    First of all, thanks to everybody that responded to the first thread when I asked if this was worth the money. The seller added a lot of toys to his initial offer. Tell me what you guys think now that I bought them. In my opinion, this was well worth $200. There were lots of G1 toys in pretty good shape and just a few that I would actually call broken. There also were some Gobots and a few others that I don't recognize. Unfortunately, the seller could not find ANY accessories or weapons but he said he will let me know if they turn up. I'll keep my fingers crossed. I bought it all from a guy on Craigslist and everything is in these pictures.

    Merry Christmas!

    sure is all of puzzler. since there're no accessories for those guys, that alone is worth at least $40.

    to the op, while you may not have any accessories, the condition of those figures makes it a steal. between the bone-white jetfire, the three dinobots in super condition, the wear-free mirage and lack of general wear on a lot of those puts you in great shape. now just to make it to a botcon or get in touch with megamus or someone else here who does lots of dealing in parts, and you'll be set.

    It was a good deal with the first pics you posted in your last thread. It most certainly has not magically turned into a bad deal.

    Nice haul.

    While there is some junk, like in DSC07482.JPG, the first 3 pics on the top row are worth it imo.

    Plus, ROADBUSTER!

    I think it was worth about $200 by the time I was done with the second picture. MAYBE the 3rd. Wowee.

    Yea, clearly you got well over $200 worth of stuff off the guy. Defintely worth fixing the few broken parts and finding the accessories. That Wheeljack looks sweet.

    Naah, not a very good deal really.

    However, in the spirit of Christmas I will relieve you of them for the same price you paid.
    Consider it my good deed of the day.

    The fact that you got both Wheeljack and Swoop for $200? C'mon now.. it's like getting all those other guys for free. You know very well you got a good deal. :) 

    Was this an eBay deal or an in-person deal? Whoever sold all of that for only $200 is an idiot. Best deal I've ever seen. You totally gained!
