    I just grabbed this lot with a bid that I thought would be less for than what it would go for...anybody identify anything decent in it?

    I notice UMag's armor parts, a g1 or g2 prime cab, and I think a g1 thundercracker without wings? Anything else? Are those power rangers in there?

    Thanks guys

    I'd say half of that lot is Power Rangers... Your best bet for decent figures is probably the Beast Wars Megs in there if it's in good shape and perhaps the Powermaster Prime trailer. The blue seeker without wings looks more like Dirge to me, too.

    G1 Powermaster Prime trailer in the lower left. Some type of Micromaster base on the left side? BW Megatron T-Rex? left center. BW Optimal Optimus on the right edge.

    I don't see much that I recognize as a holy crap awesome find, but then again, I don't recognize a lot ot the items in there (e.g. the Voltron-looking stuff in the upper left).

    If you don't mind my asking, how much did you plunk down for all this?

    EDIT: Omegus FTW. That has to be Dirge.

    EDIT2: OOOOOOhhhhh. Thanks for the larger pic. That black truck is G1 Trailbreaker in the lower left of the bottom pic. I thought I may have seen him in the top pic, but it wasn't quite large enough to be sure.

    I think The Powermaster Prime is actually there as well. if you look to the right of the trailer. Also I think thats Armada Starscream at the top right isnt it? Over half of the stuff is Power Rangers stuff.

    G1 trailbreaker, I'm suprised as he has his bedcover.

    magnus trailer...broken

    OPOP...looks good

    RID Sideburn....appears to be good

    Alt hound ...in pieces

    G1 Dirge?....body

    G1 prime cab

    BW Megs

    G2 Bomber...i can't remember the name but he came with a smaller jet. I have the BWII Starscream version.

    Armada Starscream.....can't tell of his condition due to his strange pose

    Prime Powermaster trailer

    and maybe three others but I can't tell


    nice score.

    Yeah, looks like its probably worth about $50, maybe more depending upon the value of the PR stuff, which I'm not familiar with.

    Pictures are too small for me - too much squinting. I do agree w/ others - good kitbashing fodder if nothing else.

    I almost bid on that lot myself. I couldn't tell if some of it is broken (like the Magnus trailer) or if it was a bunch of smaller shots put together with mismatches on the edges.

    Well, update this thread once you get em! :)

    For the Power Ranger figures, most of them look like secondary toys, smaller Megazord action figures that dont separate. There's a Mega Winger in there though, and almost a complete Rescue Megazord but it's missing Star Racer, the yellow figure of the group. If all 5 were there that would be a good score, too.

    Thanks for the power ranger info, of which i know nothing.
    I'll likely try and sell all the ranger stuff within my area (toronto, canada). Knowing the info you just told me I can now pitch it as a way for people with star racer to complete rescue megazord. Thanks.

    That may be a bit difficult, the Megazord was sold with all 5 components in the same box, it's easier to find someone selling just that figure instead of someone with just the one piece looking for the other four. Your better bet is to find someone on eBay who's only selling Star Racer to complete the Megazord and finish the set, then sell it together. This is the complete set so you can grade their condition and see how they should be transformed:

    Just to update, I received this lot yesterday, I was really happy with my bigger one some of you have seen, but not so much with this one. All the ones with 'potential' (bw megs, armada starscream, the other BW/BW-metals) are missing multiple essential pieces. Here's what was good out of the lot, which I suppose was still worth my $60 (Cdn), but barely.
    Obviously, 1983 thundercracker with landing gear but no wings, g1 Trailerbreaker (complete, SWEET), g2 optimus in good condition, optimal op, magnus armor parts, alternators hound (wasn't broken at all, pieces just detached), etc...

    I'll say again... That's not a Thundercracker you've got, the blue plastic is way too dark. That's a Dirge. It's too bad so much of it's broken or that would be a nice lot.
