HOORAY!!  i just sold my last Portal of Atlantis set from the Atlantis line. i think I may throw a party! i can finally wash my hands of that dog of a theme. it was quite a blemish on my brickfolio. i was sitting on six of those bad boys and it took almost two years to find six buyers. i wound up making about $20 each after costs. thankfully my entry point was low. good riddance!

I listed a 7985 two nights ago. It was missing a figure and the sub and it sold within 24 hours for $60. I thought that was pretty amazing considering the suckiness of this theme. Though the column pieces for the City would be great for some Greek architecture.

Congratulation on a job well done. I still have 8 of the Disney's Construct-a-Zurg sets. Any Lego reseller will tell you how bad that decision was. Luckily my excuse is that I was a newbie at that time. Still waiting for that buyer ... to come forward.

I'm impressed that you managed to scrape and average of $20 profit off each set.  I know you had to sit on them for quite a while, but a profit is still a heck of a lot better than a loss on each set.  A good reminder that entry price point is they key - if it is low enough, you can still break even or scrape by even if the theme tanks.

I gave all mine away as birthday presents :)

At least they were cheap!!!

I love reading threads like this though, it always makes us see how fun our hobby/investments are.

maybe in another 1.5yrs I can post something like this for my 4 Anakin Podracers lol.  Might take longer :(  Guess I have to sit on it for a LONG time...I have space for it so don't need to do a 'clearance' sale to break even yet.  At worse b-day gifts for nephews :)
