    Hi all,

    I've been searching the board, and I can't seem to find a good spot to gauge prices for my collection (need to sell off my collection to pay for those unexpected expenses).

    Is there a specific resource I should look to? I've found Wizard inflates their prices, and I'd much rather start here than ebay.

    For instance, I have a X-9 Metals Jaguar, but it's out of the box (I still have the box). I have BW Tripredacus Agent still on the card, and in terrific condition. I also have the Fallen, but the hinges on the treads are loose - they've been like that since it's been out of the packaging.

    These are examples, but not all of what I need to sell off. I'd like to be fair about prices, but don't want to get taken.

    Thanks for the assist.

    Ebay:
    ebay works well. search under transformers for the item you are selling and make sure to the left you have "completed auctions" checked. this will give you a range of that item what it sold for and help determine a nice price to sell yours at.

    thats what i do. and for that ravage you could fetch 100-150 maybe. most start misb at 150 on ebay.

    good luck with your sale.

    ebay is good to see what people are paying, however because it's a bidding site, the prices aren't all that reliable because they fluxuate greatly, and often.

    I have long been a fan of "Lee's Toy Review". They seem to have a pretty solid guide, not too dissimilar from wizard in format.

    On second thought, I don't know if I would reccomend ebay, but the choice is yours.

    Thanks MP, I'll start there.
    Deceptigar - I'll try using eBay as a gauge of how well the item may sell (demand), and take pricing with a grain of salt.

    Thanks guys!
