    Well, the whole MISB thing is a scam. There was no tape on the boxes of the exclusives that year. So none of them are sealed. As for price, I'm not sure if that's a deal or not. I got mine at the con so I don't know what they are worth.

    That's about Average, he's not worth what he used to be, and with Classics 2.0 Sideswipe coming, I think he will drop more

    At least the plastic window still looks good. That plastic they used that year was so freakin' cheap & brittle!

    What's the going price for Sunstreaker? I want to get him too, bu do you think I should wait it out? If Classics 2.0 is as popular as round one was, his price might go up....

    The only Sunstreaker I ever paid any attention to went for $70. Judging from the price of Sideswipe I would say that's high.

    Sunstreaker was alot rarer as he was the hotel toy. So he's going to go for more.

    I believe Sunstreaker goes for around $50. He was fetching $100 to $150 for a while but has since dropped off.

    Sunstreaker... best I can remember $40-50ish I think. It's been ages since I watched though.

    I know that ever since 2004 (when I started going to the cons) that all the figures came MIB. Other than the '94 breakdown I think all the exclusives came MIB... However I thought I heard some where that there was a year or two where the figures came MISB.... but somehow I doubt it.

    Yeah, it was hardly any stronger than fucking plastic wrap

    Sunstreaker has proven a bitch for me - I've never even seen him on auction on eBay anytime I've looked. I'd love to get him to go with the Sideswipe but oh well

    Like Sideswipe, Sunstreaker's price has been going down recently. I don't ever look for them on eBay, but I saw them at BotCon for $40-50, IIRC (while Sideswipes were $25-35). I was lucky enough to get a 'Streaker from Paul Hitchens at BC'05 for a mere $30. (Also got CatSCAN for $50 and Apelinq for $45! :D )

    Oh, and:
    QFT. I don't think there have been any sealed BC/OTFCC exclusives for at least the last 5 years.

    FYI - my Shokaract, Apelinq, Tigatron, Arcee, CatSCAN, Jetstorm, Megazarak & Sentinel Maximus all came sealed...

    Wow... is that all those are worth? I may just end up opening them, though it'd likely destroy the boxes to do so.


    How much for the OTFCC two pack? I need to know if I can justify opening those too.

    Those two ladies flooded the secondary market the same way Sideswipe did, so open away. Though I'm not sure on the exact prices...

    I've been trying to sell this set for a week and a bit now at $40, had to drop it to $35 and still no takers.

    I think some of the value problem was due to the downright shit packaging, the VERY shoddy paint quality, and other QC issues.
