    SG Rodimus had already been fairly expensive before Protector/SS. I seem to recall seeing him for at least $150, sometimes up to $300. SS just added another $200+ to the asking prices.

    At release, you could have gotten it around 40-60. Then it took the normal route of price rising, being a classics with a unique and less common deco. It rose to about 90-150$. When Scythe was released, Then the price went to 400+ immediately.

    Tsk, it's too bad Botcon can't do re-releases. Sigh, guess that's one figure I'll never get. Just can't justify paying that much for a single figure.

    I 100% agree. While that Botcon goatee Hot Rod is a pretty cool figure, the rest of the Shattered Glass repaints are stupid & totally pointless. It's as though that year Fun Pub were totally bereft of ideas & the only thing that popped into their heads was a bunch of hideous repaints that made no sense whatsoever...

    If only the rest of fandom felt that way, I could go and get the figures I wanted cheap :lol  I have to admit though I'm not a fan of the other bots aside from Optimus, Rodimus, Megatron and Starscream. Sideswipe in particular, while a great resemblance, is a real brick.
