I recently managed to stumble into a complete collection of the Grenadier leads. The following sets are what I have and well to be honest I am kind of curious as to what everyone would estimate them at as a collection.
They are all in their original boxes and the foam is undamaged.

2001 Wizards and Illusionists
2002 Halflings
2003 Dwarves
2004 Hirelings
2005 Fighting Men
2006 Specialists
2007 Female Characters
2008 Thieves
2009 Wizards Room
2010 Denziens of the Swamp
2011 Orcs Lair
2012 Dwellers Below

I will be selling them. I am just curious as to what others would estimate them at. If anyone is interested here I will discuss it with them if they wanted. I was thinking of selling them as individule boxed sets, but I am kind of tossing up the idea of listing them all as a single lot since they are complete.

Also there are no broken or bent items, There are a total of 8 pieces that someone attempted to paint out of them.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Ogreden

Depending on box condition I would take them all off your hands if you want to pm me a price.

Kind regards
David

Take this opinion with a large grain of salt, 'cause it's been a long while since I was actively looking for Grenadier box sets.  But I'd say $25-$35 per box, depending on how crisp & shiny the cardboard.   Most of these minis are not too hard to find as singles, but intact boxes used to command a premium.  Dwellers Below, being rarer than the others, should go for more.


Shanghai fun & friends!

Prices vary wildly on these.  I have seen shrinked ones go over $75 and bargains in ratty boxes go for less than ten.  If they are unpainted AND INCLUDE THE PAPER INSERT that describe the contents I would say in the $30-$40 dollar range.

Also there are different printings and lots of them, I think I own at least 4 versions of the Dwellers Below set.

Some of these sets sell for less than the $25+ figures mentioned above:  hirelings, females, and wizard's room in particular stand out to me as more like $10-15 sets vs. $25+.

Thanks everyone I will look into the various versions of these.

I am going to take some clear images of them in the boxes, the boxes and the figures themselves front and back. I know the stuff of legends has some images but to be honest they are pretty poor images.

Does anyone know of other sites who would have need of the images, of would it be maybe a possibility for us to place a section for them here on the acaeum. Since the older ones actually say Dungeons & Dragons on them. Just as a reference for others to see.

I would be interested in the aspect of the various versions. To see the different covers. I think the grenadier would be easy to do as they had limited sets. I would suggest the boxed sets only and not the smaller blister pacs. But I would be interested in doing this, maybe with another person or two.

Input on this idea would be appreciated.
Thanks again everyone.
