    wow, he lowered his price. Last week this was posted at the ebay section (and you should, too) and was selling for 250K. He lowered it by 25k

    Sorry for posting it under the toy section. It's just that this caught me off guard and I was like WTF???? You rented out an apartment just for your toys to live in it??? Something is wrong with that picture?? You know? :crazy:

    Alright guys, here's what we need:

    The address of said apartment.

    1 Crowbar
    1 moving van, large, filled with boxes full of packing peanuts.
    1 MP3 player with a continuous loop of Smooth Criminal.
    1 Police Scanner.

    Alright, who's with me?

    Take me along. I only want about... 10% of the total profit. See, I'd take out a mortage and buy that... if his collection comes with the apartment :p

    Oh yea, I posted this a few month's back because it's in my home town! I asked the guy if I could visit and he said, NO! LOL! He mentioned he was thinking about opening a toy store in the area to sell all his stuff. I guess that didn't happen.
    He's better off opening an ebay store and selling them individually.

    I didn't even try to see what individual stuff he had. I don't think even a complete MISB Diaclone AND MISB Zone collection could be worth that kind of bank. Jesus, if I had that kind of money to throw around, I'd be getting something vastly different than TFs. Anything my wife and kids wanted. If there was anything left over that was sizeable, I'd buy a Datsun 280ZX and repaint it.

    Words can't describe how baffled I am by fans and their prices. Like that dude selling Diaclone Blue Bluestreak for over 7 grand. Amazing. Harkens back to the day when I won an auction for a Desert Heat Night Man fig for $35 and the guy cancelled the auction and emailed me saying he wouldn't accept less than $125. ANY of the later UF figs were like this. Does this happen with other toy lines as well?

    Yeah. Somehow he thought he will make money off of the Animated Sunstorm and Shockwave exclusives when Target had that pricing FUBAR. Here is a pic from his photobucket account. Am I the only one that is sicken by this?

    First, he is CLEARLY not desperate for money. The guy has enough money to RENT AN APARTMENT to hold his collection. If anything he is TOO FREAKIN RICH.

    Second, I don't doubt that the collection COULD be worth over at least 50k. If you looked at the pictures, you would see (and GOD KNOWS WHY) he has like 10 copies of everything.

    I think the guy on PawnStars had a better chance of getting what he was asking then this guy.
