    Probably that G1 Bumblebee for $1000. I'm sure there's worse examples out there.

    I bet even Bill Gates won't pay for those. Those prices are hideously ridiculous.

    Although it might be worth it now, I got a kick out of the guy who put the FansProject Scyther armor on Ebay for 400+ when it was still being sold for like 100.

    Anyone who thinks an opened and slightly worn figure is worth as much as it would be if it was MIB or MISB.

    Yeah this was at Botcon 2009. The dealer told me that the figure was super rare. I told him that I could buy it for $8 and he seemed surprised.

    Ebay:
    I know it's a high demand figure, but it seems that WST Soundwave is waaay overpriced. Such a huuge price for such a tiny figure. There is one on ebay that is going for $100! I get the novelty of having a tiny figure but if you can get a G1 normal sized Soundwave for less than that then there is something odd about paying $100 for a figure that is about the size of a quarter.

    Yeah, all of the official WST figures are insanely overpriced, other than Thrust.
    And this doesn't really count, but almost every Power Rangers Megazord is insanely overpriced. $300 for a loose figure. Really?
