    I'm starting to make a list of all my Transformers and in that list I'm trying to put the price of what I paid for them. I have all of them with price except for my Beast Wars and RiD that I bought from retail when they came out.

    So does anyone remember the average prices of the following for retail: (Walmart, Target, K-Mart, KB Toys, TRU)

    Beast Wars:
    Basic
    Mega
    Ultra
    Super

    RiD:
    Spy Changers - 2 Packs
    Mega - Gift Packs - 3 Packs
    Basic
    Mega
    Ultra
    Super

    I don't need a price for each store but more like an estimated price. I can guess what the prices were compared to what they are today, but I would love to find someone that actually remembers how much they were. A ball park price would work, like:

    RiD - Spy Changer - 5 - 7
    RiD - Basic - 7 - 9
    RiD - Mega - 15 - 20
    RiD - Ultra - 25 - 30
    RiD - Super - 40 - 50

    And I know I have TRU Scourge but, I couldn't even begin to remember what I paid for it, but I know all of mine I bought from retail and not 2nd hand or ebay or the like so...

    Thank you for all the help.

    Right now my collection is worth $1100 not including my BW or RiD or at least they were when they came out.. lol

    Did Beast Wars have a Omega? I know basic/deluxe/mega/ultra for sure, not sure where Optimal Optimus fell in as he was a bit under the Supreme Cheetor in BM...

    Technically he's a super class, I remember that stupid cheetor to come out for Beast Machines and it was more expensive then Optimal Optimus Prime..

    It's best not to quote spam poster's posts... The only reason for him (it?) posting is to be able to post advertisement links. Check his other posts... this account should have been banned months ago.

    EDIT: AND... Taken care of. Thanks mods!

    I'd be more interested in G1 Figure Prices. I know that Scramble City Limbs were $5, and the torsos were $10.

    I know they didn't have as uniform sizing, but that makes a compendium of their original values all the more valuable.

    This thread is going to lead to many tears when we start talking about figures such as that Classics Ultra Magnus/Skywarp 2 pack...

    Not just Beast Wars. There's never been an "Omega" size class.

    You want tears? How about when I passed on those over and over because I "could not justify buying that pack just for skywarp, when I already have that prime"

    Pretty stupid huh? I actually like the white Magnus now, and skywarp is to die for.

    I just recently did the same stupid shit with the rts cyclonus hot rod set. Seen it at kmart for like $10 and thought..ill just trade someone for that cyclonus so I don't have to get that hotrod. I got the set on a trade deal that cost me more than the kmart price and now I love the set...

    Stupid me...

    Depends, if you're talking the first xXx or the 2nd with Ice Cube..and is it dvd or bluray? But I'm thinking it probably cost about 16.99$ originally...but I'm sure now you can find a combo pack probably around like 10$ or less even. But i'd stick with the first xXx..much better, much more fun.
