Technic collection value?

phingocphingoc NorwayMember Posts: 1
Hi,

I think i am going to sell my technic collection soon, and i dont know how much it is worth. 
All sets are complete, all sets has aplied stickers (some good and some bad), all sets are with instructions and some sets have boxes in various conditions. 

41999 is not yet opend, and box is in mint condition. 

I also have 2x each Mixels set including series 5. (9 in each series. 5 series. Two of each. Total 90 polybags)
Non of them are opend. All in seald polybags.

Collection list is here:

Will i get most if i sell one and one, or all in one lot? 
Need fast cash. :smile: 

Thank you

    I would go to bricklink and similar, and see how much each individual set is worth. Add it all together, and then make a reasonable discount for bulk buying. You have your starting asking price. If after some time no one wants it at that price, lower it. 

    Arguably selling individual sets may bring more profit (but not necessarily). But if you'd rather do it bulk, I think the above admittedly generic approach is safe to go with!

    Are you asking us to go through all 149 of your items, value each of them, then recommend pricing for you?  That's a good one :)

    1) Gather the Mixels and sell them all at once
    2) Pluck out the Technic cherries like the flagship sets to sell individually
    3) Sell the rest as a bulk lot, which (used, stickers applied sometimes badly) will likely go for a disappointingly low price

    There are quite a few new ones there too. You'll be lucky if you can get 66% of RRP for those if sealed. As that is the type of discount many people will be able to buy them, if not fussed about waiting for a sale.

    That's why I think sometimes it might be more profitable to sell the lot cherries included. Luck is involved either way, but seeing nice bits among multitude of ordinary ones tends to raise the perceived value of the latter.. I think!

    Sounds good in theory, but then you're severely limiting your market to only those that can drop the massive cash on such a singular group and likely can only pickup locally.

    Equally the bigger the job lot the more of a discount people expect for the convience to you of only having to deal with one buyer.
