What do you think . I want to trade want to know if im being fair
$150-250 is what people have been willing to pay.
Im trying to trade for fansproject explorer and munitioner. no bites yet
$50. Who'd want to pay $$$ when you can get one for $10.
Basically just make a deal you would be happy with regardless what he is worth.
they are nothing alike botcon thrust is totally different and not mass produced
True but a lot of your potential customers already brought that 10 dollar Thrust. Best advice, just stash it away for a couple of years and see what you can get for it in the future.
Right now is NOT the best time to sell Dirge, Thrust, and Thundercracker since they are now in stores. .
I'm probably doing that with my Botcon Thundercracker.
Before the Generations release, if a collector wanted a Classics Thrust they had to pay top dollar to get the Botcon or Henkei version. Now, it's only $10 to add Thrust to your collection. Only collectors who are looking specifically for the Botcon version will be interested.
i got Botcon thrust off ebay last month...$140 shipped.
two months ago...botcon dirge $125 shipped.
And i got them just because i love the seekers and wanted to have these variants also...
I had henkei /gentai dirge and thrust and got rid of them...the funky paint apps on the wings did not do anything for me...
so right now...like others said...box them and play the waiting game...once thrust and dirge are no longer available via stores retail wise...maybe the botcon value will go back up...i am not counting on it though since you can still get BW and armada tf's in mass off ebay...thrust and dirge they made LOTS of i would bet....
I recently sold botcon dirge and thrust for $100. Given the mass release of the characters, I was happy with that.
This and i would say the name of the Vintage Predaking sets as the 2010 reissue is scratching that itch for many .
That was waaaaayyyyyyy BEFORE people knew its coming to "store(s) near you."
I sold one for $200 last week.
I have to be honest, that surprises the shit out of me. You did amazingly well there mate.
I would have said that 99% of potential buyers disappeared as soon as Generations Thrust was released. The same thing will happen for Botcon Thundercracker very soon.
Then you MUST thank Primus for that sale because things like that ain't gonna happen every other day.
Only a handful of Collectors are willing to pay that kind of $$$ for the Botcon version while the remaining will wait out for the TFG version.
I bought one from a local Boardie for $90 last week, and I felt that was a decent price (I am a seeker whore, and think it is the best version of the mold). If you are looking to sell now, I would probably throw it up on ebay and hope for $150-$175 range. As others have said, sitting on it may be the best option right now. Thrust is different enough that there should be a market for it.
To be honest with Botcon Thundercracker, once the new one hits the shelf, unless there is something really funky with the colors, I would probably only go $50-$60 on a Botcon Thundercracker, and I may have to even think in that range, and he is the only seeker version I am missing (foreign or domestic).
I got BC Dirge & Thrust, 100% complete WITH the BC 2007 box, for only $155. Good deal on my part probably.
