    looking for a price check on this guy. i know that his price has climbed quite a bit with Protector on the way but i wasnt sure how high he'd gone. i've seen people trying to get some ridiculous prices for him recently. i have one US Classics Rodimus and a Henkei and i only plan on keepin one of them for use with Protector so id say ill be selling the classics one soon if i can get a decent amount out of him. Thanks for your help guys!

    I think the price usually hovers between "that seems a little high" and "are you shitting me?!?!"

    Seriously, I've seen them go anywhere from $60-$80 lately. Waaaay overpriced for this figure, considering that you used to be able to score one for under $10. That's the only downside to FP's awesome upgrade sets, the effect they have on prices of the base figures.

    i know just a few days ago i saw someone trying to sell one for about $90 with free shipping!! so i figured that probably was an inflated price. well i may post a thread or throw him up on ebay either today or tomorrow and try make a little off of him, i feel like $80 is a little high myself

    I would put it on ebay and let the market take it where it will.

    Oh wow. I thought he was going for about $40
    $80 is just crazy. Makes me want to sell mine.

    USD $80?? HOW DARE YOU even suggest those numbers in the first place?! :eek: 

    Now quickly edit your post & delete those numbers so that the boys at the Items For Sale/Trade thread can sell theirs (Henkeis) for USD $100 upwards. :lol

    ^^ :lol 

    I'm after a Henkei one, but the most I'll shell out for it, is around half of what they are currently going for now.
    I really don't buy into the whole 'protector kit makes him so valuable now' hype,
    my experience is that whatever you're after, a good/fair deal can always be had if you're just willing to wait just a little.

    On ebay, one recently sold for less than $20 (incl a classic Starscream) another (henkei) for $50 something...

    Wonder what the rumored exclusive 3 pack (Rodimus, Galvatron, Cyclonus) will do to the going price.

    Crash it, hopefully. Can't wait to see what the 3-pack version looks like.,

    Yeah, I just saw that. Hopefully this will get the prices down to sane level again.
    Either way, as I've yet to get any of these three, I'll go for the 3-pack over a single pack anyhow.

    If you're planning to sell him for maximum profit, sell him now. Once that 3-pack comes out, it'll either lower his value or have no effect, but better rich than sorry.
