    Yes, I've scoured e-bay for the average worth of the following figs., but I'd like to hear what the fandom has to say. I don't put much stock into e-bay prices these days. What would you pay for these items? I'd like to hear what you have to say!

    1. MISB 2002 New Year Special Convoy (TF-01) - I'd say it's about a C-10 or at least a C-9.5

    2. MISB 16 Special ("16-S") Megatron - very nice, maybe a high C-8 or close to a C-9

    3. MOSC Generation 2 Sureshot (European release of G2 Hero Prime) - a bit rough around the card's edges, a minor crack in the plastic on the back, maybe a high C-6, C-7

    4. MISB G2 Optimus Prime - tape has peeled off both sides, but never opened; box a bit worse for wear, plastic bubble with visible pockmarks and slight ripples - if I'm lucky, a C-5, low C-6

    5. MISB RID Rapid Run - probably a C-8/C-9

    6. MISB RID Railspike - probably a C-8/C-9

    7. MISB RID Midnight Express - probably a C-8/C-9

    Thanks, gang!

    RID trains should only be around $20 - $30 US each.

    Yeah really not too sure about the rest.

    Sureshot isn't really any more sought after than it's North American version, so the price would probably be about the same.

    It's been a while since I paid much attention, but last I saw I'd say around $130-150 for the first two. The trains... the $20-30 sounds right to me. The rest, no idea.

    Ebay:
    I think you're big pieces are 1 and 2. If they are sealed and in C-9 to C10 contition then the value range I'd say is as follows.

    1. 125-150.00
    2. 100-125.00
    They are both nice renditions of the figures.

    Interesting....see, already the prices you guys are hypothesizing are quite a bit below psychotic e-bay prices.

    I actually thought Sureshot might be a worth more since he seems to be hard to find loose or otherwise. Of course, since he varies very, very little from the U.S.-released Prime version, it may be hard for many to tell it apart, I suppose.

    I dont know about those prices on Rail Racer. I tried to dump my RiD Rail Racer MISB set for $60 ($20 each) over Xmas and I got zero interest in them, even threw in free shipping and still no takers.

    As for the G1 Prime and Megatron you have there I would say at least $150 if not $200 for each, maybe more depending on what the markets like for them right now.
