Title: Night Glider?! And did I do good?
Post by: Zest on February 16, 2013, 08:40:06 PM
Well I hope it's okay I basically smooshed two topics together, so first:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-1984-MY-LITTLE-PONY-TWICE-AS-FANCY-PONY-NIGHT-GLIDER-ADULT-PONY-/281062869828?item=281062869828&ViewItem=&ssPageName=ADME%3AB%3AWNA%3AUS%3A1123&nma=true&si=yxEsw3XxZ3l8HN9dh2B5GVQB%252BoY%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

Is... is Night Glider really worth that much?! :drunk: I was watching this auction and DANG I don't remember NG going for that much!

And next... I just bought a Dutch Heart pony on a lBIN auction for $16 + shipping. Did I do good? ;3; She's pretty high on my wants list and when I say a BIN for $16 I jumped on it.

From the description she seems to be in pretty nice condition save for a tail/mane trime, but it's nothing that's too choppy or anything.

I think that is a little on the high side for Night Glider but it seems that prices fluctuate quite a bit.  Two weeks ago I ended up winning an auction for a glimmer wings prototype and that SAME exact prototype ended up selling a few days ago for $30 less!!!! :doh:  >_<

The $16 dutch pony sounds like a super deal!!!  :biggrin:

Wow, that seems really high for Night Glider (gorgeous though she may be!). Lucky seller!

Seems a bit high :shocked: I just bought a Night Glider on here that is in EXCELLENT condition for $20 :lol:
I guess it depends on how badly someone wants her but honestly I'm sure you could find her for way less if you just keep an eye out on there and on here :)

I got my Night Glider in a lot, and I paid about $3 per pony, so yay me, but HOLY COW that's high... around $30 seems to be the average for her normally... plus $43 shipping, I hope they bought other items and combined shipping, cos otherwise that's like, four times her worth all up.. gosh I wonder if that buyer wants an army, LOL.. I'd sell her mine and buy her again and mimic, heh.

$16 for Heart Pony *has heart palpatations and dies* You lucky thing!!!! This is such a crazy topic... insanity all around...

Wow I didn't pay much more than $15 for my Night Glider...someone really wanted that one!

That is a good deal for Dutch Heart : )

Night Glider seems high to me, too.  I got mine at a thrift store but I would've guessed $25-ish?

That sounds like an excellent price for the Dutchie, though.  :)

Ahh, I'm excited for Dutchie, thanks you guys! ;3;

And wow, Night Glider's actually gone down in price a lot since I got her. O: I just have a habit of always watching lots/auctions that have her, I only wish I could afford an army, though! /w\

The auction was removed by the time I looked at it...what did she go for?
And congrats on Dutch Heart! I love a good deal!

I've got a minty Night Glider that I paid about $22 for, if I remember correctly. She's a lovely pony but not quite worth $80 imo... :drunk: OTOH, ponies tend to be worth the price people are willing to pay, so if someone wants her that much, why not.

Congrats on the Dutch Heart, I agree that $16 on her is a good price.

No, you did not do "good".  You did well.  :-p

Holy Karp... that's an expensive pony! :blink:  Especially since she didn't look so very minty or anything...

Oh well... economics at work, I suppose.

(And yes, you did amazingly well!  Dutch Heart pony at $16? :cheer:  Congrats!)

There are no RRPs on G1 ponies after all and if a buyer wants a pony so much I personally don't have an issue with someone spending over the odds - heck I know there are some ponies and accessories that I have seriously over spent on at auction or BIN but at the time I was fortunate to have the money and I wanted :P. Yes, it is much higher than average but then again she also sells for lower than average and a lot of the prices mentioned here for her are on the low side - so I guess its hit or miss and luck if you get a bargain or have to over spend sometimes.

And wow what a fantastic price you got Heart for! Congrats!! :)

Well done on Dutch Hearth pony!  :frolic:
I´ve got my mint Night Glider for 20 euros some years ago. This auction looks like a biding war to me.

Eighty-one frickin' dollars for Night Glider?  I think I got mine for 20 or 30 bucks a while back.
