i dont think it looks messy anymore. its really funny, but the longer you look at it the more sense the whole thing actually makes :P
i mean, it DOES have a ton of weapons on it but those dont even hinder the articulation. and when one weapons runs out of ammo you can just jettison it or dismount the whole backpack.
the backpack itself isnt even all that big. its just two hyper bazookas with additional equipment and two gatlings on hardpoints. it doesnt even reach down to the legs that much. without the boosters it can actually stand on its own!
and the arms only look messy when you have everything attatched, like i did it.
i REALLY like the design now! it looks good and seems to be a really effective weapons system.

What's a reasonable price to sell:

SD Exia
SD Exia Repair 2
SD 00 Raiser
SD 00 Qan[T]
SD 00 Gundam Seven Sword/G

...on eBay?

They're all used & built with some stickers applied. Only thing I'm including is the original instruction booklet, original box, and the kit itself build.

Considering that it is already built. You could only sell it maybe at half the price of when you originally bought it because nobody really wants to buy model kit that is already built. Though you could increase the selling price if it was well built and with an awesome paintjob.

thanks^^ i have the special version of the action base for my regular MG unicorn and i wanted to have a fitting one for the full armor version.
it was pretty easy to make, too! just get some clear decal paper, print the decals, let it dry, seal them with a top coat or clear primer (i used Mr. Metal primer which can also be used as a very hard glossy top coat) and then put them on like regular waterslide decals.
making your own decals is very easy and i totally recommend it! especially since they will be waterslide decals which are incredibly easy to use and essentially fool proof since once they are on the model you can still move them until they dried a little. and even then you can add a drop of water to make them movable again.

I got them at:

Reserve Price $48.00
Buy It Now Price $55.00
Shipping $10.00

But the auction has 1 bid at $10.50 and there's no way I'm going to sell the kits at such a low price. The auction is ending in a few minutes actually...lol

I am going to relist it at like

Starting Price $40.00
Reserve Price $55.00
Buy It Now Price $60.00
Shipping FREE USPS Priority Mail

its definitely a mod. you can see some unpainted red psycho frame pieces in the side skirts.

edit: it was displayed next to the MG FA unicorn though, so maybe this is a hint that they will indeed release it soon.

I wouldn't be too surprised if we saw Unicorn Banshee MG early 2012 since it's basically:

MG Unicorn Gundam
- swap out white armor for black armor
- swap out red psycho frame for gold psycho frame
- change up the head & v-fin
- new weapons

hrm. It comes to about 4000yen new for those SD kits which i guess is about $50 USD. I'm not sure whether pple pay more or less for built kits in the US but if i'm buying built kits i'll be looking for at least 50% off new prices unless its some rare limited production kit. Good luck on your sale!

dunno about that, I'd think they will want to sit on the demand for FA for abit before deciding on Banshee.
Q2/maybe possibly Q3 sounds like a good time for it me thinks.

But I'm going by what I paid through GG Infinite & Gundam Store and More. I'm also doing some light comparisons to what people are selling them for on eBay as well...

=P

.
.

So I just adjusted the pricing...

Shipping FREE USPS Priority Mail
Reserve Price $47.00 --> this is the minimum until it sells Auction style
Buy It Now Price $55.00 --> this is the price if you want to just buy it straight up\
Starting Auction Price $25.00 --> this is the minimum bid the auction will start at

I think that's a bit more reasonable considering I'm also offering Free USPS Priority Mail shipping (2-3 business day delivery to anywhere in the continental US).

If anyone is interested just search for 140673249606 on eBay.com

=P

That's the item number for the auction.

a word of advise: if you sell the kit that is fixed, ppl normal look for half the price you get originally , even for msib kits which you do not fixed when you sell, it would normally market around 20-30% less the original price

i agree, if the unicorn variations dont sell well, why would they release another one?
but im kinda sure that it will sell decently. im sure that many people didnt buy the unicorn yet because they were waiting for a full armor version! they also said that there WILL be more MGs fromt he unicorn series. they didnt say what MGs but since the banshee is just a unicorn variation they probably will make it. even of it does sell poorly they can make a profit with it since the developement costs for it are minimal.

So you're saying my eBay posting is good or not?

I mean I'm even offering Free USPS Priority Mail shipping. It's gonna cost me like $5 ~ $6 right off the bat just on the shipping label alone.

personally i think it isnt good at all. you cant expect more than 20 or maybe 30 bucks for 5 used (by that i mean built) SD kits.
