Update 4: Finally completed photography of the individual figures. There are literally hundreds of photos to view here. I refreshed the table from the original post as well (new table is at the bottom of this post in place of the original). I did this after discovering that one of the 2 Bespin Guard figures was not represented in the original table and that, while fixing it, I decided to change the sort to match the order of the photo files (1st by movie, 2nd by alphabet). The next and perhaps most daunting element is to establish pricing, which I expect to take several days. I'm hoping to complete it before my shoulder surgery scheduled for Monday. Anyway, if you're interested in specific figures, feel free to reach out, as I continue to compile a want-list for follow-up. Again, thanks for your patience. I'm thrilled to be able to finally show photos as this was what most of you have been waiting eagerly for.

Update 3:
Apologies for my 2-day absence and lack of response. I caught the flu from my toddler and, now over it, my wife appears to be coming down as well. Happy Valentine's Day, LOL! I'm well-short of 100%, but I got out of bed today and that's a start. So I've spent a couple hours going through a mountain of correspondence from you all... Upon the strong suggestion of collectors who think I'm making a huge financial mistake by selling the lot in bulk and the equally strong interest in the community for individual figures, I've decided to sell individually. Please bear with me while I work up pricing and far more detailed pictures. I don't have a lot of free time, so it may take a week or so. If you've already shown interest in specific figures, trust that I've made note. If you haven't already reached out to me and are interested in specific figures, please let me know and I'll add it to the list being compiled. Once I've completed the more massive project, I will post it as a 4th update and respond to you all individually. Sorry to disappoint the dozen or more eager to buy the lot.

Update 2: Okay everyone. Like I stated in my last update, I'd prefer to sell the lot as a whole, stock boxes included. It's 76 carded figures, 1 boxed droid set, and 2 factory stock boxes (1 ESB, 1 ROTJ). I've uploaded pictures to the public folder of my Dropbox account here. The images are 6 figures per and the naming for those images work their way down the list in order. I hope that makes sense.

You can reach me here or at my personal email address (cjkallin1@yahoo.com). It's no doubt obvious to you serious collectors that I'm not one myself. This definitely hasn't been as elegant an outreach as I'd expected it to be. Trust that it's a matter of naiveté and not an intentional breach of etiquette. I look forward to hearing soon from anyone who's seriously interested in the lot as I don't intend to prolong things unnecessarily. Regards.

Update 1: I'm getting a lot of interest very fast, with many people requesting photos, prices, etc. Fair enough. I was a naive about how much interest there would be and what might be asked of me so quickly. I will work on posting pictures over the next day or so, updating this post with a link to view the lot. In the meantime... My preference would be to sell the lot altogether for $10k or better. I've spent days pouring over the figures relative to Mark Bellomo's Ultimate Guide 14th ed. and that seems a reasonable, if not conservative ask.

Original Post: My grandmother collected figures for her 4 grandchildren as the movies came out. I've had them tucked away ever since they were given to me upon leaving home in 1987. The ESB figures are in a factory ESB stock box and the ROTJ in a factory ROTJ stock box.

I'm an at-home dad to a 27mo daughter and strongly considering selling to raise money for family needs. If you are interested in any/all figures, please feel free to message me. I'm happy to answer questions, send pictures of individual figures, etc.

I hate to be a killjoy here, but if you are offering pieces individually then you need to post individual prices as well.

Thanks,
Mike

PM in bound. Keen on the X Wing, if it's not already PM'd. Andy :grin:
Obviously as MM states, prices and pictures would be awfully helpful

I sent a pm and haven't heard anything back...
Myself as well. Not a biggie, but if anyone bought anything, single or the entire lot, Please post here. I would like to know just so I could close the door on this one. Thanks. :)

It says right in the original post $10,000 or better. He wants to take "bids" with people offering at least $10,000. I would buy the lot for $10,000 but that's not enough.....that was the minimum bid. If his "reserve" isn't met he is taking offers on individual figures. Sounds a lot like E-bay.

Since it says $10000 or better it is set up like an auction. At this point this probably would be best being locked down and removed. He can realist when he gets this stuff figured out.

Below is the paragraph stating 10k or better

Update 1: I'm getting a lot of interest very fast, with many people requesting photos, prices, etc. Fair enough. I was a naive about how much interest there would be and what might be asked of me so quickly. I will work on posting pictures over the next day or so, updating this post with a link to view the lot. In the meantime... My preference would be to sell the lot altogether for $10k or better. I've spent days pouring over the figures relative to Mark Bellomo's Ultimate Guide 14th ed. and that seems a reasonable, if not conservative ask.

Bobafrett,

You *CANNOT* offer this as $10K or *better*. You have to set a price or you can say "or best offer" and accept offers lower than $10K. I'm closing this and will ask you to relist following the guidelines I've outlined. If you continue to accept offers higher than asking price, the thread will be closed and your posting abilities removed. We don't take kindly to people circumventing the rules around here and fielding higher offers. If you want to do that, try eBay or another auction site. Additionally, if you are going to sell individually then please refrain from reposting untilyou have specific pricing. Again, individual items will need prices...not price X or better.

Mike
