    I seen a listing for "transformers lot". So I called him up, He sent me a few blurry pics of a couple TFs, and said "come look at em"

    So I did. I knew a buddy of mine was looking for a leader IH on the cheap, he had one so I figured Id go and see what I can score. He was a nice guy. The only things I didnt buy were his Battle ops Bees, and supreme devestator.

    Mind you, EVERYTHING is 100% complete. Mabye TF'd once. Got all the instructions for everything too.

    Highlights
    FE Starscream
    FE Arcee
    FE NYCC Arcee and BB with figures
    FE Bumblebee
    Wreck gar and junkheap (not pictured, I was messin with em)
    70's camaro bee
    Brand new MISB Powewrizer megatron
    universe springer complete
    WFC 3 pack
    Leader Ironhide
    Leader Starscream
    All Target and Walmart DOTM exclusives
    Premium Ironhide
    Longarm with mikela and damaged bee
    6 human alliance
    20+ voyagers
    Is that a titanium Starscream? I dunno...

    My buddy who knows more than me is gunna come by and help me identify some of it. There are 3 animated figures. A yellow ratchet, and a megatron and prime.

    Theres like 12 of the star wars X-overs...all complete. Lukes Xwing...thats pretty cool.

    I WILL be selling this stuff, so take a look and if you see anything you want, PM me.




    OK...So....I seen everything he had was complete and nice. I offered to buy it all.

    What would you guys have been comfortable with paying for this lot.

    I'd say between $100-200 minus a dollar for every bumblebee.

    I'd say about 100-125 would be a good worth.

    If all of that's complete and if you paid at or less than $300, you got a good deal. Even $400 isn't bad if you start to tally up the retail value. The posts estimating that stuff around $100 need to look at the figures, start doing some super quick math, and check how quick you get to $100.

    And doing more math - putting a value of $5 a figure on those, disregarding that some of those are worth significantly more, if that stuff is complete and you paid less than $500 I'd say that's fair.

    Basically that. You might have to give away some of the Bumblebees, but there's more than enough in there to make up for it.

    Damn, nice haul.

    I might be interested in the sideswipe's from the lot and that classics Wheeljack whenever you get around to selling if those are on the selling list.

    All the people saying $100 are insane. Seriously, I don't know how anyone could think that.

    I'd say basically any complete voyager is worth $10, and he said he got around 20 of them...so that's $200 right there. Some of those voyagers are definitely worth a lot more then $10, too; not to mention the leader class toys you got.

    I'd say 3-400 would be a great deal.

    Much of it is uninteresting to me but there are some nice pieces. I don't get why someone would sell brand new things though (Prime figures like Megatron/Prime, even the NYCC 2-pack from last year).

    yeah it's just ignorant to flatly say "$100 tops" because it's movie toys. I should start going into all the G1 threads and proclaim "you idiot, you paid $500 for a brick" (I wouldn't, because I like G1 and I'm not an ignorant prick). I just get a little annoyed that people always complain about the movie toys and bumblebees when I fucking gurantee you you wouldn't be seeing nearly as much new cool stuff come out if it wasn't for the popularity of the movies. Hell there would be no transformers Prime at all as they are bastardized versions of the movie characters

    But back to the OP's question- I'd say somewhere between $300-400 would have been a good deal. 6 HA's alone could be worth $200-250 if Barricade and Mudflap are there. 20 voyagers @roughly $10 each is another $200. some calssics, prime, leaders and hell, selling a bulk lot of movie deluxes should net you another $2-400 so $600-850 in resale value, anything between $3-400 should net you a decent profit if you piece it out and are patient (although I agree, not much you can do with all those BBs)
