    Which are the rarest G2s and should definitely be picked up as soon as the chance presents itself?

    (Other than the unreleased G2 Protectobots and Stunticons)

    You're digging into a giant can of worms.

    The rarest are G2 protectobots which were never released. Then there's the super duper rare G2 menasor that a member of this form has. Some of these go for over thousands of dollars.

    If it's retailed stuff that's rare, then that's something else. :lol

    For some reason, I rarely see G2 Ramjet and Starscream for sale- esp. carded.

    Some of the Dinobots are pretty hard to find as well, e.g., the original color G2 Dinobots or the teal Grimlock.

    G2 Slingshot, just because finding one intact is a nightmare since practically his entire body is made of gold plastic.

    The same pretty much goes for Laser Rod Electro. I have him.... mostly intact, but unfortunately he's crumbling more n more. I wish they'd re-issue the laser rods with better plastic, or update them in the Universe line or something.

    Draven and Mugen got to my answer before I did. You may have to settle for these two in pieces and just keep an eye out for replacements/spares in the future.

    the megatron and starscream set. its the same as the beast wars 2 starscream and bb.

    but it was first released if at all at retail first as starscream and megatron. the figures have their names on them.

    good luck with that one.

    About 10 years ago, at a local supermarket's outlet store for their toy aisles. I got him for $1.99 MOSC. Along with him I got all the other G2 Laser Rods, Cyberjets, and Laser Cycles and some BW era figures.

    I think that the red Snarl (or is it Slag?) is one of the rarest guys that made it to retail.

    The GPS guys are probably harder to find unbroken though.

    Maybe I just got lucky on ebay but I got the turquoise grimmy and red slag for $45 in c8.5. <3 auctions that end at 4:00 am. Grimlock was complete but I'm having a bitch of a time finding a g2 gun and sword for slag.

    Gold Plastic Syndrome. Over time the gold pieces on many G1 and G2 toys become brittle and break easily. Look what happed to my old G1 Bristleback when I tried to put his gun in his fist for my sale thread:
