    just go to ebay and look up alternators....they sell regardless of how you list them. the only ones that don't sell well are the really common ones (Ricochet, the orange jeep and skids, etc.)

    for the casual collector buying lots is, well expensive. I woulod try selling in individually here on the boards. Collectors helping collectors. Seeing as there is always going to be someone who needs something. then after a while place the remainders on ebay.... I myself need Wheeljack and Swindle (hint, hint).

    Better off selling them individully. If you sell them all as one lot they will most likely get picked up by a dealer...and who wants that happening to their collection? Plus you'll probablly make about 30% more selling them as singles.

    If you ever figure it out, be certain to tell Hasbro, as they have the same problem you do.

    I sold a few on the boards as individuals, but for the most part they sold in clumpst to the same two or three people. So, I'd say it doesn't really matter. They'll sell however you list them. And selling in a lot may be the only way to get rid of the overproduced guys like Smokescreen, Ricochet, Rollbar and Skids...

    If you want to sell them all at once shoot me a PM. I am trying to go back and get a boxed set to go with my loose set, and would really prefer to buy in a lot.

    Individuals would be the way to go. It's too pricy per item to have someone get three or four for one item.
