    Well bro, that would be lots of someones for the bid to go so high...apparently many people place GREAT value on that exclusive set. I mean it's a nice set yeah BUT not $1600 nice IMHO...but hey to each his own.

    As long as the winning bidder is happy, I am too for him/her.

    yeah I was watching this one too, its ridiculous, the last auction I saw for one of these sets I think it ws about $500-700, but wow, this is just way to rich for one toy thats only a few years old.

    A bidding war and nothing more and that happens from time to time. Average price is between $700.00 to $850.00 a set. Someone really wanted that one. :lol

    You mean several someones really wanted that set. $700 does seem to be the norm but mid last year I saw one or two go for below $600.

    Thanks Patobot! I was shocked myself to see it go for that much. Under $600 for the set? Where?? The other set I sold last year went for $990.....

    I got $800 for just Megatron a year or two back. Waspinator went for about $150, I think. I'm honestly not at all surprised by this auction.
    They're expensive as hell but DAMN, they're beautiful toys.

    I would say that it might be time to revise that estimate up a touch. There were two bidders willing to pay $1600 and a third who bid $1200. I think someone would be lucky to get one for under $1000 now.
