You were obviously a spoilt little bastard 😂

I was thinking...."a couple of grand ?? Just how many toys did this lad get ?!"

I wouldn't say spoilt! I was an only child so perhaps my parents overcompensated with a few extra toys but I didn't get everything I asked for! A few extra Thundercats figures must have worked out cheaper than having another kid though! 

In terms of the toys @mottaloo, you'd be surprised how much they sell for now! 4x TMHT - £100 on ebay! He-Man, with a chewed hand, fetched £45. Skeletor was £50 and was missing his weapon. There are people out there who will pay a lot of retro toys.

I’ve got loads of that shit in my parents lift, all mega played with though.  I was assuming yours were pristine and boxed based on the amounts you were getting.

All mine were mega played with as well. No boxes. Castle Greyskull was a wreck, a number of the figures had chewed limbs and missing weapons. Some of the figures (Man-E-Faces i'm looking at you) couldn't even stand as the elastic in the joints had gone. The later figures I had (Thundercats and TMHT) were in better condition as I must have grown out of eating my toys at that point! Some of the lesser known He-Man figures might only fetch £10-£20 each but still decent amounts. 

Boxed and pristine ones will fetch a lot. I saw a boxed He-Man, Teela and Ram Man go for 1200 USD

My Mrs sold a bundle of her old Polly pockets for about £150 in the summer.

I'm so glad my Mum threw out all my old toys. Can we please change the subject? 

I’ve just posted a similar story in the ‘things that piss you off’ thread. 
 

The only saving grace here is that I managed to sell my son’s Lego for a good few hundred quid when he’d grown out of it. Lesson’s learnt the hard way, are seldom forgot.

Tbh I’m probably the kind of sad bastard that would be buying these vintage toys rather than selling them.

I must admit I did have a few pangs of sellers regret.... seeing all the old figures at my folks house reminded me how much I used to love them. However, what am I going to do with them if they're not sold? Put them back in a box for another 20 years? I think we've made the right decision!

Was just about to give you a like and then read the 2nd bit... 

I had a butt load of Lego too! 

Next someone is going to say Magic the Gathering cards from the 90s are worth money to.
