    Man that's some cold collecting... out of interest was it pretty much 100% resale market where you bought the FT stuff? I'm interested as we were fairly similar in timing, I think I started going all-in around late 2018. I think the most I paid for a figure was prob $700 but I don't really regret it, I love my collection and so do my kids but I do agree with the playability bit. I actually do let them play with the figures a bit, I just hold my breath the entire time!

    For that reason I'm getting into the Diaclone Reboot line - looks like insane playability and "discovery" for my boys and me, from ages 5 to 41! But I'm also doing the same resale catch up/late tax.

    I guess if you are in no hurry to sell just leave this post up and add to ebay then forget about it. Short of a reissue you're not going to lose value.

    Good luck and enjoy!

    I came in even later than you did; I bought my first figure, CW Devastator, May of last year. I messed around with a couple of KOs before quickly realizing how poor quality they were, before really starting in earnest during the fall. I bought nearly all the early figures on eBay (paying some terrible markups on hard to find items), then started branching out from there. I also cycled through several copies of figures, attempting to upgrade in quality (for example, I have owned about 6 or 7 Stomps). But no regrets at all, I enjoyed collecting immensely, and still do to a certain extent. I do let my kids mess around with some of them too, and they’ve broken a few (I’m not reselling those, just so we’re clear!) but it just comes with the territory. I may look into those diaclone reboots!

    Yeah, I am in no rush and it’s not a forced liquidation or anything. If they don’t sell and I have to keep them, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. I have also met some truly good and just plain interesting people via selling as well, which is always great. Thanks, and same to you!

    Hey Epykk, big fan! Unfortunately, I have reconsidered selling my X Dinos for now. I’m going to update my listing to only list figures that are definitely for sale, as the “on the fence” portion only seems to wind up in confusion for everyone involved. If interested, drop me a pm, as I may be able to give you a lead on another FT-08X though. Thanks!

    Sure, if you know of another that’s not overly expensive, I’m interested.

    Thank you!

    I guess this is a monthly bump. List getting shorter, still deciding on what should go next.
