[UK] FS - Sealed box of Team GB Minifigures - Thames Hospice

LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,720



Four years on we're back in Olympic season and I have a sealed box of 60 Team GB minifigures #8909-18 I'm willing to part with. I've given it a brief look over and would consider the box condition Very Good if not MINT.

Looking to ideally sell within the UK but might consider shipping abroad. Sealed boxes don't appear to come up for sale too often.

Offers welcome and I will pass 20% of the sale  to Thames Hospice (Charity number 1108298).

Thanks for looking.

    @DarthMorl Now you have my attention! I don't get paid till the 24th, alas.
  • mmozzanommozzano UKMember Posts: 413
    Same here, I'd be interested in a single set

    lets hope we can get 3 other takers

    I'd be interested in as set if the price is right and shipping isn't too much to the USA?

    @DarthMorl @mmozzano @MattDawson @SprinkleOtter  I'm in for a set but who will do the feeling and who gets to keep the box? I would like to get mine sealed in the bag though. And how do we split off the extras?
  • cmrt1014cmrt1014 Member Posts: 396
    Ok, I would be interested in being the fifth... I would like sealed in bag, as well, if possible.

    I would be interested in a single Relay Runner sealed packet. I need one as a gift for a British friend of mine who's a marathon runner.

    I'm happy to have opened packets and no interest in the box. How much does a box/set run for? Could the spares be sold separately or does one person want the extras? 

    Has anyone spoke to Legoboy to get an idea what he's after cost wise? 
  • DarthMorlDarthMorl Member Posts: 335
    So I thinking maybe the box and extras could be raffled off to the highest bidder within the group of 6?? 
    I'm sure @Legoboy would be happy to blind feel complete sets for us? 
  • MattDawsonMattDawson Solihull, UKMember Posts: 1,202
    I'm not bothered about the box, but judging from the fact a complete box is going on Ebay for £600, I'd suggest that equates to £10 per figure. As that will equate to £90 for a complete set...
  • oldtodd33oldtodd33 Denver 4800 miles to BillundMember Posts: 2,427
    A case of sealed GB figures generally goes for around 1200 US. So for 6 people it will cost 200 US plus shipping per person.

    An open box from a 0 feedback seller isn't really a fair way to value these. I was thinking about grabbing these, did a bit of research and have seen boxes hit £1100 twice recently and many full sets going for well over £200 a set. 
  • mmozzanommozzano UKMember Posts: 413
    Eek! For that kind of money I'd have to say "I'm out!"
  • DarthMorlDarthMorl Member Posts: 335
    Ok so maybe the best thing to do is post or PM me with the max that each can afford? 
  • DarthMorlDarthMorl Member Posts: 335
    @joel4motion are you saying you would like to be included in the group purchase should we be able to sort out an agreeable amount?

    So I have a pm from @MattDawson.
    Anyone else seriously interested please pm me
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,720
    Possibly time for me to speak up.

    I'd be happy to split a sealed box into 6 sets and sell the individual sets sealed for a minimum of 5 purchasers - I'll be happy to keep the 6th set if a 6th purchaser isn't found.

    I think a fair price for each set is £175 including postage and I will make further donations to the hospice on your behalf when I pass other fundraising monies to them (not yet recorded).  That way JustGiving doesn't take a cut.  :)

    PM @DarthMorl if you're interested.

    @Legoboy  Would that 175 include shipping to the US?

    Good point.  £185 to the US and I'll swallow the extra.

    But if US prices are cheaper, are they not a better option?  :)

    ^ So still a worthwhile saving to send from the UK.  Thanks @Bricklover18.  :)

    i'll buy a set if they are sealed in the foil.
  • HanskepHanskep BelgiumMember Posts: 8
    If I count correct that makes 5xcomplete set and 1xsome of the spares? Or is it 4x?

    6x Sets
    1x Spares of Swimmer, Relay Runner, Judo Fighter, Tennis Player, Gymnast and Archer
  • HanskepHanskep BelgiumMember Posts: 8
    Hi, I think I was a little bit confusing in my last post... What I meant to ask was If we had enough people willing to buy a set. I counted 5people for the complete set (could be 4) and 1 persoon who wanted to buy the spares.

    @Legoboy   Just a note to everyone here. Legoboy was correct, I found a sealed set with a decent box for $250 US here so I'm out for this one. I even got 10% back in Ebay bucks with it so it was cheaper to buy in the states. 
  • MinifigureMaddnessMinifigureMaddness Ireland Member Posts: 11
    Still have these available?

    They are.  The split never got concluded so am happy to resurrect if numbers are still there or can be made up.  :)

    It was a fair while since they previously confirmed so completely understandable if they no longer have the thirst.

    I could be persuaded. But I am in the Gobi Desert right now with limited internet so can I sort when I get back on the 2nd?
