    Hey everybody,

    I've started selling off my collection to finance my move to Japan next year.

    Curious what reasonable prices would be for the following items:
    eHobby Astrotrain (MIB, some stickers applied)
    Micron Legend Convoy (MIB)
    Micron Legend Jetfire (MIB)
    Micron Legend Ultra Magnus (MIB)
    Galaxy Convoy (MIB)
    MA-21 Battle Mode Optimus Prime (Loose, mint)
    Impossible Toys Valkyrie
    Botcon 2000 Maximals poster
    Botcon 2000 Predacons poster

    Thanks for any and all input :)

    Astrotrain can probably net you at least $300, possibly a good bit more. Dunno about the others.

    Cool, thanks. That's about what I had in mind.
    So, anyone else have any input?

    According to completed eBay auctions, Galaxy Convoy went for $121 and $180 :) eek:) , but they are in the USA. Sealed Armada Jetfire seems to be around $50? I am sure Micron Legend version fetches more even if it's opened.

    You can probably sell galaxy Convoy for $100 or so in Japan, even Micron Legend Convoy might net you some cash (they are both too big to carry along, I know :redface2: )

    Good luck with the move and I hope someone else will chime in and give you more pricing help :)

    Selling Japanese TFs to finance a move to Japan.

    Almost poetic.

    Okay, his Astrotrain has been opened, and the sealed ones on ebay for $300ish aren't moving, so he may want to list it a tad lower.

    I see two active listings for $600 and $325. One completed, but it's AFA graded for $700. I wouldn't go much under $300 honestly, unless it's missing something.

    Only a nut would pay $700, even if it's AFA. It's a reissue that is fetching same money as some original figures...It may be desired, but not that much.

    One of the reasons why I can't bring myself to fork out this much of $$$ for that eHobby Astrotrain...

    Look at all the eHobby pieces & it's not difficult to see just how many of those have been "reissued" again. (TFC Book Reissues, Encore etc.)

    You risk spending all that $$$ only to have the Makers release it again in due time. :redface2:
