    Hi there :) 

    I am considering getting a sealed Sky Garry to sell off to cover my import cost, though I will most likely to do international trade, which means a high shipping charge.

    So how much is a reasonable price for one including shipping? If it seems to be worthwhile I will get one. Your input will help me greatly to support my addiction, thank you :D

    Ebay:
    Around $350 shipped to the US from Asia is "normal" on eBay. Can be had for less if you make a deal with the same sellers outside of eBay. Make sure it's a dealer who you know you can trust if you make a deal with an eBay seller on the side. I would imagine the shipping to Austrailia would be less.

    If I go ahead I'll be getting one from a dealer in Japan and I have bought from them before.
    Actually I was going to get some Minicons from them and noticed they had Sky Garry, as well as Six Liner giftset. Thought someone might want one if the price is OK.
    Sounds like I can get a good enough deal to go ahead (anyone wants a Sky Garry? ;) )

    Thank you very much for your post. I appreciate it.

    There are a LOT of them floating around right now it seems. I just made a deal with an ebay seller for well under $300 for a case fresh looking one. I have seen so many I am starting to wonder if a knockoff like the Dia-Atlus popped out.

    AFAIK some deadstock turned up recently in a small town toyshop in Japan. The dealer I mentioned seems to have at least 5 Sky Garrys.

    I got a shipping box the other day, and I noticed it was turned inside out, to my surprise it was a case box for the skygarries, so yes apparently some old stock was found. it was the seller ksg, so it made sense that he had so many for sale.

    skygarry used to command a hefty price tag. I love to see this guy make his way into the comics.

    8 ~ 10? Wow. Adding the ones other sellers have, how many deadstock could there be? I better grab one before the price goes up again, eh.

    And yeah the dealer has Sixliner they dug out from somewhere. I am thinking of getting one for myself, because I like trains and they look damn pretty packed all together. I am not into older TFs though. Anyone wants me to see if they have more than 1?

    Ebay:
    Something else to be cautious of...there have been a TON of MIB, but still sealed in the bubble, with accessories sealed, Jazz coming out of Asia the past couple weeks. Almost as many as the old stock Sky Garry. This has me really suspicious. So be careful if you pick up one of these.
