Got two White Porcs from my Dogs build (see profile links for pics) that are surplus to requirements and wanted guide as to pricing for them before I put them up for sale...

If they are pretty mint I'd say you would get 100.00 for them on the bay . They do not come up often , even more rare are butterscotch they only went for 100.00 the other day and were mint .

So it's luck on the day really :(

despite their hideous weight and dubious looks they go for mega bucks it seems!.......in reasonable nick i would suggest they would go over the £100 mark.......reliant on the right buyer at the right time i guess.......best of luck with the sale!.... :D

3 years back I paid about £70 for a slightly yellowing NOS one off eBay.
Last year I sold a great condition used pair on eBay for £220 posted.
Last month I paid £103 plus £37 postage! for a minty white NOS one from Spain eBay, it was alot I know but after searching for another NOS one over three years I just couldn't wait any longer!

I saved my paper-round money up for one of these and was very disappointed when I used it :(

I have a pair of black ones boxed from the re-issue they did.

Paid over the odds as they were the last ones left, and they will be getting used over the chase :)

Apparently the markets dropped completely out of them.

Any help?
