    I have seen some on clearance at TRU for 16 as well as TJmaxx stores having him for cheap.

    Holy crap barricade has some of the highest secondary market value right now. Checked ebay and most are 80-100 BIN. He is more expensive than Mudflap.

    We get shafted because they don't carry "old ass stock" and even if they did....at least here in NYC, we would not find them for $16 bux....and new stuff its already sold out from what Ive seen in NYC...

    Yeah, NYC really isn't the ideal place for toy hunting. The prices are awful, except for a few small hobby shops, but then you have to be careful that you're not buying KO's. There was one in Chinatown that had like 5 HA Mudflaps for $25 a pop, but I didn't buy them because I was afraid they were knock offs.

    These were available at tjmax/marshalls last year for 16.99 a bit before xmas time. I'm not that into barricade but I decided to get him on a whim there last year due to the price.

    eBay sellers are asking for $80 to $100 BIN but if you look at the completed listing, they still sell for as low as $35 to $75 on average

    Its still seems high. I would not have expected this guy to appreciate as quickly as he has. I know its not HUGE but compared to retail and the fact that some stores still have them on clearance its shocking. I have seen him within the alst 2 months at a tru in my area.

    I picked one up at TJ Maxx for $16.99 last week, so maybe they are still popping up.

    Before opening him I watched a video review on youtube and wasn't that impressed, so he's on Ebay now, ends tonight. Just hit the big white button there to the left.

    I picked up a HA Jazz and Bumble Bee at TJMaxx for $16.99 each. If I find a HA Barricade, I'm grabbing it.
