Old Epic Blisters

Over the weekend I ran across some old unopened blisters of metal GW Epic Space Marine stuf. I'm trying to decide if I just want to pop them open and put some simple paint jobs on them for my son to play with, or if they might be worth selling off.

 

So I headed over to eBay to see if I could find some pricing examples, and this is the only listing (completed or not) that I can find with an unopened blister:

http://cgi.ebay.com/...=item20b5f18dcc

 

It's not a completed listing. Which leads me to wonder - is this guy just dreaming, or are old Epic blisters really selling for that much?

 

Anyone here have any idea?

My observations from trying to dip my toes into Epic:

 

Ork stuff is dirt cheap, as are any non-Squat Plastics.

 

Everything else is above-original-price (metal warmachines) to are-you-kidding-me (Titans, Squats, Chaos)?

 

And with Forgeworld's models OOP, and most of the remaining GW stuff prices ludicrously, sellers are getting greedy.

I'm not trying to be greedy myself here, but if I could get $20 or more a blister, I think I'd be a fool not to sell, since I don't really want the stuff any more.

 

At $10 a blister, even though it's more than I paid for it, not so sure it's worth the hassle.

Maybe a better gauge then ebay, is Chaosorc's Epic section:

If I had any, I'd sell em for sure!  Man I wish I would have bought a pile of Warmonger Titans when they were cheap.  But I had virtues like 'Self Control' and 'Frugality' then...

thanks for that link.

I sure didn't the entire 90s. Worse, I had "employee discount" - well, actually, owner discount, since my best friend and I had a trade account for our game business.
