    Put it up on ebay for bids?

    I guess the answer is how ever much someone will pay.

    I daresay the only people who'll bite are the people in the Radicons section, who might need junkers for customizing parts.

    He's fine with the exception of that metal rivet on his right shoulder panel. The panel is rotating on that rivet, and it shouldn't be.

    (I'm holding him together because i took out the screws and didn't want to put them back in)

    I just took to picture to show he's not destroyed. And see the metal rivet-head under the wheel; it's spinning on that.

    I got it from Automation Toys. But it's not there fault the toy was defective. I sent them an email this morning asking them if i can return it somehow to someone.

    But I'm looking into all my options right now. Selling, Returns, Fixing....

    In this threads case. Selling.

    I would see about a return/exchange first.

    But if you're really looking to sell it, post a thread in here: The Junk Pit - TFW2005 - The 2005 Boards

    The only problem is that people aren't going to want to pay a lot of money for a junker, especially if it's a 3rd party fig. There's no doubt that someone will want to buy it, but you'll be taking a major loss if you expect to move it. That's why I recommend trying to return/exchange it with the seller. If not, another resort is the DIY method, which I see you've been heavily looking into.

    I'd pay $15 for those weapons and wings.... maybe $1 more than what Wyvern would offer. :) 

    Might also need some other parts, but won't know till mine come in.
