    I found this set for pretty cheap on craigslist and I've gotta say finding any info on these guys is pretty scarce. Their the construcons 2 packs from universe line. All I know is theirs only 4 of them and their repaints from RID line. Can anyone please tell me if their even worth anything? What kind of value they might have?

    Their value is in the eyes of the beholder

    When they were on the shelf still, I think I saw them marked down half off at a Target store (I don't remember if they were Target exclusives). It might have been 30%, not 50%, though.

    Aye, thats the one. Thx for that website btw i was trying to find a good one for looking up info. I just got this guy in a craigslist ad with a couple of others and was having a hard time finding out if he had any sort of value. I have no interest in this guy though so he's prob gonna end up as trade fodder or ebay.

    $20-$30 for the set loose, nowhere near the value of classics devastator.

    Would you believe they JUST gave these guys a backstory after 9 years?

    From the Ask Vector Prime Facebook page:

    Viron is the RiD continuity, so the Universe Constructicons are the Rid Build Team with new personalities thanks to the Robo Smasher.

    We are in a hobby that's 30+ years old, a 9 year old toy get a bio and you think it's a long time?

    I guess my point was missed. It's great the toy got a bio ... it's also remarkable you found a specific thread from 2010 to bump to provide the information. Just trying to give you props for finding the thread, I guess?

    Well then, thank you. I've been reading threads here for a long time. I know most of them existed, and about where they are. I guess I don't realize they are that old. I'd rather post a continuation to a thread on topic that start a fresh one for a minor bio.

    This post by Vector Prime gives a LOT of character clairification to the Universe toy line though. It's going to result in the revision of about 20-30 pages on TFwiki. A lot of characters now have histories and we know they come from the RiD universe now.
