    Default Various Store Displays, 2003-2008 or 2010?

    I acquired most of these from an EBGames store which later became a Gamestop.

    Super Mario Kart DS Display (x2) - One has a brochure holder, the other doesn't.



    Mario Party 7/Super Mario Kart DS Hanger (Hangs from a ceiling)





    "Someone will win an Xbox 360 every ten minutes" Mountain Dew Coroplast (Was on a parking lot lamp post) (x2)



    Various...







    Mario VS. Donkey Kong GBA Display:



    There are more in boxes, and some haven't ever been opened. I don't know what they look like:



    I'm located in Pennsylvania and would like to sell these.

    Nice collection of displays!

    Being a former GS person as well, I managed to snag a few displays over the years. I have that counter display for Kirby and the Amazing Mirror as well as one for Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. I used to have a nice Super Mario Galaxy floor display that had a motorized mobile but it got destroyed in a move.

    GLWTS!

    Thanks. Actually, I didn't work there - I just shopped there. I don't think I ever saw one of those Mario Galaxy displays, was it like a train set?

    Hopefully someone will be interested in buying the displays I have, I don't want to hold on to them forever to the point of them falling in to the ground. I've seen what happened to a bunch of cars that someone let sit in their yard for a long time; The only cars I've seen in worse shape had been at the bottom of a pond for 40-45 years.

    You could probably make quite a bit of money selling that stuff individually on ebay. I'd sell it slowly and set minimum prices. These sorts of displays seem to sell from $25 to $50 with some going for much more. The popularity of the franchise combined with the coolness of the standee/countertop display seems to be the equation.

    Thanks. I'm beginning to have other thoughts about them, at first I was thinking of selling the large ones for $10 then I upped it to $15 each. I'm thinking that in total, for all of the displays I have they're worth at least $250. Maybe $500? I don't know. I didn't have to look far for that. I don't want to overcharge though.

    That Blue Dragon one looks pretty cool. shipping will be the tough part, also disassembling those that are already put together.

    You know what, I just got a private message from someone asking about them.

    I'm posting to say I sold these to a member here. He drove 2+ hours one way to get them. I do have some other ones not pictured left; All three are thin plastic that can be stuck to a piece of glass as they're sticky on the back. I think two are for "The New Super Mario Bros" and he third one is for "Warioware Twisted".

    Wow good job moving those. I'd be curious to know what those sticky Mario's you have are and what you value them at. I think my kid would probably love one or two of those on her window.

    OK Tanooki, here are the photos:







    I'd ship them insured and with delivery confirmation at $25 for all three, if you're interested; I see you're in Kentucky.

    I'm likely interested, how big are they? I can think of a couple places that could work depending on size.

    I have the New Super Mario displays from my Gamestop days and they are pretty cool. I gave one to my sister and they loved them. I took the blocks one and stuck it to my NES.
