    I have an old friend who doesnt care about TFs. He had a box of them he just wanted to unload. I dont know what they are worth because I only buy reissue (cant afford MISB TFs from the 80s). I told him I would probably sell most of them because most of them I dont care for personally, but I did get a few that a really wanted. Did I get a good deal, the box included: Galvatron, Trypicon, Fortress Maximus, Rodimus Prime, Predaking, a Technobot (dont remember his name), sweeps, thundercracker, shrapnel, Scorpinox, and quite a few TFs Im not too familiar with 1987). The part that is questionable is the value because all of them are missing their weapons, sticker are worn, etc. I have to say that Trypicon is in excellent condition except the battery was left in him and the wire for the battery connecter has some corrosion. I'll post some pics in here in a few. I think I might be selling Fortress Maximus. Your thoughts?

    nice haul and worth more than you paid the fort max is that all by his lonesome.

    The condition will hold down prices you can get for them though.

    Oh yea, Clorox wipes to clean them? good idea or not? and fort max is missing ALOT, he doesnt have any of his little bots, except his head. Also, after paying him he said he had some more somewhere, he mentioned a BIG WHITE JET (Gotta be Skyfire) which he will give to me when and if he finds them. I just want to make my 70 back and keep the ones I want.

    From what I see, there probably isn't much to worry about getting your $70 back. :D 

    Selling that Fort Max alone, you should cover your cost there pretty well while sales from all other pieces will be like added bonuses.

    I would say that you'll end up with more $$$ than you imagined. :lol

    Quickswitch, Hun-Grrrr, & PowerMaster Prime.

    Cutthroat.

    Also that Fort Max looks to be in a minty-white condition. I'd say you'd make well over you $70 for him alone.

    In many cases white plastic yellows over time. The closer the plastic is to the original white color, the more valuable it is.

    Yeah, you'll probably get 200+ for that Fort Max.

    Im still thinking about which ones I want to keep. Im thinking about just selling it all and buying some reissue instead. Send me a message with what you are interested in and an offer. Oh man! Some of this money is going back to my friend, didnt know Fort Max was worth so much!

    Thx, but there are some photos, actually plenty, see the first page for this thread. did you want to see something closer up just let me know. Here is a link for detailed photos of Scorponok and Fort Max. Though I must warn you that someone has already made an offer on Fort max and scorp, but let me know if your interested anyways, because all sales are open until money is transferred.

    Awesome! the pic in your thread is hilarious. You could go with another quote for the pic, "Slag would rather be hanging out with the fellas, instead he got stuck with ladies night out" lol the orange one kind of looks like she looking at slag to say, "what are you doing here?"

    heck just selling Cerebros ( Fort max's headmaster) would net you more than $100.

    Props to you for being willing to kick back some your good fortune to your friend.

    Fort max in his condition is probably worth about $400 to $500 minimum and could go higher.
