I've got a few old unseen. Namely an old fire lance box 10-804,(2riflemen, archer and Phawk), an original marauder 20-843 and a longbow 20-889. I now they have gone down since the high water mark. Marauder and longbow in the old light blue blister packs still sealed.
Also have a Uller and 2 Ryoken in those same sealed blisterpacks.
Anyone watching the market for these give an idea of a reasonable asking price so I put these up in the marketplace?

They show up for anywhere from 10 to 30+ dollars on ebay, though being in the blister may raise that.

I dunno if they SELL for that amount but that's what I tend to see them offered for.

several million C-bills each, as long as the fusion reactor is still under warranty, and the Gyro dosnt wobble to much ;)

EBay is flooded with recasts at $10. USD Actual items should fetch a bit more than current Iron Wind prices.

In the package migth get you $30 USD or more each if you're lucky but I don't know if recasts have depressed the market for even proven originals.

TMP'ers are cheap, but reliable (this from someone who has happily sold alot here) I bet you might get $10 USD-20 each here.

Good Luck.

Also, it always pays to check ebay "Completed Listings" if you want a more accurate idea of what the market will pay for something used.

Thanks for the comments folks.
I looked on ebay and the marauder is still the hottest. Recent auction NiB have sold for between 37$ and 73$.
There has only been 1 longbow on ebay recently and it went for 33$.
No complete fire lances have been sold or listed.
I'll just have to post them and see what the reaction is.

That's great news.
If they're fetchign that much I'd definitley put them up on ebay. It's worth the hassle to get top dollar. I don't use Ebay a ton ( most of my stuff sells here or at bartertown) but when it's time to get rid of something especially valuable (like a batch of Asterix minis I used to have) I head to Ebay.

Maurader's especially are fan favorites. I run a 28mm "Mech Attack" game at Adepticon with various mecha kits and my Maurader (actually a Macross "Glaug Officer Pod" kit) is almost always one of the first mechs chosen.

Best of luck with the sale!
