They both have awesome ROM, especially rocket, given his size
I'll get a gamora shot soon

I was probably looking least forward to gamora out of the 5, but I think she actually has the most range of motion. She doesn't have a bicep swivel (even rocket does!) but it doesn't really hurt the figure at all

Drax is pretty sweet as well, I think I'm gonna mod his torso joint for more motion. Other than that I couldn't think of anything else he needs. Maybe double joint elbows

Groot is probably my favorite of the 5. He's Surpringly limber for a tree, he has so much articulation and a great ROM on all of it. He sculpt has to be seen in person to really appreciate it. He's just incredible

Starlord was my most anticipated but weak joints on the lower body really hurt his posing ability, and unfortunately it's all starlord's not just mine
Plus in an attempt to strengthen them, I put super glue on some joints and didn't let it dry completely before I stopped moving it, so now one half of one knee joint is frozen. I guess it's a good thing he has double knee joints

I want to get into getting rare/exclusive toys to resell. Please don't frown upon me. I just want some help on where I can get the best info on what's out there/coming out and where to get it. :]

I'm starting with a POP! Invisible Frodo. It's being listed as worth ~$40 and I got it for $9.99. Any help/insight is appreciated.

Yeah Crash Dummies aren't cheap. I got it at this auction site, they often have good vintage toy and comic book auctions that are online only:
https://sellersvilleauction.hibid.com/auctions/current/

I also get a lot of stuff from online classified ads like Kijiji.ca, which is the Canadian version of Craigslist.

Several years ago I tried selling my Spawn figs and no one wanted them. I ended up donating them to Toys for Tots.

Everyone who collected toys in the late 90s early 00s I think ran into this. I swore the red variant of my Wetworks Assassin One would make me some $$. Produced millions, everyone thought they were going to be a valuable investment. I sold mine in 2006, but not until after I allowed for international shipping on ebay. Dudes in Argentina apparently fucking loved McFarlane toys back then. Every bid was from there, and as I understand it, ebay makes it much easier to ship internationally without getting ripped off (as much).

That's a re-release, right? I've been eyeing the Sahelanthropus forever. I should be keeping money for my wedding instead of blowing it on toys, but I'm sure I'm gonna end up getting it sooner or later.

yeah its a rerelease in camo opposed to the grey it was released in. i saw the sahaelanthropus at my shop but it was like 180 bucks. sahael is the second coolest metal gear but i can only imagine how much time its take to build that thing

they had the 3.0 unit 01 too for around the same price. is that the one you talking about brick? or the smaller older one
