    Animated has a very low secondary market value. I would say 300 is a bit of a stretch.

    250-300 sounds right if you price the figures out at 10 a piece.

    If you decide to piece it out, I'll take that Samurai Prowl. It's the only deluxe I'm missing.

    I personal think your asking way to much for your collection, just bought a collection with most of those toys in it and i only paid 160 for it, but it was also a local buy

    i honestly don't think it's too much considering how much you will pay for shipping.

    all I am really trying to do is get enough money to buy a ROTF Bruticus and the FP add-ons that I am getting from a fellow member. All I need is like 200.00 or so the extra 50 is just for s&h with delievery and a couple of extra bucks.

    Hmmmm... You may not be asking for too much but understand that $300 is a lot to let go of at one time. Also, Animated isn't hot right now. Everyone and their moms are selling off their Animated collections. That and everyone is trying to buy Classics..

    If I hadn't yet begun collecting, I would have strongly considered $300 for that collection.

    Maybe you should make 4 smaller lots from this big one.

    Hey OP, I've been lookign at some of your threads at your wants, and, I gotta' ask, are you sure this is what you wanna' do?

    It looks like you're looking to sell off more than 10 DECENT figures to have money to score like ONE or two that you want right now?

    Seller's regret sucks man, and, unless you're at that "these things are garbage" point, then I'd really consider what you're doing long term.

    the problem is all the collectors want specific toys, not a ton of ones they already have, and anyone who is just starting a collection probably isnt fan enough yet to drop 300 bucks in one go.

    I would email the BBTS vintage department since you are already willing to pay shipping. You can choose store credit (you will get more) or cash. They have the FP limbs in stock too.

    Not really. Imagine being able to sell only one or two figures and the rest being dudded out. Piecing out works for early collections such as G1 but not anything new like animated.

    I hear ya and I thought about that and I do have doubles of some of my favorites so I wont have total regret. But I was lucky I got enough for them to get what I want now I just waiting to get a couple of PM's returned.
