    How much does this guy go for? I haven't seen one for sale in a while. And last time I saw one sell was for $500. I'm looking to get one but I need to know what the going rate is. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Shooting from the hip, I'd say $6-700 based on condition.

    But I don't deal in Botcon exclusives much.

    $600-800 now. He may have dipped to $500 last summer briefly but he has gone for over $1000 a couple of times since then.

    Oh wow. Looks like if I decide to get him, I won't be buying anything for a while lol.

    And yes, it was a long time ago that I saw him sell. I've been out of collecting for a while.

    :lol 

    *Reminded of the eBay auction that saw him sold for USD $1600+*

    To date, he has to be the most expensive Botcon piece.

    Someone must have heard Optimus Prime's voice in their head: "You must have him... no matter the cost." :tongue:

    I'm glad I got him a couple years ago. Now he's worth more than double. Thanks Shane for the tech specs.

    Yeah he's one I'd love to own some day. He's very expensive though.

    I'm not sure why the big fuss for this megatron mold, I had him and paid around $700 for him and then was afraid to even touch him since he was so valuable. However, I did put him on my shelf with the rest of the megatrons and he didn't quite stand out as a favorite like i thought he would so after losing my job and losing all interest for this figure I decided to let him go in a trade. I kinda regret it for some weird reason but I'll get another one someday.

    Wow, simply amazing. So he's going for SG Prime money (and more). Makes me wish I could have went to the BotCons for 2006-2008. Those exclusives go for so much money. I have only been able to go to the 2009 BotCon. Unfortunately, the only chase piece from that set is the Sweeps 3-pack.
