    If I didn't have nearly all of those, I would have PM'd you with offers already!

    I would say use this as a sales thread to see how you get on before going to eBay. If you have any prices in mind, it might be an idea to put them up alongside each item and just invite PMs for anyone interested in making a purchase.

    Sadly I see all too few UK sellers here on TFW, so I wish you all the luck my man.

    ...and welcome to the boards! :D

    Welcome to the boards, always good to see UK sellers actually mention the location in the thread title.

    My advice, if you're looking to sell them list prices. If you are looking to trade them include a wants list. Pictures never hurt but it can be time consuming. All the best.

    Thanks guys!

    Would you recommend trying to sell as a job lot or individually??

    Ebay:
    Whilst i've never sold anything online, i do have to say it'd be better to sell here as then you don't have to pay eBay a listing fee and a 10% of the sale price on top of that

    Individually with the option of small discounts for bulk buys (although combining postage of often just as good).

    Always sell individually when possible.

    Movie Voyagers don't seem to do well, but deluxes do. Pricewise I'd estimate:

    TF 2007 Movie:
    Voyager Starscream BNIB - £14
    Voyager Deep Space Starscream BNIB - £10
    Voyager Blackout BNIN - £15
    Deluxe Barricade BNIB - £8
    Voyager Optimus Prime & Deluxe Bumblebee 2-pack BNIB - £20
    Unleashed Bumblebee BNIB - £5

    TF Universe:
    Optimus Prime vs Megatron 2-pack BNIB - £15
    Deluxe Starscream BNIB - £14

    TF Animated:
    Deluxe Soundwave BNIB - £7
