Selling MISB/MOSC/MIB/Loose G1 Transformer Collection. Approx. 900 items

Postby Techlifter » Thu Jun 01, 2017 3:03 pm

Hello there,

I'm interested in selling the bulk of my collection of approximately 900 G1 Transformer toys. This collection includes a few items from G2 and Beast Wars but is predominantly comprised of G1 figures, many of which are MISB/MOC/MIB. The one caveat is I wish to keep my sealed G1 Dinobots and would like to sell the rest of the collection as a whole. I attempted to sell the collection back in 2008 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gssDTrpQS30) but the economic downturn that followed pushed me to pack everything back up and wait until the things recovered. Time to give it another shot.

A couple of rough lists of what's available:
http://perryjoshua.com/Exchange/Boxed-Carded-TFs.txt
http://perryjoshua.com/Exchange/Loose-TFs.txt

I also have about 1,500 photos (~500GB) of most everything*, with pics of the boxes taken from various angles to highlight box condition (tape, flaps, etc) available at the following Dropbox link:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/norrmuncq4o11vi/collection.rar?dl=0

These photos in the compressed file were taken with a digital camera that is pretty low-res by today’s standards, but they should suffice to tell the whole story.

The Important Details:
- I would politely decline $50K
- But I accept the need to be flexible. Let’s talk.
- I will happily pay a prearranged percentage to the first individual who can broker the successful deal. If you have a connection, let’s discuss your terms.
- The buyer(s) must travel out to Arizona to meet, inspect the collection and then arrange for pickup/transport by whatever method they choose and at their own expense. I will not ship anything anywhere.
- I live in Phoenix, Arizona
- I’m selling the collection as a whole and will not part it out under any circumstances.
- Yes, I realize that this limits the potential pool of buyers.
- Yes, I know that I could potentially get more money if I part it out.
- Yep, this is 100% serious.
- I'm ready to do this now.

I guess that's a good place to start. What else would you like to know?

Please contact me directly at: techlifter@perryjoshua.com

*Please ignore the DVD set in the compressed file as that isn’t part of the collection. :o

This is my second post to the seibertron.com forums in almost 10 years and I've made sure the read the posting rules in an attempt to post appropriately. If I've made any formatting or content mistakes, please let me know and I'll correct them asap.

Please be gentle :)

Here are a couple of group shots to get an idea:

A helpful redditor suggested that I contract with an auction house to handle the logistics for something of this scope and they’ve opted to list everything for individual sale, available now and the full list is both in the original post and at J. Levine's:

http://www.jlevines.com/transformer-auction/

For everyone who contacted me about buying this or that figure, there's a live viewing of the whole collection for locals on Friday, July 21st from 10am-4pm but the auction is online, open to everyone and the soft close will be Sunday, July 23rd @ 6am

Thanks again, all!

Originally, I had posted the collection for sale as a single purchase because I didn’t have the time and manpower to try to part everything out. A helpful redditor suggested that I contract with an auction house to handle the logistics for something of this scope and they’ve opted to list everything for individual sale, available now and the full list is both in the original post and at J. Levine's:

No problem and thank you for the correction! Looks like I got a bit overzealous and I'll avoid that in the future. :)
