Maybe you purchased your GI Joe toys specifically to be used as toys. Maybe you bought them as an investment into collectibles. Either way, the longer you own them the more you’ll start to wonder how much they’re worth and if you should sell them.
If and when you do decide to sell your GI Joe action figure toys, here are the places we suggest you consider based on what you’re looking for, what you’re selling and what matters to you most:
Table of Contents
eBay is the largest online marketplace for buying and selling almost anything, so most people think of eBay as the first and only option. Unfortunately most people underestimate the work it takes to successfully sell something on eBay. Between taking the pictures, writing the descriptions, answering the questions and waiting for bids, the time investment simply isn’t worth it for most people.
Local Collectibles Store
Selling to a local collectibles store can be hit-or-miss based on a few factors. How large is the collectibles store and how large of a network do they have? They will only make a strong offer on your GI Joe toys if they are confident they can sell them quickly and for a good price. Where are they located? If they are located in a sparsely populated area, they may not be able to sell them quick enough to offer you a good price.
Local Pawn Shop
Pawn shops work on the same principles of collectibles store, but their clientele is not specifically looking for collectible toys necessarily, so the general rule of thumb is that a pawn shop will offer less money for your items than a specialized buyer would. With that being said, pawn shops are more common in many places, so if you’re in need of cash fast and don’t have access to a collectibles store, a pawn shop may work for you if you’re happy with a fast transaction but not necessarily a top-dollar one.
How Can You Sell Your GI Joe Toys For Fast Cash?
If selling your GI Joes for fast cash is your top priority, you’ll want to strongly consider places where you can sell them on the spot. This would include local places like pawn shops and collectibles. As mentioned before, just be aware that this certainly won’t be the best price you can sell them for, but that’s why selling fast and selling at the highest price possible are always at odds with each other.
How Can You Sell Your GI Joe Toys For The Highest Price Possible?
If you want to sell your GI Joes for the best price possible, then you’ll want to consider selling them directly to other collectors. You can do this through marketplaces like eBay and Facebook Marketplace, or if you have a large local network you may be able to find willing buyers at local events. Remember, this is certainly not the quickest, easiest or most passive way to sell your GI Joes, but it will give you the best opportunity at selling them for as much as you can.
