Vintage Transformers Collection Draws 6 Digits

Posted 30 Jul 2007 at 03:25 UTC by Rog-a-matic Share This

An Ebay auction for a giant collection of Transformers stands at $100K. Included in this incredible batch of mint, still-in-box, robots are approximately 275 Transformers and Transformer licensed products collected by the late Anthony Lindgren as he recovered from a motorcycle accident back in the Mid-80s. 101 Autobots, 81 Decepticons, the highly sought-after Transformers Toothbrush, and my personal favorite, Transformers Shrinky Dinks! The bidding battle will end on Aug 1 at 12:33 PDT, unless someone clicks the $1M Buy-It-Now button.

Looks like some bidders were TERMINATED from this auction and now the current bid is $92k.

$335 per item, on average. I had no idea these were worth this much, if the high bid is legit.

There's still an hour or so left. I wonder what the reserve is.
