    Not sure why you're asking since you already know it was a good deal.

    Well, there's the possibility that he wasn't certain whether or not that was a good deal and decided to post the question to the public.

    I think it's a good deal. Nice price for more than 1 G1 in that condition.

    well I'm just starting to collect G1, so I don't know any good value of those figures.

    I just have a feeling that somewhere it probably cheaper

    Got any pics of them? That might help us figure out if $25 was a good deal or a ripoff.

    I mean, are they totally trashed or do they look great?

    Both weapons for each dude, pair of tech specs to go with them, paint looks good...

    Yeah, I'd say $25 is fair. Maybe a bit on the expensive side, but not so much that you should be lamenting the loss of your money. Looks like a nice find to me!

    ok, I can rest easy now.....

    Do any of you know where I can find price guide for G1 figures?
    & which one do you guys recommend in buying a good price?

    Buying a complete figure with accessories or buying loose figure and accessories seperate

    Ebay:
    Price Guides: There is no single, one-size-fits-all price guide. Your best bet is to look at the buy/sell/trade forums here, on other transformers sites and on Ebay and compare prices for a particular item for which you're searching.

    Buying figures: In my opinion, it's much easier to pick up a complete figure than to pick up something loose and spend months & years trying to collect the accessories. On top of that, some people make a real racket selling accessories for like $2-$5 a pop, just because they know you might need it.

    Buy complete, even if it's a few dollars more. It's sooo worth it to avoid the hassle of completing figures.

    Fair? That's a killer deal man. 2 vintage/complete/excellent condition tapes for only $25, that's a steal. And it's not like he got the 2 most common tapes around.

    The only price guide I use is completed auctions on Ebay. nothing else is worth the paper it's printed on.
