    Good luck with the sale, d00d. I do hope we don't end up with people in here whining about how the "price ends up being ridiculous" (people bid it there, idiots)...

    Hell, I hope I DO end up with people complaining about the ridiculous price. BotCon wasn't cheap, and I'm not in this for charity, y'know?

    But I'll PM you a request to call 'em out if it gets outta control.

    Good luck. I'm putting my bagged set up after the show. Unless I get a damned good offer beforehand.

    I coulda gone either way on this, but I needed the money sooner rather than later thanks to being an unemployed student with a wife that can't keep a job (hope she never reads the boards, but it's the truth). And I'm hoping there's a little initial competition driving the prices up now in order to avoid the post-convention frenzy.

    Also, I'm kinda bumping my thread.

    $400.00 for the loose bagged set. Excellent, that's what I was hoping they would sell for. :D

    It's still got a week to go. I sold my wife's boxset for $700 including the freebie and a deal on the exclusives. I wonder how much this is going to end at.

    Bleh... I hate you Hasbro. All I wanted was a complete set of 6 Seekers. Armada stopped 1 short (If you include Universe Ramjet), and nothing else came close.

    So they get released as Classics. Yay, terrific mold! Even does the Coneheads justice. But guess what? 3 of them are Con Exclusives!

    So now the set is $400+ and only gonna go up, and it was out of my price range to begin with. And they're all sold out and never gonna make more...

    :cry 

    Ah, don't mind me. You paid for the set fairly, you're shelling out for the con, whatever you can get for it is just good business. And as far as Con Exclusives go, these are probably the most successful in history. I just wish Hasbro had released these to retail instead.

    For half of the money you can get loose complete G1 seekers/reissues. If it were me, I'd go that route.

    I bought two boxed sets and two loose ones, one for me and one for my friend and I defintely plan on selling the loose set, hopefully they go for a good price, I'd love to recoup most of my costs.

    I am really digging the movie toys as far as design and engineering, but I'm just not the biggest fan of the aesthetic. I would love to see Classics become the new Alternators--an unabashed G1 tribute collector's line. Titanium is just too erratic with characters and QC, and a Classics line could probably justify fewer repaints than Alts thanks to cheaper molds. And no reason to believe it wouldn't have some mass-market appeal post-movie, either.

    Fingers crossed, but I'm not holding my breath. I'm getting the impression that Hasbro is all full-steam-ahead-into-the-future with the movie on the horizon. And that could work out okay also, I guess.

    Holy crap...

    Finding a boxed set is going to be murder if bagged ones are going for super high prices. :(
