    Douche bag,

    I confront guys like you when you walk down my toy aisle's at Target. And make you feel bad. I hate you.

    love,

    A little capitalism never condemned anyone to hell, geeze.

    I liked it. I'm glad he apologized. I just wonder why it was deleted.

    pfft you couldnt make me feel bad when i was doing it, and likely couldnt make me feel bad if i did it again. I dont do it because I have no need to, and id never do it with transformers because they are something I believe in and something that i want to see thrive.. and I dont see depriving the local fans/kids of toys just so I can make a fast buck as being beneficial to my cause. I'm definitely not above doing it again for other things though, if i ever needed the money id take advantage of sweet sweet capitalism in a second and naysayers be damned because you always look after #1.

    If its true, I label him as 'stupid greedy kid' rather than a true scalper. Hopefully he REALLY DID learn his lesson.

    As much as Id like to insult the scalpers, this guy is an exception.
    Props to him for coming clean with it. Atleast he has some decency to be honest , and have some remorse about it.

    considering they're all over the place now, I kinda find the scalper issue old hat, and actually kinda funny. yes, I was lucky enough to find one in the summer, but knew they'd be abundant eventually, as long as people were patient.

    Damn! $250 each...... That's a one hardcore scalper. Then ask for forgiveness. I'd tell him to donate all that money and forgiveness shall be granted.
