    My wife and I are now expecting our second child and that means we’re going to need a bigger place to raise our family. Unfortunately I’m a little short on money and I’m left with no choice but to sell off my Optimus Prime collection. The ONLY items that AREN'T for sale are my MISB G1 US Optimus Prime, any and all signed items by Peter Cullen and/or Gary Chalk, convention items, and my Blue G2 Hero Optimus Prime (yes, I FINALLY got one). Other than the aforementioned items, everything else is up for grabs! I am ONLY accepting offers (for now at least) from everyone and am willing to do “layaway” so long as whatever you’re buying is paid off in three months time. Before making an offer I ask that you please take into consideration the rarity, condition, and care that everything I own has received. Be realistic and honest with yourself and I will be sure to do the same right back. If I get a higher offer for an item you’re interested in I will let you know that you’ve been “out-bid”. I will not reveal names or amounts as confidentiality is something I value and respect. If I reject your offer or feel that it’s a bit low please don’t take it personally.

    This sale is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Items that get sold will be marked as such AT MY SITE (check it out to view my entire inventory). If "SOLD" does not appear underneath the picture the item is still available.

    Email me with your inquiries and offers to ElvinPena@GMAIL.com. PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL ME AT MY HOTMAIL ADDRESS! PLEASE DO NOT PM ME.

    Many thanks in advance for your support and help. Coming to this decision was not easy at all, but when it comes to my family they will always come first.

    Congratulations on the coming of your second bundle of joy! :thumbs2: 
    Sad to see probably the best Prime/Convoy collection being broken up after all this time, but family comes first.
    Might have to email you on a couple of items you have and hope I can grab something.
    Good luck and congratulations again! :)

    Yeah, don't pity the guy. He's selling an amazing collection...


    But he's having a second child. This is hardly anything but a joyous occasion. Drinks all around.

    Still, sorry to see you have to sell the collection but it can't possibly give you as much joy as the new addition to the Pena family. Congrats Elvin.

    Congrats on the little one, and I'm sorry to see you part with your plastic children. I'm sure that it's painful. I SO wish I could pick up some of those, but I'm poor.

    wow, of all the people to be selling their collections. I got started collecting tfs again by getting as many of the different primes as I could, and always admired your collection. I have nothing but the utmost respect for you for doing this, elvin. I can only imagine how hard of a decision this was, I wish I had the money, because then I'd buy them all and then sell them back to you at a later date. best of luck!

    Well buddy, you have no idea how happy me and my family are for you bro,
    many many many many congratulations once again!

    On the flip-side I'm sorry you have to let the bulk of your stuff go. I see a number of pieces have already sold, so congrats on that. A good start to a less-than-ideal situation I guess....I'm sure they've gone to good homes.

    Best of luck my friend, and don't be a stranger!

    Ras

    P.S. How have you decided to display the G2 Prime goodness BTW?

    Sorry to hear that you're selling everything but at the same time congratulations on yet another Pena!

    P.S. DRAT! Someone already snapped up the Lucky Draw Masterpiece Convoy. :( 

    If the person who bought it backs out, I'll be all over that like stink on a monkey!
