    I've found a few reviews on YouTube and have come to accept an expensive truth: I must own these figures so as to create Sonic Wing Prime.

    However, I'm trying to figure out how much I should really pay for these guys. They go individually for over a hundred easy on eBay and around the Web.

    Any suggestions? And I'd certainly want them MIB.

    i have them mint in box. one of my nephews started ripping the tape on one side. what would u be willing to pay?
    that is the deal on e-bay. items will sell for as much as people are willing to pay for them. the last time i saw it on e-bay it sold for about $80. a real bargain compared to amazon.

    see, now you have a sellers market. people wanna sell theirs to you as long as they can be happy with what they get for it. economics 101 supply/demand.

    kinda like the whole sdcc soundwave thing, i was pissed when i saw that hasbro was listing it, they'd been sold out for a while, so now i'm watching e-bay for about 4 of them where the bidding's low....
    oops i hope nobody here is looking for those guys.

    Yeah that's what I thought. I do like Wingsaber scheme better though, and I like him a lot, I don't even combine him with Prime :)

    Ebay:
    Got my Optimus for $30 plus shipping before summer ended of off Ebay. It would be best going through the Junkion marketplace for a deal though as most of us fans give much more generous offers than the price inflation and competitiveness of ebay (plus they're all buy it now =P).

    I can't imagine more than $50 for Optimus and $40 for Wingsaber. :|

    Conversely you could try to go for the movie Wingsaber repaint...but I'm not sure how that looks on Optimus.

    Ebay:
    The Japanese TRU sonic giftset for $250 has a translucent optimus prime and slightly shiner wing saber. I think it might have Coby Ramble also.

    On ebay, I see the US Optimus going for $50-$70 and the Costco 2-pack going for $100-$130 which is what it has always been give or take $10.
