I've noticed that the Transformers Generations figures are climbing in moderate value, especially the lines that aren't on the shelves anymore. Personally, I think that the Decepticon Jets will be worth the most, ie Acid Storm, Star Scream, Thrust, Dirge etc etc. However, I'm not sure if this is only momentary value or collection-worthy value.
any thoughts? predictions maybe?
I think the seekers will always command a high price (although i really think they are due an update soon) as will Ultra Magnus and Hotrod due to their Fans project upgrades , as of more recent figures Windcharger and Warpath have both been popular , the potential to troop build and army of Junkions from Wreckgar and his repaints is going to keep their price high and the up coming trailer and armor for G2 Prime is sure to increase his value when it is released.
Talk about a surprise. The RoTF Bruticus having artificial value now on eBay over $200 because of the Fansproject Crossfire set Munitioner and Explorer. I regret not picking up that RotF Bruticus now because it appeared foolish lol
Also, I was curious as to if you're an avid collector out in the stores hunting down figures or if you just purchase them online?
Fansproject really did a good job on those figures they are certainly worth picking up even without the rest of the Combaticons then waiting to get a good deal on the rest , I think a few of those ROTF sets may still be in stores on clearance , I still see lots of ROTF on shelves but I havent been lucky enough to find one of those yet.
I am a collector but I only pick up the odd piece here and there, I used to buy alot from ebay replacing childhood toys and getting all the ones I never had but since the movies came out prices have got so high, I tend to buy things in stores when they are on sale now rather than hunting down the latest toys although I do always check out whats new in the toy isles .
