    ALTERNATORS! Mirage and Rodimus! MISB!

    ATTENTION!

    Do you currently own a loose Alternator Mirage or loose SDCC Alternator Rodimus?

    If so, have you had that feeling that "I really should have kept him in the box!"

    Well, here's your chance!

    I am currently looking to trade my MISB Alternator Mirage and MISB Alternator Rodimus, for a loose Mirage + $25 and Rodimus + $25!



    If you have either of these, throw me a PM!

    You don't want to save yourself the $50 and just open them...?

    $25 for the BOX seems a bit steep... Maybe I'm reading it wrong

    Why don't you just open them?

    Seems a bit ludicrous to me.

    Oops, I should change that. Yes they are MISB.

    I don't want to open them up, seems like a waste, so I figure if someone out there has one that they have opened and now regret it (i do that sometimes.. open up a fig then a few weeks later think "I should have just kept it in the darn box") then maybe they would like to swap for a MISB one.

    Just feels like a waste for me to open them.

    I think he is sacrificing his MISB versions and wanting someone to give him a loose one AND pay an extra 25 bucks just to have back the "Sealed" experience.

    Wouldn't the shipping costs and the time spent on this endeavour negate any of the $25 profits; unless it was a local pick-up? Sorry, just curious...

    Time spent?

    And no, shipping won't be expensive.

    There are multiple scenarios for this offer.

    Someone could have bought a loose mirage or rodimus for $40 or something, now they want a a MISB. THrow in $25 and you get it, approx same price as going on ebay. Then of course shipping, which we both pay. There are others.

    On my side, opening them would negate their value and me losing *potential* money value on them, which is worse then me trading them away for a loose + 25. The 25 is to help cover the loss, which of course i'd use part of that to ship with.

    So I guess to make it easier to understand, if I didn't ask for $25, I'd be saying "give me your loose rodimus and I"ll give you my MISB rodimus". ie "give me $40 (appx) and I'll give you $80!"

    It's pretty simple, but if you have no interest in the offer it's quite ok, it's not for everybody, depending on how much you initially spent on your figure.
