    Ahoy, ahoy. I need some advice from my fellow Trannies. Ha.

    I have a friend who wants to trade me straight up for my MISB TRU MP Rodimus.
    Here is what he has offered:

    My MP Rodimus for the following MOSC/MISB figures:

    Classics Optimus
    Classics Rodimus
    Classics Bumblebee
    Classics Cliffjumper
    Classics Mirage
    Classics Grimlock
    Classics Astrotrain
    Classics Ramjet

    I already own Rodimus, Cliffjumper, and Ramjet MOSC so I can flip those. My question is do you think this a good deal and will I be able to get a MP Rodimus for anywhere near close to retail like I paid for mine?

    V2 Rodimus goes for around $210, those figures are worth more than that, I'd say do it.

    Edit: I just realized yours is the tru version, you would be stupid not to trade.

    Well, you could easily sell the three you already have in that lot, and get a new TRU MP Rodimus with the money from them. So it'd be free classics figures.

    uh, wow, why even ask. Trade! You can still get TRU Rod for retail price. The figures ur friend is offering is worth in the neighborhood of about at least $180. Probably over $200.

    ur saying TRU Rod is $120?

    Edit: And yes, Classics Rod, Cliff, and Ramjet are fetching big dollars, especially MOSC.

    Edit 2: Just checked Ebay, you can get TRU Rod for $80. You can sell of Classics Rod, Cliff, and Ramjet to buy back TRU and still have money left over. Plus you get the other Classics. Seriously, call ur friend up now and make the trade. Now that you know the value of his lot though, can you still allow yourself to make the trade?

    A MISB TRU MP Robinus for all those MOSC classics?

    No offense, but I don't believe you. In this day and age, one Google search can tell you the value of the trade.

    Yep. I wouldn't waste my time with the question if I was full of shit. Some people get lucky, I am one of those people. I am lucky to be in the right place and right time, and like I said a FRIEND is offering this. He needs space and only collects MP's and does not need the money. Thanks for the input!

    I know how to use Google. In this day and age, people use message boards to ask questions. Thanks again!

    I think so. I needed the encouragement. I'm just broke right now and don't want to have to overpay down the line to get another MP Rod. Thanks for your input!

    I hate to say it, but I wouldn't even trade Classics Bumblebee for that thing.


    ... and I have 4 versions of Classics Bumblebee.

    Nice! So I take it you don't like MP Rod? Ha.

    No but seriously, I'm a CHUGR fanatic and this would REALLY give my collection a kick in the ass. Also, I've gone this long and waited and waited to get a good deal on a Classics Prime alone as I have had Nemesis Prime for a while and he just stands there...alone. So lonely. So yeah. I think I am going with it.

    Off topic, TJ, but is that you and David Bowtunga? Awesome.

    LoL nope, I don't... but I own it. Go figure.

    And, seriously... my advice? Sell rodimus at cost, and just buy a prime straight out. You can get a Classics Prime MISB for less than 60 shipped, so getting cost for Roddy should cover it. Trying to trade though... no one's realisitcally going to trade their classics for that thing.

    And, yeppers that's me... "Bowtunga" HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHA. I love it.:lol
