I have the complete collection of original Robotech RPG books, none of the newer stuff (see list below). I bought them all, new. Never used them. Books are pretty much perfect. They've been in storage for years and I've been slowly getting rid of things that I haven't touched in years and got honest with myself...probably never will.

○ Ghost Ship
○ Invid Invasion
○ Lancer’s Rockers
○ Macross
○ New World Order
○ RDF Accelerated Training Program
○ RDF Manual
○ REF Field Guide
○ Robotech the RPG
○ Southern Cross
○ Strike Force
○ The Return of the Monsters
○ The Sentinels
○ Zentraedi
○ Zentraedi Breakout

I won't break it up, will only sell as the complete library. And I'm in no rush so it's not a fire sale. What is that worth these days?

The "1st Edition" Robotech RPG's books are fairly common items on eBay, and the typical asking price is often comparable or slightly less than what they cost new in the 80's (MSRP+tax)... about $10-12 US per volume. There have been a few people trying to flip them for more, but with a conspicuous lack of success if they go much above $15 a volume.

So... if they're all in Mint or Near Mint condition, maybe $225 for the lot. I wouldn't expect a lot of interest in an all or nothing listing though, since most of the remaining Robotech fandom already has the books (and/or illegal PDF bootlegs of same).

Yeah there are only 3 or 4 books I'd be willing to buy off of you. But I wouldn't pay more than 10 a book plus shipping.

Comment: Being a moderator doesn't mean I speak for Palladium Books. It just makes me the lifeguard at their pool.
Mostly depends if you are able to sell to a collector or a player.

A player is probably looking for a back up copy for books they already have o to fill the gaps in the library. You'll be doing less than cover (which wasn't that big on those books to begin with).

If you are able to ind a collector, and the condition is good enough, you might just snag some decent coin. I'd suggest looking up collections on EBay to see how they do.
