    I really doubt you'll be able to get retail price for them, seeing how most places still have a crapload of Animated shelfwarming.

    Honestly, if you can wait a while, like, a couple of years, you'll probably do better with them.

    I say don't sell them unless you desperately need the money right now. Even then, I doubt you'd get retail for them.

    Like what everyone has said. Especially since stores still have them and on sale.

    better idea, unopened, right? return them for a full refund to stores (and then some...)

    I do this all the time with figure's I never opened.... (which was just once, with animated voyager megatron... friend got me one, owned one... but to lazy to take it to store... that was maybe a year ago? After a long time, I take it around the beginning of June (this year) and I get a full refund for it! (even without a reciept!)

    The answer lies in doing a completed items search on eBay.

    I can't imagine those going for much. In my area, 5 of those figures are major shelfwarmers and the remainder can be found without much difficulty. Other than maybe Skywarp, grey Shockwave, purple Shockwave and Wreckgar, I don't think any Animated figures are worth any more than retail right now...and even those probably wouldn't go for significantly more than retail.

    Unless you really need the money from selling them, definitely consider donation to charity as an option.

    This. Long way off, but you'll feel good afterward.
