    I think that's a decent price (perhaps on the higher end), but still a decent price.

    Possible...it just seems a bit excessive to me. See how the auction ends...

    I know if it were me I'd sell a lot of this stuff off. I wouldn't offer a cent over $10,000.

    For anyone wondering, he's selling all of that for about $50 a piece.

    Considering that MANY of the pieces are worth more than that, that's why I think the price is justifiable.

    I saw this earlier and I was thinking it would be around 12-15k, just skimming through the list though. Honestly though it could actually be worth close to 25k. I have found myself purchasing items that when bought individually seem 'reasonable' but all in all when you stand back and count the pennies spent, the total can add up really fast. I mean, I've spent just over 1k in a month for 15 items in my ebay account and trust me if they were on sale as a lot I would not buy it, simply because that's a lot of money at once for me to spend. My point is just because it looks like an insane amount of money for toys, which it is, he has a LOT of figures listed there and I wouldn't be surprised if it's worth that much too.

    It's the normal cliche of EBAY.... People want a fortune for what they are selling and want to pay next to nothing for what they want to buy....... and such is life!

    price seem to be at least in the realm of fair, that said i doubt he will get an offer he will take on it as a one huge lot, he would have had better luck dividing it in to 10 lots or so.

    Not to mention id want an exact quote for the shipping as $1,000 seems excessive even for all that he is selling.

    I think the price is decent too. A ton of those figures would be an investment purchase for later sales.

    If I had 25K to actually buy that, I would just fly to him to check the goods out in person.

    If I owned a toy store or hobby shop I would think the same.

    Great answer. I could pay for a new car with that type of cash.

    yeah I'd have to say it is somewhat reasonable since everything is sealed- you could start up a pretty good online shop with this stuff. Basically everything hasbro has released in the last 8 years + takara masterpieces etc. all the HA's, leaders, MPs, animated collection, alternators, classics, titanium, crossovers, RID. That's alot of stuff. Now if I was planning on buying it, I'd try and lowball lol and see where I could get (I bet he would take $20K + free shipping)

    I think it's a good price for a collector but a reseller wouldn't pay nearly that much. The issue is that a collector would probably own most of that stuff already. He'd do much better splitting them up into smaller lots to open up his market.
