    Hi,
    I want to sell my Classics collection. Should I sell individually or as a lot?
    They are all MISB.
    How much cash will I lose if I sell as one lot? What do you think?

    Astrotrain
    Cliffjumper x2
    Devastator
    Grimlock
    Jetfire
    Mirage
    Optimus Prime
    Rodimus
    Skywarp/Ultra Magnus
    Starscream
    Ramjet

    Ebay:
    Go to ebay and search for your items under ”completed auctions”

    You should be able to gauge what they're selling for.

    Also, I would sell individually

    Always sell individually where classics are concerned.

    Absolutely sell individually and check eBay for worthwhile prices.
    Then sell them on the Junkion exchange here instead.

    I personally would expect a 25-30% discount when buying a lot such as that. You can easily create auction templates to use for individual auctions. That's what I do when ebay selling. Never lots, you lose too much money and you also limit your market of potential customers.

    I would at least sell one of those two Cliffjumpers individually, In particular, I would sell it to me ;)

    I am located in Montreal, Canada.
    I have never sold anything on Ebay.
    How do I go about listing Shipping fees.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Lets say that i would want to keep Starscream and Skywarp, is there a Thundercracker out there of the same mold? Is it the '07 Botcon?

    Yea, if you have the time, definately piece them out. With those, I would almost go in the Buy/Sell/Trade on here and cybertron.ca prior to ebay to save on some of the fees. As someone said, selling as a lot will net you less, but at the same time, will be less work. Time vs Money, but I think you will get significantly more selling seperatly.

    Damn, everytime I see a classics thread mentioning Magnus, I am reminded that I eventually need to track down a second one.

    Well if your thinking of keeping some, you may just want to keep them all. You don't want to sell them and realize later that you should have kept them. You may want to look at all the classics out there.

    Yeah...im not 100% sure. I think that I am only missing Megatron and Bumblebee from that line, right?
    I have two Cliffjumpers so I can sell the extra for sure.
    If I keep them I will eventually cave and open them up! :)
