    How much difference do you guys think it would make if someone were to take some time off from collecting Japanese G1 exclusives and start again after 2 years from now?

    Do you think that these toys have hit a price plateau?

    Or do you think they will skyrocket some more?

    I'm sure the price would continue to go up as the quantity diminishes. But no one can really know.

    most likely up, unless they are the item is reissued, ko'd, reproed or a huge warehouse find. then it will go down. prime examples star convoy, soundblaster, twincast, stepper, sky garry, the 6 rare headmasters now.....luckily it is easy to spot the differences between real and repro.

    probably up? What is it your looking to get in a few years? You also got to consider TF 3 is probably going to be out by then as well. That will probably cause prices to go up again.

    I can't see the prices of Late Japanese G1's going up that much higher up to TF3. I've been monitoring/buying some of them in recent years & they've seemed to reach a plateau since the '07 movie (which is definitely a good thing :) ).

    G1-Junkie, If you're planning to wait 2 years, I'd do your research & save up every spare buck you can - You're definitely gonna need it. :lol
