    About 2 weeks ago one I watched on ebay sold for $255 plus 25 to ship to the US. I could not believe it.

    This is the "norm" for un-released, yet-to-be-released, never-gonna-get-release kinda figure.

    Some people just MUST own it beforehand. :lol

    Bragging rights is worth that much to some hard-core collectors.

    This isn't a case of someone asking an outrageous price for an unreleased figure. The price has been driven up by the bidders.

    You don't really need to ask "is it worth this price" because, obviously, it is to someone. Let them bid how they want to bid - it shouldn't bother you nor warrant an thread about it, IMO.

    It's the gotta have it now thing.

    I payed a pretty penny to get Alt Mirage a few months early... and in the same circumstances, i'd do it again.

    Ebay:
    Well, my opinion is this, if you want it you'll pay for it. I bought Animated Sunstorm litterally 6 months before I saw him in stores. I over paid but wasn't waiting a half a year to get him either. I'm kicking myself because I didn't jump on the ones and only Animated Voyager Thundercracker and Blackout that were on Ebay. It was probably 5 months ago and I said the same thing. "I'll wait and pay retail." Well, I'm still waiting for anything to pop up on these two, and would even settle for an overpriced Import at this point.

    Yeah...I really can't find myself a reason to justify this one. But, with that being said, if I had the money to spend like there was no tomorrow I'd drop it in a heartbeat.

    But I'm poor. So no.

    yeah, the winner probably feels really great right now, being one of a select few to actually have that toy. a hundred some bucks and a few months later, not so much
