    1. What kind of stuff does the Vintage department buy? I know the site says some stuff, but it isn't too specific about newer stuff and/or Japan exclusive figures.

    2. How long does it take them to reply to emails sent?

    Thanks

    1. No idea, I'd just snap pictures and email 'em in and see if they're interested.

    2. Usually 1-2 days.

    Ebay:
    You will get more for your stuff on eBay. Places like BBTS always low-ball the hell out of you, because they need to be able to make a profit off of your stuff.

    I refuse to deal with all the shitheads on ebay. I'd rather get rid of it all in one shot, too.

    They'll buy most anything if it's still sealed. Opened they're not super fussy, but you probably won't be selling them anything as recent as Cybertron figures if they're opened. At least, not for anything resembling money.

    I've sold to them before. While you do make less than you would on eBay, you also save a HELL of a lot of headaches. Give them valid descriptions and/or pictures of what you've got, they'll give you a good reply within a couple days depending on how long your list is. I think they actually go through the full list and whatever descriptions you've given them pretty thoroughly while coming up with an offer for you, so it may take more than one day if you've got a lot of things to sell them.

    A few more questions...

    Who pays shipping to get the stuff to them?

    Can store credit be used to pay shipping on an order? (8 bucks to ship a Revoltech, my ass... I sent one for less than 5 a few weeks ago)

    Ebay:
    YouTube:
    Have you tried offering them here? I would only use BBTS as a last resort.

    EDIT: N/M, I'm assuming it's the stuff in your F/S thread.

    Give or take a few things, pretty much. I've had a few offers here and there but nothing has made it past "shipping will be..."

    Considering I had a sale thread before this one, I think I'm going on 2 months or so to get rid of this stuff... I need the space more than anything... If anyone asks for it here before BBTS sends me their offer, I won't tell them no (unless it's something ridiculous).

    Nothing says I'm going to sell to BBTS for sure...

    You pay shipping to them, store credit is a revolving credit that can be applied to anything the store charges you for, including shipping on items they will be sending to you.
