    Unless it's the black G1 Ironhide, they can be found quite cheap.

    Which ones, and how cheap? There is a local shop here that used to be an ehobby dealer and has some of the older stuff. At the local convention last year I was mad that I didn't have enough funds to pick some up. Not sure how soon I can check, but hit me up with a list and I will see if anyone is going there this weekend.

    e-hobby and cheap is a rare combination. Like Jewish and Scotsman. :) 

    Other than the Ironhide, you can find the Omega Supreme repeaint at a decent price if you look hard enough.

    Post what you're looking for in the Wanted section in Junkion. You might be able to find a good deal through the boards. It doesn't hurt to try.

    j was looking at e-hobby items myself last night.

    i wouldn't mind that Detritus figure to go with Wreck-Gar, Overcharge, (aside from the Guardian, that's an expensive troopbuilder) and Magnificus.

    I just don't wanna think about the going rate for those figures.

    heck, i wish i could pre-order their new Decepticon 3 pack that's been announced at BBTS.

    Some of them such as Detritus and Overcharge could be had for very little a couple years ago. Sunstorm tends to go for less now that he's been reissued (before he went for tons).

    Some are very expensive such as Astrotrain and the Gobots. Any way you look at it, most are over 5 years old now and were limited to just a thousand or so. So you're going to pay a lot for them.

    I have them all, thankfully, with not intentions of selling them.

    I cant wait to get the new Ehobby 3 packs. I got the ehobby black megatron at comiccone last year for 45 so if youlook hard enough you can find them cheap.

    Pre.Ordered! I've been waiting for BBTS to put the pre-order up for them since they were announced. :D 

    but yea, on topic. eHobby's are limited editions meant for collectors.... they're just pricey items by nature.

    yeah--i know. occassionally I get lucky. got the bright green inferno guy for 10 bucks once. some really cool recolors of some G1 stuff, but with a wife and two kids....I'm lucky to put gas in my car some weeks.

    Mainly I want the G1 stuff. no interest in the newer see through garbage. thats just silly to me. got the omega supreme repaint. want the ironhide/ratchet repaints, as well as the clampdown and the other sideswipe recolor. saw those on ebay for 299 for the pair. wouldn't mind the black blitzwing and astrotrain too. gonna have to sell a kid to get em though, and I doubt my wife would be happy with me after that!
