    I have done a bit of looking around and for some reason I cannot comprehend he is unusually higher priced when compared to other.

    my best guess is either his spring loaded transformation gimmick has not stood the test of time or his 2 piece gun is easily lost ( which it is)

    Im talking about the original Rattrap not Transmetal or Beast Machines.

    so if anyone can enlighten me on how the original Rattrap has become so rare to shoot up in value higher that many of the larger beast wars figures id be very grateful

    I heard somewhere that the original mold is lost, so it can never be reproduced.

    And he was one of the more popular show characters, at that.

    You are right, his mold is either lost or degraded, thats why transmetal Rattrap was released for the 10th anniversity figure instead of his basic 96 figure. He can go as high as $50 on ebay loose . I actually know someone who owns the prototype.

    Ebay:
    Just go to big lots and get the KO.
    It's the same size and colors, besides his brain being blue.
    He only costs $2.99! :)

    Airrazor and Terrorsaur also command a hefty price.
