    Yeah, I'd say no less than $1000 if those figures are all originals and in good condition.

    yeah, fuck 500 dollars.

    you'll get the most for them if you put them up individually on ebay or in the junkion exchange.

    you'll get double that offer, easily.

    Yeah, you should be able to pull in way more than a measly $500 for all of that.

    $500 dollars you say I wouldn't. Your collection is easily worth twice that. Think you have 60 transformers listed even if you sold them at 10 dollars a piece that would be six hundred dollars right there and several of them are worth far more than 10 dollars and we are talking us curency I believe. Anyways you would be crazy to sell your collection off for a measly $500 dollars. I would ask for at least $1000 dollars. But hey its your collection do as you wish.

    NO! Always divide the # of figs. by the total amt. offered to get a very rough estimate of what you're selling them for.

    No way dude. You could get way more selling them individually on ebay for sure.
