i was just wondering what info you guys have about the production run numbers of some of these figures. for example, the hasbro ironhide and ratchet (i believe they were universe) originally they sold slowly, but once they were gone the prices in the secondary market rose substantially. so much so that when i preordered the igear ratchet and ironhide i was able to ebay my universe open loose complete pair to help pay for a substantial part of it. so do we get any official productions numbers from ANY of these companies (has/tak, 3rd parties) or is it just our own speculation? what do you think the numbers of those original hasbro (ratchet and ironhide) plus the takara versions will look like when compared to the numbers of the igear release? i dont mean to dedicate the whole conversation to the ironhide ratchet situation. id be interested in hearing any info on the topic of production numbers on transformers period.
