I'm focusing mostly on the first 8 tribes, in the first 12 colours atm, and im 451/516 (excluding neons, GITD, silvers/golds/blacks, and medievals/prehistorics onwards)

 

collecting on ebay has pretty much come to a halt for me as I can't justify paying £5-10 for one common boglin, and it feels like there aren't really collectors in the same way that MUSCLE and MIMP has collectors.

 

If anyone else has amassed tons of doubles and wants to try set up a trade, i'll be glad if I can get even 1 or 2 new ones.

 

also if you are going for a master set, what progress have you made? I've heard of a couple guys that have got quite far, but no one has come close that I'm aware of

I've thought about going for one, but I have enough problems trying to collect MIMP.

haha yeah, the best thing about boglins, is you can get a huge amount for fairly cheap, but there isn't enough knowledge on what makes up a full set like there is with MIMP

Harder to get them over here with the increased shipping cost though. That's why most of mine come from bulk purchases.

Isn’t it weird how the price of these things seems to bump up every time there is a postage hike?
Can we convince sellers that the price they bought it for doesn’t combine with the price they paid for shipping to create a new value?

Or is that too complex?

I just got the last member of the original six tribes in at least one colour, now I'll try to get one of each of the later tribes. The problem with posting Boglins is that they are quite heavy, my box of 200-300 of them must weigh about 4 kg.

yeah usually the shipping price is worth more than the actual boglins unfortunately. i've sent quite a few big parcels of them out to the states, usually in 2kg boxes. i think it's about £20 ($30) for 2kg

I'm kinda casually going for a Master Set. 

So casually that I have no idea what my current situation is. 
Currently I have at least two colours of every sculpt. 

But after that I have idea, they are waiting to be sorted and checked... 

 

I've also been put off a bit from eBay, unless there's something I really need in a lot it's not worth the jacked up prices. 

 

I have just moved house and finally have enough room to have my own small toy room... So once I've built the detolfs I'll let you know what I have for trades!

Yup that is my biggest impediment to ever getting a master set. Would be nice to have all the sculpts at least.

cool, sounds good man! next month i'm going to try pick up some Billy bookcases with Morliden doors and glass shelves. its quite a bit more expensive than using Detolf's but looks amazing

 

 

and yeah, ebay prices are a bit more crazy than they were when I started collecting a few years ago. I think the American collectors are probably willing to pay a bit more than we are to get a hold of some, but then we probably do the same for prices of US exclusive stuff too. and definitely Neclos  :lol:

Cool, that will be a nice set up. I don't have enough room to do something like that! 

 

I'm planning on adding at least an extra 4 shelves to the detolfs, most of the stuff I want to display is fairly small so want to maximize the space. 

 

Something like this:

 

 

Maybe I could even add 8 extra shelves...

oh yeah, i've heard about this. i actually picked up the rope clips to try it but never got round to adding the shelves. I use my detolf for action figures mostly but that def opens them up to displaying minis

I was expecting alot more feedback in this thread, there are definatley a few British collectors that have certainly started master sets but have parhaps stopped actively looking, once you get so far it becomes a chore looking for the ones you need especially from lots on eBay jumbled up in tribes together.

I got quite lucky and managed to message a seller selling up and grab about 80 odd figures I needed, they unfortunately have sat in a box for a few months whilst life is hectic and stressful!

haha yeah, i have actually resorted to spending £5-10 per figure that I need, it's the only way now. 

 

im pretty sure there are a few lurkers that are going for master sets.

 

that's crazy you managed to get 80 new ones. mostly neons?

I have a full sculpt set, and many duplicates in different colours. I'm not going for the master set and sold off a load of duplicates a few years ago. I just didn't have the room, so I just picked my favourite colour of each tribe and kept those. Also have one gold of the Cool Dudes (lucked out, he was in a job lot at the bottom of the box), I have a sealed slime boglin and no idea which one is inside, the boglin prison, and carry box, plus various cards, leaflets and packaging. Pretty nice set that spends its days in my loft. I just have the prison on display with a few of favourite sculpts. I've often thought I should have kept the duplicates and gone for the master set, but seeing how prices on eBay went I'm glad I didn't in the end. I would have spent a small fortune and my wife would have killed me!

Hi
Haven't posted before but found this forum after putting on a few eBay listings. I didn’t know mini boglins were still so collectible.
If anyone is looking for any of the samurai or medieval boglins I have some that I was going to list. If anyone would be interested in buying them (sorry not looking for trades) just let me know
