Making space

TheUltimateTFOLTheUltimateTFOL Texas, USAMember Posts: 155
So, recently I took a look in my closet and realized that I was running out of place to store Lego sets. As sad as it is, I have to clear out some space. So, I created an Amazon account to sell my sets. Unfortunately, I do own a lot of older, obscure sets and I'm not getting any buyers, so I decided to ask you Brickset guys if anyone wants to buy from me.

The way this will work is every Saturday I will post a new set to be sold. I'll post information on it, but no price. It's up to you, the bidders, to provide me a reasonable price. If I find a reasonable price during the week, I will list it as the price on the Amazon page that Saturday. Otherwise, I will wait until the next Saturday until changing the price. Now, here's the catch. Let's say you bid a price and I accept it that Saturday but you do not buy the set or are late in buying it. Anyone else can buy it, and if no one buys it then that will stay the set's price. Questions? Leave a comment.

Now onto the details of this week's set, which is Anakin's Jedi Starfighter, one of the original Clone Wars sets.
Box: A little beaten up but still in okay shape. (BTW, I think this set was released as both an Episode III and Clone Wars set so I guess that means the box is an exclusive.
Pieces: Contains all but one, which is pretty minor, and both minifigures.
This set includes the box, instructions, and all but one of the pieces.

MSG me prices!

    Whoops, I forgot the link. The link is http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B000T718MI/ref=dp_olp_collectible?ie=UTF8&condition=collectible . I'm HAJLegos. Don't worry about the price, I'll change it.

    Not sure why you would sell on Amazon over eBay or bricklink. Amazon fees are outrageous as well as their return policy if I am not mistaken.

    So.... basically, you created an ebay-style Amazon account that is totally elusive on whether or not you have or have not accepted a 'bid'...  Sounds sketchy.

    HOw about this: 
    1) Research a fair price that you would be willing to sell your set for.  Comp sold prices can be found on ebay, bricklink and/or brickpicker.
    2) Provide a list of your sets and asking prices here on Brickset.
    3) people can buy your sets.

    You know why companies like Apple and google work?  They keep it simple.

    This sounds too complicated and I unnecessarily involved. Amazon can charge upwards of 18% ebay is fixed at 10% I think you should do more research and find a more orthodox method of unloading sets.

    That is an awful lot of fuss for a set that you will be lucky to get more than $25.00 for. Additionally it's not clear how you intended to handle shipping costs. If your intent is to "clean out the closet" try listing them all here. There might be a dealer that will give you a decent package price and your not having to pay any ebay or amazon fees.

    Yeah, I guess you're all right. This is the first time I've ever sold anything. I'm taking down the Amazon listing and moving it to eBay, but I'll still take offers.

    BTW, is anyone interested in a Republic Attack Cruiser for $275? I can lower the price.
