    image.jpg image.jpg So, this was one of my childhood ponies, and apparently at some point I gave her a haircut. Her symbol is a little worn as well.

    I intend to sell her at some point, but I'm not sure if I should try selling her as is or if I should get her restored first. How much would she go for at her current condition? How much would restoring her cost, and how much would that affect her total value?

    I would fix her up. She goes for $900+- I’m good condition. To order new hair would cost you about $20 (rerouting tools included).
    Rapunzel in this (hair) condition has gone for significantly less money. I wasn’t able to find any in less than A1 condition but if my memory serves me correct, I saw one with a major cut sell for like $50-80. So it is a big loss to you.
    But then, if I were you I would keep her after rerouting. She’ll look so beautiful again. :)

    Hmm, I see. How much would it cost to have a professional restoration? I may do it myself, but I would need practice on other ponies first. Even then I may still be too nervous to do it myself.

    Heh, I might end up keeping her after all that trouble. She may become even more valuable down the road, after all. I doubt they'll re-release her like some of the other classic ponies, and even then she'll still be an original Rapunzel. I guess I'll see how I'm feeling by that point.

    I would like to know where I can find someone to restore her, and how much it would cost. I just don't trust myself with the job.
