    They're pretty much all still worth around retail value - Astrotrain is probably worth less than retail and Ramjet more.

    Magnus/Skywarp would be worth $40+ easy.

    I don't know anbout Astrotrain, but given my recent experience trying to get hold of Ramjets on Ebay, they do seem to be fetching above retail, at least in the States. I didn't see many for sale on the UK Ebay, so I'm not sure what our going rate would be...

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Admittedly I've been watching the price range on them for some time but as RamRider said, theres not many floating around on ebay in the uk much and I cant seem to find many toy outlets that sell them still.
    The last time I saw one in a shop near me was at forbidden planet and they were selling a deluxe cliffjumper for approx £15.99 (Almost $28).

    I think i'll have to get them somewhat valued first then before selling them on.

    I think you're Cliffjumper would be worth about 2...2.50 shipped. I'll do you a favor and pay you 3.


    You don't have to thank me.

    Considering I didn't see half of them in stores here in Britland and had to rely on the kindness of pals either abroad or with access to better UK stores which did stock them, I can imagine quite a few people would be interested in the UK. At the very least I'm sure you could get retail prices on them since they're unopened, and more since they're not much available anymore.
    Maybe check some online stores and see what they're charging as a starting guideline.

    I'm planning to do that. I've listened to everyone elses advice which I highly appreciate and have managed to come up with a list of prices for each one. So the post should go up soon.
