This is going to be my first product in my store. (college bound). It is about
11.5 ounces of mini fig parts of all kinds. I did my best to separate them out
in the pics. What you see in the pics is exactly how I plan to package them.
I came up with about 96 body’s or body parts. 38 heads. 52 helmets, hair hat
type head gear. There is also a small pile of miscellaneous mini fig parts.

I am going to put it in my store as bulk mini fig parts the problem is I have
absolutely no clue where to price it. I have a lot more to put in the store
but this is going to be my first item. Next In my inventory is going to be random
LEGO pieces by the pound. Any ideas on how to price that? They are all from
sets from 2009 through 2014. They were put together but never played with so
they are in excellent condition. Any help with how I should price this fairly
would be greatly appreciated.

I see complete minifigs in there.

You would get much higher price if you list the complete figures as individual
items in your shop.

Of course this is also a bit more work, both for the listing and the handling
of orders.

Thanks MikMo. We thought there might be but we have over 225 mini figs to list
next and we just thought we had it. Better for the buyer then. It’s going
to be our (my son and I) first item in our store college bound then we have
about 39 pounds of pieces and well over two hundred mini figs to list. What
price would you list this lot at as it is now? What would you charge for pieces
by the pound? BTW thank you for your reply. We just want to create fair deals
for us and the buyer.

For pieces by the pound, $5 per pound and they'll go fast. And uh, lemme
know when you list them cause I might be interested. XD

I definitely will. Shipping costs seem so high.

Hi!


You really should at minimun pull those spongebob parts and figs, and the nicer
capes (and the horse) and list those separately. The hat alone of that flying
dutchman fig is worth $3-5. You will be surprised what some things part out to.
I also see some space police 3 stuff that is just starting to sell better.


I only sell this sort of thing in bulk if I can't identify the items quick
enough to make it worth while.

The honestly answer is that you should list things of unknown value on an auction
site, or at least refer to one (use the sold listings) to get an idea of pricing.



Or sell it all to me.


Hahah, best of luck!
