    Ludicrous. Wildrider was already fetching near 400 before this was announced.

    $400 for Wildrider even before this? Wow...I remember when I got him about a year and a half ago, maybe, for $130 or so. I knew the Shattered Glass stuff was expensive, but I had no idea Wildrider jumped that much.

    I've only seen a few on ebay since Jan 2010. 400 was the highest, but average still around 250ish. The rest were pulled off ebay for private sales i'm assuming.

    The last auction for SG Rodimus ended near USD $500.

    Henkei Wildrider's pretty :crazy:  these days too. Used to have some dudes selling this piece at my local flea mart but eversince the news had gotten out to 'em people, Wildriders are either snatched up (despite their already-high asking price) OR hidden away quickly. :lol

    you could always hold out hopes for the protector trailer/armor being recolored in TCC 2011 Rid sideburn blue colors.

    or you could buy a few rit black & grey color dye boxes & dye your classics 1.0 rodimus toy in black & grey colors colors.

    :scalper  Stuff like this almost takes the fun out of collecting... but, then again, to each their own. I can't imagine paying that much for a single figure. Some people have really deep pockets and have no qualms about spending that money on collectibles. :2c: o:2c:

    Really digging the goattee. Never saw pics of these. Definetly not a $400+ figure, but hey, crazier things have happened in the fandom.

    Oh, they're nice, definitely, but nowhere near $300-400 nice.
    Guess I should just be happy I'm not into Shattered Glass or expensive redecos! :thumbs2:
