[US] Considering Selling Deadpool Minifigure

Hi there! I'm considering selling a Deadpool minifigure and I'm trying to figure out if it's worth it or not. The minifigure is in great condition with an almost brand new head and used torso and legs. The right arm has a crack. What do you guys think would be a fair price? Again, I don't know if I will sell him. I still trying to decide, but any price ideas are welcome. Thanks!

    I would say to  check BL price guide, or completed eBay listings to get a good idea (on eBay, beware of the prices for illegal knockoffs)

    You could also replace the arm with a new one. As long as you disclose that you will probably still get a better price than you would with the cracked arm. At the very least your audience would widen considerably.

    Make sure though when you replace the arm it is not all loose (which can occur when taking arms off and putting them back on)
    Also, is that a crack or a mold line?

    Just asking. Wouldn't the replacement arm be the same as original? Why the disclosure?

    Because I believe arm molds are different from all the years (Im sure with shading differences too), but I'm not sure those on bricklink make that distinction. I guess if you ensure you get a 'new' condition arm someone would not have to say anything, but it would likely need to match the mold marks of the other 'good' arm (yeah, Im guessing for 20+ dollars people want an 'accurate' figure)
    In the end, if someone does not put the arm was replaced, and someone buys it and discovers that then you get into the whole complaint about how the figure was not really described properly.

    It's a crack. And yes, I know about loose arms. There's actually a way to fix that, but I wouldn't do it to a minifig that I was about to sell.

    Buy the new arm and give the seller both. Let them make the choice.

    Didn't know arm molds have changed. Thanks for the info, learned something new today.

    > almost brand new head and used torso and legs

    What does this mean? Have you replaced the head at some stage?

    Otherwise, I don't see how the torso and legs can be used but the head almost new - surely the head has been used as much as the legs and torso.

    @CCC: yes, I received the Deadpool without a head and purchased a replacement.

    Honestly, and this is just my opinion, I'd just keep it. This is a highly sought after minifigure that isn't likely to have a new version any time soon. BUT...you have a version with a crack and a replaced head. While you could replace the arm as well, you've now pieced him together. I'm not saying that's a bad thing...just seems like a lot of trouble for something you might not get $20 for.

    Last 6 months average new sold price on BL is $34.85. Used is $28.58. You've realistically got a used version with replacements.

    Yeah, I'm definitely not going to try selling him on BL. There's quite a few being sold on there for $20, so that's not really worth it.

    There is some irony with a Frankenstein Deadpool figure being of lesser value...

    @Huw: Would you mind closing this thread? The Deadpool minifigure is in the process of being traded and I don't want to end up with any more offers after he's gone.
