Hey everyone, I need some opinions. Two of my really good friends recently sold there collections, both of them got tens of thousands for them. This triggered something in me and my wife that we need to consider. We recently had a kid, we have been getting along fine monetarily. My mother recently had a brain aneurysm and thankfully survived unharmed. But this made us think about long term and savings. She brought up possibly selling my collection like my friends. One of them totally regrets selling it, the other says he feels liberated (kept his BT's though). So to my collection. I never really talk about it much, but to give you background I started college and work at 19 in 1994, I found my old TF collection (over 360 loose items all G1, my dad collected star wars and brought me a TF every time he brought SW figures home). So I began collecting, before ebay and the net blew up and bought case fresh MISB figures for peanuts (G1 cars were $40 MISB). I have pieces that even AFA gives 90's and 95's. My Browning got a 95box from AFA. I have case fresh Grand Max, Overlord, Dezanrus, Soundwave, Star Convoy, Prowl, Bluestreak, Sunstreaker, G1 cars, Headmasters, Targetmasters, G1 and powermaster Optimus, and on and on. Not to mention all the new stuff and my near complete loose collection. (I can provide picture evidence of any piece as long as its not too far back in the storage unit) lol. I have no beast wars anything though. I sold a case fresh Raiden, Starscream, Triggerhappy, Sureshot, Star Saber, Victory saber and one or two others a few years ago. I kind of regret it but don't, it was a small piece of my collection but it got me a car. I look at the empty spaces that were on my wall and it bugged me. One day I wanted to have a insane room that would rival anyones. But priorities change. It would be a fantastic amount of savings for us to have and pretty much end and worries of college for our daughter. I know people on here have separated from their collections, how do you feel about? If you were in my shoes would you do it. I could always save the old fashioned way, which I probably will anyway. What if aliens invade and will only spare the Transformers collectors? I'd be screwed. If I won lotto I'd be kicking myself. Seriously though, I should steal my dads Star Wars collection out of his attic and sell it. By the time he noticed, he'd think he lost it.
