    Hey everyone, I've got an extra Classics Wheeljack that I'm looking to get rid of fast. This will be the last one I'm doing for the foreseeable future, and it's set to be complete in a day or two.

    It will be identical to the following:

    I'd like to sell to a member here first before going to ebay, and like I said I'm looking for a quick sale.

    Anyway, I'd like to get $175, but I'll consider reasonable offers. Not really looking for anything in trade unless you happen to have any of the following:
    Alternity Black Convoy
    MG 1/100 Sinanju (Gundam Kit)
    Macross Frontier VF100's series
    Yamato's VF-1 Ver 2's

    I strongly prefer paypal, but will accept Money Orders. I'm in the US and will ship internationally. If I get no intertested buyers by Saturday evening, off to ebay it goes.

    Thanks
    Jarrod

    Interested but $175 seems to be an INCREDIBLY steep price for this guy.

    Can you justify it for me?

    Well, this would the 6th one I've sold for about this price, up to $250. I've sold a few of them through commisions here on the boards, and the rest thru ebay. I know I can get over $200 from ebay, but thought I'd try here first.

    Ebay:
    $175 is not "INCREDIBLY steep" for this custom. He put a lot of hard work into it--more than likely hours upon hours--and in my honest opinion, I'd never sell any deluxe sized custom that I've worked on for hours, weeks, or whatever, for under $150. For the level of detail and work in this, I'd say it could get around $300 or so on ebay, so he's giving fellow forum members a chance to own something cool for a large price cut.

    Good luck on the sale, Jarrod! If I had the extra cash, I'd snag it from you.

    It kills me that people don't take into consideration how long it takes to make a custom, the hours involved, the labor. It might have been a 12.00 figure before but more than worthy of the price you are asking now. People just see a deluxe figure for the price and don't consider the time and work involved. If my car didn't just sink me for repairs I'd be all over this. Good luck with it!

    Thanks for the support guys! It really is all about the time and effort. And just for the record, the last three went for $225, $255 and $250 on ebay. Like I said earlier tho, my goal was to give some board members a shot at a lower price, but still not sell my self short

    Yes they do, if you follow the link above you'll see my post from Radicons with many more pics and a more detailed description.
