    Hey all, I'm thinking of making some space by getting rid of some extras...since I live in sweden I'd ideally like to sell it as a lot, but I wanna know what you think - what would be the best way to sell this off (again, I live in sweden) and how much do you reckon I could get for it?

    That's a huge lot! I'm really not an expert on pricing, but if you want to sell them as a lot you might want to contact a vendor like BBTS and see if they want to take them. I know it depends on the freight charges, but many figures in your list are in high demand. Good luck.

    Selling stuff international is a pain. I can't even sell a Voyager to someone outside Australia - people don't want to pay $30+ on a postage, I wonder why :lol

    Hmm... I can't imagine with such a large amount that you would have very many avenues. SydneyY has a good idea, BBTS would probably buy them all. I think what they do, though, is you ship it to them. Then they appraise it and give their offer. One offer is cash, the other is store credit. I do think that they'll give you a rough estimate beforehand, though. Another suggestion would be to break them up into like groups and auction them. You'd be shipping more packages that way, but I imagine you would get a higher return going that route.

    Your chances of finding an individual collector willing to take all of that off your hands at a fair price are slim to none. You can always break it up into groups, but remember that people tend to expect a discount or a deal when buying things in lumps.

    If time isn't an issue then I would eBay them one by one, otherwise contacting a vendor is a decent idea. Why not try Kapow? They're based in the UK, so shipping would be cheaper than to the US.

    Is your goal to maximize profit or clear up space? Profit means selling individually or in small lots. Space means selling all at once but be prepared to take a hit on selling price and/or shipping.
