    OS is missing one missile, the blue back panel, and one tiny black panel on the "aircraft carrier" cockpit. I forgot to mention that he has his card, if that will affect the price.

    Rumble is in perfect condition. No box.

    OS is probably more than $15-20 since it has the head. From what I've seen, that influences the price fairly significantly.

    Rumble is probably between $20-25 in that condition

    My gut says $50-70 for Grimlock, but I could be pulling that number out of my ass.

    Here is the QC problem on Grimlock:

    Sorry if blurry. It seems that the top layer of plastic has peeled of, and has taken some of the purple with it. It doesn't come of when left alone though.

    From what I've seen on Ebay, he's around $30-$40, and those auctions aren't even done yet.

    I found OS's other missile. Will that increase the price by any chance?

    1. Omega Supreme being almost complete with no box should run you at the very least $20.00 and $30.00 at the most

    2. Rumble considering he's no longer in production and he's not all that popular as an alternator will run you about $20.00 since he's loose and doesn't have his box.

    3. Grimlock not sure but most Botcon exclusives are usually pricey depends on the size and popularity of the toy. I'll go out on a limb and say $45-50.00

    IMO I wouldn't bother with Charts or going off of eslave.

    TBH go w/ your own gut.

    Well, if OS won't go for that much, then I guess he'll be a keeper. Grimlock's price probably won't be what I wanted it to be with that QC either. However, if I can get $30-$40 for Rumble, then he might go.
