I've purchased items through them, but no statues although I've seen statues and pop figures listed.

You can also try Craigslist. I purchased a Freddy PF a couple of yrs ago there and it's no Bull. You see your purchase and give money for merchandise.

I'm scared of Craigslist. I think some Dexter type dude is gonna come and kill me by beating me to death with my statue. I'm scared to buy from there too. End up a lamp shade in some dudes apartment.

And by deal I mean they want it for well below retail. I don't want to sell my stuff but there are 1 or 2 I'd like to sell but I don't know where to sell them.
Yeah I might get a table at one of these small comicons and try my luck. Those tables are pretty cheap. Maybe I'll get lucky

I downloaded Macari - they had some busts on there for cheap. And a few broken statues. I might try them. Trying to flip this Carol Danvers

Ed your story is one of the reasons why I didn't post my stuff for sale on eBay.

That's not a bad idea. I could always sell to Midtown comics but they kind of rip you off too. They're the Gamestop of statues and comics.
