    Hello everyone!

    I was't sure if I should have simply placed this in the last Botcon thread or not, but there is an action on Ebay up for Botcon Jazz. In the picture is his Cyber Key. I'm ot sure if we've seen this before, but I at least don't remember it.

    Here is the link.

    I'm attaching the photo, just in case it gets taken down or something happens.



    Please accept my apologies if this has been seen before.

    Wow, it's selling for more than what the entire set cost. Doesn't look good for my future prospects of owning a Botcon '08 Jazz.
    On a side note, there sure are a lot of Primes and Starscreams, I wonder if we'll see Hot Rod, Megatron, and Sideswipe any time soon.

    I never bothered looking at the price tag. That is pretty ridiculous! :lol  I'm really looking forward to seeing both Sideswipe and Megatron. I hope that Sideswipe is green like that rumor stated. But I do have to wonder what his Mini-con partner will be named. I remeber one person suggesting Vangaurd, based after his Actionmaster partner.

    Thank you for letting me know. :D  Please accept my apologies. I didn't mean to take away from someone else's thread. I'll be more careful next time!

    Edit- To my surpise I just saw this has been front-paged! I believe that Victorysaber also deserves some credit for this, he found it first. :D

    Thank you, I'm glad then. :D  Perhaps, the front page can be edited to place your name there as well?

    I am soooo glad I'm at least getting the box set (non-attending)... although this scares me as to what I'll pay for Roddy and Megs >.>

    Figures are worth what people will pay.

    Jazz is clearly going to be the 'prize' of this set because of the way he can seamlessly fit in with the classics line. So as far as we know, 400$ is *LOW*. Until the post Botcon market works itself out, we won;t know.

    What is the going rate on botcon seekers? While Bugbite and Dreadwing are cool, most people buying the set only want the 3 seekers which then devalues the other two figures as singles.

    I fully expect to see sets missing just Jazz which will increase Jazz's price.

    We will see if the price for a solo Jazz goes up or down after botcon.

    I hope the price goes down somewhat, I want to get my hands on one but I don't think I'll be able to at that price.

    I wouldnt read too much into the ridiculous price/bid as last week i was bidding on a Botcon Prime, when someone bid $562 each for 5 in a multiple auction!! Check it out Item number: 300208589234, then days later it was relisted and i won one for $50, Theres even a boxed set up now, buy it now $60 item number 150229449773 so i dont think anyone would seriously bid that much for 1 loose jazz.

    I really, really doubt he will be selling for that much post-Botcon. This is just an inflated "pre-release" price. Ya gotta figure, if Animated toys which will eventually retail for $10 sell for $30 or so pre-release, a pre-release Botcon toy will be proportionately more expensive.

    I'm sure those who wish to buy Jazz on eBay after Botcon will be able to get him for a much lower price than this.

    Then again if this set IS selling for this kind of prices after the con my love of money may overide my love of exclusive Transformers.
