I guess one question I would have to ask is compared to what you paid for your figures were you able to at least make profit of what you had to put out to get your entire collection.
I was not able to make a profit, but more or less broke even. Although this was partly because I had some rare figures like non-phased Vision that sold for very high and offset the losses. That figure alone sold for $78, loose. Of course, that is the exception, in most auctions I took a loss.
