    I have heaps of stuff from the Armada era and newer and I am sick of lugging them around in tubs when I move.. what is the best way to unload them and to possibly get some of the clams back that I spent on them?

    I don't suppose that anything from 2002-newer is worth anything, right?

    Most figs are mint/loose/complete...

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    You could use the Junkion Exchange forums. Also, you could definitely get a decent amount of money from anything Armada-present. Depending on the condition of the item in question, as well as it's popularity, you stand a decent chance of getting more than you originally paid for it.

    Nah trying to sell loose newer stuff you'll make pennies compared to what you paid. You might get $5 for a loose $30 retail figure if you're lucky. You might get $50 for a lot that cost you a couple hundred.

    One fig that is worth something is cybertron Leobreaker, I sold mine on ebay with box and instructions for $70 US.

    Really? I like to browse the Junkion Exchange, and I'd swear that I've seen a lot of Armada/Energon stuff go for only a few bucks cheaper than the retail price, and on some occasions more. Maybe I'm jut delusional :)

    By all means you certainly could be right that at certain times they do go that high. But the turnover rate at such prices might be very low/slow, i.e. post 20 figs and sell 2 of them in a month or two, thus taking a long time to sell them off. There are also however many cases where hundreds of (retail, misb) dollars worth of BW to present stuff sells for very little, that's how I've gotten all my post-G1/pre-cybertron stuff, getting a good few sweet lots for $20-40.

    You're on crack man. :)  You can easily get $5-10 for deluxes depending on which ones, $15 for the ones with electronics, and so on.

    Depends on the figures. Some guys like Cybertron Leobreaker, Energon Beachcomber, and Energon Ultra Magnus are worth quite a bit. Most will sell for very little. If you really want to get rid of them, I'd try the trash can.

    I'd suggest doing some quick research on Ebay by checking completed listings and seeing what things have sold for. I've been looking for some loose AEC era TFs, and I've found that sales prices tend to be low, but shipping is inflated enough that I think the seller's are getting pretty decent values.

    Dude, don't listen to people that are encouraging you to blow them up or throw them away. It'd be better to sell them online to someone that wants them (kitbashers are always looking for figures to repaint/remold/reshell or take apart for parts) even if you take a loss. If you don't want to take the time & effort to sell individually, sell as lots. If all else fails, donate to charity.
