    Hi All, I'm looking to sell my Transformers Collection but have no idea what it's worth, I don't even have a ballpark figure. Should I put them on ebay auctions? Hoping someone can give me a rough estimate so I can get a fair idea of how much they're worth.

    They're all MIB, half of the encores are MISB.

    Nice collection.

    The TFC figures atm on ebay sell for 100+ misb. So being MIB I'd say they be around 85ish on an average. Using that guesstimate multiply it by the 22 you have and you would expect a total of around 1800. Keep in mind this is a very rough total and when you think about it, it 'seems' reasonable for an increasingly rare set.

    The encore line is much cheaper than yr TFC set as a whole. The only ones that are close or above 100USD are: Bruticus, Devastator, Cassette set 1, Omega Supreme, Soundwave, Megatron, Metroplex and Optimus. The rest you could get for a couple hundred. That being said you would guesstimate it at around 1200 for your encore line.

    The others lot you could get an easy 300 - 500 for.

    I would say ballpark figure for this entire lot be between 2,500 to 3,500. Anything less and you might feel swindled, anything more is a bonus. Hope that helps :)

    Ebay:
    I'm sure a couple people here would buy those from you. Let us know what you decide to do with them. eBay, JE, wherever. :D

    Well, I actually bought a lot of these recently, so I can tell you what I paid. My recommendation is to list them individually, as selling this as a lot will lose you money in the long run.

    Also, these are the prices I found on this stuff. The eBay prices you see are very unreasonable and a lot of times they sit there, so I don't know how motivated of a seller you are. If you are not motivated at all, you can probably let them sit as long as you want and make more.

    I would also list it here first, rather then on eBay where you can get screwed by buyers.
