New Help Again! What's a fair price for this used lot?

Local guy has a lot of used Transformers, trying to purchase at a fair price with your help. Thanks for any input you have.

First up is one of the ugliest color schemes I ever liked. I think it's a exclusive thundercracker like new

Image

Image

Next is a used Henkei inferno in great condition with nice chrome and a ladder upgrade.

Image

Next is Henkei Smokescreen? It's nice but has some paint wear and the chrome gun is a little worn.

Image

These guys are like new.

Image

Nemesis prime is in great shape with very tight joints but his wind deflector has some light paint chips on a section of it.

Image

Last is a Shadow Commander in awesome shape and I've confirmed it's not a KO but does not come with Rockets which he claims it didn't when he got new and the sword had chips and is useless. He says someone makes a upgrade kit to add the rockets but I need help finding it if so.

Image

Thanks again for your assistance.

He wants $335.00, which I know is high but $200 sound low. I don't think he's a crackhead, lol.

i added everything up from original costs and collecting aftermarket costs... i cant find any more than it being worth $230 at best. so he needs to lower his price, cause youre not stupid, you asked around to get as accurate info as you could.
anything over $250 is absolute robbery.

Hat did you come up with for original cost and collecting cost?

$335 is too high

From what I can remember on current pricing
Actionmaster TC = $60
Nemesis and Upgrades = $100
Inferno + Screen = $40
Runamuck and the freebie = $50

Don't buy if its over $300

Thanks for your breakdown. The only thing I question in your list is about inferno. I couldn't find Henkei Inferno anywhere and this even has the gears of war ladder upgrade. I want this stuff but I'm not paying a penny over $300. Thanks, let's see how it turns out.

Oh don't mind me. I'm just an arsehole who doesn't like to pay too much for TF's. Image

But yeah, like the others have said, don't go over $250, i'd really push for $200.

This is just me when i brought this stuff from online retailers.

Overrun= 95 bucks shipped from TF source
Inferno= 50 bucks classics version (so you have a better version there ) ebay. =/
Runamuck (white one?) is $40 bucks for being in the club
inferno upgrade= whole tfc gears of war set was like 35
my Nemesis was the united version for $100 and i never got upgrade but they sell it on BBTS for like 100 +?
and dont have the TC

so just putting it in perspective. as a lot you should get things cheaper. or i just way over pay for everything like usual =/
Looking for:
FP Insecticons
Botcon Redux Spark (Pyro)

for Trade:
MISB FE Arcee
MISB RTS G2 Laser Prime
MISB Generation WFC Megatron

I gave in and paid the darn $335 but he threw in a mint complete Botcon Flak for the same price. Thanks guys, I know it wasn't the best deal but what can I say, I was at the edge of my seat.

well if you are satisfied with your purchase then you are good to go. the add in character was nice, but still a little steep for my blood... enjoy and happy collecting.

I would have said $200-$250, even before I read any of the other responses. Maybe they seller could get $300+ if they sold each item separately, but as a lot I don't think it's worth that much.
