    I put an add in the hospitle news letter(my mother works there) saying that Im lookin for some transformers. Today a ladie called, saying that she had a big Rubbermaid container full of TFs. She said that they were her sons, who is 23. From the info that I gathered, they are from Headmaster-possibly G2 era. Im just wondering, pending on what I see, what I should offer her for them. She said that she had some GI Joes, He Man, and Thundercats around somewhere too. Any advice before tonight (thats when Im going to look at em) would be appriciated. :) 
    Thanks

    I'd say, depending on the size of box and condition, $30-50 would be more than reasonable. Don't write any off if they're broken, you can always get a couple of junk ones and combine the parts to get one good one.

    Ask her how much she would take for it. That way you can't offer her too little or too much. :D
