    I was working on a trade on another board:
    He offered:
    Titanuim 2 pack: $60 (Prime/Mega)

    Primal/Megs pack=$60 (TRU BW Reissue)

    What he wanted:
    BW
    Optimus Prime/Megatron 2 pack MOSC (Bat/Crocodile)
    Tigatron MOSC OFFERS
    Rhinox MOSC OFFERS
    Blackarachnia MOSC OFFERS
    Dinobot MOSC (original) OFFERS

    Energon GRIMLOCK & SWOOP MISB
    Optimus Prime Alternator MISB
    RF-1 Prime of Justice MISB (Japenese)
    Machine Wars Megatron MOSC
    D-16 Megatron MISB OFFERS

    I was trying to work it out,, but he felt it was fair, and got extremely pissed. How can I show him that is very lopsided???

    I'll give it a shot, but try and get someone else to put out values as I might be a bit off on some things. I'll value the stuff he's getting first:

    BW
    Optimus Prime/Megatron 2 pack MOSC (Bat/Crocodile) $20
    Tigatron MOSC $40
    Rhinox MOSC $30
    Blackarachnia MOSC $50
    Dinobot MOSC (original) $40

    Energon GRIMLOCK & SWOOP MISB $30
    Optimus Prime Alternator MISB $20
    RF-1 Prime of Justice MISB (Japenese) $30
    Machine Wars Megatron MOSC $10
    D-16 Megatron MISB OFFERS $60

    Total: $330

    And now for what you'll be getting:

    Titanuim 2 pack: $40 (Prime/Mega)

    Primal/Megs pack $50 (TRU BW Reissue)

    Total: $90

    It's pretty heavily in his favour.

    tell him hell no(and thats being nice). which d16 megs-gun or beastwars 2? sounds like this guy was trying to swindle and was hoping on you not knowing how much your stuff was worth. the fact that you can get both of what he has for trade at tru still, and what you have for trade you can only get by secondary markets now(plus you have some nice somewhat hard to get BW's) shows you how lopsided the trade really is.

    I think one of your toys trumps both of what he has for trade easily.

    BW@ Megs...I told him he was trying to swindle me, I also told him that My TRU still had those....and they weren't that"rare". Then he just stayed on the fact that I did'nt agree with his prices (which I dropped after one message).

    P.S. I already told him to forget about it. When he became insulting, and rude, I walked. See another reason why this board RULES : ) I am working on many trades here, with absolutrly no problems :)

    I know it is stupid to get upset over someone you don't know on the internet....but when they just start acting rude, and attacking you, I just get defensive. I know he was trying to "pull one over" on me. I told him that, and even told him to take what was up fot trade on both sides, and NO ONE ANYWHERE would agree it was fair.

    ....You're right. That deal isn't fair. He's trying to rip you off. VERY badly.
    Tell him to fuck off and come back when he's willing to offer you a proper deal.
    Edit: Actually, don't communicate with him again at all; if he's already got pissed at you for spotting his amazingly pathetic deal I wouldn't trust him to follow through at all.

    He treatened to report me because I said he was acting like an ass toward me. I said go ahead. The general attitude of the messages speak in my favor. I also sent him the link to this thread, and said, he might "learn something"...lol

    There are a lot of fools that try this sort of thing all the time, good to hear he's got short thrift. Every time I have something rare/valuable on ebay I'm always besieged with stupid BIN offers despite stating I don't end auctions early.

    If the guy in question is reading this:

    :throw

    Oh trust me, I wouldn't trade unless he sent first, and I could verify the items before I sent....lol...Even then I might be wary :)

    If I were you I would report him to the mod of that forum and just never message him again. There is no point asking if he read this, so just cut all ties. Easier that way.

    QFMFingT! Yeah, stick to these boards and buying/selling with people here. That's what I have done and no regrets so far.
