Ok. But you must take all of them and come get them.

The things you own end up owning you.

Kev, I would definitely look through the comics and offload a lot. Some series I love dearly and hold on to, but the vast majority I've had for years will never be read and really arent worth more than a dollar. They take up a ton of space relative to their usefulness. They're also of little value in repeat entertainment. You may reread a series every few years, but the vast majority will be one-and-done.

Minis, I've found, take up little space if they're off sprue and stored smartly. I wouldn't dump anything I'd use or had painted, but that's just me. I really enjoy rummaging through bitz for conversions and ideas, and anything you assemble and paint has a ton of repeat entertainment value if you take it to tournaments and gaming nights. The books are in constant transition, so things are consistently revitalized. Err.. wait, I mean offload all your minis, especially your goblins. They're owning you.

I have lots of storage space and am willing to store your metal miniatures for a small fee of only 5-6 metal minis a month :D Sorry I cant take plastics though.

Like what was said already for the comics if your not going to read them , for the most part they are not worth money collectible card games ruined the market for all this type of stuff like sports cards and comics , since a pokemon card will shoot up too 90 bucks on the day off release rather than 20 years later collectors find that to be more of a profit .

As for the mini stuff keep whatever you think you need once you unload the comics ( and since warhammer is your current hobby ) you will have room to store most of it . Like Jarret said take stuff off the sprues it saves a ton of space . Me as you all know iam always selling stuff off but that's because I like to let the hobby pay for itself .

I have tons of Comics, Magic Cards, Trading Cards, DnD books, etc. that I just don't use anymore. I always see people listing crap on Craigslist, but I just can't bring myself to get rid of it...

This is going to sound a bit odd, but why don't you get a storage room out on Long Island? My wife and I have a 5x15 storage locker we pay less than seventy bucks a month for. If you're not going to need the stuff very often, then the distance isn't a consideration, and you could get something in Nassau or along the 110 corridor. Borrow someone's van for a day and you're set.

No they won't. At least not monetarily.

My professional opion: Nope, won't be worth much of anything at all. Silver and Goldenage that are worth money now are worth keeping. Other stuff isn't.

As to old miniatures: Never toss anything away, it's always worth something. If nothing else, chuck it all in a big box, and give it to someone coming down for a tournament. I'll keep it, toss it in our next auction, and you get to pick out new product as you need it.

I recently started cleaning out 20 years of miniatures. I agonized at first getting rid of 'old stuff'. Soon as it was gone I could care less.
Like others have said, I don't get rid of a lot of the stuff I personally painted. But unpainted, old, bitz, etc are all getting chucked on ebay, chucked into the stores auctions, or given away to friends. I gave Al a stack of 8 Chessex figure cases this weekend. What the hell did I need to keep 8 empty figure cases around for a decade?
