    I have the season 1 and season 2 part 1 sets. But I also I have the complete chinese DVD set, so I really don't need the rhino DVDs anymore. So I was thinking about selling them. I looked at Ebay, and the prices are around $40 for season 1, and $60 for season 2 part 1. but most auctions dont have any bids, leading me to think that they're either overpriced, or that there just isnt a lot of demand for these things. am I right?

    If I did sell the two sets I have, what should I expect to get for them?

    I remember someone locally (Ottawa, Canada) selling all of his (5 sets) for $250. I couldn't really guess though. I know I have seen some people looking for them in the sale forum recently, maybe try trading them. I'd buy them if I didn't already have them all if that makes you feel better. Goodluck:)

    Sounds about right, they are somewhat rare as they are technically out of print.

    Holy crap. I'm selling mine and buying that Chinese set.

    I'd have enough money left over to buy myself MP Megatron AND Skywarp, and probably the SDCC Alt Rodimus too to complete my Alts collection.

    Yeah, demand for RHINO's set has plummeted since the less expensive/far superior quality chinese set came out.

    About time China gave us a version of something that's BETTER than ours. ;)

    One time a little over a year ago, I saw a Season 3 part 2 set go for over a hundred dollars , which had over a dozen bids.....

    I thought they were the same quality, what is better about the Chinese set?

    Rhino's Season 1 set was looted with animation errors that weren't even there in the original broadcasts. It's a shame because that was always my fav season of Transformers.

    I paid about $250 for mine (from Peaugh); I usually see each Season/part go for about $50 - $60 on eBay every so often. Any Canucks know how much these retailed (in CAN $$) when they first came out? I seem to recall around $90 + taxes, but I'm not so sure.

    i had all mine pre-ordered at the discounted early bird price, and i paid $70-$80 for mine, so $90 sounds about right. i actually treasure my set, and would never sell them.

    I'd consider keeping them if I actually stood any kind of chance of getting the others. as-is, its a tribute to failure.
