    A bit over the top. I wonder how much that stuff is really worth?

    Totally awesome collection, but a million dollars?I'd expect them to come to life and give me a live rendition of the '86 movie for that!

    Yeah, not enough MISB to be honest with you. Maybe $40-50k at a push.

    I think this is just the start of the market being flooded with collections and 'boxes from the attic'. Maybe the flood will drive prices down and I can finally get my G1 Darkwing and Dreadwind. Come-on flood gates....

    "I'm going to sell some of the best memories I had with my husband who died of AIDS to finance my life with a new husband"

    way to disrespect your former love, bitch.

    Best auctions have no personal histories. Worst auctions have the most babble. This would then be in the running for worst auction ever.

    Her husband ain't dead. He's hiding.

    Beautiful collection...and an interesting "story" that was put together to go with it. Too bad the seller smoked crack right before listing it.

    I wouldn't say that...it could be a smart move. Like it says in the auction, come celeb might buy it - crazy eBay auctions do sell once in a while to rich people with money to waste.

    If this sells, I am going to finish my collection and put it up too. Shit, even my dinobots are still sealed and and I have tons of Masterforce, Victory and zone stuff. I love my transformers, but for $1,000,000.00 I'll focus on my other hobbies.

    Or sell all your stuff for a million bucks, then come on here or other places on Ebay and buy it back for less than 25K, making 975,000 in the process!

    same here. But I'll pretend to be a widow and add 'i had to stop collecting when my ex-Astronaut Fireman Medal-of-Honor recipient husband died of gamma radiation while saving lives, shielding others from an accidental laboratory blast while working on his nobel-candidate viral research.'

    that should make my 1 mil payday a sure thing

    and if that doesnt work, I'll add

    'from a smoke free home'

    and then sit back and wait for the cash to come rollin in.
