    I'm guessing its botcon related.

    Not seeing loads of auctions I wanna bid on - normally have a long long long watch list by now.. is this a botcon related drought do you think? Not really been collecting long enough to know.. peeps holding onto things for botcon?

    Also if it is a traditional happening - will there be lots of post botcon auctions of goodness up?? Hope so!

    Either that or I'm getting more picky on what I bid on lol

    On a side rant - really wish they would split the generation one section up into a new item / vintage section... really noticing the amount if recent g1 stuff up at the moment (the reproduction stuff and the gimmick stuff - though there was a cool autobot watch which was tempting lol)

    Might because of all those KOs, do a search on Devastator or Menasor and 90% of the search result are filled with cheap knock offs.

    It almost seems like there's more KO G1 stuff than any other line right now.

    :( 

    Not just me then, being in the uk sucks - do a UK only search and there is everything but the vintage G1's... Should start collecting KO's only never seem to be short of them on there

    Going to trawl the US site and see if I can convince sellers to send internationally lol

    I'd agree, it seems like a low time for a while, the sort that often comes right after Christmas when everyone is spended out.

    I've noticed that too lately, so I've been getting other lines like R.I.D. and reissues I'm going to wait until the end of May start of June before I start seriously selling on ebay. People will have their economic stimulus checks, and hopefully spend more on toys then.

    I just spent $600 on a huge lot, so I won't be buying on ebay for a while.(Have to make an agreement with wife that I won't be shopping on Ebay for 3 months, lol)
    Getting a huge tax refund back this year, but I don't really want to blow them all on toys.(Space is already becoming an issue)

    I find it discouraging to look through pages of MISB Movie Bumblebees looking for anything cool...

    This started happening in the past few weeks. I've noticed it too. Especially with G1 boxes. There were tons of "Box ONLY for MIB" auctions & now there's hardly anything. I had a huge watch list & now I'm only watching 2. I hope it picks up again because I missed a couple good "box only" auctions & now I can't find anything.
