three as well as some of the RID cars, supa fiya convoy, magnus & megatron in a box of loose figures today, I'd definitely be interested in finding out what they go for to do some trades with on here...

    Wow, very surprised to hear that. They sound undervalued. I have this latent adult love for trains and train travel I can't explain... thanks for all the info, everyone.

    i've seen them in a high end collectors shop *so normally on the high end of prices* for about 30 dollars each, *boxed, not sure if they were sealed though* so i wouldn't pay more then 30 dollars each for them. now the japanese version, with the clear windows, that's another story.
