What is the best way to sell off my Star Wars collection?

hs.philihs.phili Delaware Member Posts: 15
I am currently putting myself through a masters program and having trouble making all of my bills. Unfortunately it seems like I am going to have to part with my prized lego collection to make it through my last year of school.  
I have several unopened sets (ex. Snowspeeder #10129, Y-wing #10134, Republic Gun Ship #7163)
as well as some opened but with all pieces accounted for (ex. Rebel Blockade Runner #10019)
I have seen Brian's, which seems like a rip off... I checked what he was offering and it was honestly laughable. Is there any other way to sell these relatively quickly without taking a 50% loss of their actual value?

    Probably ebay as an auction if you want to be relatively quick. Bricklink is an alternative, although likely to be slower. You could try here, although you're likely to get lowball offers but may get lucky.

    Remember summer is often a bad time to be selling lego.

    Im sure if you listed them in the market forums you could get rid of some of it. If speed is a priority then mass discounts is the way to go.  Just my two cents.  Good luck

    You can open a Bricklink Shop but buyers will be a bit wary of a brand new shop offering Star Wars UCS sets with little to no feedback as that screams scam even if it isn't. You could also list them on here with some feedback you have from elsewhere and probably come to a reasonable price with someone. Craigslist might also work.

    Selling online just makes me nervous since I've heard of people using paypal to in essence steal sets. (claiming it wasn't received, or not as described when it is) Does anyone know the actual value of these sets? Is $1200 too much for the snow speeder? I listed it for 1500 on ebay with no bites. The whole process just seems very confusing...

    You can filter both Ebay and Bricklink to only show you completed sales, to weed out those that are over priced and don't sell.  That should give you a pretty good idea of value.
