    My Grandma's Transformers (pics)

    Hi all, I am new to this board. My grandma bought these toys when I was a kid and never let me play with them :)  I guess somewhere in the last couple of decades, she put some of the stickers on the toys. I looked some of these up... I guess they are Pre-rub? Any way she wants me to sell them. Can someone here lend their knowledge and let me know possible value and the best way to sell them? These ones were in her closet and there are more in the storage. ( I also did not photograph everything in the closet, there are a few more not pictured)

    Any help would be great.

    -Matt

    Ebay:
    Hey Matt, welcome to TFW! Anyways, you can list the toys here on the Junkion Exchange or on eBay. Do some searching around on all those toys to find a general price range, and I can guarantee you, you can sell those toys for a pretty penny. Have fun on the forums!

    Those toys are junk, but I will happily dispose of them for you. I'll even split shipping with you!

    Thats pretty awesome! Your Grandma was a MIB collector! Probably saw that they would be valuable one day.

    I would not sell them...:) 

    Edit: Just saw that she applied the stickers. So it seems she genuinely had interests in these great toys.

    Thanks fellas, I'll try to post some more pics when I look through her storage. She also has Shockwave, Bluestreak and Galvatron in her closet. I don't know what is in storage.

    Yeah, ebay is the best rout for you in my opinion. It's safe and even if you're not sure of the going rate, you can just start the price low and let the bids do the work.

    Good luck and welcome to the boards.

    You will easily get 300-400 each for those my friend. The only problem with Ebay now days is they will get a nice fee for the higher they sell for. To get more bang for your buck, or ours more less, would be to list them here first. Just do your price research on Ebay to get a ball park figure.
