Default would you trade your tf for money?

If someone offer you money to buy off all your transformers and its pretty reasonable or probably more than it sworth would you sell them your tf collection?

No.

They could make an offer on the tangibles, but not on the years of intangible effort put into the collection. No-one would pay that premium.

to answer you question Deceptic_Optics...

NO...
"Maybe, yes it was a absolute last resort and "if" i considered them to be worth selling."

and I know some of you are going to say i am nuts for saying this:

But, I am also leaning towards "NO" on the million dollars offer thing.
( as stated before, it kind of depends on the situation at the time )..

as, it may seem to be a lot of money "but" if it isn't used wisely it can go very quickly and may cause more problems as well.

For a million I would due to longer term gains (including my collection back).

It would allow me to own a property without the pain of a mortgage and therefore money that once went into rent can go straight into Transformers and that's how I get my collection back.

If I may ask, how did this question come along?
