Question about toy packaging, displays, etc... worth trying to sell...?

Postby Rogue. » Tue Mar 20, 2007 7:05 am

Alright, here's a question for everyone. I'm sure this has been asked in the past, but hear me out. Would any of the following boxes & packages be worth trying to sell off? I'm not expecting much money, but I figured someone out there might be interested in these for display or custom purposes. Remember... this is just the packaging... I threw out the twisty ties and rubber bands kind of stuff, but have all the inner cardboard pieces, clamshells, etc. And I know this isn't Carbombya, I'm not trying to sell these in this section. Just asking advice ;)

Star Wars:

VOTC Stormtrooper, Han Solo
VTSC (all)
Clone Attack on Coruscant battlepack (two)
Commemorative Episode III DVD Collection, 3 of 3 (the Combat Engineer styled Clones three-pack)
TAC four-figure tin sets (Ep4, 5, 6, Cantina)

Other things:

Marvel Studios 12" X2 Wolverine (plastic boxed)
Wal-Mart exclusive Transformers Landfill (boxed set)


I figure that all of the tins would have to be "worth" something, compared to the rest.

I also have some cardboard store displays, like some Star Wars Episode 3 PDQs (trays) that held figures. I was going to keep them for my own stuff, but I'm in need of room so a lot of stuff like this has to go. I also have a GI Joe display for the single-carded Spytroops figures that came with a CD-ROM. They were in a cardboard sidekick type box (usually hung on the end of an aisle), but shipped out with a cardboard stand with signage. (See it here.) That way the sidekicks could stand on their own on the floor. I rescued it from being recycled because I figured someone might want it for a display ;) Unfortunately I only got one of the sidekicks. It originally came with two. I did manage to get the original shipping box, though.

I think it depends on if anybody wants to buy them

To most its garbage to others something like the VOTC package (if still in good condition) some may want them for there other figures

The store displays may bring some money if you could post something like this on a Star Wars board or ebay

I would think that the store display would sell fairly easily. I'd also think you'd be better off putting all that stuff up on eBay instead of posting a thread in carbombya that would most likely die.
