    Thirty bucks for a BOTCON EXCLUSIVE?!

    That is a hell of a deal IMO. I don't think he cost any less than twice that much in that set he came in.

    ENVY!!!!!!!! I LOVE Botcon Skyquake's colorscheme! Yet I can't find it for that price! Even if I did I don't have any money to buy it, though. You got a VERY good deal.

    aside from the sweeps, this years exclusives are beyond worthless, but that is the lowest i've seen any of them go (and stupid me is sitting on two complete box sets)

    For value: sealed. You might be able to pick up a good condition Energon Starscream complete off of eBay for a reasonable price as well.

    that depends , do you collect for there potential future resale value or for the love of the transformers, and never intend to sell them if selling it is in your future plans the keep it sealed if not free it from its prison

    I bid on this. Didn't really want it so I saved a couple bucks by not bidding one more. Anyway. I bet it's worth it for the rare factor.

    Open.

    It's a toy for crying out loud. Also it's one hell of a mold too.

    Seriously, that exclusive is clocking in between $25-$35 right now on ebay. Once in a while you see one go for $40, maybe, but he's starting to average $30 or so. You definitely got a decent deal.

    I'm wondering if his value will go up after this saturation ends. But if you won him, I'd open him if I were you. (I actually have one sealed, but I got it AT the 'Con and intend to sell so that's different).
