    Hello all, this is my 1st post & was hoping to get some info about a couple G1 transformers. I have pics from a guy that is willing to sell me his childhood TF's. I'm wanting to know what these might be worth & what kind of offer to make for them. I have "NO" intentions on selling, if I do aquire them. They will be added to my MOC/MIB Gi Joes & collect dust for the forseeable future. Yo joe.com recomended this sight, so here I am. Like most of you I enjoyed the greatest era of playing with toy's. Gotta love the 80's...........

    Thanks for your time

    I don't think he knows for sure, but this is the list of possible trades I sent him. I figure the $200 mark should be close to reasonable.

    Here is a list of possible trades I have to offer.............

    4 15x6 stock 10 spoke wheels off the MJ
    4 15x8 GM rally wheels (6 lug)
    4 15x8 Blk steel wheels TJ/MJ/XJ (rims are mounted on the 35" SSR's seen in Mj project thread after January)
    Tinted TJ soft top windows
    3" Rough Country lift add a leaf rear XJ/MJ
    97 4.0 intake manifold
    Warn M6000 winch + $50.00(silenoids are bad in control box) same winch that pulled you out in Preston Co.
    Clothes Washer
    Clothes Dryer

    I think $200 would be pretty good. Some of them look as though they may be missing parts (looking at Wheeljack mainly) but the Shockwave is beautiful. Mixmaster, the cement mixer, didn't come boxed - he came on a card. I think that should be his gun inside Shrapnel's box. It's the same gun that the combiner, Devastator, uses.

    if in good shape, shockwave itself is easily $150 or more
    If wheeljack is complete, that's an $100 toy too.
    Soundwave/bussaw is usually between $60-$80 mib.
    Rest is probably around$20-$30.

    go to this site to study up on the figures to see how complete they are (you want to look under "Generation 1"). It looks like Soundwave & Buzzsaw (the tape) might be missing parts but they could be in the box. Also you want to examine the condition of Shockwave's rubber hose that protects the wiring. If it is cracked then you can ask for less.
