    It's not hard to find G1 toys, but it can be expensive.

    Loose/complete Cyclonus goes for around £20-25. That's not too bad in my opinion.

    The rest all have reissues, but don't kid yourself that that means you'll find them real cheap.

    There is also KOs for some of those.

    KO Cyclonus
    KO Prowl

    if you want authentic G1 then I suggest you read on how to spot the diffrences...it is of course harder to spot a loose one.

    If you dont care for vintage but are happy with a reissue then you can get all as a reissue except Cyclonus.

    The funny thing is none of my friends are Transformers fans or they used to be and arent into it anymore

    And why is Cyclonus more expensive?

    He was a popular character who has NOT seen his original toy reissued. All the other toys you mentioned have had (in some cases, NUMEROUS) reissues over the years.
    Cyclonus has not, and that is why he is still quite pricey (that said, if you don't care if they are "authentic" G1, he has had a high quality knock off available for some time.

    To be honest though, I think the recent "Battle in Space" figure two has the best Cyclonus available, even if he is not the G1 mold.

    Cyclonus doesn't have a reissue, only the original toys from the 80's, so he's harder to come by. Therefore the higher prices.
