    What would be a fair (ei: a medium range not the highest or lowest) for a complete set of on screen characters from the first and second live action movies. All figures are in mint and complete except Arcee who has a broken sword mechanism (out of package). Every figure also includes the instructions except Deluxe Barricade w Frenzy. I would like it priced as one lot.


    Here are some pics and thanks for your help.

    Before S&H....

    $3-5 per scout
    $5-10 per deluxe
    $15-20 per voyager
    $50-100 per leader/Devastator*

    *Methinks ROTF Leader Megs could net you more than that. Not entirely sure, though.

    ... did you post pretty much this same topic like... a long time ago? I am having serious deja vu, down to Barricade with instructions.

    Given the words in the first post, he just wants to sell a lot made up of the on-screen characters from the first two movies.

    Which ones do you have as Premiums? And for characters with multiple size toys, which ones do you want to include?

    This seems fair, though I'd say more like 10-15 for most Voyagers. The only ones that haven't really depreciated are the Leaders, who have appreciated. Pretty sure Jetfire's worth a pretty penny at this point, too.

    No this is my first time.

    There are no premium figures. All are first release versions of the figure. I have all on screen characters in multiple size classes.

    Everything in those blurry pics (sorry) is what will be included.

    I would revise that to:

    $3-5 per scout
    $5-10 per deluxe
    $10-15 per voyager
    $25-50 per leader

    Certain figures may be going for more, so you'll want to research them a little more carefully.

    Clearer pictures might help too, nothing you aren't trying to sell. I'd eBay it with a starting bid of $100 or 150.

    I concede that the voyagers could be lower, but I think the leaders can go for more than $50 easily, especially Movie 1 and ROTF (not sure of DOTM).

    You might be right. My general impression is that movie toys have depreciated. I think those leaders require some extra researching.

    I know ROTF Optimus, Movie 1 and ROTF Leader Megs (especially the ROTF Shadow Command repaint) and Movie 1 Leader Brawl go for a good amount. Movie 1 Optimus and the DOTM leaders seem to go for the lowest prices.

    Yeah, Brawl inexplicably got super-expensive even though he was about $15 around RotF times.

    It looks like you can crack at least $100 on that Supreme Devastator.

    Thanx for the input guys. I updated the first post to include a list of the figures than are in the pics.

    I would also like to reiterate that I did the ebay completed auction thing on every bot here. I came up with a price that I think is fair but I was curious to see what you all think this lot could sell for.

    I think you can get $600-650 for the Leaders alone.

    yeah I think to maximize value I would do some lots rather than one big lot and have low starting bid. Put the first movie guys together in one lot as Brawl will make it sell. Split the voyagers and delulxes between from the second movie with the desireable leaders- one lot with jetfire and prime, one with SS and Megatron, sell the HA's as a lot together (probably net between $150- 300 on any given day) and sell supreme devastator by himself (or include deluxe mudflap and skidz to make it a "movie scene"). That would be what I did if I was trying to get rid of my movie guys. Also keep in mind that we are over a year out from a major release of the last movie, so if you wait for the hype of the next movie you will maximize profit.

    I will have to take your sound advice in to serious consideration.

    Would expecting $1500 for the lot be too wild of a dream?

    More like $1,250.

    I forgot about your HAs. Those are also pretty popular in the secondary market...namely Barricade, Jazz, and Mudflap.

    I was thinking $1500 with free shipping.

    So I'm not too far off, $1250 is a happy number for me.

    Thank you so much for all your time and input guys. I am venturing in to the sellers market for the first time ever and want to do so in a fair manner.


    One more question,

    Which would be a better option, selling it here on the boards or ebay. At this point I want to optimize my earnings (I don't say profit because I spent more at retail than $1500 lol)
