http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/bluestoneridge/m.html - ebay listings (including some of the wife's stuff), nothing not offered before.


Some Alt (Shockwave, that Trailbreaker thing I did, Bluestreak), Movie (Brawl, Sentinel, Sideways, Sideswipe, Shockwave), G1 (TFC Soundwave) to come but I kinda want to clear out what I'm shifting already first. Also probably going to get rid of most of my Prime but I think I'll sit on that for a while. Currently undecided on the G1 cars; they're not really on display but they're so beautiful.

Even my super-sexy Clover DX Gundam and Popy DX Dairugger XV might well be for the chop. :( Hanging onto my Joes as they're probably 500 + of easy to post easy to store money-in-waiting.

Might be interested in RTS Bee and the KO Prowl/Smokescreen - any chance of pics first?

Cliffjumper
2012-11-11, 07:04 PM
Yeh, will get them tomorrow when the light's a bit better. Not sure how well I'll do with Bee's face on that score but will try.

For the KOs... Smokescreen has diecast but can be a bitch to get into car mode. Red rally deco with made-up livery, might be some Engrish on there. Head painted red as a BT Cliffjumper by me, not a particularly good job TBH. http://chimungmung.com/images/bt01_red.jpg is the original.

Prowl is all-plastic but a reasonable BT replica (i.e. Japanese door lettering). Only real problem is robot mode white (e.g. head, arms) is a weird eggshell type colour - a bit like nicotine staining but he was like that when I got him... Aside from that he's not bad for a KO with good clean paint apps (though the 'Bot symbols are changed - from memory the same ones as on the Grimlock KO) and the like - IIRC the fingers are a bit loose. Gun and baton included. Does have a BT KO box too. http://chimungmung.com/images/bt_1.jpg is the exact KO.

I haven't the shelf-space for him and I'd rather he went to someone who'll appreciate an excellent figure. I'm trying to prune my hoarding instincts. And get money, of course.

G1 Jetfire: mild yellowing, missing gun clip but unbroken, good joints, all armour & rifle, respectable stickers - 45.:)


Could be tempted by this depending on the extent of the yellowing.

Decided anything that's been in a draw for a few months is cullable; likely upcoming change of circumstances likely to further affect.


Robot Masters Star Saber: 100% complete, instructions, minty fresh, tatty box - 15


This.

Cliffjumper
2012-11-12, 08:49 AM
EDIT: @ Dalek Will see if I can photograph a way that it shows up; it /might/ just be nicotine staining (which, IIRC, can clean off) rather than yellowing-yellowing.

EDIT: @ Reverend - will get some pictures later today :)

Are congratulations in order?

Yeh, I suppose. But it's more a space rather than money thing - any funds will go on me or at best Xmas or treats for the wife, we're just clearing out stuff we don't really use in order to free up a room in the house. And I've never really liked the idea of having a box of TFs or whatever in the attic that no-one uses.

The only way I can have any number of Transformers is to have a box under the bed and keep things in regular display circulation because of the wife (who still hates them...).

Yeh, mine don't really have that sort of circulation. Some of these guys haven't been transformed since I reviewed them for my site, plus I've got loads of shelf space so if I'm not using it for these guys...

Pass on the Prowl (thought it might have been the Subaru in black and white) but definitely interested in the other two.

Pictures and additional items & details edited into top post. Non-TF stuff to follow soon.

@ Denyer: got a box with your name on it anyway; can chuck bits in with that if you like?

Denyer
2012-11-12, 08:16 PM
If it's easier. Just remind me what your PP addy is. Also interested in Pipes and Air Raid, and haven't read further down the list yet...

Cool, let me know what you're after, don't worry about postage what with regularly sending me tons of awesome stuff. (Pipes rocks, BTW, especially if you have Huffer as comparison - all-time most awesome retooling work ever).

http://s49.beta.photobucket.com/user/TomPrankerd/library/StuffForSale should (though Photobucket seems to be shite now) bring up a gallery of everything I'm hawking if people want a browse.

Bloody Denyer getting in there first with Pipes.

Jetfire looks nicely battle damaged... just one more thing [/Columbo], size wise how would be compare to (the original) MP Prime?

Cliffjumper
2012-11-12, 08:50 PM
Just below shoulder height IIRC (I think there's actually a picture on my facebook). If it's UK shipping with someone I've traded with a few problems I've no worries with doing a return if you're disappointed with his condition.

EDIT: My bad, closer to chest window height.

Great, that means he should fit on my shelving. Would it be OK to sort this out on my next pay day (Friday the 23rd)?

I'm interested in Twin Twist. What condition is the chrome on the drill bits in?

Cliffjumper
2012-11-12, 10:11 PM
Good - a couple of small nicks, but they look more like where the thing came off the trees rather than actual damage. Gun's not bad either. A few of the stickers have seen better days but overall I'd rate him as pretty good.

Rack 'n Ruin
2012-11-12, 10:41 PM

I like the weird sequel/prequel one better, actually. It might just be because of the more random casting and having a bearded Bob Hoskins.

If my SOCs (on an ebay near you now!) go I might be able to drop the price on him a little bit.

Cool... one thing I can kinda offer (to anyone) is part-ex on DVDs with the warning that I'm very OCD about specific covers and that the list I'm after is constantly shifting.

As a further general thing, assuming everyone pays up fine I've done alright with the SoCs on ebay and can probably hold onto a few specific bits until after Xmas for anyone with a solid interest. The live action pieces will probably be going up next week (if nothing else I think anyone interested here has them) but the rest I'm not so fussed on getting out any time soon.

Denyer
2012-11-17, 06:30 PM
very OCD about specific covers
Stick it up somewhere (maybe as an anonymous Amazon wishlist?) and I'll see if I've got any of the covers...

Cliffjumper
2012-11-17, 08:16 PM
I love making wishlists.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/registry/wishlist/2YMSE8848OHM3 < Priority should sort the ones I just need covers for (I have repurchased most of the offenders and have learnt the lesson to always fork out on ebay for the guy who's taken a picture rather than used the stock photos); and I've tried picking the correct covers wanted for the others; generally if at all possible I avoid anything with some big ugly "Blah blah collection" banner.

I know Dirty Dozen is a war film, I know Get Carter is 'iconic', I know who made Strangers on a Train. It's not always possible, but I like it to be original posters and stuff on the front; all DVDs should be like that by law.

And, while it's usually impossible, I avoid Tartan and Artificial Eye like the plague. I'm not a Guardian reader.

Denyer
2012-11-17, 10:59 PM
'Fraid that's a no on those.

Don't most films have multiple posters, though?

Cliffjumper
2012-11-20, 06:48 AM
An original poster, then :p (though TBH for the stuff I'm looking at there does largely seem to be only one for the majority of English language films). Ahh, back when films had posters rather than randomly Photoshop-remixed publicity shots.

Cheers anyway - it's a pretty eclectic bunch due to the amount I've rounded up already (something like 120 DVDs in a couple of months); I've double-dipped to replace a few awful sleeves already and after a couple of finger-burnings have been a lot more careful. I still can't get over quite how preposterously cheap DVDs are on ebay - these things are actually costing a lot less than building up a collection of second-hand videos did 15 years ago (there's also a hell of a lot more out and in much higher numbers).

Denyer
2012-11-20, 06:41 PM
Helps that discs are really light for postage. I find that Amazon marketplace and Play tend to be cheaper than eBay for the sort of stuff I'm after; they must not take as big a percentage cut -- anything even remotely well-known will be being sold by Music Magpie / zoverstocks and if others are selling at the time it's a race to the bottom as they undercut each other.

Cliffjumper
2012-11-21, 09:41 PM
Yeh, there're a couple of bits I've Amazoned instead, either through irritation at being repeatedly outbid or because sellers are charging 2.25 (or whatever the maximum postage is) as default (often to cover themselves for the boxed sets and the like they're also selling). I keep winning discs for pennies and getting pleasantly surprised when they actually turn up because I'm not entirely sure I'd honour such low sale prices myself (4 Hitchcocks for 14p being the current record).

Starscream, Megatron and Ravage currently up on ebay. Might sling up a load of smaller stuff in a week or so.

SCSW: I'm basically cool to hold Tracks for you until Feb. (know how much of a bitch Jan. can be for money) but don't really want to drop below 20 + P&P for him.

numbat
2012-11-22, 06:53 AM
I lost some money selling DVDs on eBay because the maximum postage allowed didn't cover the actual cost (for things like Star Wars Trilogy Boxset), unless I'm just completely incompetent and did it all wrong (which is perfectly possible...).

Addl
2012-11-22, 11:02 AM
I am also interested in BT Tracks (just to snag it from SCS.

What is postage to Germany (and just for interest china)?

I can let you send the stiff to my father who owns like 200 tfs in the basement but does not know of this.

Yeh - they are fakes, so I'd rather avoid the tightrope of ebay (i.e. trying to avoid saying 'fake' without deceiving anyone). But it's probably going to take severe financial problems to get rid of the cars (like the Joes they're going to be all-or-nothing - no more Skids, Prowl, Hound, Smokescreen...); probably Anno Tomini. Would probably be looking for a fair amount for KOs, mind - probably about their price without HK shipping.

Generally I am finding the process quite cathartic. I've always been far too possession-orientated, hoarding stuff just so I've got it and not genuinely appreciating it. Leader Brawl is one of the best Transformers ever made - so what's the point if he's in a draw when he can go to someone who will play with him? Plus I'm saving wages and the like so having a bit of pocket money for DVDs and books doesn't hurt.
