I found a box of Transformers.

Postby aj712 » Fri Aug 14, 2009 3:22 am

I found a box of Transformers gathering dust. I took a look at a few of them and some of them are broken, but nothing horrible and I still have most of the pieces.

The box they came in said they are from the 1980s.
There is also a Transformers chapter book and a video tape with the original cartoon movie.

I looked some of them up and they said something about Transformers Beast Wars. I have no idea what that means since I don't follow the series.

I would just like to know if it's worth my time trying to sell these or if I should just kick them to the curb. I know nothing about the series, the toys, where to start...so any help would be great.

Here's a picture of the collection:

Never EVER kick them to the curb.

The bulk of it looks to be Beast Wars with one or two figures from Beast Machines and Armada.

The only thing from 1980's there is the collector case.

If you can get some more pics, preferably individual figures plus all the loose bits and pieces you've got we'll help you piece them together and give you a better understanding of their worth.

NEVER THROW OUT TRANSFORMERS! If it's beast wars or beast machines they would be a rare treasure but they may sell for a high price! But i would keep them you could always try and fix them! :grin:

Come on, This person is looking for our help not to be razzed. Yes it's not the best assortment out there but there are parts in there I'm sure people are interested in.

Educate and debate, but don't be a dick to someone looking for assistance.

Edit for response rather than add new post.

I'd keep them even if they're broken or of no resell value. They're prob a part of your childhood memories, that alone is priceless :-?

Man, no matter how worthless you think those toys are, eBay is still your best bet. I've sold the most random junk and part lots of Tf parts and gotten 10x more than what I thought I would.
