    The question is WHY, the answer is BECAUSE. Personally, I think it's an investment only to those who think it's an investment.

    Dang! $11,000!? I think the buyer considers it as a piece of art? Because for that amount of $, he could have bought numerous reissues or MP-05s!

    *rolls eyes* I'm in no position to tell someone how to spend ten grand, but that's just not cool.

    Never in a million years would I spend $11,000 on a single toy. I don't care if it was 14k gold plated.

    My thoughts exactly. I'd buy a whole shelf of Megs and bring 'em back.

    Oh, and buy my Fort Max grail...

    My first thought was to question the legitimacy of the auction.

    Okay what the holy hell is AFA, and why/how does it justify an $11,000 price tag? That is the most insane thing I've ever seen where the price of a TF is concerned.

    Wait, you don't know about the infamous AFA (the so-called "Action Figure Authority") monopoly? Google it! Read on and feel the anger welling up!
