    Don't worry, you're among good company here. I primarily invest in Iron Factory, went so far as to sell my CHUG collection to get started. The smaller scale is just so versatile and the figure designs are second to none imo.

    Welcome aboard! Hope you stay for awhile.

    Best bet is to check Robotoybase frequently. They get older figures in stock on a regular basis. They’ll charge you for it too. :)

    Hardly. Usually it’s $12-$20 shipping and it gets delivered very quickly. Larger items though- yeah shipping can get expensive.

    But what I really meant is that the price for rare items is higher than retail.

    They are essentially charging eBay prices.

    Not really, IF Ultimate Commander and Starscream were going for around twice the price on eBay compared to what Robotoybase charged.

    Maybe the low end of of eBay, or most like just depends on the figure.

    I think they had racing bros for about $130, add the $10-20 shipping you are right around the same price.

    Wish Sunstreaker would get reissued (I’m surprised MFT hasn’t bootlegged it). I have no interest in these characters, but I’ll probably get them as a substitute for Sunstreaker in the mold.

    IF will get my Runbros money in the legends scale. I won't need a G1er set.

    so indecisive with these. On one hand I really like the mold, but on the other hand I already own the Sunstreaker and Wheeljack is on the way. These have really great headsculpts and color choices, but then again I could definitely use the money on something else. hmmm

    Just buy them now before they are sold out. If you change your mind you can easily resell them later, IF aftermarket is always hot

    God DAMN Kapow has already run out of stock of these.
    Really surprising that IF s the first to make 3P battlechargers, and considering how these are repaints with slight remoulds (heads), this must've been a low risk/high gain investment for them.
