    Man, that sucks. Same thing with my TRU, saw four, came back the next day and all were gone. I'll keep you in mind, if I come into one. I can send it to you all at cost.

    Interesting...

    Exactly who besides another scalper (or maybe a comic books shop) would want 10 Arcee's?

    I don't see even a diehard multiple copy buyer wanting more than 3-4 tops.

    WTF?

    Damn, man.

    A screengrab of that auction would find a perfect home in the "Let's See Some Not-So-Cool Stuff" thread if you ask me.

    This, exactly.

    And besides that, who in their right mind would pay $220 for 10 Arcees?

    I hope the cashier gave this guy the stinkeye the whole time.

    I'd buy it for $220, and then resell them on ebay for twice that individually.

    They wouldn't go for that much. The price is dropping. This scalper's trying to offload inventory.

    edit: on a completed items search of Arcee in the main Transformers category, check out the subline breakdown:

    Animated (154)
    Movies (41)
    Other (38)
    Generation 1 (20)
    Energon (12)
    Japanese (7)
    Robots in Disguise (R.I.D.) (3)
    Botcon (1)
    Mixed Lots (1)

    :lol

    Hope this guy doesn't include his home address on the mailing label.

    I can see bad things happening if he did. :lol

    Ebay:
    What are the chances that this particular seller is employed at TRU?

    Based on the amount of TF knowledge I've seen in my interactions with TRU employees? 5-10%. :lol
