    As character merchandise, I judge action figures based on three main factors:
    • character likeness & accuracy of proportions
    • articulation/poseability
    • scale consistency
    Most G1 figures fail the first two criteria outright. The best that can be said about vintage Transformers is that they're usually consistent in scale to one another...

    ...but G1 Shockwave can't even make that claim. :redface2: 

    :eek: 

    Even for someone with your connections, it can't be easy to find buyers for such a large quantity of used figures...!

    Dude, this is so true. And it's doubly hard to sell them when people have to also cough up shipping from Iceland - so I take a lot of loss on that and where possible, try to sell the toys in lots of 4 or 5 to mitigate the loss.

    I'll tell you something, though, TR and LG sell so much faster than MP that it isn't even funny. I suspect this has to do with MP collectors insisting on having the packaging too, though, which I disposed of almost a year ago (apart from the cars).

    All the best

    Counter with Studio Series Thundercracker, who’s allegedly from DOTM. Maybe an uncredited extra?? C90C2EF8-67DC-47E1-AF29-7DD63A2B5950.jpeg
