    I've got an auction going that includes G1 Trypticon, Metroplex, and Scropronok. Also include a large lot of other stuff. Just click on the ebay link to the right and happy bidding. Also if someone from TFW2005 wins the auction and they live in U.S. i'll split the cost of shipping with them. This offer is only good for people that are members.

    seems just like scorp, metroplex and trypticon with a bunch of tech specs. why do you have botcon and movie in the description on ebay?

    sorry dude but that isn't worth $500

    What you have to do is start it at a low price and then people get nutty and the bidding would probably reach $500 lol but you can't start it at $500. Bidders are stupid like that.

    Example G1 Jetfire. The bidding usually reaches like $170 something like that. But if someone was to start the bidding at $150 no one bids! I see this happen alot it's ridculous. But I have gotten some good stuff, it happens with everything not just toys. I really really really wanted a green size 68 weaver rain sheet for my horse. I was bidding on one that started @ $19.99 the bidding went up to $46 after my initial bid was passed I just went to a Buy it now for $29.99 there were about 10 of them BIN size 68 SAME EXACT everything but these people that outbid me kept going up to $46 when they could of just BIN it for $30. :p

    I tried starting it at a low price and my reserve is $500 b/c i'm wanting to get a ps3 before the price goes back up. Thanks for all your help but i've tried letting bidders jack up the price with no luck

    Oh and vnutz look up past auction for all 3 of these and you'll see that they run about $500 combined price if you purchase them individually so please don't tell me what my stuff is worth, i think i know.

    well i have good news and bad news for you. the good news is that the ps3 will not go back up in price. it went down to $500 for a reason. because no one is buying it. right now its a failure. when in the history of video game consoles has a system went up in price? the wii is killing them right now. i actually bought a ps3 to sell during xmas time and i couldn't even get rid of it for cost. it is just sitting in my closet so i'll just take a loss on it.

    and the bad news is that you might know your stuff is worth $500 but i dont think anyone else knows that. so until they are informed i dont think it will sell for $500. not to be insulting but as a collector myself i wouldn't pay $500 for that auction.

    your items are not even complete. even if we said they were all worth $150 each it still wouldn't reach $500 let alone your BIN price.

    dont take it personally but just telling you from a collector's point of view i wouldn't pay $500 plus shipping for that. maybe someone else will but i think you over priced your items. and the auction ending too soon and not reaching the reserve of $500 should speak for itself.

    i just looked over your recent past auctions and they went pretty high. so i guess just go for your price till someone takes it. maybe there is someone out there willing to pay $500 for that

    but shouldn't you have enough for your ps3 by now?

    Yeah i would've had my ps3 by now but i had to pay for my botcon stuff first b/c i had someone pick the stuff up for me and i couldn't leave them hanging. And i understand what your talking about with prices and sorry if i came off the wrong way ( having a bad day at work ) but to be honest i really don't want to get rid of these and the only way i will is if i can sell them for enough to buy a ps3 or i'll trade them for a 60gb ps3. Whichever i can do is fine by me. Thanks for your input

    yeah its funny how that happens, I've been watching spiritbreaker22 's light up energon cubes, which tfsource has for 32.99. He posts 1 a day, most days they've been ending at $28-31, but a couple of the days it has gone to $43 ($10 over retail!!)

    Or I love when the same first bidder who put in a low bid instead of a BIN option on an item (say, $30, when BIN is $85, saw this with botcon mirage) ends up bidding well above the BIN price (being the first bidder, they knew there was a BIN and what its price was), say $115...

    You can set your max bid higher than the BIN price? Even if you could... why?!

    I think once someone bids the BIN is no longer an option.... but I could be totally wrong so hopefully someone else can clear that up.
