Re: How best to sell off collection? In pieces or as the boxed set?
I am not an expert on military figures by any means, and not familiar with that particular market, but I do agree that trying at *first* to sell off boxed sets as full sets is probably best, especially since your purpose is to downsize. You can try that first and then see how things go from there. I feel it is best to try that first simply because, as you say, selling individual parts is indeed tedious, and you could end up with just lots of loose items that never sell. It can be hard to take a loss on a full boxed figure that isn't worth as much now, but you never know, there could be some boxed figures that sell for more than what you think, so it might even out a bit in the long run.
A lot of this depends on how quickly you want to sell off everything, and if you are happy to do it gradually, then I'd say to just do a bit of searching around to see what the things you are selling are currently going for, and then decide what is the absolute lowest you'd be willing to go on those. You can then structure your listings around this -- some you may be able to easily sell at a higher price straight away, some you might have to put up as auctions and best offers and see what happens.
For any loose items you want rid of, then of course, just sell them individually, or in lots, as was already suggested above. But imo, try not to break up the boxed figures or sets as this will only hamper your downsizing, since you could end up with lots of unsold loose bits floating around.
