PC - Euro exclusives and Mimic
« on: May 15, 2017, 04:05:03 PM »
Old collector, needing to downsize dramatically. I don't have time to sell every pony individually, so I will probably craigslist the bulk of the collection and hope there's local interest (are there any other suggestions for this? I have a bunch of playsets so shipping costs would be astronomical.)

Anyway, I'll be putting up a sales post sometime soon for the more HTF ponies in the collection. I'm still going through the collection to figure out what I have--it's all been boxed up so long... but can I get a price check on these?

Mimic with original brush and ribbon - Is she still as astronomically expensive as she used to be?

UK Baby Bridesmaid

German NBBE Babies - Cherries Jubilee, Buttons, Hopscotch & Honeycomb

Tutti Frutti and accessories

Wedding Bells Confetti

Mountain Boy Ponies - I think I have Ice Crystal, Sunburst and Tornado rattling around somewhere in OK condition (some tail rust and frizzy hair, that kind of thing.)

Thanks very much!

Mimic is still expensive.
Maybe think of selling your ponies by lots or series, it can help.

My Mimic with brush/ribbon was $106 I think? She has some pony polish on her hooves but otherwise really nice shape.

NBBE German Babies (depending on condition):

Cherries & Honeycomb - between £25-£35 (ish)  :huh:

Hopscotch & Buttons - Normally around £35 - £45. Buttons tends to be the most expensive out of the set.

Mountain Boys:

These are all over the place right now, although I would say prices have fallen this year from what they were last year.

Sunburst - £55-£75
Tornado - Can be as low as £40 and as high as £120, especially if he still has pink hair.
Ice Crystal - At least £50 with a few marks, as high as £150 in mint condition.

I only know that Mimic and Baby Buttons are expensive.

A person put Ice Crystal on eBay.uk for £101.99

I find it very frustrating that I can't get ahold of the ones I need when they are too expensive.

People are just so greedy with the price for a pony.  :enraged:

A mother pony can be protective of her young just like dogs.

Who wants to changed this sig into ponies?

bright rabbit 1, I see what you mean.

A bunch of sellers, often on sites like ebay, list crazy high prices with BuyItNow. Because they are probably uneducated about a pony's value, but they've probably heard ponies can be worth alot, and they don't want to miss out on earning one cent. They don't bother checking out collectors sites to research, or they may be hoping their specific pony has some kind of rare variation, so they try their luck and hope people will buy it.

The downside for all of us, is when those auctions sit on ebay for months with no purchase, and give other people who are also uneducated about pony values the wrong idea. In the longrun it may even drive up the prices for less rare ponies.

Also, silly jokesites like Buzzfeed can be quite misleading, with having extremely many poorly researched articles like "See how much your 80's toys are worth today", where they don't list auctions of purchased ponies, but only unsold BuyItNow auctions with the most crazy prices.

But let me add the seller's perspective aswell, that many ponies that are quite rare, aswell as in perfect condition, with all accessories, and from wellknown sellers, can be quite hard to sell because many buyers still expect to buy absolutely anything for less than a dollar. So, buying and selling ponies can be quite a slap in the face, and I guess pony collectors have to have alot of patience to find logical prices, from both a seller's and buyer's perspective. The biggest problem to collect and sell MLP is probably how many there are, and how hard it is to figure out logical values. But luckily there are some really great collectors sites out there.

Is there a local pony meet near you in Virginia? I'm not sure if they have a meet, but that would be a great way to sell them. You could always post a "pony garage sale" here, advertising that you have these ponies and will be home to sell them at a certain time- you could make a party of it! And then semi-local collectors could make the drive to your house and shop for ponies. Maybe more work than you are looking for.

The Pony Fair is in Rhode Island (is that right? I think it's right) this year- you might be able to attend that and get some great sales, too.

Thanks for the ideas! I don't yet know how much time I will have this summer... I may not have the time to invest in setting up a garage sale--I almost certainly can't make it to Rhode Island. But it's something that never even occurred to me, and I'll definitely keep it in mind. I'm still trying to find the couple of hours I need to sit down and sort through the collection properly.

Sorry to hear of your need to downsize...  I'm looking to upgrade my Sunburst with a not so cancerous one, depending on condition of course.

Mimic is crazy expensive. Depending on condition ---- $40 in bait condition up to $200 in NM with pink stripe. Average around $80-125. That being said one sold on ebay for nearly $500 recently. Ebay is going to be your best bet most likely for Mimic, but their fees take about 12-15% of your sale price, selling here won't cost you a thing (except paypal fees).
