    Geez...

    Um, probably have around $3000 in stock blaster's at this point in time, and around $2500 in personal modded blaster's (re-sale value). Another $200 or so in clips, and probably somewhere around $900 in modding materials (which doesn't really count... haha).

    I am sitting at just over $300 purchase value, not adding value for mods. This value is steadily rising. Going to need another cabinet real soon

    Not a lot. I estimated around $320, including my dart stash. I suppose it's hard to assume the value of some of the blasters that are still in stock. I know my AT2K will keep rising in value, granted I don't eff it up.

    My BBUMB, I value quite a bit but I reckon it's only worth about $15. So I suppose the market value is very different from the value you think it is. My Triple Shot is probably worth about $40 but IMO it's not worth selling for that price.

    EDIT: forgot my clips.. that bumps it up to about 370. lol still not a lot.

    EDIT EDIT: and the Vulcan.. and I may have underestimated my dart collection. I reckon it'd be around 450.

    And wait there's more.. I reckon it's jumped up to about 550 with my new purchases

    Somehow i doubt that...

    I would say that I'm currently hitting about $1200 purchase value. I'm honestly trying to cut back, But the collector in me wants to buy more.

    How do you put a price on a modded blaster? I thought about it the other day. I was thinking if i got bored sometime, i would mod a blaster just to sell on ebay for the hell of it, and see what i got, or what people would think its worth from say a bid.

    But damn i wouldnt know what to charge..
    Surely you cant price it on what you've spent on it?
    But if its rare....how much would someone pay for a modded RFSG?
    So really only stock prices can be added.

    It's really not that hard to put a price on a modded blaster.

    Cost of blaster + cost of materials + cost of consmables + labour.

    Currently, I'm working on about $7/hr for labour, which is fricking cheap, but that will probably change very shortly to at least $10/hr.

    I've already been offered $250 for a doomsayer commission, which is pretty fair really.

    $110 for blaster, $25 for materials, $15 for consumables, $40 for paint and stencilling, and 6 hrs labour @ $10/hr.

    Cheers,

    That's pretty much how I set the prices for all my commissions, except for paint jobs...

    I'm ripping myself off severely in that department:

    $40 for LShot PJ -

    $5 for primer
    $10 for rattle cans
    $5 for clear topcoat
    $5 for consumables
    Leaves $15 for around 8 hrs of labour...

    Anyway, back on-topic, like SS has mentioned, any chance on getting the poll fixed so we can vote if over $2K?

    Cheers,

    I'm thinking $650-1000, depending on the prices you set on the blasters and other stuff.

    $750 approx for just blasters (with my pricing scheme).
    Up to $950 including the extra bits and pieces which didn't come with the blasters.
    Maybe $1000 with material and labour costs for mods.


    OK, that was way optimistic.
    Blasters valued around $610.
    Dart refills maybe $75.
    Extra Nerf kits around $90.
    Various other things around $80.
    Labour and other mod materials $50 at most.

    So about $900 total.

    My Lego collections is still worth maybe 14-17 times my Nerf collection ($11,000 or so according to Brickset - missing costs for lots of sets, so maybe $13,000-$14,000?).

    So where do I vote?

    Around $765, if:
    - 4B's are $20 (that's what I got mine for)
    - Furyfire 2-pack is $40

    Excludes the AA-D converters and the 4.2v Trustfire batteries.
    Also excludes labour and cost of materials (which would be like $10 anyway) for the mods.

    So where do I vote?

    Round it to a 1000

    As much as Luke is trolling (you forgot your question mark, buddy) he has a point. Is a Stampede still valued at $79? Or to put it more generally, is your blaster still worth the same a few months after you've bought it? After a few hundred darts have been shot through it and if BNIB versions are on sale in KMart/Target/etc.

    If this thread is REALLY important, there could be an agreed pricing list so everyone is sort of "Standardized"
