this is a hard one..yours are 1 of 1 and the yeti is 1 of 50 but when it comes to how much people are willing to pay..id say two handmades do equal one yeti's going price...hmm this is hard but i would say keep your handmades..the way things are going, it looks like less and less handmades will be made..and trust me it was such a pain to try to get a handmade at uglycon this year

I personally would get the Yeti because i love it, it looks so cute and because i know how difficult it is to get and how much its worth but its your choice from here.

no its un even.
A handmade uglyworm AND a handmade icebat for a yeti?
lets see here...

Value of items offered for trade:

Handmade uglydoll - $600 to $800+ depending on which ugly and from what show

yeti-$300 to $550 depending on if the print is also included

Handmade worm- unknown as no record of public sale,however it is safe to say its value is less than the value of a full size handmade uglydoll.


So for a yeti (max value $550ish)
your going to trade
a handmade icebat (max value $800) AND
a handmade uglyworm(max value unknown)

It just dont add up...

Each handmade uglyworm is 1 of a kind and I don't think David&Sum-Min
will make all cute hm worms again.

I would keep the uglyworm if I were you.

who said the Ice-Bat was a 1 of a kind? I think the price of a Yeti mentioned is very low. I would have to say whoever ends up with the Yeti got the better deal.

I guess it was not made clear if the icebat is a handmade...
What is the current value of a yeti? I thought the last public sale was in the 550 ballpark but I could be wrong...

I think we can assume the icebat must be a handmade. If not, you are coming out very nicely on the better side of this trade, even if we only consider size.

Any of the handmades are valuable and rare. Even if 50 were made of the Yetis, usually only 1 or 2 of each variation of the plush were made, so you are comparing an 'edition' of 1 or 2, against an edition of 50. Of course, the Yeti has the extra Biskup connection so there may be more interest in it because of that. But I would say it's not too bad a trade. But keep in mind you are really trading 2 handmades for 1 handmade, and each one is very difficult to come by. I think today it's a hard call. But who knows what you may think in the future!

Yeti would probably still fetch $600 minimum, $800 likely, $1000 possible if bidding was brisk.

Are we talking handmade micro Uglyworm, Little Uglyworm or regular Uglyworm?
