    Yeah....well normal retail is $19.99 on the hasbro site. *shrugs*.....I won't buy it. But the owner of the items can do with it whatever they want.

    Um, yeah? You have the potential to find a RTS Windcharger for $4.99 at places but they sell for $40+ now. Hell i bought RID Prime for $45 and it got to me with a $19.99 price sticker on it.

    So he is not allowed to charge market price on a figure he got a bargin on?

    Maybe you should not be in a collecting hobby, because that is pretty much how it works. I invite you to look at EVERY SINGLE FANSPROJECT SALE on ebay right now.
    As well as the vast majority of G1 sales.

    Stay away from botcon, ebay, amazon, junkion and basically anywhere people go to sell their transformers. because this happens all day everyday.

    "Check out this Knob!"....Knob indeed.

    I'm not saying the seller can't charge what they want. I'm just laughing because they forgot to remove the tag that show how much they paid for it. I know what they sell for, and I'd love to find one, that said, if you're gonna mark stuff up from what you paid for it, take the price tag off first.....

    Why?

    That would leave residue on the package. If you try to remove the residue you can damage the coloring of the box art.

    Sadly Grappel and Lugnut have plummeted in value, in my experience. Wouldn't be surprised if you get 0 bids.

    Yep. Leave the tag on it and let the buyer take the risk of removing t.

    Actually, I've removed those Ross stickers without it damaging anything or leaving residual. You just gotta take your time and be very careful in doing it. Then...there's always goo gone, but I have yet to use it on clear plastic so I don't know what it would do to the window.
