Right, so I like to buy things on clearance with the intention of either kitbashing or reselling them. I'm way behind either way. (http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f303/claywyatt1982/IMG_20130604_232952.jpg) And since I have many wonderful things on preorder, I'd best get to it.

I'll list things in-forum for the most part, but I also need to sell a fair bit of stuff through ebay. They've established a certain threshold of sales before you get your paypal monies immediately instead of three weeks later, and I haven't sold much through the service since they changed that.

First auction is for Generations Thundercracker (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=221236048964). I set the price based on completed and sold listings data.

Will add more stuff as needed. Thanks! :)

You don't happen to have the new Generations Springer & Blitzwing in the stack, do you? Doubt it, but thought I'd ask...

Make a list in here as well. I can spot animated, prime, movie and generations stuff!

None on hand, but they're out around here. Will snag a pair when I do the rounds next week if you still want them.

Thanks for the offer, Clay. Very generous, as ever. To be honest, I asked in case you had some you needed to get rid of.

I think I may wait and see if these guys come out here in the UK later in the year. I just can't imagine Hasbro UK will drop the ball so badly they don't bring the Thrilling 30 over. No wait... I can. But I live in hope. I'll let you know if I change my mind/get too nervous I'll miss out on Springer, if that's OK, and see if you are still happy to pick them up for me.

Not a problem. They're still available, so just let me know while I can still grab them for you. grapple.

Will update this thread big time tomorrow when I dismantle the stack. :o

Generations Wheeljack, Warpath, and Thundercracker are all present in multiples if anyone wants. Will peel another layer in the morning.

Would be interested in a Generations Wheeljack (assuming it's unmodified?). Let me know what you're after.

Sold another Thundercracker on ebay, whoo!

This is so neat... sell toys, get money. What a concept! Eventually I can reclaim that shelf...

Found a sandstorm if anyone is looking for one.

I'd really like a Generations Sandstorm if you still have him - didn't realise he was out! PM me about it and what I owe you for Skystalker. :)

Here's some of the stuff in the stack:

2x FOC Bruticus (or two sets of five, rather)
2x deluxe Airachnid
1x deluxe RID Soundwave
1x deluxe RID Seargent Kup
3x HFTD Battle Blade Prime (voyager)
Multiple Generations Wheeljacks and Warpaths, and a couple of Thundercrackers left in there somewhere...

All the above is sealed product. Will go on the ebay block if no one here wants them.

Would you be willing to break up the Combaticons, or are you looking to move them as a set? I've been looking for a Brawl forever, but have no interest in the others.

Geoff, just sent you an email...

(Forum replies after this will be eaten by goblins as I'm going to re-run the db export.)

Looks like Denyer's got me all sorted on the Brawl front. Thanks!

What are you looking to get out of Bruticus (besides hours and hours of non-stop fun)?

Buy a Vehicon! (http://www.ebay.com/itm/221276866977?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649)

Buy a Sunstreaker! (http://www.ebay.com/itm/221276982622?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649)

Buy a Thundertron! (http://www.ebay.com/itm/221284973378?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649)

Buy a Battle Blade Optimus Prime! (http://www.ebay.com/itm/221284980319?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649)

I have a sealed Alternator Optimus Prime for $30 if anyone's interested. Otherwise, it'll go on the ebay block.

Clay

Buy an Animated Starscream! (http://www.ebay.com/itm/221293680663?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649)

I'm so prompt! Here's the composition of the stack:


1x FOC Bruticus (Onslaught, Swindle, Brawl, Vortex, Blast Off) (note: these weren't bought clearance like the rest, so I'm aiming to get within the ballpark of regular retail - what I paid - back out of them. I can wiggle though)
2x TF Prime Rumble
6x DOTM Jolt
10x Generations Warpath
1x Reveal The Shield Jazz (looking for full price for this one)
3x DOTM Barricade
5x Generations Wheeljack
1x Prime Airachnid
1x Generations Kup
1x DOTM Bumblebee
1x Prime Sergeant Kup
2x Generations Thundercracker


Pretty much everything was bought on clearance at larger stores or when they appeared in discount chains to be remaindered at $5. If you're wondering why so many Jolts, I had planned to do a blue repaint, but to disassemble the figure I'd need to selectively destroy parts of two figures and then reassemble one whole figure. I got extras in case I messed up royally... but the upcoming Takara blue repaint with the whips makes that idea somewhat superfluous, no?

Also have a sealed DOTM Leader Sentinel Prime on the top of the pile.

EDIT: Italicized items are being negotiated. Please check back later for the availability of a product. Thanks!

An alternative use for all those Warpaths is to convert them into Impactor via a shapeways kit and some paint. (http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/946284-impactor.html) If anyone would prefer that (Dalek?), just holler.

I'd love a Generations Kup if you still have one!

Adding a bit more:

Battle Blades Optimus Prime, sealed in box (http://www.tfu.info/2010/Autobot/BattleBladesOptimusPrime/optimusprime.htm)
Optimus Prime (http://www.tfu.info/2011/Autobot/WMOptimusPrime/optimusprime.htm) with Comettor (http://www.tfu.info/2011/Autobot/Comettor/comettor.htm), still sealed in the box
Sharkticon Megatron (http://www.tfu.info/2013/Decepticon/SharkticonMegatron/megatron.htm), sealed in box
DOTM Megatron (http://www.tfu.info/2011/Decepticon/Megatron/megatron.htm), sealed in box
Alternators Prime (http://www.tfu.info/2006/Autobot/AltOptimusPrime/optimusprime.htm), sealed in... bubble?
Thundertron (http://www.tfu.info/2012/StarSeeker/Thundertron/thundertron.htm), loose, but still have the box

I also have an Animated Blackout (http://www.tfu.info/2010/Destron/Blackout/blackout.htm) that I'm not 100% attached to. I really like it, but I only had it out of the box briefly and he's been sitting in there ever since release... he could use a more loving home.

Also have a Generations Fall of Cybertron Skywarp in the pile now. If no one has an interest in any of the above stuff, it'll be moving to ebay within the next week or so.

I found a Generations Rattrap today, confident that someone was looking for him, but can't recall who... could it be you?

If not, I'll take him back for a refund tomorrow.

Dead Man Wade

I'd happily take him off your hands if no one has already expressed an interest.
