I mean... I don't think I could give my droid away at this point... (saracasm)

Edit: Yes I realize I spelled sarcasm wrong.

But really though... I traded my 1 of 2 ego 7 and a halo for my droid in sig hoping I'd be able to sell it soon. Turns out NOBODY is buying guns except for those pawn shop bastards in the WTB.

I had the original price at 900 OBO-nobody offered
Tried 850 OBO nothing worth mentioning

not it's 775 OBO and I've only had one offer. I just want to sell it and try to clear around 800. You guys think that's asking too much or what?

Everyone is trying to get rid of their 08 guns for the 09 guns, while all the buyers are saving their money and waiting for 09 guns themselves.

I agree... I know cup is coming but what does anyone think a droid should be able to sell for between now and then

It all depends. I'm not b/s/t expert but it all depends on the condition of the marker, inside and out, along with ups.

well the droid should keep its value, it really depends on everyone else. Like other people said most are saving for the new 09 guns which really wont be much imo. just remember its hard to sell the higher end guns to begin with unless the person was already looking to buy the gun and has money.

Especially with cup around the corner, everyone tends to "hold out"

Thing is, the droid will be the same next year,,,

I cant move my droid at near regular price (and I can count the times its seen use on one hand)

I found out to post a high price and most will offer around the price you want.

I saw Droids selling for $750 right after Phoenix PSP. Just a fyi.

Doubtful. If they have any idea what it's really worth they'll call you an idiot for asking that much and lowball you.

If it was red I might try to talk the wife into letting me buy it (yes I am whiped and I am ok with that, besides she balances the check book) since I want a Droid (and maybe the new borg or whatever they call it) but I'm looking for a red one or something with a dust/satin finish

To add on to my previous thoughts, I believe threads like these are a way to circumvent the rules of a b/s/t thread outside the b/s/t forum. It's like your using this thread to draw significant attention from the MacDev community to the fact that you're trying to sell your Droid at what you feel is below the current market value. These threads should be deleted by the mods on sight, as the purpose of this section is not to advertise the **** you're trying to sell.

If you want to know what it's worth, search the b/s/t forums for similar markers in similar conditions and look at their current price/offers. If that doesn't help, then do what everyone else does and either lower/raise your price accordingly based on what you're being offered in your thread.

If everyone posted these threads this forum would be a mess. Because of this I'm reporting the post as spam.

No I am not using this to try to sell my gun, and I feel you only made that comment because a couple of people made comments about getting it. The thread was about what fair price of droids were right now. Yes I could search BST, but all I find are lowball and trade offers. Therefore I turned to the MD community as I thought they would know best.

There is no reason for this thread to be closed at it in no way violates BST, hell I'm not even trying to sell my gun here... being this is the MD forum, most people already have the guns and are less likely to buy it from me.

i agree. i also think that putting links to BST threads in your signature is another means of bypassing the BST rules...

Hey even rarer droids are hard to clear on the market. My blitz got almost no cash offers at all. It is pretty depressing to look at sometimes.

So let me get this straight. You think it would be ok if everyone who was trying to sell their Droid/Cyborg posted a new thread in here asking what it was worth to draw more attention to it? Not quite sure how creating threads directly related to your b/s/t thread in a different forum is related to a signature. Whatever floats your boat I guess.

The AKA forum specifically made an appraisal thread to remove stupid ones such as this. You show a picture of your marker, and ask for its value. You don't tell its' life story, or about your hardships of trying to sell it. The pointless part about that in this forum is that 95% of the markers that end up there would be the same thing in a different color.
