    It depends on the country you are in when you sell it, but that's somewhere in the middle of the prices paid.

    I figured I would go for the "make an offer" at $0 with the terms of "One of my kidneys." I figure I'd he says yes, I report him for either cannibalism(for biting on my offer(my kidney)) or for black a market dealing body parts and then take the figure when he is arrested.

    I don't believe that cannibalism is illegal...

    Is there any way to know if this is a #71000 Chicken Suit Guy or a 2016 one with a random old minifig bag (without having it in your hands and a list of tiny discrepancies to check for)?

    Any open #71000 versions will from now on be very hard to shift I would think, both in terms of authentication and the extra availability from the 2016 version.

    The head mold is different. They changed the head studs recently, so the 2016 Chicken Suit guy would have the new head. I also believe the inside of both feet are stamped with LEGO.

    No. You can't see either the stud or the inside of the feet.

    However, with TLG's habit of mixing parts, I wouldn't count on the stud type being definitive.

    This is true, but there might be enough time in between when Series 9 Chicken Suit Guy was produced and the 2016 version. The CMF line has a short production life compared to normal Lego sets. I do not have any production numbers, but they probably only produce a certain amount of CMF's and don't continue to produce more to meet demand. 

    I would say that if the Series 9 has the "Hollow Stud" head, you probably are good to go. If he also doesn't have "LEGO" stamped inside both feet, you should feel 99.9% confident that you have the real deal :)

    Its entirely possible to take any one of that fools quotes and switch out for merkins, and it makes just as much sense as it did before...

    I would love to be neutral if its possible, its probably not possible, because there's so much hatred, there's so much going on. I am very pro-merkin, I've always been pro-merkin. I have many awards for merkins, many many awards. I've contributed a lot of money for merkins, there's nobody more pro-merkin than I am, we have to protect merkins, merkins are so important to us.

    for me they are new even when opened and put together!

    what makes them "used" for me:  bite marks, printing coming off, scratches on the surface, loose clutch power ...
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 20,000
    You really don't want a merkin with loose clutch power. Or bite marks.

    That's fantastic, but probably the majority of LEGO collectors do not share your sentiment; neither does Ebay. The good news is that if you consider everything "new" even when put together, then you must be willing to pay "new" prices for "used" sets. Works for me ;)
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,563
    I've bought at least one used set that looked better than new, sealed ones. even in sealed bags you usually find dust.

    My grandson and I agree with brumey about "new" LEGO - "new" to our collection, but usually purchased at "used" prices, even when purchased brand new.

    Maybe that's Lego's new marketing strategy - pre-dust filled Lego.  

    That way you (the serious collector) don't have to wait to have your displayed Lego choked with dust...

    Some people find cleaning LEGO cathartic. As I said before, feeling CMF packets is my little escape to euphoria; mainly because the crackling of the packets drowns out my wife telling me I have to clean...most of the time it is all the LEGO everywhere. "What was that dear?"

    Sorry for posting on topic but I feel that a digital photocopy wouldn't cost over 2.54 to ship. 
    His feedback seems to reflect his listing.

    (Yes I realize emailing a digital photocopy costs nothing)

    I remember a UK news story about someone getting tricked this way into buying what he expected to be a games console. It's amazing how people's eyes skim over the "photo" part in the listing, because they're not looking for it...

    Hey, don't knock it.  I just used right click/save as to save myself $75 (what they charge for a digital version of the image).  I'm going to use those savings to buy an actual gun mounting system, making it a freebie. Woo!

    ^ Unless I am reading this wrong, he is selling a PHOTO on photo paper. NOT a digital copy and the price is $19.70 including shipping. A little silly for the price and what it is but not $75. Correct?
  • ricecakericecake Maryland, USAMember Posts: 879
    In the description, it states, "We also offer these images for purchase as a digital file for $75."
