    I have several MIB G1s and a few rare G1s (vsx set and a few others), what I am looking for is a really nice centerpiece (already have the Maxes) that is really rare, but the catch is I want something that will keep its value. I have been collecting since 84 and have about 800 TFs and have never sold a TF, but I am looking for a nice piece that will hold its value just incase of an emergency, a piece that will always be in demand. Any suggestions? I’m looking to spend about $500. Is it possible to get complete BWs set for that price, never really checked out BW? I am also doing this with Hot wheels and Comics. I just got a Men #1 and I’m getting it graded

    Victory Saber and Liokaiser hold their value well...

    I have no idea... I just know that those tend to hold their value well.

    artfire, shuffler, unused giftsets, graded misb megs-ops, lucky draws, etc. depends on what you want. as far as getting a complete set of beastwars for 500 it might happen loose but forget about misb/mosc.

    right now artfire and shuffler would sell the fastest, and as far as price goes on the guys, they would fetch a pretty penny. artfire=$1000+, shuffler=$500+

    Liokaiser is a solid investment, but the gold plastic on Killbison is a potential risk.

    Even if the seller is an honest one , they may now know how to check for crumbled plastic....and even if you do get one without crumbled plastic, there's no guarantee it will stay that way.

    Artfire may not be that great of a candidate- remember, he's on the "short list" should reissues ever pick up again.

    If interested in some Beast Wars, I have some of the rarer characters, like Tigatron and the combiners for sale. I also have some MISB ones that I may consider parting with.
