Exceptionally rare. They were virtually impossible to find for a long time, much like Police Sunstreaker, but they've become more readily available recently, and I'm not sure why. Maybe it's the economy. People are losing jobs and selling off prized possessions?
Whatever the case may be, prices for ALL Diaclone items have dropped ridiculously over the past year. I think the non-TF ones have a chance of going up again, but with all the G1 reissues becoming readily available, people are becoming less interested in variations of G1 molds. Some of the "magic" is lost with increased availability. I wouldn't pay too much for one right now.
I'm willing to bet it may have come down to a single collector or business who had multiple copies of it and put them all up for sale at once. They'll get resold a couple of times by sellers trying to turn a quick profit and will ultimately settle with buyers who intend to keep them.
