    Just looking for other folks' 2 cents here. I'm seeing Titanium Magnus - the G1 version complete with trailer - floating around on ebay for SALE prices of roundabout $75 or so, and COMPLETED AUCTIOn prices of like $50.

    So, it kinda seems like the common consensus is that, since he was part of the 6" titaniums and near the end of a line that wasn't stocked very well, he is in some sort of demand.

    ...but is he in high enough demand that I could probably sell him and not have to put out additional bank if I went on eBay and picked up a City Commander? Looks like the City Commanders are by and large going for $100+.

    Honestly, It looked like you answered your own question.

    A=$50-$75

    B=$100+

    Can I get B for the price of A? Answer: no.

    Of course, you could get super luck like that guy who traded from a used cellphone to a car using Craigslist by doing over 13+ trades, each better than the last.

    Most probably not. And why would you want to get rid of Titanium Magnus? He's awesome.

    Really, I guess the gist of my question was more along the lines of "Does titanium Magnus sell for MORE than this?" I'm not sure if my ~$75 price range is right or if it should be closer to ~$85.

    I'm totally coming off like a pennypincher when I say this - and fuck, I ain't got a problem with that - but $15 out of pocket to trade up to CC is, at least in my opinion, better than $25 out of pocket.

    No arguments there - I think he looks badass. But I'm a poor SOB and I kinda like the looks of City Commander.

    the thing also is that its not only how much the figure is worth, but also the demand for it. Though I know they are interrelated, from observing this board and what people want, I have seen relatively low in requesting a Titanium UM even if they are rare and expensive, compared to a Commander FP.

    Titanium G1 Ultra Magnus an awesome figure indeed. You should hold on to him.

    In my sales thread, I have a MISB City Commander 2009 release for sale in case you decide to get one. :)

    The way I see it, I kinda like the look of City Commander but I know that if I sell Titanium Magnus I'll end up missing him like crazy and ending up an absurd ammount of money to get another one. I might be biased on this because I got him at retail back in the day, but hey thems is the opinions.

    All right, so that's cool and definitely worth seeing. It looks like maybethe delta between the two would end up being around $10-$20 max. That's not that bad. Thanks y'all.

    I agree

    IMHO,Titanium 6 inch G-1 Ultra magnus,Titanium 6 inch rodimus prime & titanium 6 inch scourge are the most valuable of the whole titanium 6 inch TF toy line lot.

    The 6Ti comes and goes, I've seen it go as low as $40 and as high as $90. It may fluctuate, but City Commander only goes up. While I like the 6Ti version, if I had to choose between that and CC, it would be CC hands down - opinions may vary, but I wouldn't have any reservations about trading the 6Ti towards the purchase of CC, even if it took more money after selling the 6Ti.

    I have both and the City Commander is X10 better than the Titanium. I have the whole Titanium line and none them them are must have's. If you can do this deal, don't hesitate.

    He would look even better w/Myclone Magnus' head.
