    looks like a bidding war between 2 of the bidders, sometimes happens if both parties really want the item. i guess an item is worth what the bidder thinks it is.

    Yeah, that's pretty mental right there. I have a Minty boxed original Sky Lynx which I'm looking to sell and if mine goes for the sum total of parts at that rate I'll be happy!

    the bidding wars btwn 2-3 ppl usually causes them to loose track of logic and sanity, and just bid it for competition and for the sake of pride. its a sad reality. Good for sellers, though.

    I sold a loose vintage one at this years botocn show for 120.00. So 15 dollar over is a little high, all up to who wanted it more. When I was buying up card g2 orange devastator peice I got into bidding war one a lot of 3. At the time it had the last card one I needed (mixmaster I think) but end up reselling the other 2 for more money then the lot cost me. Different transformers go for crazy amounts at time. I remember I was looking for a hot rod a few years back and it was going for over 150 complete so I waited and score a mib one on the 26th of december that year for 90 dollars.

    I think I may have a work bottom I will check when I get home

    Considering you can get a brand new unbroken complete reissue for around $50, that's just sad.

    The last bid from anyone with a high feedback was $20.00.

    I doubt any of the bidding after was legitimate.
