Hi guys
Just wondering what the best way is to set prices on partially opened or resealed vintage figures?

A bit of background...My collecting philosophy has always been if it displays well and its all original then its for me. Over the years I've been picking up items that a lot of people wouldn't want, but I feel they display well once star cased and up with their other carded buddies Smile About 5 years ago I decided I really didn't like all those different offers detracting from the character photos, so changed my carded collection to be "first release & offerless". This has meant I've slowly been replacing all of my cardbacks with offers, to those without.

So now I have around 17 figures that I'm looking to pass on, but some of which I have had for 10 years or so, some of which are minty, some partially opened and some resealed...so have no idea of what price to set on them... any general ideas? I can list the specific figures and condition if that helps?

I only have 5 figures to go to complete this set (7 if you count upgrading my Han and Ben 21 backs to 12 backs - 9 if you count Canadian offerless Paploo & Lumat), so if you have any of these spare drop me a line Smile
Bespin Guard Black, 3PO Removable Limbs, R2 Sensorscope, 4-LOM (all on 48a backs) or that easy to come by Anakin (POTF 92 back)

I should have also added - I was going to list them here first to give TIGers first dibs before going to eBay. If listing on eBay i'd just let the bidding set the price on most of them, but if listing here I think I need to list with prices and want to make sure I'm not giving them away, but not setting stupid prices either...Very Happy

Pictures will help Jeff im pretty good with MOC values.

One thing to consider is Fully resealed MOC's are akin in value to a mint complete loose figure and cardback.

Partially opened ones - it would really depend on the extent ill be able to help more when you through some pictures up Smile

thanks heaps Jay! And thanks for the interest guys. Am flat out with our new puppy this weekend, so if I don't get to in in the next couple of days, keep your eyes peeled next weekend.

I'll mark any figures of interest mentioned here with 'first dibs' Smile
