    I need to sell this item and I'm going to be putting it up on ebay but, I need to know what a good starting point pricewise should be and what i should expect in return.

    Any ideas out there? Thanks!!

    I've seen them going for an average of 90-155 on Ebay. Via the Junkion Exchange, I've seen them go for about 90-125. I think you should start at 90 and expect up to 125 via Ebay. Good luck!

    There's the hog wash bullshit Fansproject markup that you can take advantage of. They were easily going for less than $20 a year ago when I snagged mine. If you want to guarantee a sale you can price it under $90, but if you want to start there than that's your prerogative.

    I'd put it up now since the price will fall fast if the rumored classics three pack comes out.

    You could start it at .99 and watch the price go sky high.

    Classics & Henkei Rodimus demand high prices, and people seem to pay that price. Which is why I'm glad that there's going to be a 3-pack with Rodimus. The Protector is going to probably make the even demand higher for Classics Rodimus as well.

    To this day I still kick myself for no getting him in '06...

    Wow, it's been 4 years already?

    To be on topic, to the OP if the prices are pretty consistent I would start the auction at a penny or .99 and let it fly. Those auctions always seem to do the best for in demand items.

    You'll probably find him going less for what he was going for a few weeks ago - the recent announcement of a re-release has dampened the market a bit.

    I bought mine for $70 in person at the beginning of the year.

    I say start your price at however much it was you bought it for. You'll at the very least get your money back. If you want more, it'll raise up, mostly in the last hour of your auction. But look more into getting your money back than just being greedy.

    They have already begun to re-issue this series, just look at Hound. I would sell this thing ASAP before it bottoms out, which it will.
