    My cheapest, ROTF Scalpel for $1, and G1 Soundwave reissue as the most expensive for $25.

    Don't make fun of my most expensive one, i don't "buy" them much, more trades and stuff.

    Cheapest: Armada mini-cons, 3 for £1 at Auto Assembly '09, working out at 33p each.
    Most expensive: Encore Omega Supreme, £55 (but I suspect that record will be broken before the year is out)

    Cheapest - probably a boot sale haul or something. Though the one I like to bring up is the £1 TF Victory Star Saber :D 

    Most Expensive - Brave Maximus, back in 2002.

    How'd you manage that ???

    My cheapest is probably like 50p for a semi broken Hard head (I think it was the cannon. The headmaster was intact). My most expensive is probably Grimlock (£70). Or RiD Omega Prime (£80 if you count buying Optimus and Ultra Magnus together).

    I think my most expensive is MISB Transformers Jr. Optimus/Chromedome/Fort Max pack.. I think Fort Max was part of it, it's in storage, can't recall.

    Cheapest is probably ROTF Ejector

    If it's the TF Jr. set I think you're talking about, then yeah, Fort Max is in it.

    My cheapest is a KO Wing Saber/Victory Leo set for $3. Most expensive...not really sure, I don't generally spend huge amounts of money on TF's unless it's already the MSRP, so I could safely say any one of the Supremes I have.

    Whoa I second that, fer real Sol? the real TF Victory Saber from the japanese G1 series? how's the quality like?


    As for me the cheapest TF was MP Grimlock for $104 USD only (& that's inclusive of shipping).

    The most Ex I've ever paid on any TFs is the same as Roanstalker, RID Omega prime for $160 USD. but it's totally worth it imo.

    Cheapest: If I had to have spent money, then it would be ROTF Legends Ratchet (I made him into a custom First Aid). If I didn't have to spend money, then I've gotten a LOT of them from a fellow TransFan in return for some custom detailing.

    Most expensive: Alternator Skids, $26 (including shipping from e-Bay). Worth every penny in my book, but then again Alternators are some of my favorite figures of all time.

    Cheapest was probably an ROTF Scout. Other than that, not too sure (unless you count any "free" figures after a BOGO(1/2 / Free) sale ^_^

    Most expensive, SO FAR :p , has been my SDCC Soundwave.
