    I'm thinking of selling off a few items from my collection, to raise money for my impending wedding, and I am trying to work out how much to ask for the following (either on TFW or eBay):
    Beast Wars Metals
    X-9 Ravage (1 of each shoulder sticker applied)
    BWNeo
    Longrack
    Heinlad
    BWII
    Tasmania Kid Vs Dirge
    Stampy (MIB)
    RID
    Urban Camo Ruination
    Megatron
    Ultra Magnus (MISB)
    Armada
    Blurr
    Lazerbeak
    Energon
    Ironhide
    Skyblast
    Strongarm
    Signal Flare
    Energon Saber
    Perceptor
    Divebomb
    Battle Ravage
    Cruellock
    Insecticon
    Snowcat
    Robotmasters
    R-Blade (MIB)
    Exclusives
    TFCC Skyfall
    All are MOC/MIB.
    Any ideas?

    I agree on most of those prices, except I think RID Ultra Magnus will only top out at $30 US

    Hmm. Maybe I'll hang onto them; it hardly seems worth it to sell them.

    The armada and Energon stuff won't fetch much at all. Maybe $5 since they're sealed, but it's all pretty recent. The RID Magnus goes really low, or did last summer when I got mine for under $20 shipped. Usual price I saw was $20-30. The X-9 and Skyfall are the ones I think most likely to bring much profit, not sure of numbers for them though.

    It's my experience that Armada/Energon stuff's more often than not going for pretty cheap right now. :/

    Skyfall might be tempting to someone else in the UK that doesn't wanna get shipping-raped, though.

    I hope that's not really a surprise to anyone. Many of these toys were on widespread clearance only a year or two back - Readily available for half the original retail price or less. You have to expect it's going to take time for these toys to appreciate in value much - If they ever will...

    And it's a good question whether they will- a lot of the loose BW stuff I've seen goes for retail or even less 10 years later. Hell, I got a MOSC Silverbolt for... well I don't remember exactly but no more than $10.

    As for the rest- I'm omitting test shots since I'm clueless on pricing them.

    $100+ Hasbro G1 Optimus Prime reissue (MIB, stickers unapplied, perfect condition)
    $25-30 each Takara book style reissue Prowl & Jazz (MIB, stickers expertly applied)
    $40ish Takara #09 Anime Starscream reissue (MIB, non-DVD edition, stickers unapplied)
    $80-100 Takara Book Style Megatron reissue (MIB, stickers unapplied, complete with mousemat & Decepticon stickers)
    $40ish [assuming this is the older D-22 reissue] Takara Starscream reissue (MIB, stickers unapplied)
    $20 Hasbro Dirge reissue (MIB, stickers unapplied)
    $50? G1 Snaptrap (Boxed, stickers applied, all Piranacon accessories present, box in good shape and with all internal packaging & instructions)
    $70? G1 Sureshot (Boxed, all internal packaging & instructions)
    $200 Botcon Descent Into Evil 7 figure boxed set (MIB, perfect condition)
    $no idea Botcon 04 Optimus Prime print, signed by Peter Cullen
    $40-50+ E-Hobby Victory Saber set (MIB)

    The G1 MIB prices are total guess.
