Welcome to the site!
I get this a lot, and people don't understand why
retailers offer what they do. The simple answer is thus: they're not
collectors - they sell to
collectors and thus walk the fine line of offering enough money that it will seem like a good deal to those who are willing to dump their figs without worry about making money back and then turning that figure around for profit, I suspect in the 33%-50% margin. Judging by the activity on BBTS's Vintage page, it works fairly well fairly often. These are businesses and they have to make a profit.
However if you want to make more money by selling to collectors, you're going to have to put in the effort to do so. I'd suggest breaking the figures into lots and try selling them like that. You can post pictures and a list with your details here
Good luck to you!
