yeah I'm scaling back the collection too... Me and my wife don't make as much money as we would like right now (I'm unemployed), and we have a lot of expenses: my driver's license (costs 4k in Norway), $5000 in tax beneficial savings and about $3000 that we owe our parents. Our budget is planned to handle that, so that's okay though. But I am sick and tired of the old used Chesterfield sofa, 60s style coffee table and "bottom of the shelf" IKEA furniture. We want three new sofas and a table to go with them (two for the living room, one for the cinema room), a new TV with a table, a new stereo, a new dining area with at least four chairs, a new bed and a new surround receiver. And we don't want the cheap stuff. This costs money. A lot of money. So I did a check on my collection list to consider what the high-priced year sets would sell for. 1987 to 1992 are the years that have the least amount of fun per cent per gram of plastic and cardboard, so that's what I considered selling. According to my estimation of current market values, the total is... $21966! If I can get even 80 percent of that, I can fill out the list of stuff we need easily, and there's no need to be cheap. $2500 stereo, $1500 surround receiver, $3500 TV, $2000 bed, $5000 sofas, $1500 dining group, $500 sofa table. With $1000 to spare to buy a PS3 and the Nintendo Wii with a few games. I must have been crazy, the choice is easy now that I see it in perspective. Those figures have got to go! I know I will miss them like hell. After all, I did spend years hunting down Guard City, the dinocassettes and all the others. But really. Those figures are just too expensive unless you're rich. Wouldn't you do the same? I will start selling in about a month from now. Serious offers for specific items are welcome by pm. I have everything Japanese from 1987 and onwards, including US mailaways, all MiB except for some '87 headmasters etc and some micromasters.
