    I know a few weeks ago I stated I might be selling my TF collection, but first I am going to be sellling my Star Wars figure collection, my question is should I sell as a lot or individually, I have many figures all are mint on card from Power of the Force, Power of the Jedi, Ep 1, Ep 2 and Ep 3....so how should I sell them on ebay?

    I think you'd be surprised, but list them here first. I know I'm always looking for figures I don't have.

    But if you want to list on eBay I'd start off selling them individual. Most people won't fork out the big cash for a single figure out of a lot. Overall you will probably make more. If there are some leftovers, put them together by series.

    I think Codimus has the right idea here. Take the figures that you know will be able to stand on their own (popular characters, "rare", etc.) and sell them by themselves. Put the rest in a lot or lot(s). It could also depend on how quickly you would like to get rid of them...

    Wow... didn't know you were going to come back with such a list..

    A lot of that isn't stuff that I know is extremely sought after. The one that stands out for me is the Preview figure from Ep. 3. The POTF/POTJ stuff sometimes goes for more than you think.

    I'd say put it up in lots and expect to get about 2-5 a figure... maybe

    I was really hoping you'd have a POTF2 Bespin Luke. I'd buy that in a heart beat.

    It's funny, I was getting every figure in the line up until that wave, with Bespin Luke and General Lando....but that wave never showed up in stores here. For some reason, because of that, I totally stopped collecting Star Wars figures, haha.

    None of that stuff is very rare, sometimes see a lot of kids looking for POTF and Episode 1 figures. I have a lot of the same ones you have for sale and I sell them for $5 each at the local toyshows and Conventions. Collecters generally already have what they want so its often kids or parents shopping for kids that will be most interested, but I've found that kids and parents are just as happy to buy loose as in package so $10 per is generally a price they wont pay. You should get more than $2 for them MIBC, $5 is reasonable, don't expect much more than that. Good Luck!
