You might pick up a gem or two, but worth checking to see which transcripts are available online before paying some of those prices for an individual parish.
Oo-er, they've got some.  I assumed it was just robo-generated cybernoise.
Some of these are reprints, a small number seem to be original publications. The “classic reprints” can be of mixed quality, depending on the original (I’ve seen a few complaints about the quality of these). Note that Archive.org has a few of these as well that can be downloaded for free.

Two points to make here -

Firstly, Parish Registers are in the Public Domain, you have the legal right to them, they do not belong to any individual, so you cannot sell them.

Secondly, photocopy of the originals are available from the Records Office, and often from the regional offices too, so there is no reason to resort to third party transcripts.
