    Here was his reply.... apparently i was the nicest question he got.
    my question is first, then his reply.. and yes I know i'm being generous but not overly so since they are sealed on my valuation of them.

    question: "can I ask you what makes you think these are worth this much.. they are 6 year old toys that weren't even rare to begin with... they are worth at most sealed 10 dollars a piece and i'm being generous... just because they are able to be afa graded does not make them worth several hundred dollars."

    answer: "I don't remember having asked your generous opinion, and if
    you could share the information about getting the series for 80
    dollars, I'll have as many sets as they get. To talk about AFA,
    actually i'm totally against its grading system, which is truly
    against the nature of a TOY or any TOY. I mean you'll get more
    money but no way playing even touching. This auction is my
    own way to say no to grading, by letting see no direct profit after
    grading. As a collector, I just believe the value of the items I
    like, no matter how this conflicts with the market, as long as I'm
    not obliged to sell them out. Thanks for being at least more
    polite than some elsewhere no-other-things-to-do-guys."

    I don't get it. Is he saying they are worth 400.00 dollars because he likes them?

    or at least thats what he thinks the value of them should be... who knows... he also has the Sams club Omega prime figures listed for $200-$400.. now maybe ( and this is an extreme circumstance of a serious bidding war) those two sealed might go for $200, but certainly they will never go for $400 currently.

    he prices what he feels value is, not what market is.. so I guess thats his choice but he can't be disappointed when they don't sell.

    "I'm going to show how anti-AFA I am by jacking up prices on common, six year old toys - that'll show 'em!"

    That's the message I'm seeing.

    Seems like a waste of listing fees, but that's fine. I own eBay stock. :p

    Ditto - makes no sense, but that's about the only thing I can pull out of that wonky response. The guy's a flake.
