    I have a deal in place with someone who will be buying several the the Takara Bookstyle Re-issues from me. I was just wondering what the going prices would be on these. Thanks for any of your feed back.

    Sorry, forgot to add that they were MISB and never opened, just displayed on a shelf.

    I still can't understand why the Prime costs as much as the MP-4 version. Dwarfed in size and yet more expensive? Weird.

    (fanboy) Cuz hes G1 in a JApaneses MISB!!!!!¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ (/fanboy)

    It's as absurd as BBTS selling those 2 inch Spike/Sparkplug toys for $35+, as absurd as people paying $200 for Botcon TC, and the existence of AFA. When it comes to toy fandom, nothing makes sense.

    He would be if his truck mode looked better. He was awesome when he was first released, but the engineering of the later MPs make him the weakest IMO. Starscream has a crazy accurate bot mode AND a realistic alt mode. I think Prime needs to be redone.

    TFC-00 is the best because he's a G1 reissue and has more extras than any other release. So when he said it's the best Prime, he meant the best G1 Prime out there.

    What about Energon Optimus Prime? (Minus the trailer and limbs that he comes with, of course) Just gotta fix the proportions a little bit; slim down the girth on those legs, and then beef up the torso.

    :crazy:  The best Reissue G1 Prime is the New Year's Edition. Blue eyes, blue windshield. It comes with the matrix, two guns, and an Action Master. I regret selling mine. New Year's > TFC #0

    Not sure what the actual market value is for any of them, but with the exception of Prime they all look like reasonable prices I'd be willing to pay for those (if I didn't already have them). Prime seems a little high, but just about any reissue Prime seems to be a hot item, so I don't know.

    Well, I did the best I could by looking at several WEB sites and EBAY and getting an average price. If anyone else has anymore input, feel free to post and let me know.

    Good day everyone.

    Well we can all debatt if it is worth the money but the point is still the = Prime is Expensiv and if you want a complete TFC you will have to pay up.

    Insane Galvatron...one who understood what I mean :) 

    THe NY convoy is also a great reissue prime but I still hold 0 a little bit better then NY but those two hold the top. The reason the NY convoy aint equally expensiv is IMO that many ppl have the TFC and since the line is dead they want all TFC and I myself would be hunting for 0 prime myself if I hade all others except Prime. The TFC is just not complete with any of them missing

    I think #0 Prime beats out NY Convoy only slightly. As much as I like the blue eyes and windshield and matrix, the more original toy accurate yellow eyes along with the ax make it slightly better. Now if NY Convoy had the ax, he would be the tops.
