    Hi all,


    I am looking to part with my spare Fort Max. I am wondering though, what is the best way to sell him off? Together as a whole, or piece by piece? The only issue I see with pieces is that I may get stuck with the empty body. Any suggestions?


    Thanks,
    Fred

    Piece by piece will get you most cash. But, like you said, you will probably be stuck with the body. Selling it all at once will bring a little less cash, but leave you stuck with nothing. Or you could just give it to me...

    I'd wager most would just want to buy
    it complete in one go.

    As for how to get the best price......
    if you eBay it, you can stick a higher than average buy it now on it, with it linked to an 'Imediate Payment required' through Paypal so that the buyer has to pay you before the auction will actually be closed.

    I don't even know what kind of price to ask for him. he is complete...he is in excellent shape. THe only issue he has is that there is a touch of yellow on his right hip.

    Sell it complete on ebay. Or check with Zap Dragon. I think he's looking for one.

    ditto

    Would rather sell him as a whole to avoid all the little extra hassles and fees. Just get one big lump of change and be done with it.

    I like Liokaiser's idea. There's always people here that would pay just as much as you would ebaying it, maybe more.

    lol...I gotta sell I need the cash and since I have a 2nd one sitting in a box I have been just looking at the other one thinking I could use the cash from that, not the dust lol. I was lucky as a kid that my parents and grandparents didn't communicate well one year from Xmas and wound up with two.

    Ebay:
    Check some recently ended ebay auctions and compare the condition of yours to the condition of those in the auctions. Come up with an acceptable price and post pictures in the Junkion. You'll save the ebay fees and help out a fellow collector.

    Definitely sell complete if you have everything. It's a lot less hassle. Let the buyer worry about buying doubling up on some parts.

    And do it before TakaraTomy starts up reissues again!

    Ebay:
    just set it up the same way you set this thread up, saying that your looking to sell Maximus for X amount and go from there. Oh, and if its totaly complete, o for about $450 to $500, I got a better one than I had from Zap Dragon, and he sold it to me for $400, but I gave him an extra 100 for waitin on me for a long while.

    a complete one, w/ box, foams, all stickers etc goes for around $800 on avg on ebay. just the toy complete, ya could get around $550 for him on ebay probably.
