EDIT: Thread closed until after the holidays. If you see something you like, feel free to PM me and claim it. I just may not get back to you right away.


I'm going to be listing much more of my collection for sale after the holidays, this is just a tiny sample, but I thought some of you may be looking for Christmas gifts for your kids, or for other collectors, and so I've taken pictures of a few things I have that are packaged and like-new. They're mostly exclusives and rarer things for now. More details are at the end of the post.

RotS Puzz3D Anakin's Jedi Starfighter, sealed in shrinkwrap - $25

RotS AMT/ERTL Corporate Alliance Droid plastic model kit, sealed in shrinkwrap - $20

GH Royal Guard & Imperial Gunner - $15

http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/m596/starwax137/009.jpg

Attacktix Series 5 Starter Set - $50? I couldn't find another one of these anywhere online, so I have no idea about value. It's clearly hard to find though; if my memory isn't failing me, Series 5 never made it to stores, so this could be the crown jewel of any Attacktix collection.

I'll be leaving this post up for about a week, and during that time I will be checking my PMs multiple times daily and should be able to ship all items within 24 hours of receiving payment. After that though, I will close the thread until after the holidays so I can focus on enjoying Christmas with my family.

I will be continuously adding to this list as I have time, so if you are buying something and have some kind of want list, feel free to let me know and I may have something else you're looking for and be able to save you a few bucks by shipping them together.

Prices do not include shipping. I'm happy to open packaged items to reduce costs if you so desire. I accept PayPal sent as 'gift', or if you would rather send cash or a money order, that works too. I have feedback here, a link to which is in my signature, as well as on several other sites, all under the same username and all of it positive.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to PM me. Or if you think a price is high, feel free to make an offer. The worst I can say is no, right? :)

No offense but your R5-KT's are way off the mark for the current market.
STAR WARS R2-KT 501ST MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION ACTION FIGURE MINT (653569272731) | eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/STAR-WARS-R2-KT-501ST-MAKE-A-WISH-FOUNDATION-ACTION-FIGURE-MINT-/180774917528?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a17065598#ht_500wt_949)I know business is business but it kind of leaves a bad taste in my mouth to see a charity item being listed at a scalper price.

Just want you let you know your price if off by a good 40 to 50 bucks.

Well, considering that's a BuyItNow, it's not necessarily a reflection of the current market. Here's one that sold just a couple days ago, for quite a bit more:
Star Wars R2-D2 Astromech R2-KT Make-A-Wish Foundation 501st Exclusive Comic Con | eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-R2-D2-Astromech-R2-KT-Make-A-Wish-Foundation-501st-Exclusive-Comic-Con-/140658248477?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20bfe28b1d)

I actually did take the time to look up most of these things and I feel like my prices are fair. And like I said, if you disagree, offer less. I might take it.

You have some nice stuff, but those R2-KT's are the only things that really caught my eye on your list. However, I do agree that they're pretty pricey... And that $70 Buy-It-Now one that sold recently is a fluke. You said it yourself, BuyItNow isn't a reflection of the current market. All of the other auctions give a pretty good idea of the actual market value. The next highest one that sold recently only went for $40. The average seems to be about $30... That would probably be my best, and most realistic, offer to you.

Guys, the rules clearly state that no one is to post non-transactional messages in another members for sale thread. If you have issue with the pricing on any item, it always needs to be sent as a PM...period.

Guys, the rules clearly state that no one is to post non-transactional messages in another members for sale thread. If you have issue with the pricing on any item, it always needs to be sent as a PM...period.
But the rules also clearly state this:

- Prices must indicate no higher than fair market value. Moderators will use their judgment to decide whether or not the prices are fair. For items currently at retail stores, the prices must be no higher than their normal retail cost. NO SCALPING OF CURRENT ITEMS WILL BE PERMITTED. If you paid more than retail for the item, you must state in your post that you did so. For items more than one year old, some leeway in price will be permitted, subject again to the discretion of the moderators.

And this sale post clearly breaks that rule as AdmiralThreepio and I expressed. I do have a problem with his asking price but according the to forum rules you should too. We were not attacking the seller at all and we should not be treated that way. Both of us were just expressing that his price was way off, we didn't mention that it was against Rebelscum's rules but I knew at the time of posting that it was since I have seen others get an infraction for it. Also there has been a plethora of non-transactional posts all over this forum. If rules are going to be enforced they can't be pick and chose. Either everyone gets punished for breaking it or no one does.

Also in regards to AdmiralThreepio's post, he simply backed up what I said but also made an offer price, which the seller welcomed in his second post.

This issue isn't as black and white as it is seeming to be taken. Allow me to note that the only reason I am posting this apposing to sending it to you in a PM is you do not acknowledge my other message and frankly this is an issue I don't want to see ignored.

I was almost tempted not to do it just because of the way you've reacted, but I did look more closely at those completed auctions, and I have lowered my price on that item.

I did actually type up a rather long and sarcastic response to your PM, but thought better of it and didn't hit send. I just don't understand why you're involving yourself in this at all, since you don't seem to have any interest in actually buying the figure, at any price.

Thanks for bumping my thread for me though.

How did I react so poorly? I was merely informing you that your price was off. And it was actually breaking forum rules. Based on what you have said your price was based off of one auction you saw on eBay, which you only took a glance at. My comment about scalper prices was not directed at you and does not apply to you.

My message was not snarky, I was merely saying what I would have said if I was told not to post but rather send you a PM about it. I am involving myself with this because I actually am interested in picking up the item sometime and seeing it at such a high price bothered me. When have I ever expressed I was not interested in the item at any price? I just personally wouldn't spend more than 20 for one.

By all means you are welcome, it doesn't matter to me. My issue isn't with you right now. All your other prices were on the spot and I never thought you were trying to scalp it. Just misinformed.

Next time I won't say anything to anyone about it and they will have an item listed beyond market value and one day get an infraction for it. As I said, it's not like I was attacking you or your integrity, and to quote myself, "Just want you let you know your price if off by a good 40 to 50 bucks."

And that is precisely all I wanted to do. But due to all that has happened outside of you it has escalated to more than just informing someone on a fair price.

GD: Perhaps I read meaning into your comments that you did not intend. If I have offended you, I apologize.

Everyone else: I've updated my list. And I'm only going to leave this up for another day or so, before taking a break until after the holidays, so be sure and let me know right away if you want something so I can get it in the mail!
