Is the IDW TMNT series worth reading?

Nothing but bag of nickels for the next few years.

Get some extra shelves to store your shelves on.

@Andrusi:  Too many toys or not enough shelves, eh?

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 October 2016 - 11:15 AM)

Needs more dakka shelves.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2016 - 08:41 AM)

"Too many toys" for the shelf, you see.

@  Pennpenn : (22 October 2016 - 08:34 AM)

Bah! That isn't too many toys, that's not enough shelf space!

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2016 - 07:42 AM)

You know, too many toys. That thing where you can't figure out how to cram the newest one onto the shelf.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 October 2016 - 02:18 AM)

When you can't see the floor anymore.

@  Telly : (22 October 2016 - 12:04 AM)

"too many toys". what does that even mean? such a strange phrase

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2016 - 03:46 PM)

He's bought too many toys, now he's gotta play with them all! All aboard the Astrotrain! *choo choo*

bird is the word?

@  Locoman : (20 October 2016 - 09:50 PM)

That's probably the bird, isn't it? That laid the eggs! Livid!

As an outsider, whether Trump wins or loses, the results are bound to be hilarious. Not so much for Americans but you just know the most ridiculous things he will do are yet to come.

Anyone else having problems watching hulu tonight? The app isn't working on both my wii u and ps4.

@  MEDdMI : (18 October 2016 - 09:17 PM)

I have a tablet that runs on Wi-Fi only, with all the hotspots or sharing data off my cell, it's hardly ever an issue. Just need to be careful where you connect and what you do on said connection.

@  Arazyr : (18 October 2016 - 08:23 PM)

I've considered it.

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 08:22 PM)

Sounds like you might want to look into tablets with data plans.

@  Arazyr : (18 October 2016 - 08:20 PM)

It's not even the data plan that would be the problem for me. I'd probably use the hug out of a data plan. It's the VOICE plan I can't justify. 8^)

@  Arazyr : (18 October 2016 - 08:19 PM)

I have an iPod Touch and a "dumb" flip-phone on a pre-pay plan. I put $100 on it once a year, and never use it all. I'd love to get an actual smartphone, but just can't justify the expense.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 October 2016 - 06:37 PM)

The Moto phones are a good low-price option. I bought my mom a Moto E (her first cellphone, smart or dumb) and she's been really happy with it.

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 06:18 PM)

I've been looking at the Moto G family, personally. Seems like a good way to get a cheap one.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 October 2016 - 05:59 PM)

For a long time I thought a tablet was good enough for me, and was pretty firmly in the anti-smartphone crowd. But after getting my first one (a Nexus 5), I became a convert pretty fast

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 04:56 PM)

Probably going to give in on that soon, though

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 04:56 PM)

I've got a cheap tablet and an old dumb-phone, been too stubborn to pay for a data plan

@  D Immortalis : (18 October 2016 - 03:47 PM)

i dont even own a cell. =]

@  MEDdMI : (18 October 2016 - 03:14 PM)

My cell is about 5 years old. It barely stays alive without any apps running.

@  Gizmoboy : (18 October 2016 - 02:45 PM)

I still play every day. As for what's the point, that's a good question. I still enjoy taking gyms and leveling up my Pokemon though. I'm at 134 on my Pokedex though so I've almost got them all. :)

I wasn't sure if this was the right forum for this, but I figured it would be bad form to post it in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum since it's not up for sale yet. I'm looking to see what a fair price I could ask for these 2 figures I've got. Fair for me and the buyer, if you know what I mean.

I've been a semi-regular forumer here for about 6 years, so I trust your guys' opinions on such things. I've never tried to sell used TFs before, so I don't know where to begin. Of course, once I've come to a fair starting price, I'll post it here to the proper forum before taking it to E-bay. It's the least I could do ^_^

The truth of the matter is, while these toys are some of the big guns collectors like, they're not in the best condition (as the photos I've taken will show) but they do have their boxes, which I hear is a plus, regardless of quality.

I acquired this Metroplex and Jetfire from a friend about 3 years back who was moving away and found them in her attic. Since she knew I was a TFfan and her older brother no longer wanted them, she gave them to me. They've been sitting in my room for a while and I decided that I need money and someone else may appreciate them a bit more.

Here are pics in box:

As you can see, the boxes have seen better days. The Jetfire box has the techspecs cut out and barely holds together. Metroplex's is more complete, it even still has the original Toys R Us price tag($32.97 ^_^)

Toy pics in the next post.

Next up is pics of Jetfire himself.

He's got all his main parts. He's missing one of his Jet pods and his gun. His hands don't seem to want to slide back into the arms, I didn't want to force them. Clearly he has some random yellowing all over.

His left Clavicle joint (the part that allows the jet to fold in half) has a metal part that seems to have broken free of it's plastic encasement. It only really becomes an issue during transformation, as in Robot and his alt mode everything holds together pretty well without it. Also, one of the tail fin parts broke at the base while I was taking photos.

Up next: Metroplex.

Now Metroplex:

He's unfortunately missing alot of parts. He has almost no guns except a small white one. His fist parts are gone as well. The little robot helper/ Tower guy is missing his legs. All joints necessary for transformation to base mode function (as you can see by the above pics) The spring loaded Head popping mechanism functions as well.

So that's my story guys, please give me your honest opinion on what would be a fair asking price for these guys. Once I come to a decision, I'll make a proper ost in the Buy/Sell/trade section. Thanks alot!

Well, I'm no expert, but I'd say go do some research on mint and not-so-mint bots on Ebay, see what the regular market demand is for them, and then use your personal judgement on what you think the TF's are worth. Obviously you won't be able to get Mint-In-Box prices for them. So consider what you would pay for them at mint and then make what you think are fair deductions for the damages and missing items, as well as the overall condition of the bots.

All in all go with the things you think are fair. You certainly won't be able to please everyone but if you can get a fair price that you feel good with and the customer feels good paying, them it's win-win all around!

Because of the missing parts and the damage, I wouldn't expect to make a mint on these. Also keep in mind that Metroplex has been reissued recently.

I'm very aware that I won't be seeing MIB prices for these guys, hence asking for "Fair" price suggestions.

Thanks for the heads up about Metroplex re-issue.

Sorry to double post (not as much assistance in here as I'd hoped...)

Looking on E-bay, I think I would be able to purchase the missing accessories and include the price of doing so in the final asking price? Is that something people usually do?

I really haven't done this before, so I'm quite ignorant as to what is normal and accepted and what is frowned upon behavior.

I'd like to have a Metroplex but I have no interest in having the box, so it me it's worthless.
