Unknown to many, I'm streamlining my collection and have been for the past 1.5 months.
I've sold off quite a number of pieces - these included toys from the following lines: Classics, Generations, United, Henkei, TF Movie, BotCon, Robot Heroes, Robot Masters, third party TFs and etc.
Whilst its no secret, I suspect that the majority of readers here will not have heard or seen the sales because I've had them all listed on Yahoo Hong Kong, and with Mandarin descriptions no less (thanks to E for drafting).
Selling on Yahoo HK is pretty cool because I never have to post out anything. When a person wins an auction, we will just arrange for a day and time to meet up in person and transact. The most common meeting points are the train stations that are near toy shops or near my office. Its convenient to meet up and transact and then wander off for toy shopping before heading home in the evenings. It's great fun I gotta admit.
Phase 1 is complete because today, I met up with the final person and passed him the last of the toys from this batch.
Did a quick calculation and see that this batch has netted a revenue of HKD$6657 or US$858. Really not bad considering the nature and type of the pieces that I've sold.
The ones that ended at surprisingly high prices (to me), were:
- Generations Drfit loose, complete with instructions - HKD$189 (US$24.30)
- Classics Galvatron loose, complete with instructions - HKD$180 (US$23.20)
- United UN-01 Convoy MOSC - HKD$625 (US$80.55)
- Robot Masters RM-17: Victory Saber giftset MIB - $547 (US$70.50)
Phase 2 will begin soon and will include pieces from Brave DX, Masterpiece (MP), SCFs, SCF chase figures and (a limited) number of G1 figures (including mail away figures).
