    I couldnt find one on ebay and i know it is the center of Bruticus, which at least at one point was big. I picked him up at a dollar store for $5 a long while back and he kinda disappeared into the background of my Decepticons. and now i am wondering if he is worth anything now?

    It's only worth anything if the buyer doesn't have a dollar store or Big Lots around him. If so: Teeeeeeen dollah!

    Energon/Universe Barricade can fetch up to $55 MOSC, $35 Loose.
    **As of 4 months ago which is about when I sold off a few spare Universe Barricade figures.
    I don't think that price has changed much though, not everyone has or knows about Biglots and Fansproject Bruticus is still very popular.

    This. I actually got one from a "super" friend on here who picked one up for me a few months ago.

    I saw a loose one sell on eBay on June 17 for $22.50. I thought it was an aberration, honestly, as common as the mold is.

    They released the exact same figure in Universe just a couple of years ago. So unless yours is MOSC, I can't imagine you getting much.

    That is crazy ridiculous. I bought the universe one for $7 on a whim. I didn't realize that I could have been siting on a small fortune if I'd purchased more.

    Yeah, about £30-£40 loose in my recent experience. In a local market you could translate sterling for dollars directly I would imagine.

    If i find a bunch at biglots i'll sale them for about 20 bucks a pop.(the same price i got one for at time travlers MOC) But ive paid 30 for one on here and lucked up and got the tcc one for 15 both from sellers from here. I fell that mold is a great base fig for any of the scramble city combiners leaders so i need as many as i can get.
