Yes, I'm not a flipper by any means but when I do sell a statue now, I consider it a win to just get my money back on a lot of pieces. The bubble is close to bursting.

I understand that statues in the past were cheaper but the quality and complexity just were nowhere close to what exist today. I rather pay more for superior product this hulk is one on the best I only wish xm could sell direct. I also don't care about resale value

I donít see quality as improved at all. Rather the opposite Ė as the companies try to cut corners to save money I think quality has gone the other way.

Compare some of those old statues to things like thanos on thron or anything xm showed us this week....... you still think those old statues measure up??

Quality control maybe isn't as good as it was, but the quality itself is better in other words the new statues that do come as intended are far superior in sculpt and complexity... just look at what has been announced/released within the last few months

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

XM makes top of the class product. It's so good nothing comes close. It's just being able to get all those pieces now has become impossible. Prime example I'm a huge Spiderman fan so for me to collect that line alone :

Venom
Myseterio
Carnage
Kingpin
Kraven
Vulture
Electro
Scorpion
Mary Jane
Spider Gwen
Spiderman
Lizard
Doc Ock
Sand Man

Let's say these are 1K each and they are not you're at 14K without shipping and import . A tonne of money so I'm forced to pick and choose. In Canadian dollars that group would cost me over 20000.00 with shipping and extras.

Cut corners in what way? Any examples you are referring to?

Cost $20,000 to buy

Cost $5,000 - $10,000 to sell.

Save your money.

The secondary market and statues sale groups are FLOODED with these things.
