BJK,

Yeah, I am a total Transformer geek. The new ones are alot harder to tranform. I got out my original Optimus Prime and the new one...my old one was alot easier. That and they messed with O.P. He used to be a cab over tractor (Semi)...how he's not. All I gots to say is don't mess with a good thing!!

Brian

Too bad you took them out of the box.........they won't sell for thousands of dollars on ebay 3 decades from now. \:\)

But I know that's no why you bought them. I'm pleased to know that Bryan found some happiness with some retroactive toys.

Mark,

I think he was talking to me. No worries.

As far as the value of unopened Transformers from the '80's, they're not QUITE worth thousands of dollars. Here is a professionally graded Optimus Prime that sold for $1,800, and here is a professionally graded Megatron that also sold for $1,800.

If your not interested in spending a couple hundred dollars to get it professionally graded, this is a more realistic expectation.

Bryan

Bryan? Do you find yourself actually being HAPPY when you get these things out and just hold them? I could appreciate the memories of childhood that they bring back, but..........I don't think they would do anything for me except to make cool conversation pieces. Hell, I don't know.
