    Looks like I'll be unloading my PRID Ultra Magnus(s) for cheap now assuming that's the retail version, and not a custom.

    That's kinda the whole point of my post... I'm not sure if I should sell the entire lot for one sum or each figure individually and how much I should sell each for.

    I do know that I will not sell Breakdown before unloading the rest. I don't want to wind up stuck with a partial collection, with the only piece missing being the hardest to replace.

    If you dont want to be lef with a partial collection then you have three options, sell them individually but be ready to unload several f them REAL cheap, or, be prepared to be selling them for a long time (months if you won't go for cheap) or, sell as a lot. Getting 'fair value' for each figure will take you quite a while, or you can get good value for some like breakdown and the FEs but you'll be left with several figures no one really wants for more than a few bucks.

    If you list on ebay expect to get about this much and it is a better lot.

    Consider selling piece by piece.

    Dems some big ol' shoulderpads. Nice.

    Grimwing doesn't look half bad either (in bot mode, at least), surprisingly. Wonder if he'll be a show character.

    Yeah, which is why I'll be classifying it as a Maximal for my collection. Reminds me of a green BW Silverbolt.

    Quasi-customized Cyberverse BH Optimus Prime (removed his ab-claws, added the jetwing backpack/guns from DOTM CV Preview OP and the cannon from DOTM CV Ironhide, plugged in the jetwing backpack using BH OP's stock gun without the missile, and plugged in a Revoltech Starscream's display stand into his butt port):

    I remember watching a reviewer saying that the hand always pointed up and the head articulation is rendered useless by the nose and chair inside the cockpit which I found so untrue.
