    Found a local listing for a Transformers lot on craigslist. I'm not really sure of the price/value and was wondering if you guys could assist. Seller says no instructions, some accessories/weapons but not sure if all and probably 80% complete (meaning 20% broken or missing something) Here's the pics.

    What would you guys pay for this lot? Thanks :)

    The only things that really stick out from that lot for me are the Classics Sunstreaker and Energon Sharkticon. Everything is pretty common and recent, but if you don't got em, make an offer you're comfortable with. Just ask "what do I want to pay per figure" and multiply by the number of figures.

    That depends! How much does this cost? And do you really want it?

    Guy is asking $265. To be honest I don't know if I really want it, was just browsing through Craigslist and found it. I can't even identify half of these as I haven't collected some of these lines before. Just wanted to see if there was some hidden gems in there to make it worth my while.

    265 is to much, I think, and especially if you don't really want it.

    yeah if you absolutely wanted it I would probably send the seller a message with something like "I will give you an open ended offer of $60 and if you don't have any buyers let me know and I will take them at that price"

    yeah, that's what I was thinking guys. thanks for confirming it for me. Like I said, I just wanted to make sure there wasn't some ultra-rare dude sitting in there waiting to get scooped up.

    there's 3 "ultra" class guys in there so if they are complete it might add a few bucks. plus those previously mentioned and the 2 deluxe bendy primes and the animated lugnut and blitzwing are worth a few bucks, but if they are broke missing pieces they are essentially worthless so it's a gamble

    $265 would be pretty fair if these were minty and complete.

    That said, they're nowhere near complete, and newer toys are parts hunting headaches/impossibilities like you wouldn't believe (just not much of a market for it yet). $150 is the absolute most anyone should pay for that due to the amount of missing parts, and that's only because of what some of those toys are. Personally I'd offer $100 or so if I wanted most of that stuff - if you don't want most of it then walk away :)

    Ask him to send you pictures of all the accessories and parts included. I think it's bit much though.

    I would offer the guy 75.00 bucks. 265 sounds higher than Chong. But I'm not into most of those figures.

    I'd take the Bendy and Nemmy Armada Primes for $25. That's it.

    And that's assuming he has the Mini-Cons and the smokestacks for them. Which I doubt.

    This seller's taking us for idiots. That lot even complete ain't worth 200 WTF. Not a single figure in there that's desirable. If I were you I'd offer between 50 - 75, take it or leave it. Honestly though if he were giving them away for free I still wouldn't want them cause there junk to me.

    lol that's funny. You should see the original pics he had listed on his craigslist ad. They were all just dumped in a box. Couldn't see anything. I emailed him and told him there's no way anyone is buying this when they can't see any figs and he doesn't list any specific details. He took those pics and emailed it to me.

    I wish him luck, but judging by the response here he won't get his asking price. You never know though :) 

    Edit. Here's the original pics:

    lol yeah. I was hoping once he sent me the new pics, all types of awesomeness would appear. It didn't really. But it gives me hope more people in my area do the same and I get lucky one day :)

    Agree with all other assessments which have these OUT OF BOX and NOT MINT figures at $265 for the lot. Bring that price below $150.... then we might be in business.
