Want to buy or trade for KRAATA (have Kanohi)

Hello!

 

Quite simply as the topic says: I want to buy Kraata! Since buying wild Kraata from my own country seems to be ridiculously expensive compared to the average price of a Kraata (and BL, while an option, a lot of people don't post photos of the wild Kraata they're selling so I'm unsure which one I might get if I buy), I'm hoping some BZP members can help me expand my Kraata collection and help fulfill a childhood dream!

 

Kanohi available for trade (I do have other non-Bionicle bits for trade including minifigs, feel free to ask).

 

My Kraata checklist (check this to see which Kraata I need, indicated by an unfilled box).

 

I'm located in the UK but I'm willing to trade worldwide and outright buy Kraata from most places worldwide. Sorry, but I'll only consider trades or part trades from people in the US or anywhere else with high base international postage (so >£5). Trades and UK/EU offers take priority.

 

For buying, I'm willing to pay 50p for every regular Kraata I don't have (that's the ones found in regular Rahkshi sets), £1-£1.50 for every wild Kraata (depending on which wild Kraata you have), and £1.50-£2 for the Stage 3 or stage 5 Shadow Kraata (depending on which one you have). As far as I'm aware this is around the average price for Kraata, if it's not then do let me know! I'll also buy Kraata pots (with Kraata!) if you have those, sealed or not. If I'm just buying I will pay for actual postage. Payment would be through Paypal in GBP, friends and family to save the fees on your end.

 

As for trades, I'll use the price I'm willing to pay for Kraata and compare it against the average BL price for whatever you want to trade the Kraata for, to ensure it's a fair trade.

 

If you're interested in doing business with me, then please PM me (if you are unable to PM me because you're on mobile, post a comment in this thread with your offer and I'll PM you back). Please try to use the Kraata type (e.g. Shattering, Poison, Rahi Control etc.) when making offers, it's much easier for me to understand what you have that way!  :)

 

If you don't have Kraata to trade but are a UK collector of Kraata, you can still help me: I'd appreciate some tips on finding and buying wild Kraata cheaply in the UK  :)

 

I look forward to doing business with you!  :D

 

EDIT: Seriously, nobody wants to help me with obtaining any wild Kraata at all? I've had zero offers. Am I not offering enough money for them or does nobody have any that they want to sell?

In regards to my point of view, when they came out and later during my collection years until I stopped around 2011-2012 with my Bionicles. I would say actually that Bricklink has destroyed the pricing in regards to Kraata collectables. I have paid hundreds towards what I have got now, I am also missing quite a view but I have got lots of them.

 

Don't ask me what I have, I haven't looked at them for ages until Crezdonn came along, but my opinion is, you guys don't even come close what I have spent on it to make me feel selling those. Not even one, unless I really look into this deeply and trying to be helpful for once.

Yea, BL is terrible about this :( I know that some masks are rare, aren´t in production for such a long time and that like, but paying 8$ for regular mask pack mask? Bfeeewww, no thanks...

I am aware buying Kraata is costly and I myself, despite already having the most expensive Kraata of all (the TOK), am still looking at spending hundreds to complete the collection, so for now I'm just looking for one of each type of Kraata, which will satisfy me for the time being. BL prices are actually cheaper than all the eBay prices in my country at least.

 

Anyway, I found a BL seller in Russia selling thousands of Kraata pots for a reasonable price (even more so when you order in bulk), which I'm guessing is where a lot of Kraata come from? I'd go there to get some Kraata myself but I'd need to buy quite a large number of pots for it to be worthwhile (because postage, and Royal Mail's handling fee for stuff coming from overseas) and I don't have hundreds to spend. My budget might stretch to 15 Kraata pots for now. But if a few other UK Kraata collectors who are thinking of buying many Kraata pots from there that want to combine orders to reduce the overall cost, just PM me and I'll see what I can do  :)

It depends where you're from really, if everyone's from within the EU it could potentially work, especially if all the pots are sent to a country that has cheap overseas parcel postage and/or customs rates (unfortunately that's not the UK, we have very expensive overseas parcel postage and our customs handling charges are crazy, £8 a parcel on top of the 20% tax charged). Otherwise, you might be better off finding other people in your own country that will be happy to combine orders with you  ;)

 

BTW, everybody would need Paypal as well  ;)
