About how much can I sell my Skylanders for?

I have all of the Skylanders except Camo, Warnado, and Wham-Shell.
Also all the Legendaries and all cards, codes, and stickers.

i would most likely sell the game and portal too.
I also would sell them inside the toolbox that i have them in that was recommended on this board.

You can try checking comparable listings on eBay, but, keep in mind that it's just gonna be worth whatever someone feels like paying for it.

Considering how saturated the market is now I wouldn't expect to get more than 70% retail for a set. By the time Giants comes how I doubt you'll be able to give the things away.

I would have to say... if you purchased them with the sole intent of reselling them at a higher price, that's not a folly I would try to blame on the product itself.

well i didn't. i actually liked the game until 500 variants of each character came out, and then 500 re-releases with Giants, and everything else wrong with the series now.
it didnt even take a year to run it directly in the ground.

Well since its been close to 8 months since Skylanders was released, typically games, unless you're Nintendo, only cost 33% of the original retail price. In fact, unless you trade in the week of release, you're lucky to get 50% of what you paid.

A conservative estimate would be to get 50% of what you invested, assuming you bought at retail. I just throw that in there just because the game still has quite a bit of popularity.

One of my friends apparently might trade me my Skylanders set for a Mario 25th Anniversary DSi XL, Halo Reach Legendary Edition, Skyrim Collector's Guide, and maybe Metroid Prime Trilogy...

so i think i'll be doing good.
