View Full Version : Unbelievable Trade
03-26-2012, 03:38 PM
I had someone message me on Ebay about needing 2 parts off a spare TMNT Technodrome I had for sale. They offered a trade for the parts, I looked at what he had for trade and needed nothing. I asked if he had any vintage GI Joes for sale, he said he did, but knew nothing about them. He emailed me several pictures of common figures and vehicles until the last picture. In the picture was a version D Steel Brigade, silver logo Cobra Soldier, and Starduster version A. I told him I was interested in the Steel Brigade, Starduster, and Cobra Soldier figures. He offered to send all 3 to me for the 2 TMNT Technodrome parts which were a small door that goes to the base and a small black platform, valued at about $5. I was highly skeptical if he would actually send the items, so I took the gamble and he actually sent them! Posted is a video, just thought I'd share the major score I got!

Very Nice Score!!

Cool. The other guy is happy too so it sounds like a win-win.

Its always funny to me how much something is worth to someone else than to you. Those figures are worth a lot to you, but to the TMNT guy looking to complete his Technodrome I am sure they were worth the trade...Very cool.

The guy admits to knowing nothing about Joes. Poor guy didn't get equal value.
Good haul on your end.

Wow. I'd wager he could have gotten a 100% complete technodrome for those figures.
