    check ebay completed listings for all the figures, then take half the money off, and you'll be closer to what it's going to go for

    Ebay:
    gonna be tough as a lot. since alot of that stuff is sealed shipping would be nuts on this. someone with some cash or has none of these figures would jump on it.

    i have sold lots of figs before on ebay and did well but again they were all loose.

    Lots are nice since they are less work (for the most part) than listing figures individually. However, the figures will probably go for less in a big lot. More often than not, inidividual figures sell for more.

    I recently sold a few MOSC RiD figures, so I can give you some help there. I was able to sell the following at $12:

    Super Rally X-Brawn
    Hightower
    Heavy Load

    I had a harder time selling Super Blue Prowl for $12. I ended up settling for around $8.

    However, selling MOSC/new figures shouldn't make that big of difference. There are many collectors that prefer that. The problem is the market. There isn't a huge market for most of those RiD figures you listed. As for the others, I don't have as much experience selling BW/BM figures.

    thanks Tirade for the help. It's looking more and more like it wouldn't be worth the effort to sell them

    It could still be worth the effort for figures like RiD Prime and Ultra Magnus. There is a market for those two. I know that for sure. Plus I believe Bludgeon is another one that sells with some frequency over on eBay. The trains are also popular and easier to sell than the others. The same goes for Cryotek. I would also think about listing the 4 Build Team members (Heavy Load, Wedge, Grimlock and Hightower) in a lot together.

    Also another word of advice for the ones that you will have a harder time selling: try the Buy it Now/Best Offer approach for those. That way you can have them listed for 30 days for only 50 cents. The final value fees can be higher, but from my experience, the 7 day auctions usually go by without a bid. I had that happen with a few of my RiD figures.

    again, i appreciate the help and good advice. I think I'll hold on to em for now, there is a little bit of sentimental attachment anyway. I was thinking only about getting rid of em quickly, but it doesn't really seem to be a good option to list them all as a lot and to break them up would take to long.
    Guess the HK USP (9mm handgun) will be sold instead :(

    BBTS and TF Source pay pretty good prices for figures, especially sealed ones. Try contacting one of them with your list if you want to get rid of it in one big lot.

    Some of them are worth a decent amount. Ultra Magnus RiD is around 45$ (what I got it for), though I know people sell for cheaper. Optimus Prime is about 50$+.

    Rail Racer as a whole costs about 35-45$ right now.
    Build King as a whole cost about 30-40$ right now.

    (these are all in box prices)

    Autobot Brothers are about 10-12$ a piece.

    I also, like other who have replied here, suggest to sell them individually. No one wants to pay for a shipping like that, and a lot as complete as yours for RiD line means that person would have to not have had any RiD figures or they'd be picking redundant.

    I agree it that it would be more profitable to do it that way, it just seems like too much of a hassle for me to deal with at the moment. Looks like I will just keep them for now. I really do appreciate the advice from all of you though.
