    I just wanted to get some opinions on a trade I just recently made. This afternoon I traded an Encore Jazz, Universe Dragstrip, Animated Prime and G1 Motormaster(fig only) for a complete Omega Prime, RID Megatron(no weapons), RID Scourge(no trailer), and Animated Prowl. I was starting to second guess myself, so I thought I'd get some opinions.

    I like the group that you traded away over the group you received. But that's not saying you were hosed.

    If you and the other party are happy with the trade, then it's a good one regardless of the figures included in the deal. Everyone has varying opinions on different toys, so a good deal for one person may not seem like one to another.

    I would never trade complete figures for incomplete figures. So I say you hosed yourself since you knew what you were getting into.

    A complete omega prime? as in RiD Optimus and Magnus? I think the trade was worth it just for those guys! And if the tyres are still in one piece, then all the better!

    Edit: Wait, which way did this trade go? You recieved omega prime or let it go?

    I would say about even. assuming everything is loose, you traded away $80 worth of tfs and received $80 worth.

    btw, does it even matter? You know what you are getting into so I assume you like the trade in the first place, plus the fact it has already happened.

    I liked the trade, but was coming down with a case of traders remorse, so I was getting opinions.

    yeah sounds pretty good. the ONLY thing that you will be upset about later is the fact that you don't have the Scourge trailer. The reason I say that is because once the new Generations G2 Prime gets a black repaint, you gonna wish you had the trailer to pair the 2 up.

    I'd say you got a good trade. Although I would have rather gotten the Scourge complete, I still think you made out well with the Prime.

    Sounds like a good trade to me, though I would never trade away a Universe Drag Strip

    I know how you feel as I sometimes get sellers remorse. But in the end it was worth it.
