hey smart guy, why didnt you direct the op to this when this topic first started? then we couldve avoided pages of useless conversation. your like a guy bringing birthday gifts to a funeral.
*EDIT* well they have a comprehensive character and parts list and original cost, but not the current value... so stfu when you come in here with your snarky attitude....
Oops... I didn't realize it was your time of the month
Anyhow... I'll explain it you step by step, cause you seem to be real slow on the uptake.
1. Look up figure on Shmax.com (for example, C-01 Henkei Convoy, the first figure on OP's list)
2. Scroll down, PAST the picturs of the figure and the parts.
3. Gawk at the first graph, showing the results of recent e-Bay sales
. Green points: sealed figures. Red points: loose figures. Green line: trend line for e-Bay price of sealed boxes (evidently between $90 and $125). Red line: trend line for loose figures coming down to around $80 mark, going down just a bit).
4. Gawk at the second graph. These are the prices Shmax members paid
for their Henkei Convoy figure, and probably include forum buys, fleamarket finds and what not. This shows you: MISB: ~$70. Opened figures: ~$35.
I'd say that the Shmax graphs contain enough price points to provide a very accurate estimate of current and up-to-date values. They show you both a trend-line for price, or else the most recent prices paid for a figure. Sure, there's always going to be sales missed in these graphs, some people luck out on the price they pay, some people do not mark their paid value correctly or mark an open figure as sealed, but those mistakes usually only provide outliers which can easily be disregarded.
