any idea on how much they worth? i was offered a pair.
Get them! Or let me buy them! They were never released so a standard 'going price' is probably pretty hard to come across.
are they that rare?
I guess I'm not sure... they weren't released, but there might be a lot of production samples floating around. I don't think they show up for sale very often. Interested in selling your second set?
2 pairs for $25 is a steal. The fifth wave were never released at general retail, so there's only the packaged samples. It's possible the market value will dip if a cache of packaged but never distributed ones turn up, but they're never going to drop below a price that's a bit over what the retail value could have been.
Ill take the second set off your hands
Cool. Thanks for the info Edgewise and Sol Fury, i thought they are some regular repaints.
For those who interested, sorry they are for my personal collection and not for sale.
Better question is, does your supplier have any more that he could hook us up with some?
I fifth that.
yes Add me to the list and does he have Backtrack? (the 3rd of the cancelled scout's)
You're lucky man, I've been searching for those two for a long time. Enjoy them.
The person i bought from is a chinese seller on taobao
Awesome, if all goes well, I can add those two to my collection. I wonder if "wave 6" would have had any other energon combiner limbs.
I'm one of the people that would have loved to see these 2 and Backtrack released. It's a shame they were cancelled.
Okay. Wow. Look at all the stuff this guy has. Packaged stuff, much of it.

Zealottoyou, you'll have to let us know if you get them or not.
I was told that Taobao is bad for false listings, as people will list stuff they don't really have in hand.
The seller had at least 3 pairs, and i took 2. It should arrive sometime soon unfortunately it will stay in my wife's hands for a good while
As for the false listing, what happens is a lot of people never delist things sold. That guys is a sponsored seller on actoys so it should be fine.
It's amazing what a treasure trove of TFs Taobao is. Not just for otherwise-unattainable unreleased and upcoming stuff, but I saw a good smattering of stuff from all sorts of previous lines in unopened packages (okay, some were no doubt KO reproductions). Also quite a good amount of Botcon/club exclusives, both with and without the file cards. I found a second seller with the unreleased movie scout wave and put in an order for a Backtrack. It should be on its way to me now.
The downside is it's even harder to search in than Yahoo Japan Auction is. It's not that hard to find Japanese names of things, in Chinese forget it, plus I think half the stuff they don't even really list them under their actual names, just vehicle mode descriptions.
i'd love to have those two... love the energon limbs... i'll have to keep an eye out and see if i can snag those guys eventually... or maybe hasbro will just use them again in a new combiner release... i'd love to see a simple remold of faction symbols and add a tank and helicopter to the superion set, and same with bruticus... he should have some jets... or even if they swapped limbs from devestator too they could make some fun sets just using the existing limbs...
Digging through old Hasbro Q&A sessions, it was hinted that these 3 scouts were produced and packaged, but they were still looking for somewhere to sell them.
