Buying 7 and maybe a 3 sometimes.

As long as nothing is broken and the box is functional/in tact-it's all good. I don't like (can't) to spend a lot.

Maybe a 3 as well- if the defects are like a chip on the back or ankle... nothing that takes away from display view. Nothing that requires glue.. ect

Selling- 1, 2, 3.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

I'm a 7, with shades of 1, 5 and 8 in there every now and again.

--

I've only sold a couple pieces, but I lean more towards 2 and 3. I don't think of myself as above going with 1, but truthfully, I'd rather box and store a piece before actively losing money on it.

The one exception was when I wanted to unload a popular F4F piece awhile back. I sat on it for a bit, knowing full well that it was just accruing value the longer I held off. Still made a nice profit at a reasonable price, but I definitely could have waited longer and milked that thing for every last drop if I wanted to.

This is like confession for collectors.

Buying
1,3,7 depends on age and what I am willing to pay

selling
1,2,3

Depends on what its selling for if I dont want it anymore and its value has tanked I take what I can get,

If something has sky rocked in price I will sell if for the profit if it does not fit in with my collection or I have other stuff I like better

buying

3 can always get it repaired luckily this is rarely the case

6 i don't believe in aftermarket prices. always someone that needs quick cash and i've lucked out most of the times. never be afraid of low balling.


selling

never sold but i will be

2

what ever i paid for the statue thats what you will pay nothing more nothing less. even if it is the grail of grails. if someone can enjoy the statue like i did then i'm happy.

5. JACK UP THE SHIPPING PRICES
Honestly, I absolutey refuse to buy from sellers that use the super high shipping sales methods. For example if someone was selling a statue for $500 with free shipping and another guy was selling the statue for $350 + $125 shipping, I would actually pay the extra $25 and buy from the seller with free shipping or charging actual shipping charges.

Basically, I just won't buy from sellers that try and make money on shipping. eBay actually started charging final seller fee's on the shipping charges themselves due to sellers using this method of selling. Sellers were basically trying to circumvent eBay's final seller fee's by charged less for the item and more for the shipping. I absolutely despise that sales model, mosty because itsa bit decieving and its made buying overseas more expensive. In fact, some sellers have stopped shipping internationally due to this very reason. So again, I just don't buy from those kinds of sellers. I would honestly rather pay a bit more and buy from a seller with actual shipping charges.

BUYING

1. THE STATUE HAS TO BE MINT PERFECT FROM ALL ANGLES...EVEN UNDER THE FEET AND BASE.

2. THE BOX, TISSUE, STYROFOAM MOLD, ALL AROUND MINTY MINT.

3. GET A STATUE WITH MINOR DEFECTS AT A SUPER LOW PRICE.

4. WILL PAY TOP DOLLAR FOR A PERFECT MINTY STATUE.

5. NOT ONLY FROM A DISPLAY VIEW {10 INCHES AWAY} IT HAS TO BE MINTY MINT UP CLOSE IN MY HANDS.

6. THE LOW BALLER!!...FOR EXAMPLE A CHROME SILVER SURFER GOES FOR A AVERAGE BTWN 550 TO 625....AND THE LOW BALLER WERE OFFER 375 SHIPPED!... I HAVE ENCOUNTERD ALOT OF GUYS LIKE THIS.

7. IT LOOKS GREAT, BOX IS GOOD, AND FROM A DISPLAY VIEW IN MY SHOWCASE IT LOOKS EXCELLENT...AS OF THE BOX..FAIR IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME.

8. EXAMING YOUR STATUE WITH A FLASH LITE.

....im sure there are more....and these are just a few.

SELLING

1. WILL TAKE A LOSS... I NEED THE MONEY.

2. WILL TRY TO MAKE MY MONEY BACK, AND MAKE OUT EVEN FOR WHAT I PAID FOR IT.

3. WILL TRY TO MAKE A LITTLE PROFIT. {DUE TO WHAT THE STATUE IS GOING FOR}

4. THE CROOK!...THAT WANTS TO MAKE ...NOT A PROFIT A KILLING!!...AND SELL A STATUE FOR TRIPLE THE AMOUNT WHEN IT GOES FOR 30% BELOW RETAIL.

5. JACK UP THE SHIPPING PRICES
