Thanks Nick, appreciate that. Luckily there are no dependents to worry about, my surviving brother and I are just splitting everything 50/50. The only time consideration is how long do I feel like looking at all these boxes in my man cave? Would like to have it all wrapped up by the end of the summer if possible, I think.

We finally finished cleaning out all the non furniture stuff from his last storage bin yesterday, and wouldnít you know it I found like 12 more mint in box retired SW sets. I catalogued everything last night and I believe the grand total was 104 unopened sets, something like 67 of which were retired SW sets.  :o

The fees I would end up paying on this stuff seemed pretty obscene, so I am rethinking the eBay thing now. I joined a SW Lego collector group on FB last night so hopefully that yields some results. At least there I am only paying for shipping and a 3% PayPal fee. (As opppsed to the 15% or so eBay steals) just wonder how they handle disputes if someone claims they never got something and demands their money back.

All these responses have been very helpful guys, thanks again.

Thank you, Jeff.

Rob, I will let you know about the DSII, it will probably be one of the last things I deal with since it is the largest out of the 70 sets I have to offload.

Ed - thanks for the tip on FB, I think I will test the waters and see how that goes maybe.

Gotta say, going through this has made me realize what a burden this kind of stuff can potentially become for the people who are left behind to deal with everything. Definitely makes me want to have a smaller footprint and also start meticulously cataloging everything ďjust in caseĒ.

Thanks a lot guys, appreciate that. He was a great guy and I sure do miss him a lot.  :'(

I have thought about FB marketplace but have not had any experience with that. I guess there are some Lego specific e-commerce sites like Brickmarket like Iíve seen recommended. So I may look into that too.

So, my brother passed away recently and we have been steadily cleaning out a couple of storage bins of stuff he had accumulated over the years, including a TON of unopened LEGO sets, mostly Star Wars. Iíve been gradually bringing the stuff home and cataloging it, thought I had reached the end but found four more big boxes today.

The stuff I brought home today had never even been removed from the original shipping boxes, in fact none of the shipping boxes had even been opened. Among the stuff I found was:

UCS Imperial Star Destroyer
UCS Tantive IV
Death Star II

Looks like those three alone are worth quite a bit now. For you LEGO guys, any suggestions on the best way to sell these? I figure I can always try eBay but would prefer a different option if possible.

Thanks for any advice!

So whatís the deal with Chopper from this wave?? Heís sold out everywhere and I havenít seen any restocks in months. Is that it? Why is this not a character to carry forward in future waves?

I got Padme and Anakin from Amazon yesterday.

I have to wonder why we are not seeing more of these things at deep discounts or on clearance yet. Target is the only one so far to drop their price on this. I canít imagine they are selling many at Walmart or GameStop. You canít even find them in store.

I got an about-to-ship notice too for this too.

Free shipping today only at Disney, so I went ahead and picked this up. Itís been back in stock for a week or two I think.

I found the new ANH Vader and Mines of Mandalore Mando on the pegs at Target this morning. They had two of each. I guess those are the only two shipping in that wave?
