When Did Prices Drop On Transformers Gen 1 Figures?
Omega Jetfire - Friday, April 15, 2011


So I was looking at the completed listings on eBay of G1 figures and I noticed ALOT of them are going for cheap now...though there are still some that command high prices. Reason I was looking is because I just recently lost my job and am considering selling my collection as a last resort. So when did everything start going for less? Join the Discussion

I mean top gem items like Predaking, Piranacon, Monstructor, Jetfire, Roadbuster, etc have dropped big time from looks of it. I realize that Predaking and Piranacon have been reissued but with the quality and color changes of those figures, you'd think that people would want the originals as they are better quality.

Thankfully I do have quite a bit of the items still commending top dollar like MEnasor, Shockwave, Sixshot, Punch/Counterpunch, Headmasters, etc.

So if I was to sell my collection as a last resort..Should I wait until DotM hype starts generating more buzz? As usually sales tend togo up during when the movie comes out.

What do you think caused G1 Prices to drop?
Recession
Reissues
New TFs
Boredom
Knock Offs
Redux
Other
All of the above
None of the above

Amid all the Masterpiece Ironhide news, we find a new announcement from Imaginarium Art teasing what we can only assume is a Generation 1 Ironhide cartoon edition statue. Like the other Imaginarium Art editions, this is sure to be totally awesome and totally expensive. But we're ready and more than willing to want it. Read on for the full teaser, with no word on release or pricing at this time.
It's been a little while, but the TF @ The Moon team has once again released some lost studio recording audio from the G1 cartoon for everyone to enjoy. The latest samples come from The Ultimate Doom part 3, and the followup episode Countdown to Extinction. Of special note, Countdown to Extinction features a few Optimus Prime lines done by a fill-in in place of Peter Cullen, who sounds a lot like Chris Latta to us. These lines were obviously never meant for broadcast, and are another rare inside look at some of the technical side of the making of the old cartoon. Both videos are embedded below and are definitely worth a listen!
