    Just depends on what you consider a best offer. Even at $20 a piece it only adds up to $480.....and with some of them broken or scratched up that's alittle bit of a high BNP but who knows, you might get it.

    What I don't get is that you keep buying and then sell it off right after you get it?
    Eh? Maybe you should just save the trouble and not buy. I know this stupid hobby is addictive but if you're constantly getting into money issues, then don't buy. I don't know, just stop. If it's not making you happy, then just stop. I'm on the verve of stopping myself. :lol 
    Or if you just want to look at the toys for a sec and play with, then you need to find a local fans to suck off of. Go over and look at his toys to get your quick fix. :)  Too bad you don't live in Philly.

    If you did'nt purchase them with the intent to sell them at a higher price, then I would'nt call you a scalper, but the price is pretty steap, that all.

    I dont see any way you'll get as much as you're asking for them. I could understand if they had their boxes, manuals, and there were 24 of them with no duplicates... but loose with two primes, two smokescreens, two mirages and two sideswipes? and swerve, the most valuable one in there is broken? nah, I dont see it happening.

    $900? No way.

    $600, maybe, but $500 seems more appropriate.

    I wouldn't call you a scalper, no. But I would say that your auction's horrifically overpriced.

    $100.00 for shipping to Canada.....hmmm......Might actually cost you $35.00 to ship at the very most, Do you actually want to sell them or are you just showing them off to us ?

    (I considered putting in an offer until I saw the shipping cost)

    actually overseas-$80 ems(fixed it). canada- i can go thru ups to get a tracking number and it would be considerably less. also i wont rip anybody off on shipping. just revised the auction alittle more. put a pic of swerves leg problem in there.

    also if i went ems to canada it would cost $51.

    Thanks for the input guys.
