When i got my S2 shipment I decided I would wait to see what the price of the promo minis was going to do before I actually opened any of them and I actually still have yet to open any of them.

Im curious though since I haven't really paid attention as a non backer of season 1. Has the price of season 1 promos gone up or is it fairly constant? I really don't like the idea of opening the promos to play with so either way they are probably going to stay NIS but i'm really curious if people think it makes more sense to offload them all now or wait and hope the price goes up.

IMHO, Sell the promos now while the game is new and hot.

This.

The S1 promos seem to fluctuate in price, but, overall, the average appears to be lower than it was back when they first hit eBay.

S1 to S2 comparisons are difficult, as S1 had less availability of fewer characters, while S2 was a hugely successful KS thus greater availability of lots of characters, so supply and demand doesn't favor S2 being as valuable. Also, S3 is coming soon, so that could either dilute the demand for characters overall, especially if there are a lot of S3 characters, or there is a slight chance that post-S2-KS newbies might increase the demand for S2 exclusives. I would try to sell some of the ones that interest you the least now and see how much you make. You may only be able to decrease the cost to you of S2 rather than make money off it.

That's a good point.

S1 promo prices saw a slight increase during and for a while after the S2 KS.

But, I think irrespective of relative demand, the overall trend is downwards, so it's generally better to sell earlier rather than later.

Have to agree, unless you're happy to speculatively hang onto them for a few years, any price fluctuations are likely to be minimal, so you're better off selling them ASAP (plus you get to take advantage of the delay before Europe get their copies and you suddenly have more competition).

In S3, CMON and GG will be giving away the *cards* for the promotional figures in S1 and S2. I guess that will spark interest in the promos.

Besides. There're something like 44 survivors now?? Do you really need these many to play the game?

I'm keeping my Agatha Christie with the flamethrower, though! laugh
