    Loose Alternator Swerve w/unopened instructions for Alternator's Mirage and Wheeljack...... both unopened MIB?

    That's what I'm being offered, but I'm not sure. Lend me your take on it.

    Hmm. Take my advice with a grain of salt. I'm not a frequent buyer/seller/trader, and I can't speak for the values of everyone else.

    Depending on how much I want Alternator Swerve, I may be willing to part with 2 Alternators. However, I've seen that the Mirage/Rodimus mold, the Prowl mold, and the Wheeljack/Grimlock mold are all REALLY POPULAR. The Hound, Smokescreen, and Sideswipe mold seems less popular.

    Asking for two Alternators might be reasonable, but I wouldn't want to trade a Mirage AND Wheeljack, especially not MIB.

    I agree. Swerve may be the most expensive Alternator, but Mirage and Wheeljack are both within the top 5 in terms of price since both were hard to find. If the Mirage and Wheeljack are in excellent-but-opened condition, then that would be more reasonable.

    Depends where you live. Argos practically had to give Wheeljack away to get rid of him, whereas I don't think the UK ever saw a release of Mirage.

    Swerve is awesome, but personally I think that deal is not fair. But in the end, getting what you really want is what matters.
