    Yeah... the Snow Speeder is going to be a hard one to let go. Unfortunately it is also the only one that will potentially bring in a decent chunk of change.  :( the only offer I got so far though was for $650. That seemed to be half of what it was selling for on average. I mean I get that when you want to sell something quick you have to sell it cheaper, but 50% seems like too much of a low ball.

    These are not-inexpensive things.  Do you have some credentials you would like to share?
  • hs.philihs.phili Delaware Member Posts: 15
    What kind of credentials? I'm pretty new to all of this. If people lived nearby I would be happy to let them see it in person. Otherwise I'm not sure what else. If you have suggestions please let me know.

    I have never sold anything before on any kind of site  :/ The only reason I am selling these now is because I don't have enough cash to get me through my last year of school. I am not sure of another way of verifying... Maybe skype? I'm happy to do whatever needs to be done to make a buyer comfortable.

    Do you have a Paypal account? Both the buyer and seller have a reasonable amount of protection especially if you send to a Paypal verified address. Of course they take their cut but I would not do business any other way. Good luck on both the sale and the last year of grad school! 
  • hs.philihs.phili Delaware Member Posts: 15
    I have bought things with PayPal, I am happy to set it up to sell things too  :)

    You may want to consider a consignment arrangement with someone that has excellent eBay feedback to sell the more expensive sets.

    $650.00 is pretty low when at auction it is going for twice as much on the Snowspeeder.

    I'm still not entirely convinced all those $1200 plus Snowspeeder eBay sales are real - the two I've sold over the last two years have only ever got 8-9 hundred... Would be interested to hear from a seller who would verify a genuine 1200+ sale...

    I sold mine for $1,525 in an auction on eBay in May 2015.

    The prices are real enough on Bricklink. 6 NIB sets sold over the last 6 months for an average of $1257.00.

    How much for the AT AT and Imperial Inspection?
  • CommanderRaabCommanderRaab Edinburgh, ScotlandMember Posts: 608
    Nice collection. The Y-Wing and Snowspeeder are 2 sets I always felt got away :( Sadly I can't afford the asking price for them now. Might try bricklink them oneday if that is possible. Good luck selling

    If you at all consider lowering the price of the Clone Turbo Tank, let me know...

    I am taking best offers into consideration. Please feel free to message me an offer. I do need to sell these relatively quickly.
  • hs.philihs.phili Delaware Member Posts: 15
    Due to a lack of interest, and recommendations from helpful users here, I decided to list my collection on Ebay. Sorry! :/
  • B_HollsB_Holls Member Posts: 41
    Could you give a link to the eBay site

    If you need to sell these relatively quick, then I recommend you lower your prices (except on the Y-Wing, which I've already advised you about in PM).

    While you will get more on eBay, they will take some time to sell... especially, if you are making a new eBay account. People will be very suspicious of a 0 feedback seller selling multiple sealed, rare, and expensive sets.

    ^No need to be though. Paypal don't even release the money to the seller unless feedback is left by the buyer.

    Here's a little ebay trick I learned awhile back.  Refine your search parameters to only show sold items.  Using this trick I see that two Snow Speeders recently sold for over $2,000 each.  Hope this helps.

    I listed the y-wing like you recommended and made exactly what you told me. It sold in 24 hours for almost twice what i listed it here for! I have also had much better offers on the snow speeder than I did on here =D Thank you so much!

    I have been using this trick to determine what prices to list the items at! It seems to make the most sense! I also sometimes check other online sellers =) I don't think I'm being to unreasonable about the $1500 snowspeeder... Some of my best offers are looking pretty decent though =D

    One of my best offers for the snowspeeder is already above that amount =)

    I'm glad to see you're getting good money for these, especially when you need the money.

    I would have loved to have bit on that Y-Wing, but I did not have the money available, and personally I know it goes for much higher than your original asking price and would have felt a little guilty only paying that much for it.
  • msandersmsanders Member Posts: 901
    Good to see that you're getting a good return on your Lego to fund school. One bit of advice about ebay - take lots of pictures of the items to keep for yourself just in case of a claim of 'not as described'. Also insure your items for shipping and get signed for! You really need to cover your back with ebay buyers!
