If I was you I'd sit on it for a month or so. Then if you still feel like getting rid of them go for it.

 

I don't know what your issues are but that's my advice.

i don't really have an issue just with dcuc and my superman figure habit and movie masters and all the other lines that i collect or am trying to catch up on is one thing and like i said i liked the foil cards and there not doing it anymore just got me out of the joe figure mood like i may keep a few like trakker but i guess and i hate to say this but i am just kinda over it. Dont get me wrong i love my joes but there are just other things out there i would like.

 

And if my joes can find a good home where they would be loved as i have loved them then so be it. But i am trying to find marvel legends deadpool and Mcfarlane spiderman and some dc superheroes figures and he man and some DCUC figures i just don't really have time to hunt down joes like when the 25th line started

Dude... Endeavor to Persevere my friend. You'll only end up regretting it in the long run and then try to recollect that which you gave up.

I agree that you should sit on it until movie time, it'll give you an opportunity to make sure that you're doing what you want and you'll probably make more money off of them. The 25th figures should see a small increase in value once the movie stuff takes over.

 

I've had financial issues which have forced me to sell toys that I wish I hadn't. I used to have all the 25th variants and exclusives, both PDDs, Roddy, Black Timber, Yellow Stalker, etc.... I really wish I had been able to find another way and not have sold them. My advice is to take some time to think about what it is you love about the line, and whether it's an enduring feeling. If so, take the time to find the rest that you don't have and bask in the whole collection.

Let me tell ya man, take it from someone who knows: Keep 'em. I've sold a couple of 25th collections myself already, and I've come to really regret it. I've done the same thing you're doing, going through a period where I'm bored or tired with it and want other things, and then you talk yourself into thinking the only way your gonna get the stuff you want is to sell what you have. You can always find what you're wanting now later, trust me. If you sell it you're just gonna end up wanting it back and struggling to get it back later down the line, for double and triple the price maybe. Now I've not bought back an entire collection; I've bought a couple of choice cases that had assortments I wanted, and over the past few months whenever I've wanted to buy something else, and I've been once again tempted to sell my Joes, I just fight the urge and leave them in their boxes stored away, and I remember the appreciation I have for the select few favorites I have on mint cardbacks, and the temptation always passes and I realize I'm glad I didn't sell...again. (lol)

 

So take it from me man; you've obviously bought these things because you enjoy them, and just because those feelings of nostalgia or whatever your feelings are comes and goes, don't think you're over it and sell them, because those feelings of nostalgia will return. Believe me, you WILL regret it later if you sell them. I promise. Just do like I do and save a little here and there to get whatever else your wanting instead of selling your stuff.

Hey 'shmo, man I hope you didn't think I was preachin' at ya. I didn't mean to come across that way. I just want you to realize I did the exact same thing not long ago, and I ended-up regretting it in the end. And I mulled and agonized over it as well. If money's not a pressing matter right now, just sit on them awhile. Really give yourself time to completely make up your mind. If you're anything like me, the feelings of nostalgia and joy you feel when having them come back just about as strongly as the feelings of being tired of them or the urge to sell them to make money.

 

I just hope as a fellow collector 'shmo, that whatever you decide to do it makes you happy man, seriously. Good luck!

Get the black McFarlane Spidey with street light that came out late last year, and just drybrush on some blue paint.. There ya go!!!

 

What would i do that for joe? sorry i am lost on this one Never mind brain fart i did pick up the newset Mcfarlane spidy from the spiderman line thats out now but he has the black n red suit. i got it a few nights ago. Not quit the same but better than paying 100 bucks for on on e bay

 

I am a small time customiser not got the skillz to redo a whole figure like some of you out there although i did take the one i just got and added some flate white to the eyes and some black ink to fill in the lines some. But i do still want the blue n red suit one
