    Wanted to get some advice from some of you.

    Seeing it is holiday season, is the marker lower or higher for custom transformers? I am debating auctioning something realllly big this coming wednesday (10 day auction)... but cautious because of Christmas being the week in the middle of the auction. Do you all think people will shop less/more during Christmas?

    This is my opinion:

    the number of people making purchases will go up duing said week, BUT that's beause they are searching for very specific things and are thus willing to fork out more money because of the time crunch. Now the day AFTER X-mas might be more promising, as people will have recieved money a presents, etc.

    Yes, do it. As Autobot Burnout said, either (A) people will be looking for last-minute gifts for others (or themselves) or (B) people will be looking to spend some Holiday money.

    Between you and me, he makes my previous gestalts (Devastator and Menasor) look like Minicons. There is 20 times more detail, gadgets, extras...he's MUCH larger than the deluxe sized Constructicons..hell, this one even talks.

    I think for this sort of item, the time won't matter. The buyers of these customs are always on the look out.
