To be honest, not much. Those POTF2 figures just aren't in demand. I see a glut of them on ebay and nobody is buying. If you just want to get rid of them and you are willing to accept a loss, you might get a buck or two a piece for them but don't expect more than that. You could always donate them and use it as a tax write-off.

I agree 100%. These are inferior sculpts compared to the new figures. The best ones (that have somewhat stood the test of time) are C3PO, Boba Fett, and Stormtrooper. But even then Boba and Stormy are still too buff looking. Good luck!

Have you considered using a blender? :pleased:

Oh, that is rich...almost as rich as a POTF2 action figure milkshake. And you can hock the blender when you're done and make a few bucks.

My guess is you'll end up spending more in gas driving to the post ofice to mail out individual sales and time = money than what you'll make (at leats for those fiures listed).

I'd try selling in small lots with a higher priced figure to get people to bite on the as mentioned above less than superior POTF-2 sculpts.

You could also sell them to online dealers/stores. Some of them have Buy Lists, or will buy entire collections. But you won't earn much money on it, compared to what you put in -- they will be in it for the profit (obviously) and so you will get, like $1.99 for something you paid $5.99 for. Some items you will do better on though -- and if you're simply looking to unload them, it's a great way to lighten the load.

I'm selling all my POTF2 and doing just fine on eBay -- almost entirely (80%) to collectors overseas. POTF2 sales have been brisk for me the last few weeks. Also, you can have the USPS come to your house and pick up your shipments -- AND you can order many sizes of free boxes from them online. I print all my postage right online too -- it's super easy. Packing peanuts, however, can be expensive.

I've also donated a bunch to local charities, because how cool is it if you're a struggling kid and you suddenly get some Star Wars toys?

Good luck!

how do much do you usually charge for shipping overseas? Is it a flat rate everywhere, or are all countries different?

I'll take all of them off your hands if you want? I need to fill it a lot of gaps in my POTF collection.

Are they all carded? If it's a space issue, crack 'em open. I have about 600 figs that fit into one utility tub.

Quite honestly, JUST KEEP 'EM!!! I made this mistake when I was a kid, getting rid of all my vintage stuff, and I had some COOL vintage stuff (among it, blue snaggletooth). Even if you have to de-card it to fit it in one box, your future kids will love you for it.

If you STILL want to sell it all, I'd suggest taking it to a collectible show and selling it as one big lot. Piecemealing sucks for the seller.

Either way, PM me if you've got a list, there's some blue card, clones, and saga stuff I don't have.

:::EDIT:::

I read your post a little more closely. Is that all you've got? Why are you bothering even selling them?

It varies from country to country, and obviously by shipping weight and package size. eBay has a shipping calculator (Google will bring it right up) and so does the USPS website. I shipped off 3 pounds of POTF2 carded figures yesterday (around 18 pieces) to Australia and it cost about $28.00, to give you one example.
