    They might be worth $4000 if they were all still factory sealed, but you can go to a local pawn shop and find all of those for under $100 each if not a lot less.

    Not even close, most of the game stores I have been to sell those for less than 40$, hell even on Amazon the GBC used is only 44$, give that price range, I doubt it even comes close to 4000$ all together if they are used

    I said if they were still factory sealed meaning never been opened. They could be sold as collectors items together for close to that price. You can easily get all of those handhelds for under $1000 used though.

    True, but even then it's still a stretch and honestly still pretty much over-priced even if they were perfect.

    I'd say $300, and that would be me being generous.

    edit: and that's if they were new and sealed.

    well according to Amazon just for 1 of the Pokemon GBC new is $440 i don't feel like looking up how much all 10 would be combined but it would probably be close especially with all the Pokemon fanatics in the world I'm sure someone would pay that kind of money for it.

    The guy's probably gonna get a whole lot less than 4000, though. Considering he's also taking best offers, and only has 30 sales, I'd say he'll get less than what he's chewing off.

    I don't feel like looking them up either myself, but still going to say it's going to come close, but would still be a rip off.

    What a joke...

    The only use for this is to collect it. $4000 to have it sit in your closet.

    Thats way too much especially since there is no proof that those aren't just regular ones with case changed

    I think I'll offer him two grand and see if he accepts.
