So I have been thinking about this for a little bit of time and today I finally realized this classics collecting is getting rediculous in price. I started in October of 2010. At that time I picked up a collection of 16 Classics for around $30 a figure. At first, I thought it was a bit steeper then I wanted, but at the same time they were all mosc and that included ratchet, ironhide, optimus, inferno, Ramjet, henkei astro train and silverstreak which were all still pretty rare at the time. So I worked out a deal. Now I am almost done with all of the G1 classics from the 84 cartoon. If I started today, I would never be able to afford my collection. It seems like the simplest figures are sky rocketing in price and I have no clue why. Yes, they are cool, but seriously some things I am seeing are insane. Having said all that, do you think this is the height of transformer classics collecting? Do you think that these figures will drastically drop in price in lets say 5 or so years? I use to have a $4,000 SW collection which is now worth $200 (PM me if interested, lol). My Spawn figures are worth crapola as well. Now I don't collect for the money. But I am wondering if this like the other toys I use to collect will fall in price like crazy. I for one don't think in 20 years these will carry their value. I see 30-40 year olds getting this stuff, but I wonder what our interest will be when we are 50 or 60. Just want to get your experiences/ideas on this.
