    Im not sure if this is the right place to post this thread.. But is this a fair deal??

    $32 (including shipping) for
    animated bumblebee
    animated lockdown
    TFTM bonecrusher

    All loose but are supposed to be complete and in perfect condition, comes with boxes, instructions and everything.

    So what do you guys think? This a deal offered to me, so I would be the one buying. Fair or not??

    Considering you could still probably get the same toys sealed for about the same price, I wouldn't do it. That's my opinion though. TFA Bumblebee and Lockdown can still be found in stores or online retailers. Bonecrusher will be the hardest one to find online sealed.

    A MISB Bonecrusher will probably go for $15 - $20

    Roughly he's paying $10 a fig which is the RRP so it's a pretty good deal

    Actually considering taxes, that deal is probably cheaper than buying all three figures at retail

    That seems a little high to me. I see BB and Lockdown going for around $5 all the time. Bonecrusher was a super shelfwarmer until about 6 months back, and can probably be found pretty cheap loose. Unless you live on like Mars and the shipping is about 15 bucks, I'd say shop around some more.

    You're basically paying retail, minus tax. That's a good deal any way you look at it.

    Well, I dunno, unsealed, I would only want to pay 7$ for each TF.

    Can you make a counter offer? Althuogh I'm not taking into account shipping and whatever. So, really, do you feel comfortable paying that much?

    doesn't sound too bad of a deal but you might try talking him down a bit

    It's not outstanding, but it's a reasonable deal. I don't think either of you is really coming out ahead of the other. Make of that what you will.

    I think we're pretty much all in agreement that it's a fair deal. I'm not sure what isn't reassuring about that.

    My cynical nature makes me think he was hoping for "OMFG!!! That's such a fucking sweet deal, you're almost robbing the seller! We're all so jealous!"

    Not exactly... I got a couple of people saying that it isnt good, a couple saying that it is, but most were just kind of 'meh' answers about it. Which is how I felt from the begging on things, so I tried something different. Its that simple, wasnt looking for OMGs or ROTFLing of any kind on it.

    Sorry, but re-reading this thread, the reaction is overwhelmingly that it's a good deal. I see two people saying they could buy the items cheaper (but not where :rolleyes: ) and one guy saying you should maybe haggle a little against everyone else saying it's a good deal. That's pretty damn reassuring to me.
