    Hey guys,


    Need some help with a price check. Going to end up selling off most of my collection so I can pay for my brother to go to Botcon, and need help to find out info for sales prices.

    I have these Alternators loose and complete:

    Swerve,
    Tracks,
    Meister,
    Windcharger,
    Smokescreen,
    Skids,
    Sideswipe,
    Hound,
    Mirage,
    Silverstreak,
    Riccochet,
    Grimlock,
    Sunstreaker,
    Prowl....

    and these still MISB:

    Shockwave,
    Dead End,
    Nemesis Prime,
    Rollbar,
    Battle Ravage (Version 1)
    Camshaft,
    Optimus Prime,
    Wheeljack



    Thanks guys for the help. I'm really trying to sell them as one big lot, and don't want to split it up, as I know a lot of them won't sell by themselves...

    Thanks again!

    Just a reminder that he's asking for price checks on these toys so please keep this thread relevant to the discussion as such. Please keep any buying, selling, and bartering to either PM's or Junkion.

    Off topic posts will be deleted. Thanks

    These are my guesses.

    Swerve, I sold this guy for $50 before I knew he was bringing $100 on ebay. I'd say $75 loose.
    Tracks, $20
    Meister, $25
    Windcharger, $15
    Smokescreen, $15
    Skids, $15
    Sideswipe, $15
    Hound, $25
    Mirage, $20
    Silverstreak, $20
    Riccochet, $12
    Grimlock, $25
    Sunstreaker, $15
    Prowl.... $15

    and these still MISB:

    Shockwave, $30
    Dead End, $25
    Nemesis Prime, $65
    Rollbar, $20
    Battle Ravage (Version 1) $20
    Camshaft, $50
    Optimus Prime, $25
    Wheeljack $30

    Well you may end up having to break them up in lots but i would be sure to put them in lots where you know you'll be able to sell them all, like putting smokescreen and sideswipe with swerve so that way you dont' get stuck with left overs. Here's what i've seen some of them go for recently on ebay and some of them here.


    Swerve, 125
    Tracks, 30
    Meister, 30
    Windcharger, 20
    Smokescreen, 15
    Skids, 15
    Sideswipe, 15
    Hound, 20
    Mirage, 25
    Silverstreak, 15
    Riccochet, 20
    Grimlock, 30
    Sunstreaker, 15
    Prowl....20

    and these still MISB:

    Shockwave 35
    Dead End, 35
    Nemesis Prime, 50
    Rollbar, 25
    Battle Ravage (Version 1) 30
    Camshaft, 35
    Optimus Prime, 30
    Wheeljack 30

    I recently sold my entire collection for around 20 a bot and could've gotten more if i sold them seperatly but i didn't want to run into the same problems. Good luck on selling them and i'm sure you could get around 500-600 for the entire lot if someone bought the entire thing.

    Thanks a lto guys, I think I'll toss them up as one huge lot on ebay, and hope for the best, so that I don't get stuck with the remanents... hoping to get 5-600 for them, and if that fails they will go to Junkion.

    Does that seem like the best course of action in your eyes guys?

    TmothyVernon, thank you for your interest, but as I stated in the posting, I was just looking for a price. I'm still on the fence if this will help me financially at this juncture. If I do sell it, I will post it in junkion.

    thanks Soundwave.ca for the help.

    If I remember correctly, Swerve and Camshaft are the rarest (except for Nemesis Prime, of course). You may want to try and list those 2 on their own and just put the rest in a lot. Might make a little more!

    I've found listing stuff as lots to be a double edged sword. Some people only want one or two items, which puts them off buying a lot since they end up with the rest. In the end, you don't want leftovers, but they won't want the extras!
    I'd definately list the harder to find ones individually, then maybe do the rest in two or three lots (perhaps four or five each), that way people will be more inclined to buy the whole lot even if they are only after one, because they don't have so many extras.

    Selling a Swerve could be beyond your wildest dreams over 100 bucks everyone will fight for it so sell it on Ebay and The Rest in the jUnkion exchange

    i think singles on ebay is your best bet, here everyone is offering you like 20bucks for mirage, he goes for around 30 opened on ebay, grimlock and wheeljack maybe even more, swerve is ALOT, more than likely you will sell them ALL if you set the auctions low
