Hello,

A friend of a friend passed away and she has a ton of toy stuff to deal with. By "toys" i mean 1:6 scale male figures in military ware. Also tons and tons and tons of clothes for these dolls as well as guns, knives, helmets, binoculars shoes and other stuff.
I have no idea what the value is. Should I sell them individually? Sell the entire collection as a whole. Where can I go to find out what the stuff is worth and best options? IMG_3438.jpg IMG_3439.jpg IMG_3440.jpg IMG_3441.jpg IMG_3442.jpg IMG_3443.jpg

I would suggest selling them individually or in lots. this place is good place to get appraising on items. I would also suggest auctioning some of them off.
Sometimes it's better to wait for them to get rarer and sell them as rarer collectibles. Also look around online for the items you are selling and see how much they are going for, you can get a pretty good Idea for what to price them at. You can try eBay that's where I get most of my 1/6th scale action figures and parts, there's lots of 1/6th scale figures there.

Anything still in the packaging will be a lot easier to deal with and sell, as a quick search online will yield some price results with the in package labeling. Prices can range all over, even from day to day, but some brands or specific figures can fetch a really good price now. In that first picture I see 2 packaged sets by DiD (Dragon In Dreams), one of the Multicam uniform accessory sets, and the ACU/UCP uniform accessory sets. Those tended to sell between $25 and 40 USD each, when they first released, if my memory is good, as an example.

For loose gear, you start a thread and post pictures here to ask what the items are before selling. Or just post them up online, here or Ebay etc.... and set a price or auction them off. You could sell here as well, but traffic for the Sale and Trade area has been slow the last few years, and may not be the best avenue to get rid of things. Plus, you need to have a minimum number of posts on the board to show you are an active community member to be able to use the area.

A collection that large will take time to go through, and some serious dedication to sell. From personal experience, it could literally take years to sell it all off, especially once you get into the loose parts and kitbashed figures. You may want to see if some retailers would be interested in buying the lot of it in one go, and let them deal with retail end of it. There are a few retailers in the U.S. that would probably be willing to pick up a collection that large. It depends on where you're located, and what the collection is like really.

If you have any questions on specifics, just send me a message, and I would be willing to help out.
