    I wanted to sell my collectors edition Ironhide and Ratchet and hopped on ebay for an around about current price... Saw a lot of Takara/Tommy ones up there for cheap. Are these real or bootlegs or what?

    Thanks

    They're real. Ironhide and Ratchet are among those Encore figures that sold like crap and were heavily discounted.

    However, if you are buying on ebay, just be sure to double check where the figures are shipping from.

    The value of the ehobby Ironhide/Ratchet's has collapsed since the Encore re-issue. Although never a popular mold, they were worth good money, only 1000 sets were made. BBTS had Ratchet on sale for $100 last year, before Encore, he was worth about three times that.

    I'm a big fan of Ratchet, but I'm in the minority.
