    I'm considering selling my Botcon 08 Shattered Glass Boxset as it's just sitting in my cupboard gathering dust and I could do with the cash.

    I have a look on ebay and the prices seem higher than I expected (which I suppose is good), but there aren't many listed so I was just wondering what the going rate was in general.

    main reason the set sells for so much is because of prime and rodimus

    Sold mine with a BIN for around 800. So if you need money and don't mind parting with it, should have no trouble selling it.

    Unfortunately not got Rodimus, as it's just the boxset none of the extra figures, but nice to hear that the prices I'm seeing (£500/$800 plus) aren't abnormal.

    It also explains why I was seeing prime go for £250/$400.

    What about Alpha Trion? (who I've similarly got stored away)

    Yeah the boxset came with Grimlock, Starscream, Optimus, Jazz, Razorclaw, and Goldbug. Rodimus came with Megatron and Divebomb.

    I've seen Alpha Trion priced around 300-400 one ebay. Someone can correct me if I am wrong.

    08 Boxset is around $800 with the breakdown roughly $400 Prime, $100 Starscream, $100, Grimlock, $100 Jazz, $100 Goldbug. The value may drop some when Generations Jazz is released but it should be balance by increases in the others.

    Not sure about Alpha Trion's current price. It may be priced at 300-400 but I think $200+ has been the going rate.
