    I'm kinda in a minor jam, and I'm considering selling one of the following G1 toys:

    Trypticon

    [​IMG]

    about 99% complete, just missing Full-tilt's gun, and 1 weapon stand. Walks, but the turret doesn't light up, (contacts need cleaned)

    Omega Supreme
    [​IMG]
    Tank works fine, only missing 4 of the yellow clips

    Metroplex-gotta get a pic of him......

    Anyway he's only missing Sixgun's seventh gun (handgun), Scampers small gun, and the missiles for the two big red guns..

    Jetfire....

    The pride of my miniscule collection, and probably the last one I'd ever get rid of. (It only took me 15 years to get him back)

    So you see my dilemma... what to put up for sale? I have a few more I'm thinking about, and those I don't feel as attached to. But I can't decide who on that list is gonna go...HELP!!!

    You'll get the most for Trypticon or Omega, somewhere less than that for Metro... Don't even consider Jetfire if you don't want to get rid of it. Especially considering the condition of it.

    Damn my lack of money..I've been looking for both Trypti and OS...heh.

    Yeah you'd probably get the most for one of them.

    Man, those would all be tough to choose from for me. Though I think I'd have to go for Omega Supreme, but thats just my least favorite of the three. All those look great.

    I'm thinking Omega or Trypty.
    Metroplex is fairly common and quite easy to find still in decent condition, and with the Bootleg version out there, you may not get much for him.
    Trypty is somewhat more scarce, and Omega seems to be pretty hard to find, both figures I have seen go for decent amounts. Trypty should fetch a fair price considering he has most of his parts.

    Omega, the missing clips may drag the price down, as they seem to be very hard to get.

    Jetfire, in that condition, and as what I'm guessing was something you bought because you had one as a Kid? Hang on to it.

    If you doubt even for a second that you would be happy to part with it, don't sell it.

    Keep these.
    Move on to selling Corneas, Kidneys and Lungs.

    Somethings you just can't replace.

    Good luck, and I hope you get to keep your collection.

    I'd sell Metroplex, he's the easiest one to replace should you later regret it.

    Were it me...

    Hot Rod. He's recent and easy to replace if the need be.

    Money wise... Jetfire is going to be a big one, though one I couldn't sell.
