    He's going to relist more and more and they'll eventually be super cheap. He always does that but bidders never learn.

    I've never understood the people who just "have to have it now". Be curious to see what fool and his money are soon parted and just how much $$$ that'll be. This toy is going to be all over the place in 5 months for about $30-40usd.

    And you might be able to still get him for that price or even less a few months in advance.

    Trust me, there are lots of people who want it in advance. DOTM Megatron sell right now from $250 to $400. I've never done this in my life, but in shockwave's case I'm going try just this once.

    Megatron has sold for under $50 on Ebay lately. I know someone who was selling it $45.

    I like how its become common place to bitch and moan about the blurry crappy pics of new toys and people cant wait for a collector to do a review but then they mock the collectors spending lots of money to buy the toy to take pictures and post a review

    Did you read my reply? You don't have to spend shitloads of money to get new toys in advance, you just need to be patient and not jump on the first one that pops up on Ebay. I and others have gotten several prerelease toys for retail or less. Let Ebay newbies bid crazy amounts and wait, that toy will likely be relisted over and over, interest will eventually wear off as newer toys pop up and you'll get what you want for a good price.

    especially that once it's out and everyone has one it isn't any more special than anyone else's

    Mostly likely a lot less special, since those stolen toys are generally discarded for failing a QC check or discarded and or dumped for some other reason.
