Cocaine is one hell of a drug.
You'd certainly need to be on it to spend that much.

I owe less than that on my car loan...
I could think of better $6000 toys to buy.

Not if they were made from solid gold and delivered by a fire-breathing unicorn.

An absolutely CRAZY price, especially as two of those packs saw release here in the UK. They were on sale for a pittance in most toy stores.
The others... All depends on how much you like Robot Heroes. And how that Lottery win is working out for you.

Nice set of figures. Except that there were a few eBay auctions for the unreleased sets (and more than a few for the released and carded two packs with Tigatron and Predaking). And (admittedly loose) they seldom went above the low $100s even with regard to Laserbeak and Prowl.
Even now, you can get a Tigatron and Inferno, or Ricochet and Predaking set MIB easily for under $100. So $1500 for two robot heroes on a card? Pass. $600 would be a lot more realistic.

The only set I'd consider paying more than retail for would be the Super OP/Megatron from RID. And by that I mean maybe $20. Seller is loco in the coco.
Not if they were made from solid gold and delivered by a naked Lindsey Lohan doing a backwards crab walk.
Family Guy'd for your convenience.

dumb. Dony transform or nothing. BS auction. There are better holy grails than that. $6000 would get you some pretty nice rare items like Grand Maximus, Metrotitan, Guard City, Battle Gaea, and the list goes on. Damn you could snatch up some lucky draw items. This auction is pure fail.

Wow,i'd have a hard time justfying paying retail prices for these.
I'd never pay $6,000 for them.
I honestly don't care how rare these robot heroes are. I don't buy TF toys based off secodary market profits. When I buy a newer or older TF toy,I have to trully love the design/character & it must be a well made toy. it must also meet my desired TF toy buying preferences.
I wasn't a fan of the robot heroes because they weren't that poseable. they reminded me of the 2 inch smurfs PVC figures. If i was into something like this,then I'd get the Takara SFC PVC's.

i wasnt a fan of these but i would've bought the sharkticon. Sad thing about this is we all know some moron out there is going to buy it and think they have something special when they dont. Yeah its a collectors market but they are still just cheap plastic on cardboard that dont do anything. For 6 grand you can buy a car, a few old cars, a kick ass entertainment system, pay your bills, buy a bunch of steaks, get a tank of gas, higher a high price escort, put it in the bank or stock market and make more money, so many better thing to do with 6 grand then spend it on lumps of plastic. Hell if you really want to wast 6 grand on figures go and buy a bunch of lots off ebay or just go to the store every week and buy crap their, 6 grand will last you a while. People really need to pull their head out of their ass every now and then.

Wow, these replies are interesting. Surely the 6-set isn't worth 6 grand -it's maybe worth 600-1000 at most- but those are unreleased figures, and the Deathsaurus pack surely looks good!

If I had the $ at the time, I would've rocked the 5 G's for Shining Unicron
