    I'm working out a deal with a friend to trade a lot of figures I have for these figures he's gonna buy to give me.

    Figs I'm trading:
    Armada Prime with Trailer
    Energon Prime with Trailer and combiner limbs
    Energon Megatron
    Energon Demolishor
    Armada Cyclonus
    Armada Demolishor
    Armada Galvatron
    Armada Jetfire
    Cybertron Clocker
    Armada Wheeljack
    Allspark Skyblast
    Armada Hot Shot
    Car Robots God Magnus

    Figs he's going to get me:

    Tit soundwave
    Tit Scourge
    Energon Bruticus
    Henkei Thundercracker
    Energon Omega Supreme
    Universe Razorclaw
    Energon Tidal Wave
    BM Tankor
    BM Thrust


    Is this a good deal or should I not trade all these figs to him and sale them or trade them in the Junkion Exchange or what?



    Thanks for reading.


    Edit I also forgot I have 3 zoids I was gonna him. Berserk Fury, Shadow Fox and Liger 0 with his Schneider Armor.

    I would keep what you have. But see if he will still trade Titalwave for 1 of your figures, because he is just awsome.

    anyone else feel the same way?

    I'm thinking of just trading a few to him to get the figs he already has. The rest I might sale or trade on here.

    I'd say you'd be giving more than you would be getting. There's some nice pieces in your lot you'd be giving him, but the only ones who stand out in what you would get to me are Henkei Thundercracker and Energon Bruticus. And neither of those make up for the main part of that lot - things like your God Magnus and your Armada Prime + Jetfire combo would probably be fair trades, respectively.

    I'd say that's a pretty terrible deal.

    I'd say reorganize the trade.

    I may do that and just trade for the BM Tankor and Thrust, since it's the only figs he has on hand that I want and then sale the rest.

    Trust me, you'll want that Tidal Wave probably one of the best figures of the Armada line.

    Yeah but he doesn't have it on hand, he's planning to buy all these other figs and then trade them to me. I'd much rather have Micron Legend Shockwave though, he just looks better than the Hasbro version of Tidal Wave.

    That's a horrible deal. Why trade away God Magnus?

    IDK, trying to expand my Classics collection.

    I'm trying to get him down to liger zero and armada wheeljack for his 2 BM guys but he wants me to throw in energon op, though he is missing his trailer and his fire truck limb.

    This person sounds like a really bad trader IMO.
    He still needs to get the figures he needs to trade you?

    Trust me, don't trade for what he does not yet have. I learned that way back.

    If he doesn't even have most of the toys in his list, he might as well buy some of the stuff on your list...in that case you can name your price on figure by figure basis.

    I'm also pretty certain there'll be plenty of Henkei TC when he's out.

    I wouldn't sell Arm Jetfire and God Magnus, though, they are cool on their own as well :D
