And only seven hundred thousand bucks. You'd have to spend a little time working out values of what's in all the pics before splashing out I reckon. My house cost less than that.

Yeah, if he listed them individually more people with less money (like me)

He can't list it all individually, because he'd be his own wost enemy.
The sheer number of Galoob RingWraiths & horses alone in that collections would have to be listed for monts to unload.

He has multiple loose AND boxed specimens of everything.

I agree with Baz. This seller is a bit naive and I don't reckon the lot will sell. He could have broken it down some. There are some valuable pieces but I think the lot is overpriced.

Check these out:

What a load of cack. Yeah I really want to bid on that pile of stuff regardless of what it is and whether it's broken. They couldn't even be arsed to separate it out. There were a couple of big lots of Neos, 99s and reissue Shonens on YJ recently just shoved in cardboard boxes, and the spare hands were in a separate lot from the figures.

Wouldn't be the first time a seller on ebay turned out to be a wanker.

There are loads of people who like to show off their stuffto the world.
I prefer the Japanese way. they show theor good stuff IN THE BACKGROUND of photos.

Could be his wife gave him the ultimatum that he had to put it up for sale.
Now he technically held up his part of the bargain.

As far as the cybo stuff - seen that a lot with cybo and micro stuff.
broken up incorrectly.

Hopefully the original collector is still alive and it isn't his widow selling it off.

When I bought my mego alter egos figures, I had to buy them twice due to parts being separated. It reallt sucked.

Sounds like YOU, Guy! Always gotta scrutinize what's in the background in yours, too. That's what makes them some of the best posts.

I love listings like this. You can almost see the guy buying up stuff for decades and constantly telling friends and family, "This stuff will be worth something!" And then you know something has happened where they decided to "cash in" and basically just say "Look at this! Give me a jillion dollars!"

If it were actually worth that much, a reseller or auction house would gladly deal with selling it off piece by piece and just take a small fee for the work.

The fact he's listing like this shows he's either (1) dense or (2) just showing off his collection. You know some people list things with crazy prices just to show of right?
