    Check this listing out:

    BOTCON 2000 Fan Appreciation Dinner Plate, ULTRA RARE!! - eBay (item 270611984155 end time Aug-22-10 14:07:36 PDT)

    While that BotCon 2000 plate is certainly unique, there is no way it is worth that. No where close to $1600. He doesn't even mention how many were made in his listing. However, that shouldn't be too hard to find. Each plated is numbered out of 385. I know because I used to own one.

    His listing is laughable at best. He'll be lucky to get even $100 for it.

    EDIT: I am very tempted to contact him and tell him to look at the Plate's back side. The number can be found there. Pretty sad he didn't bother to check.

    The pins, plates, posters and shit aren't valuable. The toys are, and only some of them.

    I offered $10.
    Declined.
    I can go to Walmart and get a dozen plates for that price. I think my offer was totally fair.

    He must have auto-decline turned on for the listing. I wonder how much you have to offer in order to override the auto-decline. My guess is $1000.

    This phrase comes to mind:

    "Sorry, that won't do for this one."

    Well, he has to fund his affinity for pork chop sandwiches somehow.

    That's probably one of the lamest user names I've seen in a long time. Even Sam's LadiesMan#### was better than pork chop! LOL!

    He must want about 5000$ for the toys then.

    What, the He-Man ones? I noticed he has a lot listed for $600 or so. Take solace though. He has a Best Offer option available ;)

    He's still holding firm on that $1600 price. I also see he's having a hard time selling that Animated Movie LD. No surprise there. No way that's worth $3100.

    LOL, it is soooo worth it for that.

    But seriously, I see he's still trying to sell his Plate and Laserdisc on these boards (and other TF boards). You'd think by now he would have realized they aren't worth anywhere near what he's asking for the Plate or Laserdisc.
