    ok this is not a sales thread, but a thread to get an idea of what I should price something at, as it goes got a large lot recently which contained in it of all things 24 G1 Astrotrains out of those 24 I was able to patch together 22 fair body, transforming AstroTrains (see pic), now i'm not going to sell all of them but trying to figure out what to price the ones I will at.

    also i've noticed some differances on the wings of these astro trains as shown in the picture where the wing connects to the body right by the front wheel locomotive assembly some Astrotrains have a curved recess while others have a flat recess what is the differance on these? and whatever about them?

    I had 7 Astrotrains at one time. Now I'm down to 4. He's my favorite Transformer and it is really easy to fix one from a few junkers.

    Astrotrains are relatively common as far as G1 toys go. A lot were made and it helps that they are pretty durable (again, as G1 toys go).

    Sorting through my leftovers from last year's Botcon, I think there were at least 3 complete ones in there and I've picked up a couple more this year. Maybe I need to lower the price a bit.
