Value of Classics/Henkei figs?

My advice is eBay em. I was undercutting eBay by 25-30% and still had members complaining that i wasn't letting em go for $10 a figure or less or shpping out of the US for cheap (i charge actual shipping cost rounded up or down to nearest dollar.) Supply and demand. These figures are in high demand with limited supply. You can undercut and still fetch about $30+ for many of the loose Hasbro deluxes. Ultra Magnus i've seen fetch as much as $85. Oh and i'm not talking about auctions. Buy-it-now will sell most figures in under 5 days.

At the very least use eBay to figure out pricing. Advanced search showing completed listings. Can figure out an average that way and then use it to decide how you wanna proceed. Personally, if i have it on eBay and no one has bought it or bid and a forum member offers to buy at my asking price or for an amount near enough to it i don't feel insulted, i'll unlist the item and sell directly, taking eBay out of the process.

It's your call though. Rough estimate i'd say you just listed over $300 worth of figures, easily.

As i was responding, i had Ramjet sell. That's 3 figures today, Ramjet, Mirage and Tankor. $108 for all 3 including shipping and they only spent a day or two listed. EBay takes a 9% cut plus insertion fee. So i collect about $95 total.

Thing is while I would like to get the most value for them but eBay & Paypal are not an option. Had really bad experiences with both of them a few years ago and would really rather get a root canal without anesthesia than use either again...LOL.

I did have a few nibbles for a few of the figures on another board, where my post basically said make me an offer, only to get the typical "how much for x?", so without knowing what they do go for I've no reply to give back. Don't want to say a price that'll scare anyone off.

It varies wildly, is the thing. I've paid $10 apiece on forums, and seen them sell at $30+ (for a deluxe) at the same time. If you accepted Paypal, I'd be sending you an offer for some of it. :P

I could be mistaken, but Seibertron.com rules require use of paypal.

That's news to me, if that's true then I guess I won't be selling any of my figs here then, and I've had a sale list for my older TF's up here for two years now... Luckily other sites don't tell you what form of payment to take/send because Paypal is just pure evil.

Ah...just saw this posted on top of the B/S/T page, it's not a requirement, just a suggestion I guess "It is also recommended that you use a service such as Paypal for your transactions".

Since I don't use Paypal guess I'm still safe.
