    Hey guys I want to get rid of all of this stuff as one big lot, most likely through craigslist. I'm having trouble setting up a price since it is of various old and new lines. It would probably be better to split this into a few different lots, but I would rather just go the easy route. Can you recommend what you feel is a decent pricepoint for this lot? Everything is loose, no instructions, but complete and in good condition unless noted otherwise. Thanks.

    Not sure of a price, but I'm SURE you're leaving a lot of money on the table if you're selling them as a lot on craigslist...

    Try here, first (eBay later). Craigslist is like a flea market or garage sale where a broader segment of people are going to make low offers without really knowing the value of most, if not all, of those figures.

    agree with the previous 2 posts. It probably seems easier to unload all that at once, but you will most likely profit a lot more by selling off in smaller lots or individually. There's at least 4 things there I would buy myself :)

    That's how I'd do it. Put a .99 starting price, 7 days, and you'll make just as money if not more than you will on craigslist. I could see your Classics lot going for decent $.

    What I suggest is find the average price of each figure, add it all up, and then sell it for about 20-30% less than your total. You need to allow for markup to resellers who purchase in bulk.
