I hate to part with any portion of my collection but I'll be moving from VA to NY in the near future and the thought of moving my collection, especially the built sets is giving me a panic attack.
I'm mostly interested in selling the assembled portion of my collection, most notably my modular collection. It won't be a firesale by any means, and I'm only advertising it here as I know this is a good group of collectors who aren't interested in nonsense. If someone comes with a fair offer, I'll wheel and deal. Not interested in selling piece by piece no time for that. Only interested in someone coming and taking a large portion of the collection, at least the built pieces that will be hard to move. Will include sealed sets for additional $$s as desired.
I'm currently in NY so no pictures available now but here are the highlights of my collection:
Complete modular collection from Cafe Corner to Bookshop. Important notes:
-Cafe Corner and Market Street are bricklinked with color substitutions. Cafe Corner color subs are minimal, Market Street was done with a very different color scheme - Orange and blue vs. 2 tone blue.
-All other modulars are originals. 2 I purchased used: Town Hall (from a member here) and Green Grocer (Ebay). Town Hall does not include box. Green Grocer comes with damaged box. No boxes for CC and Market Street as they are bricklinked. All other sets have boxes. Some of them received slight water damage a couple years back but are in OK shape. Bookshop is still sealed!!
Included with the modulars are several other sets, cars, vehicles, minifigures etc. Also have several built Ninjago sets including Ninjago City and Temple of Airjitsu. I have old fishing village, a mid sized Millenium Falcon, UCS Snowspeeder, VW bus, a bunch of brickheadz, many many collectible mini figures. I'll throw in 4 Ikea shelving units with counter tops that have made for my city scape. Might be willing to throw in other shelving units if someone has the space to haul. Anything that makes my move easier!
I haven't done the homework to come up with a fair market value for all of this. Of course there will be a discount to factor in I'm leaving all the work for the buyer. Pickup, packing, sorting, etc. I'll help where I can! Realistically I can't see myself parting with this collection for anything less than 5K. If someone wanted to come and take some of the sealed sets too, like I said, I'll be open to anything but the offer has to be right.
Other highlights of my collection that I have in sealed sets:
1st Edition UFC Millenium Falcon (10179)
New UFC Millenium Falcon (75192)
Many other UFC Start Wars sets, many retired
Too many other sealed sets to mention - an entire closet full, and other sealed sets overflowing in other sections of the house.
I have archived a very small portion of my sets on Brickset and the retail value Brickset gives me is over $7k just to give you all some idea of the collections size and worth. Some of those sets are kids sets that are disassembled and in disarray in tubs that will probably make the move with us but that's a very small amount.
This is one of those things that would be good for those of you who are local and interested to come see for yourself. I'm happy to show it. You can wear mask, not wear mask, I'm cool either way whatever makes you comfortable. I'll wear one too if you want. If someone is willing to drive a reasonable distance to see it I'm willing to answer questions, send pics etc but only willing to do any showings for seriously interested people.
It may not be the deal of a lifetime - but this is a chance to get a pretty large collection with a good "I'm too lazy to move it" discount!! Hit me up with PM if you're interested.
