UCS AT-AT for sale

tristanbanetristanbane Member Posts: 33
Hi

I'm planning in selling some of my high value lego sets. Most will be on eBay but some such as this At-At by Cavegod I'll post here first as this community will more likely recognise it and its potential value. As you can see from the image it is mostly built and I have all the parts required to complete it. In fact I'll also throw in any duplicates I have which will total around 7000 bricks (including the very rare wheels from the 10030 isd).

If interested please contact me with offers or any further questions. I reckon I spent about 1000 bricklinking the set as I always buy new.

I would prefer to ship to the UK only but will consider offers from further afield.

    Nice! :)

    Temping... oh, if only there was a nice set of instructions for that. :)

    Is the 1000 figure in pounds, since you're in the UK?

    Hey LFT

    Yes, I spent approximately £1k on the bricks. Mainly because I was a stickler for colour matching and buying new (And I bought the 2573 Giant LBG Wheels, the cheapest of which are $80 on Bricklink at the moment!).

    I mentioned the cost-to-me price mainly to ward off silly offers. I'm open to any reasonable offers.

    As for the instructions, I've not spoken to Pete regarding his resell policy yet. If the set sells I'll happily comply with his wishes (For instance, Anio doesn't approve of people reselling his instructions so when[if] I sell his Slave1 and Tie Figher I'll give him the cost of the instructions also)

    Cheers

    Tristan

    The image seems to disappeared from the first post. Removed by admin?

    Anyway - here is another from flickr.

    A bit off topic here but I love that UCS Slave I in the background of the above image! I had not seen one like it before somehow but it looks great.

    If you are offloading some larger sets, I think you might do better to sell as many of them as possible here on the forum, and then move to eBay with the remainder unless you are looking for a particularly quick sale. The prices you will achieve on here will likely be a bit better.

    Thanks for the advice CapnRex101. I'm in no particular rush to sell at all, in fact, the idea to sell any was a bit of a whim to fund other pass-times!

    The Slave1 in the photo was designed by Anio and you can see it in all its glory over on Eurobricks.

    In truth I'm not entirely how much of the collection I'll be selling yet but most likely the high value sets which I find hard to justify keeping due to their worth (such as NIB 10030, NISB 10143 and 10179 [opened 6 months ago and built once])

    Still not sure about the Y-wing and Snowpeeder you can see in the background (both opened from new 6 months ago).

    :) I totally understand the feeling... at some point, you have enough plastic in the house that when someone offers you a thousand bucks for one of them, it seems silly to say no. :)

    That is why I sold my UCS Falcon... as much as I love it and for how cool it is, $2,000 cash in my hand was more interesting, that takes my family on vacation for a week, which means more to me in the long run than another plastic model.

    (yea, how dare I!)

    Your challenge is that you paid nearly $2,000 for those bricks, which is perhaps fair for their value, but it makes it a darn expensive set. I still want one, I have a dog bowl ready to be filled with Rebels to put in front of it and place both at my front door to welcome guests.

    I did buy the LDD file already, but what I meant was more professionally produced instructions. I know LDD "generates" instructions, but those are just no substitute for the real deal.

    I can't wait to build my AT-AT. I have like 50 parts left to get and while they aren't really super expensive they're just rare or random enough that I'm going to end up having to make like 10+ orders to get them and just haven't bothered yet.

    Yeah, I understand this was an expensive set for me to bricklink. To me the the thrill of the chase and the subsequent build were worth the premium. I've probably scared of prospective buyers highlighting my purchase cost! This is not an official set and I don't expect it to appreciate in value like a true ucs. Considering I bought extras, postal costs of individual orders and the premium I'm happy to have paid for the joy of building I think the set is worth in the region of £600. Offers over that I would entertain, any less would hurt to much!

  • tristanbanetristanbane Member Posts: 33
    Sorry guys, cash only. Any offer over 600 considered.

    Wish I could take the plunge on this beauty... but I'm afraid that it will fall apart due to USPS's international shipping service, faster than it would to a snowspeeder with a cable.

    I am tempted. $1000 shipped to the states?
  • tristanbanetristanbane Member Posts: 33
    Atat now sold. Thanks to everyone who expressed interest.
