    I was watching that auction until the price ballooned like that. Heck, I lost out on a Doubledealer that ended for $13+ 7 shipping just Sunday. I guess people are just trying to blow their stimulus checks

    I was thinking that was BS until I saw it myself. Granted it was missing the blue bracket thing, thats still a helluva deal. Doubledealer normally goes $40 - $50 complete.

    The part that really made me smile was the seller, raviscollectables, better known as the buyer of that infamous "Million Dollar Transformers Auction" (more like $100K though), who had to mortgage his home to buy the transformers and now like a year later still can't move them cheap enough to make his money back. lol.

    $55.00 tops for a complete. Only if it's MISB itwill go for over $200.00. This is just a stupid bidding war going on this auction.

    That's a lot of cash for him, seller must be pleased! Incidentally what's a fair price for Doubleclouder, MISB, or boxed and unused?

    Interesting, I missed who eventually bought that.

    If you check his feedback, apparently he had quite a few success on selling his overpriced mib figures. Which is stupid because the price he's asking are close to MISB prices.
    Here's a mib doubledealer he sold for $340!

    Man, between that & the $13 one, you're breakin my balls. Why you always gotta be breakin my ball like that? I recently decided I need to get a Doubledealer and those prices are ridiculously awesome.

    Yeah, I'm looking for Doubledealer too (trying to slowly complete the US g1 line). He stayed at $202.50 on this auction but that guy's Siren made it up to $150...
