    This guy has been trying to get ridiculous amounts of money for that collection for a long ass time.

    $8543 assuming he took advantage of one of the recent free listing offers.

    Maybe if they were all MISB and 225k less it'd probably workout to about right but whoevers crazy enough to spend that much though is another matter.

    Yea, the guy that rented an apartment to hold his collection... Funny thing is it says at the top in big red letters - not for sale! So why not just end the listing?

    Look at the picture again. His other auction had more pictures as well but he has a crapload that are mib,moc,misb,mosc.

    For that price I'd expect the house they come in too :)

    No, that guy lived in vegas and had one room and it was mostly loose (tons of metroplex and scorpinox repeats) but it was in his house.

    The seller is from Colorado.

    ^Yeah, I remember this auction, I'm surprised he hasn't given up yet. Why buy a house when you can spend $425,000 on a bunch of toys?

    I see some stuff in there I wouldn't mind getting my hands on, but geez not for the price of the house. I think if we was serious about liquidating it it would be better to sell the items individually for guys to pick and choose what they want, instead of being saddled with an outrageously expensive collection.

    I remember his auction was about 225K a while back. He added 200k worth of stuff on his collection?

    ebay charged 9% of closing cost sale.. so it would cost him $38,250 just for that part, not including the listing price, and paypals fee of $12,750:D

    I'd sell anybody ALL my TF's for less the closing costs and Paypal fees of this one...OK, I'd like to keep the Masterpieces and a few Altrnators, but all the LDs, E-Hobby, Japanese pieces, UK exclusives, Botcon figures, prototypes, Diaclones, South Amerrican Minicars...less than $50,000 and you can have it all :p  Hell, I'll throw in the GoBot stuff too...
