    well i was reading up some info on fortress maximus the other day and it said he was 100 dollars when 1st released. So i thought how much would those other big transformers cost. So if any1 here knows how mych sixchanger sixshot cost when 1st came out. How much trypticon and metroplex were when they 1st came out,how much the combiner teams gift sets cost when they came out.How much jetfire,skylinx,omegasupreme were when they 1st came out. How much Scorponok was when he was 1st released in 1987 and how much optimus prime and megatron were when they came out. Lol i nkow that is a bit much but try 2 answer this please i'm not interested in buying them their prices now are like 5 times greater now than back then i'm just curious what there original prices were back then.

    Let's just have a good time.

    No need to start anything.

    And I agree with guard convoy.

    Considering most of the "inflation calculator" online things I've seen nearly double the price going from 1984 to today, Fort Max scares me. :)

    You're too high on the minibots.
    I never paid more than $3 for one on the high end. They were on sale sometimes for $2.50-$2.75.
