    My mouth dropped when I saw the Buy It Now price.And that shipping's insane too.There's no way Megatron would cost $175 in S&H

    :eek:

    If I recall correctly isn't G1 Megs like $500 or so MISB? In either case the seller WAY over priced it's BIN price and the buyer WAY over paid

    Some people just have WAY too much cash to throw away. My god, you can almost get a new car for that.

    Why not just buy a MISB one and get it graded yourself? It's asinine.

    I did a research on ebay for Megatron and found that someone bought a G1 Megatron on July 30th and paid $5000 for an ungraded one.

    I knew prices would go up when the Movie came out but this is insane.

    Dear dude that bought that Megatron for $12,000...

    I am planning to buy a house soon. You seem to have a lot of money available for frivolous expenses. Please give me some money. Or your AFA 90-graded Megatron, which I will promptly turn into money. Either will do.

    Its not a question of affordability, its a question of sound judgement. This person obviously has the sole goal to hold onto their transformers, and do not intend to sell them. NO WAY anyone would pay that again for that piece. If they are lucky they might recoup that money when the movie comes out. I paid $3600 for a megatron that is absolutely FLAWLESS and not AFA graded. Patience, and looking around pays off.

    EDIT: I just read that the box is only a 85, waaaaay overpaid. Not to mention its another shining example of AFA's incosistency. I have an 85 90 90 and it is 85 overall. BS

    I'll buy the KO, slap some paint and reprolabels on him, and call it done, all under about $50.00. Hell, I'll even buy one of Mirage's Boxes and it'll be around $100.00 or so and still be better than that.

    What the hell is wrong with these people???
