Now, I realize this is somewhat subjective, but what are your thoughts on the trade values of all the 25th figures? If, for instance, I had a 25th Resolute BAT, should I trade him for a 25th Major Bludd?, or if I had a 25th Clear Wraith Variant, should I trade him for a 25th Viper?
Obviously whether or not they are MOC or loose has something to do with it as well, but I guess it depends on whether or not you open these things up or keep them on the card, so that would factor into you ranking them also.
Again, I know that its subjective, but I'm looking for a concensus more than anything.
What is considered the highest value 25th figure?
What is considered the lowest value 25th figure?
Just wondering what the other tankers thoughts were on this.
I think it would be cool to rank them top to bottom.

All the trade value stuff in all the magazines and "priceguides" is utter bullshit. Here's what anything is worth: how bad does the guy you want to sell it to want it? If i had 40 resolute BATs and needed a major Bludd to complete my collection or just cause i wanted the damn thing then obviously it would be worth more, to me, that a single Resolute BAT. I hope to god no one ranksthe damn things from top to bottom cause then the aholes on ebay will try to rape everyone for the crap they stole and repacked.
Scuse me...I been drinkin.

I agree. It totally depends on what each person wants. Although there ARE some 25th figs that are at a premium (Con Hot Rod, Pimp Destro, wave 1 Flint, and different variants like Yellow Stalker, Snake Eyes Black Timber, Gun-Ho Tat, Shipwreck tat,) etc....
Just buy/trade what you want/need.

yeah its all about whats new and in demand, for example, eels are hot right now and so are resolute bats, so thats a very even trade. varients and exclusives are a different matter, obviously no one is going to trade a rowdy piper for a clear wraith. but as far as regular figs go i think anything is a even trade if both people who are making the trade are getting what they want. so its all how bad somebody wants or needs whatever figure it is there looking for. so i guess any trade is a even one if both people are getting what they want.

I say that a Snake Eyes/Black Timber, Gold SDCC Destro, and Yellow Stalker are all worth about the same as a Viper. I have Vipers, anyone wanna trade?

Loose, anywhere from $1-$15 depending on whether it's an army builder or not.
MOC, anywhere from $1-$911.01, depending on whether it's an AFA 10 Clear Wraith or not.
As far as I can tell, the highest value of any 25th figure is $911.01, based on the sale of said AFA 10 Clear Wraith. Unless you feel scalpers are the antichrist, in which case is worth the lesser of actual cost, or what Wal-Mart sells it for, not including sales tax, and they should ship it to you for free and reimburse you for the time it took you to ask for it.
The lowest valued 25th figure is the Comic Pack v1 Duke, which is worth less than the cheese on your sack.
PS: I almost forgot, yes, you should trade me the clear wraith for a viper. PM me

OK....Like I said, I 100% get that its subjective, meaning that its particular to any given person. I get that. But thats not was I was asking.
What I am asking is that if given the choice of A over B, which would YOU choose. Take all the other variables out, how many figs you have of this, how many you have of that, etc. I mean, I play in a fantasy football league and bounce trade proposals/ideas off of other guys in various forums and they give their opinion. If I told them I was trading Adrian Peterson for Marvin Harrison, they'd tell me I was retarded, wouldn't matter who was else was on my team. Know what I mean? Didn't mean to strike a nerve.... lol. Maybe you should have another......? I'm a Long Island Ice Tea man myself. ;-)
For instance, a lot of people seem to value eels. Now, maybe everyone doesn't feel the same way about that, but on the whole, most people seem as though they would take an eel over, lets say, 2 run of the mill Dukes. Know what I mean?
Not to get off the subject, but while we're at it:
As for the stealers/repackers/weirdo motherf#ckers, I haven't seen any of that where I live, and I live in a pretty populous area AND I get around to a lot of different stores within an hour and a half of here with my work, so.... I don't know what to think about that. For what its worth, my opinion is, on the whole, this really doesn't happen all that often, relatively speaking. If it did, they would have the things caged up like all the video games are and they would be selling on sites such as ebay for a much higher premium and it would be rampant, no? I think this is relatively isolated behavior and an absolute waste of time discussing it.

Most Cobra Commanders are worthless. We;ve gotten too many of them in too many colors.
Breakers, Rock and Rolls, Hawks, and Flashs as well. I see them merely as cheap fodder.
Army builders are worth the most.
