WatfordScottyM: Looking for Input on eBay Bid

edited December 2012 in Buying & Selling Topics
I missed out on an ebay auction the other day of the following sets:

#2259 Skull Motorbike
#2507 Fire Temple
#9440 Venomari Shrine
#9441 Kai's Blade Cycle
#9445 Fangpyre Truck Ambush
#9446 Destiny's Bounty
#9558 Training Set

All were 2nd hand, boxed with instructions except #9440 ad #9558. I bid £75 but it went for £77 in the end, but now I'm gutted and thinking I didn't bid enough.

What are others thoughts on the value of that lot?

    Sounds like a good deal. I hate that "outbid by a hair" feeling. You ask yourself why you didnt just bid the extra bit to avoid the grief of missing out entirely, but then why not a little more, or a little more than a little more to be "safe"? Be patient, something else will pop up eventually, maybe after Xmas.

    Don't sweat it....for all you know, the person who won the auction could have placed a maximum bid of hundreds of pounds for it so you'd never have won unless you were willing to break the bank. Admittedly I think £77 is a good deal for all that lot, but if you'd continued to bid it could have gone to £100, £150 or even more.

    You're right. For every one I lose there will be others that I win for a steal. It was mainly the Fire Temple I was after anyway, the other sets would have been a bonus.
