    SG junkion Wreck-Gar
    SG G2 Optimus Prime
    SG G2 Ultra Magnus
    SG junkion scrap iron





    my vote is Wreck-Gar (has the most interesting back story *bio card*

    2nd would be SG Ultra Magnus...same as above but 2nd place

    First is going to be SG Optimus the second a Tanker comes out for it. Why? BEcause it's not only going to be a nice novelty, but it's going to be easier to obtain and better looking than the standard classics voyager SG Optimus.

    I think the junkions as a whole set will be second, especially with the possibility of Maiden-Japan add-ons. Classic Con troopbuilders don't come everyday.

    SG Optimus is probably the logical answer, but I'm going to go with the Red Tracks.

    I'd say SG Magnus and SG Prime will probably be about even once the (inevitable) repainted Battle Tankers come out for their respective figures. I'd also say the Junkions will probably go up in price eventually.

    Honestly, though, I can't see any of the other figures going up in value. I've seen SG Treadshot go for 45 bucks shipped on eBay, and I've seen SG Octopunch go for even less. I'm not sure why people are still selling Straxus for so much, though.

    ebay it's self has been seeing all sorts of TF's dropping everything price wise lately...i saw a MISBag flamewar go for $120 yesterday...thought i would never see that...

    and i scored the Straxus SG TF for $61...though i would fall out of my chair on that one....placed a low bid on it and forgot about it...and then got the email telling me i won LOL.

    This. I don't collect SG unless it's a dual-purpose deco and even I've considered picking these up eventually just because they look nice.

    If SG G2 Optimus had been poorly received I think MakeToys would've passed on a Battle Tanker redeco for it, but since it's been fairly well liked even from non-SG fans at this point I think it's inevitable.

    SG Optimus Prime as a single figure

    He's a newer version of a very expensive, if not the most expensive figure in the first Shattered Glass set, and because he's a Prime, more collectors will be after him. On a per figure basis on eBay and on Junkion, he's already commanded the highest price. Only going to go up with the inevitable Battle Tanker repaint release.

    Junkions will be worth the most as a set

    Mmmmmm SG Battle Tanker(s)! I wonder if they do a BT for SG Magnus, how the head will turn out.. I'd probably not swap the heads on him or SG G2 Prime either way though.

    This. Everyone should of been able to predict this and if you still haven't gotten one theres little time left. I'm glad I picked up magnus and prime. Wish I could of picked up SG straxus and junkions but I can live with that.

    right there.

    I don't see Kick-off going down anytime soon just because the paint job is gourgous

    The colors of the original still match up to the current Battle Tanker so I doubt they will do anything there, but a new head of the crystal skull with some light grey edging might be very sexy
