You've gotta sell these? Man, that's pretty ******* tragic. Beautiful figures, though... I'm sure they'll go to a happy home.

Sad to see you let them go, I'm sure they will go to a collector that will take care of them.

Well there now on Ebay  :'( Item number is 260017039902 if anyone wants to see how they go, there on U.K Ebay as well I'm in the U.K. Prices tend to be quite alot higher on the U.K market than the U.S one I've noticed.
To be honest I'm not really too disapointed.
For me the fun was collecting them, searching for a bargain or a badly listed figure and the fun you have watching those ebay auctions in the last minutes is great.
I think my best find was the last 17 R2D2 other than litlte yellowing on the sticker the est of its in excellent condition totally mint head and the legs etc are really white no yellowing at all.
At the minute there just in display in my store and really I could use the space and the money to start stocking the new Star Wars figures so they've got to go.

That's a great looking set Kirk, especially those nice white Troopers.  Good luck.

Wow, great collection and they all still look so great! Too bad you have to sell them. Hope you'll get a great price for this fine collection!

Well I've just had a message from a guy askng if Ill take £700 cash ($1,333.20) and he'll come and collect them to save me posting etc. Its pretty much what my reserve price was so I think I'll probably accept it.

Seems low to me, given the condition of the figures you have shown in the pictures.  But that's not my decision to make.

Well he hasnt got back to me yet anyway so I'll wait and see what happens.
They're currently only £310 ($589.21) and with only 2 days 10 hours to go I'll be suprised if they increase by £400.

I see the auction ened at £740.00 or $1,402.45 US. I had to copy & paste that pound sign...  ;D

I hope the transaction goes well with you Kirk.  :)  Still sorry to see you let them go.  :-\

The guy who wanted to collect changed his mind said it was too far to travel.
Havent recieved any payment yet though  >:( the buyer seems to have good feedback though so hopefully there shouldnt be any problems.
Once payment's recieved I'll be ordering a few cases of the the Saga waves for the store.

Did I hear (see) you say that you had to sell them because business is slow?  I hope that's not true and that you're able to keep your business going...

Business has been quite slow the last month but thats not the reason for sale really.
I had to sell them to fund some new lines for the store without breaking into my other funds.
I'm using the money to start stocking some of the new saga waves:
Wave 3 Battle of Coruscant
Wave 5 Battle of Tatooine
Wave 6 Battle of Endor
Wave 2 Battle of Genosis
And also to stock some of the Marvel legends and expand on our movie maniacs lines aswell as some other things.

To be honest I'm not really all that disapointed to see them go.
They were a nice talking point in the store for the few vintage collectors who visit but most people didnt really appreciate what they were and just asked why they werent for sale individually.
I personally wouldnt have displayed them in my personal collection as I'm more into collecting Sideshow and Gentle Giant pieces and they'd have looked out of place and to be fair there not the most attractive figures.
The main reason I started collecting them was as a hobbie and I had a bit of extra cash at the time. Once the collection was complete so was the hobbie and I wasnt really to bothered about displaying them, before i opened the business they where just bagged up in a box anyway. Hopefully they've gone to someone who will appreciate them but I think judging by the winners feedback he'll be reselling.

Cool!

I hope they sell fast - having those cardbacks exposed to that window will fade them very fast. 

You may want to merchandise them on a wall if you have the space.
