    okay, so i've got just about every single dinosaur mold ever released, including the bazillion repaints they've done...and all the japanese versions too...but i'm thinking of thinning it out a little...are the armada dinobots worth anything? what about any other of those molds? except the japanese, those are the only ones that i'm definately keeping....

    edit: i'm gonna compile a list of every dinoformer i have....excluding transmetals....

    BM Dinobots fetch almost nothing, except sometimes Rapticon for some odd reason. Because of the weapon peg remold making it superior to Dinobot II? The cool colors?

    The Wal-Mart two-pack Armada Dinobots are still somewhat valuable. You can still net $40 or $50 for the six.

    The original BW dinosaur molds vary. I imagine Grimlock is valuable for having GPS, the character, being a harder to find repaint and for his appearance in the comics now - any version of the character Dinobot is otherwise not a high seller. The original Terrorsaur is quite popular, as is Fractyl for obvious reasons. Respective TM and TM2 versions aren't too expensive. I'm sure there's still some demand for BW2 Thrustol. BW Neo Bazooka and Sling have had a recent upwelling of demand, but the deluxe molds are worthless except Killer Punch.

    I think I covered them in a nutshell.

    You've duplicated the list of Swoops and Terrorsaurs... unless you have two of each.

    Forgot about the Universe repaints, but they follow the same pattern as most of the BM Dinobots - worth jack and shit.

    LOL, noticed something else. Unless you're grouping them as Transmetals for some odd reason, you're missing two - Beast Machines Skydive, and his Universe recolor.

    i dont count energon grimlock and swoop either, just going beast era figures...otherwise i'd have to add in another 10 figures or so....and i think i'm gonna end up selling E grim and swoop anyways...
