    I need those guys (Elphaorpha, Rartrarta and Drancron) to complete my BWN collection. I am not in a hurry but want them nonetheless.

    How much did you pay for yours? In what condition, when and where?

    I might have to consider a trade while Aussie$ is this low, and I would like to know the current value of them.

    Thank you in advance :)

    These have actually become very hard to find on ebay

    I think the torca repaint is the hardest to get

    I got the lizard one from a cheap but it now

    I wouldnt waste your one on the injector one as it looks to be the exact same as the us release

    I know :(  I am kicking myself for not picking them up earlier. Elphaorpha(Torca repaint) is the best of the bunch, too. Last time I got outbid on yahoo jp, I thought I'd get another chance, but nope.

    Thirded, especially since the Beast Wars mini they were in. :(  It's weird, Ravage was more expensive but is far easier to come by.

    Injector and Raartor... Rartle... Rattle... ...hm.

    Injector and Rosebud are only distinguished by Roto-Rooter having a dark grey plastic instead of straight out black. And I don't care what you name it, I'd never pay $40 or $50 for an insignificant recolor of Injector.

    Elphaorpha should be doubly desired these days, though, since Torca is a GPS victim. The last set of Blendtrons I could find on Ebay went for around US$50 a piece, and I think it's going to get worse as it becomes clear they they're both rare, and becoming more desired. I bet we'll see these guys join Ravage in the ranks of $130-$170 BINs on Ebay.

    Ebay:
    Just wanted to echo similar experiences... Roto-Rooter (thanks, ExVeeBrawn :lol ) was easy to track down, while Drancron took only slightly longer, and Elpha probably a good six months of actively looking... and that was probably four or five years ago now.

    Got Elpha loose for about $30, but no idea what he's pulling these days.

    ^ Mate it's OK, I'm still your friend :(

    Now the possibility of achieving my 2009 TF resolution seems even slimmer :cry  Thank you for the input, everyone.

    I never got around to getting them, I had seen them rather temptingly priced at OTFCC, but by the time I got back to the table, they had been sold. I never really went after them, so I never ended up with them.

    As I recall, there was a post or a thread or something about someone having a Torca with GPS and being broken while still being MISB, so that also put me off trying to get them.

    Sounds like you were the same as me, they weren't the priority in my BWN collection :(  Now that there's a thread like this there'd be no bargain in junkion exchange, either.
    *kicks self some more*
