Best way to sell Vintage Collection Slave1

Postby db94 » Wed Aug 09, 2017 1:23 pm

Thinking (but don't really want to) of selling my Amazon exclusive Slave1.

It's from the Vintage Collection so has that beautiful box mirroring the original vintage release. I know the packaging is the main draw for some collectors so the question is do I remove it from the sealed white mailer box so potential buyers see the box art or am I better to keep it sealed as is?

I've bought it direct from Amazon when it was released and liked having it tucked away in the original outer brown Amazon box knowing the ship was inside "waiting" to be opened :D

What's everyone's thoughts?
Cheers

I wouldn't open it if you haven't already. If you had a picture of what the box is like along with your sale that would help. Then any potential buyer see's what he's getting and it leaves them with the option of opening it themselves or still keep it sealed. I'd say you'd get more for it that way.

Sealed mate, advertise it with a stock photo of the contents as Collie suggested.

As an aside I sold the VCP03 RF Fett back in 2014 on Ebay and had one bidder ask if I could open it to prove what was in it, somewhat missing the point of having a sealed mailer :roll:

I sold mine last weekend at FF for £70, did not have the mailer box though and was opened but contents were never taken out.

I'm with the majority...leave sealed and use a stock photo when advertising Colin...anybody who collects this line will appreciate that more (I know I would anyway if I collected them)

Cheers guys - yep sealed with an accompanying stock picture showing the box art is the smart way to go if I sell. Thanks for feedback :)
