    WOW! $990 and Reserve is still not met.
    Yesterday it was at $550.

    All I can say is the seller is one greedy *&^%
    And the people paying...........

    There are two buyers that are driving up the price. My guess is if its hit over $1000 and reserve is not met. The guy put a high reserve either is seeing what the market is or is reluctant to sell.

    Hehe Auto I thought the same, trouble is tho I'm sure a voice in my head will say nah dont sell it. This years customs class figure is pretty good tho. I cant remember ever seeing the others thinking I want that. But thats the downside you dont really know what the toy is until the class starts. Depending on next years box set will sell me on going or not.
    This year was going to be my first until all primus packages sold out way too quick. Maybe next year.

    that reserve is stupid, the dude knows minerva is gonna sell BIG TIME

    also....don't go to the customization class if you are just gonna turn around and sell the figure, there are people that want to go to the class and keep the figure

    Does anybody know what the reserve is. 990 dollars is a bit ridicolous.

    The reserve may be incredibly high (comparitively speaking or not) but it's not the seller's fault that people have bid so much up to this point.

    wouldnt surprise me if a KO comes out either. They already have 2 other KOs of Animated Arcee. For that price I rather get one of the guys from Radicons to repaint one for me. Saves lots of money.

    ...and this is why my Animated collection will never be complete.


    Kudos to those hardcore enough to pay 1k for a deluxe. I'm not.

    Yeah, some of us want to go to the class just to go to the class. I've yet to get registered in time to make it.

    The seller is THISisIT of our forums. If the buyer had only visited the forums a few days ago he could have saved himself over 400 bucks...
