    Pretty self-explanatory, but has there been a toy(s) in your collection that you've been on the fence about selling, but there's something that deters you from doing so?

    For me, it has to be MP-05 Megatron. I don't hate the toy, but I don't like it nearly as much as my other MPs. However, if I solid it, I'd have one less unique MP mold in my collection as I currently have all 3 seekers, MP-04, Grimlock, and Rodimus.

    Trying to thin out my movie collection, and I can't decide whether or not to sell Leader Class Ironhide.

    I'm in the same boat, so for now I just pushed him way to the back and hid him in with the human alliance figures. He looks good next to Jazz and Bumblebee...

    I 100% want to unload my KO CC but I paid so much for it that I don't think it would be fair to sell it to another TFW member for what I would be happy with. I obviously wouldn't expect MORE than what I paid, but I definitely want more than the $40 it was (or still is) going for on the KO sites :eek:

    Haha, yeah, actually several for me. I've been waffling on selling:

    -a lot of the Cybertron line; they don't feel very "collectible" to me, and yet I like the molds so much that I can't quite bring myself to sell them (not that they'd likely fetch much)
    -Hearts of Steel Optimus and Annihilator; I am passing on the future HoS releases (Shockwave and Starscream look under underwhelming to me), but I can't quite bring myself to sell these two
    -Revoltech DOTM Prime; I don't like how floppy he is, but Revoltech Bee looks amazing, and I suspect that if I get Bee I'll regret having sold Prime... so he stays for now
    -Dual Model Kit Prime: the high going rate makes me tempted to sell this guy, especially since DMK Bumblebee was disappointing. But I feel like Prime is the better of the two, and I might regret selling him off some day

    Yeah I have a few... Botcon SP Optimus Prime, Botcon Optimus Primal, Botcon Darksyde Megatron, most of my Classics... Hard to turn away from the profits I'd see by selling these. Lol.

    My entire Animated collection (including Botcon and exclusives). I pretty much have everything and I'm kind of tired of looking at it.

    I am currently trying to decide if I should sell my Ice Cream Twins. I am fine with letting them go. Since I have the HSSB one. I am just cautious about the broken peg the Skids or Mudflap has in vehicle mode. They still transform fine. I'm just wondering if anyone would be willing to buy it.

    The only things I would consider selling would be my Power Rangers Megazords. I love them, but I don't collect PR anymore.

    Grand Maximus Jr.

    Long before I acquired a complete full size Grand Maximus, the Jr. version was my stand in for the character in my collection. Even though the real deal makes him kind of obsolete, I still have a hard time bringing myself to sell him. But with Botcon coming up, and me being adamant about picking up Metalhawk, I may have to sell him (among other stuff) to pay for him.

    Most of the Alternators I have. Along with MP Rodimus.

    They're awesome but I just don't have a place in my collection for them. They're too big to really interact with the majority of my collection.

    Deluxe ROTF Sideswipe. I have the repaint/retool versions of every Sideswipe mold (ROTF Swerve, Walmart Sidearm Sideswipe, DOTM Darksteel), and I really feel regular ol' Sideswipe is kind of redundant at this point. At the same time, something keeps telling me I'll regret selling him, and I don't know why. I don't dislike the toy, I just... don't really find myself caring as much as I once did, y'know?

    Alternators. If I own the corresponding Binaltech version, it's not an issue. But what should I do with the Alts that didn't come out in Binaltech, like Decepticharge, Rumble, Rollbar, Ricochet and Jaguar Ravage?

    Titaniums. Like Alternators, it's a line that'll probably never get revisited. And a lot of them are kind of cool. But the proportions can be wonky, they don't really fit in with any other lines...

    Really I have this problem with any figures I've bought but never opened. On the one hand, a complete MISB collection of either of these lines would be really cool. On the other hand, am I really getting my money's worth if I never open them?

    Haha! I'm on the fence about selling my complete Monstructor to raise funds to buy MP-05 Megatron.
