Seeies 3 moc

Postby paul463 » 05 Aug 2017 21:48

Thinking about selling my series 3 moc! No sentimental value and I'll never complete the set. Really have no room for them either. Thoughts?

I have Firefly MOC.......

I loved series three, but that is just me. Was it as good as series two? No, but I still loved it. Realistically, anything in BAF was my bag, baby. I'm surprised it isn't yours.

Depends on what your collecting aims are really. You could sell them to generate funds for other purchases, and concentrate on what you really want to collect. I'm sure you would get plenty of interest on here.

Similarly I have a bunch of Star Wars POTF figures that I started collecting but had no sentimental value to them, and knew long ago would never complete the set. After much deliberation decided to sell them all off start of the year and use funds to collect figures I was really interested in. I don't regret it, and much happier now I can focus on the things I want rather than having half a collection gathering dust that I don't really want.

Personally I'd wait.
I govon and off toys like a yoyo
Sold nearly all my clone wars figures to cover xmas the year I lost my job and at the time had got bored with them.
Now im trying to replace them and some of the figs I sold are worth a fortune.
Same with my vintage joes.
I know I'll never display them but this was a major part of my childhood and if I sell them I'll never replace them again.
Hard call bro

It is difficult. Series three arrived when I was 13 so I never really got in to them. My problem is that there is little room for things now that my cave is a 10 x 10 shed! And being honest my models are more of an interest these days.

I'll sleep on it some more. I'm back to work tomorrow after a month off do there won't be time to do much anyway.

Feeling your pain mate! Space was the final killer for me, even though I had completed. And the prices went up and up, at a time when I needed capital for other major projects, so I had to focus on what had the sentimental attachment, and what had a little less of a sentimental attachment.

I still have boxes upon boxes of other stuff to sort that is of little to no attachment - loose later era Joes, convention stuff etc, but the series 3 was a hard cal on my part.

Bizarrely, if values had been higher for s1 that would have gone, for me, over s3. But I think that's as I only got into AF at the very end of s1 (mountain & arctic baby!!!!) so s2 and then into s3 were my period. But then I'm a tad younger than some too at 40?

45 here, young buggers. I hung on a lot longer. I never knew S1 existed, never saw any of it in NZ. So, s2 and s3 for me.
