FS Imperial flagship made up 99.9% complete just bottom half of one MINIFIGURE missing

CoyotelilyCoyotelily Member Posts: 661
In order to fund her Simpsons house my best friend wants to sell her imperial flagship, it's made up but has one part missing, the bottom half of the female minifigure. There is no box but the instructions are all there.
We are not really sure what to ask for it but I did say bricksetters are pretty fair so let's just put it out there, for serious offers.
Collection is the best option and we live in North Yorkshire - could deliver or meet up somewhere not too far away.

    I urge any other bricksetter to give his or her second, third, fourth and so on opinion on this, because I am a Lego fan / collector but I have thus far never sold any of my own Lego, only bought more of it.

    But here is my two cents....

    Check out and ebay, that will give you and estimate:
    Check out the link, under the tab 'ebay' and you will see that there is a set (Lego 10210 Imperial Flagship new & factory sealed) on offer to be auctioned, no one has placed a bid, and the starting bid is €399,--
    Check out other auctions too on Ebay. An extra note! Asking prices on ebay can be very deceptive.

    Since you state that your friend build hers, and is missing a piece, it is going to be worth less. Does she still have the box? No! And the instructions? Yes! Has it been played with, has it only been build once, and only put on display? Has it been kept out of direct sunlight, to prevent or minimize decolourization, while on display. Buyers sometimes also state if this was the case, that it was only kept in a pet and smoke free house. So the bricks can be expected to be untainted: by nicotine and tar; hairs; cat-pee and what not. Al these factors may determine how much or little it is 'second hand' / 'used' still worth. When it is in a condition 'as good as new' you will be able to ask and get more for it, then when the bricks are chipped, faded prints, have tooth marks, and other signs or wear and tear, or are covered in dust or just dirty.

    I don't know if I am too optimistic, but if your friends ship is in good condition, she may very well get what she paid for it when she bought it new, maybe even more, or maybe a little less considering one minifig piece is missing, and there is no box.

    I hope for you other bricksetters will comment too.

    Good luck with the sale, and happy brick-times with your future Simpsons Lego purchase.

    Anything around $300 shipped is fair. Don't let it go for less than $270, as that missing piece can be purchased.

    If it were me, I would make the effort to buy the missing piece myself and then advertise it as 100% complete. That will go a long way to insuring a better return and bring more interested buyers

    Assuming I've got the right one, the missing piece is readily available for a reasonable price:

    Getting that for £2/£3 will more than pay for itself as others have said.

    Thanks guys for all your comments and helpful hints, we have been buying and selling lego for years but to be honest this was a quick sale to make room and money towards the Simpsons house so that's why we havn't bothered with ebay and the like and I would rather offer it to the community and know that it's going to a good home than send it to someone who then says there are extra pieces missing or it never arrived, or refuses to pay the going postage rates etc etc.

    I have really fallen out with online auction places as there are too many people trying to rip buyers and sellers off, at least on brickset I feel like we have a good honest community and if there is a problem it can always be sorted. My friend bought the set cheaply and is happy to let it go cheaply too.
