    Due to money and space issues I have limited my collecting to just Classics. But I've REALLY fallen in love with the new Prime figures coming out and don't think I'll be able to resist the urge to collect them. So now I need to decide what parts of my collection to sell off to make room for them: My Movie or Animated figures?

    Depending on which ever I do end up selling I will definitely keep some of my favorites like ROTF Prime, Animated Arcee and Rodimus, no matter what

    I love Animated, been collecting since 84 and they're probably my favourite line overall, great designs, great aesthetic. Not a massive fan of the movie toys, too far from the source in my book.

    You could split the decision and sell some of both. Keep the core cast and some favorites, and sell the rest. That is what i am thinking of doing myself at the moment.

    Sell movie, because:

    A.) The majority of Animated isn't worth much at the moment, but is more likely to have collector appeal in future (IMO).

    B.) Movie is very current and sought after, and you're likely to shift it more easily.

    C.) Animated is fucking awesome.

    Sell what you feel is the worst out of both collections.

    Since you plan on keeping favorites from either line, if I were in your shoes, I would choose least favorites from both lines and sell those.

    I would say keep Animated.


    I'm sure future Movie toys will be the same figure, but repainted.

    I'm guessing you actually want to sell whatever you list, so animated. Unfortunately, they don't sell for much, but at least they'll sell. It's pretty much a guarantee that any movie toy you post, 20 others will be selling it, and 5 of those 20 will be giving them away.

    If I were in your position, it would be movie. I know if I wanted to make some room in my collection, those would be the first things that would go since I care for hardly any of them.

    Even some of the DOTM toys I impulse bought a few months ago I could easily just toss away right now.

    I'd sell bits of both and keep your favourite figures, but I voted to sell Animated, as I much prefer the movie designs on the whole.

    It depends on which of the two you are least interested in. If I were in your situation, I'd sell off the movie figures.

    Get ride of your movie stuff. Animated and Prime stuff will look better together on your shelves than Prime and Movie.

    What this guy said^ Sell the movie toys because there's a lot of those and it'll save you more room.
