Questions about Selling Sets

Postby laker9903 » Tue Nov 19, 2013 10:04 am

I haven't been to the site in a long time, and I just fell out of collecting due to new interests. I have a ton of Star Wars sets that date back to the beginning (my first was Luke's Land Speeder), and I'm thinking about selling off the collection. All of them are open, have been built, displayed in a clean home, and have their manuals. Right now they are just in boxes, and waiting for somebody else to enjoy them.

My questions to everybody then are:
How is the best way to sell open sets?
How do you price them?
Is it all searching on eBay?

Also:

Does anybody just want to take them all off of my hands in one shot? :)

Thanks for your feedback.

I think the best way to price is just averaging the prices you see on eBay.
But there's also bricklink.com to use as a good reference.

And I'd be interested in buying some stuff that you have if you can give me a list of what you got that would be great. Or post some pics.

The quickest way would be to just list everything, and sell it to the first person to send you a price. ;)

When I did something similar a while back, I basically took the lowest bricklink price, and knocked off a few bucks for a 'fbtb discount'. Any sets which that process produced a price I wasn't happy with, I just didn't offer for sale. :)

That's probably what I will end up doing. For now, this is the list of what I have. I haven't sat down to fully reconstruct everything yet. I may do it on an interest basis. If someone is interested, I'll see about getting the whole thing assembled. Right now I don't have the time to get them all together. Although, I should probably start a separate thread.
