    HI all,

    I don't have any beast wars in my collection (save for original trex megs I got when I was like 15) but an acquaintance of mine came to me offering his BW collection from when he was younger for sale. He said most are in pretty good condition, with little to no flaking on the transmetals and all have accessories. So what would be a "fair" amount to offer him (he doesn't really know the value) so that he doesn't get ripped off and I don't end up overpaying. Also, are there any stand-outs in the collection (i.e. rarer or hard to find guys)?

    The list:

    Optimal Optimus
    Transmetal Optimus
    "Bat" Optimus
    Red Dragon Megatron
    Transmetal Depth Charge
    Transmetal Rampage
    Tigerhawk
    Cybershark
    Transmetal Cheetor
    Transmetal 2 Cheetor
    Dinobot
    Airazor x2
    Transmetal Airazor x2
    Transmetal Rattrap
    Transmetal Rhinox
    Blackarachnia (Black Widow)
    Transmetal Terrorsaur
    Quickstrike (fusors scorpion/cobra)
    Rockbuster
    Insecticon
    Terragator
    Transmetals 2 Prowl

    "all have accessories"? or they have all accessories?

    The "gem" in his collections aren't much but:

    Optimal Optimus
    Red Dragon Megatron
    Tigerhawk


    Are probably the ones that are worth anything. The others more or less has been their base price +/-10$.

    If you buy the lot and willing to split, I'd be down to buy a few.

    If that Transmetal Rattrap has the tail, isn't fucked up on the chrome, has red on the wheel faces & has red eyes in robot mode, I'd be wanting it. :) 

    (it's not that I care about the eye colour, but that's an easy way to tell it apart from the older releases)



    Rampage, Depthcharge, TM Optimus (the blue one), & Quickstrike can be fairly desirable too, and same with the Blackarachnia. I've already got the ones from there that I like, but in general they're cool. I like the Bat Optimus too, but he's not really that pricy.

    Hm, maybe I confused you with my statement. Your friend said they all have their accessories, does it mean that they all have ALL their accessories? For example,

    Optimal Optimus, 6 blast shields (4 sides, 2 main), 4 translucent missile, 1 gun, electrics work?

    Depthcharge: 6 disc projectiles, 2 yellow missiles, 1 shark launcher, 1 sword?

    Hope you understand and make sure he has everything =)

    I think Depthcharge came with 7 Discs (power pizzas).

    To buy that list, loose and complete as a lot, I would offer $170-$200 to a friend. I'd offer $150-170 to anyone else.

    Also for Depthcharge, the sword/tail is technically two pieces (one of which he can't really stand without), so keep that in mind.

    Best way to figure all of this out would be to look em up on the site's resource section & jot down all the stuff they came with. That way when you guys look at the figures, you won't have to assume anything.
