    I don't know what people think they're bidding on for this auction: http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=200228248496&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=010

    But Gun Majin is NOT worth anywhere near $160. Maybe $50-75 tops.

    I get shocked here and there by some of the seemingly loose buyers with deep pockets on ebay over the last few months. Loose complete Doubledealer for over $200? I'm just watching a loose vintage Sideswipe (no weapons, maybe c6 condition) going for over $50 too...

    so if its not worth that much............

    why did it just sell for that much?

    how do you determine market value , if not by current selling prices?

    I think anomalies and general current prices/value can be fairly and clearly separated. Just cuz one thing sold for a certain price once doesn't make it worth that. And this, as with $200 Doubledealer (you don't think that's his market value do you?), I feel safe to say, are anomalous cases.

    It's only worth what's someone's willing to pay for it.

    We know you got a great deal on it though, lol.

    The problem is that this guy doesn't pop up very often on ebay, since he is an old toy afterall. Wasn't he released in the early 1980's, same as the Diaclone toys?
