    People freak out over prices, but you must remember some people don't give a f&^%. They have money to burn and pay for convenience. You don't need everyone to pay a high price. You only need one.

    If you can and are willing, why not?

    That said, if you sell it for $180 or so, and assuming you paid $120, after eBay/PayPal fees, you'll probably net a profit of about $30-35. So it just depends on if that's worth it to you.

    Recently sold my Bubblegum Crisis Blu-ray for about $250, after buying it for $85. First time in years that I sold something without losing money on it (and frequently a lot of money).

    Well, that's good news. I'm not surprised. Hopefully, it'll happen soon. And if MT changes the thigh colors to white, that would be awesome.

    Welp that worked quicker than expected. Posted my MISB 3 hours ago on ebay and it already sold. Looks like my impatience from last year and buying two copies, ended up paying off in the end.

    Nothing's confirmed yet. But I'd be shocked if MT were one-and-done with this mold. It would be really surprising.

    Finally opened up my Dowbeat to display with Bounceback. I love these figures, but they will forever live in bot mode because -graaaaahgggahhhabagaga! - those leg transformations are a frickin' nightmare!

    Looked at ebay and they all go for 200 now. Wow, glad I got one for retail price. And remember hesitating a lot because of that price.

    I bought one of these with full reprolabels applied for £85 from a Facebook group... I can't believe the prices it sells for now!

    If anyone is willing to buy it for that price. Where is the improved ko for 50 bucks at? I hope we see it soon. I hope they fix the lower rear in car mode as well.

    Yeah, that and the leg transformation turn me off. I'll probably still pick one up if/when it gets reissued, but I won't be destroyed if that doesn't happen. Mostly, I just wish an official TT version would be possible.

    I mean, for what's going for on eBay, that's a great price given that it's two figures.

    I just don't understand why you'd list them together though.
