    Sorry if it's in the wrong category…

    Hi everyone,

    It is with a heavy heart that I announce you the possibility that I might have to sell off my TF collection in case things turn really sour for me in the upcoming weeks. Some of you may already know about my situation with my gf… (ex now, I finally did it!) I won't get into that in here.

    Anyway, I submit a price list of everything I would have for sale in case I would be stuck in a situation where I would have no choice but to get rid of my toy collections, though I hope it would not come to that. But we never know…

    So just let me know if my prices are reasonable, or not.

    AND PLEASE!!! DON'T PM ME WITH OFFERS! These are not FOR SALE! Not for now, at least.

    The Toyark would be the best place for this. I'll flag it up for a move.

    I'd say some of your prices are a little high. For example, with the Classics, for what you are asking for a loose, complete toy, someone could buy a sealed one at retail. For current toys, if you're selling, you want to pitch your prices at less than retail ideally.

    You should take a look at the prices on ebay. That'll give you a good idea what your prices should be. Several of your Alternators prices are too high. Shockblast, smokescreen, grimlock and silverstreak were pretty common (especially silverstreak and smokescreen). Same goes for Cybertron. On ebay there is a flood of MISB/MOSC Cybertron figures that are going for around retail value for the most part.

    I think that all of the ones that I want to buy are too much. :p 

    But that being said, as they are all loose some of the newer figures that are still available are a little high seeing as the buyer will have to pay S/H.

    There still are a few that I would pick up though, but I would rather see you not having to sell the collection, so good luck!

    Ebay:
    If shipping is included with those items, then yes I think that is more than fine.
