    The highest I can recall seeing a TF sell for was probably a MISB Fort Max going on ebay for somewhere around $2,000, if memory serves.

    The most I've ever paid is $125 for a MIB G1 Omega Supreme.

    I paid $300 for a Fort Max five years ago....I totally got ripped off since it was missing a lot of accessories, but at the time all I wanted was a Fort max with ramps and Cerebros and Spike since every auction that wasn't for a MIB one I looked at was missing one or all of those things for a month and a half.

    $50 has been the highest I've paid for a single transformer, so far.

    I REALLY want the Galaxy Force White Chromia

    and the RID Megatron Deathsaurus

    But there is no way I'm paying over $100 for a single toy. That's just stupid, especially since they're both relatively small toys ( Chromia especially)

    I could afford both these toys and buy them online right now, I just can't justify spending that much on a single toy.

    It makes and even stronger arguement against buying them considering both toys are repaints of toys I already have

    What really amazes me is how much people pay for those perverted Kiss Player toys.

    It seems they usually go for $60- $70. And people BUY THEM? So not only did you just waste 70 bucks (probably more with shipping) on a toy that is considered the bane of transformers existance with the majority of the fanbase?

    Unless of course you're some kind of sexual deviant, otherwise, I don't see how retailers are selling these things.

    Ebay:
    My Predaking reissue cost somewhere around $130-160 (I forget exactly how much). I pray I never spend that much on a single Transformer purchase ever again.

    Not that I regret buying Predaking, it's just that it was a LOT of money to me.

    The most I paid for one was a MIB 100% complete Fort max for about $500.

    The most Ive seen a single TF item go for, would have to be one of the unreleased MOSC G2 stunticon/protectobot, I think some of those were topping out over $2500 bucks.

    I do remember one seller trying to get $1500 for a MISB G1 Skids!
