    Here is a thread I would like to start called is it really worth that much?
    RULES
    Every couple of days some one can post a pic from ebay, gumtree or craigslist if there are adds up there with stupid over blown prices where we can discusss laugh out lowd even at it and vote is it worth that much with a ya or a na. But you must show a link to the item so people of all levels from novice collector to the more extreme collector can look and vote.

    First subject united kup, nothing wrong with this bot until you look at the price
    Transformers UN17 TF United Autobot Kup | eBay

    I say na what do you say?

    A while back, somebody posted a link on here to an Amazon seller that had Magnaboss listed for $14,999. Evidently they just forgot the decimal when they listed the price, because they changed it to a much more reasonable (but still high) $149.99 a short while later.

    okay so we are all at an agreement that this seller is ripping people off lol, yeah I saw this and I was like wtf? The only reason why I found it was because I was searching for a new kup as when I bought mine the ball joint port in kup's head is broken and he can't keep his head on properly and it was a factory stuff up one. So I have considered getting a ehobby one and the new heads because I love that blue and the scratch look on his body to show age, I think a little rust on it would also look awesome but that's just me lol.

    That would be me . and yeah they changed it but for a while it was WTF moment. and the Kup is way to expensive. I don't think a loose complete minty G1 Kup would be worth that much.

    Was the head ball joint actually broken, or is his head just floppy. My Kup needed his head "re-seated" by just gently pressing down till it popped into place. Just thought I'd throw it out there...

    no the port inside his head was broken! I was going to buy the new kup heads with the cygars thinking brilliant the head will just go right on it but when I found out the kup head is just the front and you still have to use the back of the hasbro head I was like damn it! But I have seen the ehobby one around with the heads on ebay for just over $45 i think so I will purchase those ones instead.

    You think that's bad? I've seen people fight over Henkei Ratchet up to £138 ($213)!

    Yup, then you definitely need a new one. I've seen one or two around locally while out hunting for the Junkheap / Sky Shadow wave. Kup, Warpath, and Wheeljack were the other figures getting put out with them, Wheeljack seems to be the one peg warming though...
