Thought I make a fun topic to see what people think or feel what value their collection might be. I am not asking what the value is. But more like what you would be willing to let it go for.

I personally haven't been into the "official" pony collecting for that long, but I do have some very valuable ponies. I enjoy my collection a lot. In the beginning I bought a lot off of Ebay, not knowing about Global Shipping Program etc. So I often paid loads of shipping cost. If I would have started now I would have done it different. Take it more slowly instead of going on a shopping spree on Ebay and anywhere you can buy Ponies. I think the shipping cost I've paid for all my ponies is about 50/50. I don't want to get rid of my collection for many years. But if I have to make a choice right now, I think I would say between 6000 and 7000 euro. Considering the value of the ponies, shipping cost and emotional value.

I'd like to hear about yours.

What's the Global Shipping Program?

Hmmm...Idk, absolutely no less than $5000 off the top of my head, but probably more than that if I actually sat down to figure in all I have.  That's only for the G1s, mind you and not including any shipping/packing, etc.  I would need a little more thought to estimate for all 4 generations.

I was thinking this myself!  Half of my collection has been packed up for years. I'm just unpacking,  cleaning and putting some  up for sale now. I'm thinking of trying to sell half of my ponies. But it's a pain.

I'd let the whole lot go for $2,000 I think. That's enough for a nice vacation and maybe even a deposit for my next apartment. That would be super helpful. Plus Id be free of a lot weight. It's going to be a few years until I have a house and space for my collection. It's kind of a waste  Not that I wouldn't miss them dearly.

Anybody with money to spare want an instant collection? ; )


Thank you babyblueducky!

Global Shipping Program is a shipping method being used by (sadly) a lot of sellers on Ebay lately. It's getting more and more popular. But in fact it is waaaaaay more expensive for buyers. Instead of people going to a postoffice to calculate what shipping actually cost to a specific country. Ebay takes care of that an estimates how much it would be, plus they make a profit off of it. Which makes the method super expensive for buyers.

I didn't know about this in the beginning and I bought so much from sellers who used it. I regret that. I could have been rich or richer in ponies if I paid more attention to it. But I know now and I rarely buy from people who use the Global Shipping Program. Simply because I refuse to pay 2 sometimes even 3 times the actual shipping cost for 1 Pony. Oh and the worst thing. The Global Shipping Program doesn't do combined shipping, so you pay for each pony seperate... -_-

I wouldn't sell the whole collection for any amount so for me an academic question. No amount of money supersedes nostalgia for me. Every other collection or thing would go first. I love rehoming doubles, but I don't sell my childhood ponies and I have no interest in parting with the vast majorityof the others.. I am hoping I live to a good enough age that they will be old and important enough to interest a museum so they can stay together  (if they don't deteriorate) even after I have gone, and make other people happy instead :D

You can pry them out of my cold, dead hands.
Or for 10,000,000$.  Either is acceptable.

I have to say. Selling my collection automatically excludes my childhood ponies. I would never sell those. I am too attached to them.

If I happen to have my collection untill I die. My son will inherrit them. He is free to do with them as he pleases. I hope he would take care of them (he is already growing up with pony love, so he is learning to value them :)) but I wouldn't mind him selling them to save for a goal in the future. I'm still a mom afterall :blush:

Oh, I remember being asked to participate in this when it first came out.  I declined, and have never used it.  Ridiculous.

Same here I second that. They are too precious for me to give up. :/

Hmmmm what I have left? I'll take $200 for the rest of my playsets and loose ponies. 

With the exception of my childhood herd, those have been passed along to DD and they're not leaving...

i wouldn't want to let go of my collection under any circumstances, but i think if needs were dire i might let it go for 300-500$. its probably only worth about 250$ tops.
