    G1 Jetfire - Pure white, has box but it's a bit worn, but complete - $179 is what they're asking

    G1 Rachet - Some wear, needs new stickers, still has missiles on tree - $30 I believe

    G1 Ironhide - Same as Rachet I think

    G1 Bluestreak - Has gun and minor wear - $50

    G1 Jazz - Minor wear - $30

    G1 Sideswipe - Minor wear - $15

    I plan on at least getting Sideswipe next time I'm there

    Those are an absolute steal if their chrome is good.

    Jetfire and Ratchet / Ironhide seem like good prices.

    Bluestreak and Jazz are a bit 'meh' for that price.

    Those sound good to me! I'd get the Jazz and the Sideswipe, myself. All the local shops here charge twice that and more!

    I'd bite on the Jetfire if I had the dough. Not a great price, but not a bad one either.

    Jetfire seems "ok" provided he still has the "whiteness" and is in good working order and complete and I also agree that you got a steal for Ironhide and Ratchet if the chrome is good.

    Bluestreak and Jetfire seem to be a bit much. Im getting mine for $25 and $90 respectively.

    depending on the condition of the toys and if they are complete they are really good prices with the exception of Jetfire. Just being complete and in the box he's probably 20-50 bucks overpriced.

    Sounds pretty high to me.

    G1 Rachet - Some wear, needs new stickers, still has missiles on tree - $30 I believe

    G1 Ironhide - Same as Rachet I think

    Sounds pretty good.

    G1 Bluestreak - Has gun and minor wear - $50
    Too high. Sealed reissues can be had for as much and likely for less. Plus if it's missing the launchers and missiles, then it's definitely too high.

    G1 Jazz - Minor wear - $30
    Maybe. I'd suggest a reissue instead though, a little more and you get it perfectly minty and with weapons.

    G1 Sideswipe - Minor wear - $15
    Same as above.

    Make sure Ratchet & Ironhide include the red post accessory before buying. That part is darn near half the value of the toy.

    Even then, is $30 really such a great price? Only if they are real nice condition, IMHO. I think it's a bit high for a toy that "needs new stickers".
