I am the 2nd owner of a HUO only AC/DC premium and I am considering putting it up for sale to change up my lineup. It looks like the new Vault premiums are around $7K new. I have a few small mods on my AC/DC (mirror blades, lightning bolts, railroad tracks) which I realize are really not really worth much of a consideration from a resale standpoint. Does $6K sound about right for a AC/DC premium?

Thanks for any guidance you can provide!

That sounds super reasonable. I think you'd sell it almost instantly at that price.

My vault premium was a bit under 7k shipped... honestly, for a 6k price with your upgrades (which I'm also adding to mine minus the train tracks) I'd much rather have yours!

I don't really have a whole lot of faith in Stern's new manufacturing process, fingers crossed they build the vault the same way as the original!

Probably get a little more than 6k ..... id say 6250-6500 ..

#5 3 years ago

Really.... I know someone who just picked one up for a little over 5k

$6250-$6500 is right.

The price of an original is contingent on the artwork of the VE and QC issues.

I think at 6500 people will wait to see the VE.

I agree, unless the unit has color dmd or invisiglass....those are worth paying for

#10 3 years ago

Don't think the vault will have same build. To me anyways, original, as long as it is HUO and low plays should be worth more. Peoples opinions will vary of course...

So the build quality means a lot so folks would rather have an original, but they will wait to see what the VE looks like to see if there is a reskin of it. If they like the reskin they will sacrifice build quality for better art and buy a new one instead. In the mean time HUO ones can't be priced until the VE is revealed so this game can't be sold until then. Got it.

Or just price it at $6500 and work out a deal to someone who trusts older builds from Stern and call it good.

A premium or pro?

List it for 6K and I might buy another one.

Thanks Everyone, I appreciate the advice! I'll look at around $6500-$6250 and see where it goes
