    Ok, as some of you may know, I recently scored a ton of TFs from a lady who wanted to get rid of them. Well, she found her sons Trypticon, but its missing all of its peices, but other than that, its beautiful. Oh, and I got the peices for it, she didnt know they belonged to him. She wasnt sure of how much to ask me for it. What would be a reasonable price for it, assuming she has no clue how much to ask, I told her $30 at the most for it is what I could do, but I will go higher. How much should I tell her or settle for?

    No battery cover, I would say $20. But if it has the cover, $30 is fair.

    BTW, does it have the helicoptor pads? Those would add to the price too.

    Yes, it has one of the helipads, but I got the other one. She dosent even know that it transforms, so Ill try to take the helipad off, (I forgot to do that yesterday for my other Trypticon) Ill probally go $30, because Ive been getting cheap stuff from her already, so Ill just do that, but if I can get it cheaper, thats good. I took the cover off already. :D  Oh, how much would you say a G1 countdown would be worth, she has one, and I found all of its parts, except the Micromaster, and the base. She said that she had the base, she remembers seeing it. I told her it could probally fetch her about $40 on ebay complete, so Ill just give her that when I get it. Anyone know for sure?

    Would say 20, but would rather give her 30
    The extra 10$ would be a tip for being awesome.

    I wouldn't balk at giving her $30. Like you said, you have the prices from her already.
    And maybe she'll come across some more stuff....

    I got my Trypticon practically for free in a huge trade. It was in about the same shape as you're describing. I would've paid at least $20 for it.

    I feel the same way and have done the same in the past. If the deal's fair, almost too fair, I feel like I'm robbing people and try to give something back. Too nice, I guess....could never be a scalper, I'd feel too bad about it.
