Just a question about forum rules relating to a custom.

Posted in Custom Workstation

Is it allowed to run an open bid of sorts in the trading threads? Like post a topic, say, set a time limit like 4 days and at the end of it you'll look through the thread for the best offer. I'm selling a custom I hold very dear to me and Ebay just doesn't seem the way to go. This is a place of collectors and all and I'd feel better if it went to someone that will actually keep it in good condition.

Actually I have to finish some improvements on said figure, but he's 99% complete, just doing some sealing here and there. Then pictures, going to post him and then he's up for grabs... >.< I really don't want to let him go, but he's the only one I've made worth money.

if it has a sentimental value for you, then sir pock is right, you shouldn't sell it... you'll just regret it one day...
I have some customs that I won't even consider selling even if I have to eat from the garbage bin or beg for money... hehe! coz I treat them like my own kids... customs that I've poured more than what I would normally do for other custom projects... coz it would really hurt me if I sell it and found out that the buyer broke it or gave it to his/her kid brother to play with...

if you need money, then maybe you could just make a character that's easy to make and also popular and then sell it on e-bay... at least you've set your mind that you're making that fig so that you can sell it and make money...

its really hard to sell a figure if you made it for the purpose of adding it to your own collection coz of the "attachment" thing/sentimental value...

Just stick it on Ebay. Many more people will see it and the bids will be higher. Ebay will tell the true cost of the custom. If someone on Ebay buys it, most likely they will treat it with care.

Once you sell a custom you have no controll over what will happen to it so if you don't want anything to happen kepe it.

I guess I need to invest in red paint then, I've noticed some Dead Pools garnering ridiculous prices. O.o If I can maybe pull off a good one, well... I do have some new parts coming in, so that is a highly likely situation.

It's not that I don't want to sell him, it's that I'm more afraid of him getting torn up somewhere along the process or falling into the hands of someone that might not know how much I poured into him. Heh, I'm pretty much hoping I can demand a price tag and then a glass case be constructed around him. lol

If you don't want to sell it than you shoodn't. If you just want to make something to sell make a DP. Those alwese sell. I regret selling some of my early customs.
