    As long as it's all original parts, it's a decent deal.

    seems a slight bit high, maybe $10. For original vs. reissue check out a) long missile length and b) whether it says Japan (original) or China (reissue) in the manufacturer's stamp.

    No, that's right around ballpark. I think I paid $76 for mine from Sporton Morton last year and it was a C9.5 almost 10.

    And if you don't like the stickers just order some Reprolabels! I reproed a ton of my G1s (after a good cleaning with some Goo Gone) and they all look like they're just a few days old instead of 20+ years.

    I heard thundercracker under the same condition is more expensive than skywarp, is that true? What about starscream?

    They should all be around the same price, Screamer maybe a little more because of his popularity.

    Starscream would be the most expensive, then the other hard plastic wingers, then the soft plastic wingers.

    I got these 2 in nice mint condition (missing small missiles for both) for about 42 and 30 us (actually in cdn, but that's the us values), so I guess that was a pretty good deal:

    Found them thru ebay but off a guy from near me in my city (Toronto) so I paid him in cdn dollars and picked them up off him in person.

    Yeah I was very happy with that purchase, their condition is pretty much fresh out of packaging, I had a hard time believing SS was an original for a bit:
