Hi and welcome all you Transformer fans. There is a returning trend on the horizon..As most of you know most of the good Transformers have been reissued or have been made into knock offs by other companies. Well the prices of All of them are on the rise again and they are jumping by leaps and bounds. I have seen the G1's climb higher and higher in the last few months, this is mainly due to the reissues and Knock offs. There many good transformers starting to pop up as well as some really good fakes and Custom too. Most of the the ones starting to pop up on ebay are selling for massive cash no mater what condition they are in. And then there is the first runs (Not G1) the first runs are called Diaclone and are the most rare. If you have a chance to get one at a good price JUMP on it! Those are going to be worth the most..But watch out for fakes.. Now some of you are asking yourself Surfer how can you spot a fake and how do you know if all the parts are there and what is the Transformers name? Well this has been a closely guarded secret for years now but I feel like sharing with you my fellow Transformers fan. There several sites up that cover Transformers G1 and G2 but only one that covers it all. Transformers, Diaclone, G1 and G2 plus all current Transformers made. Now write this site down cause I will be removing it after 30 days. Soundwaves Oblivion: Transformer Toy Archive Here you will find everything you ever needed to know...

Use images and Youtube videos and cool fonts to help you accomplish your task. Now just sit back and let your auction run it's course.. Now as to a price guide...I can't possibly post all the prices . So if you can't find the price go to eBay and look up the transformer and see what one sold for and cut the price in half and there is your starting price or you can go lower on your starting price to get more bidders to fight for it. The more people who see your auction the more they will bid..So make it pop and stand above the rest. Just keep an eye out and you will be able to acquire the Transformers you need for your collection as well as make some cash in the process.
