    Nuts! Just saw that myself and was about to post on it. :)  Still, it begins... I hope that guy gets no bids or only one or two and sells that puppy at a loss.

    Yeah, there is no reserve on it so maybe someone can snag it for the $99 starting bid. I think that would be worse than no bids at all.

    And it sold for $283 something. Fuck. I was really hoping that one would have gone down the crapper.

    Take into account shipping from HTS and his Ebay fees and he made maybe $10, though :p

    $225. Taxes= approx $15, Shipping= approx $7. Ebay fees= approx $15, Paypal fees= approx $10. Approximate total = $272. So he made a whopping $10. He set shipping at $25 which of course is at least $15 over of what actual shipping is so he probably made a net of about $25. Still not worth the effort/gamble IMO. But it does show Hasbro (if they are monitoring) that there is a small market for these types of items.

    Looks like there is another one up already, by another seller
