    BBC News - Ram Man collector Jamie Moakes hopes for gold prices

    Interesssssting. Basically this guy has decided to try to create his own valuable commodity with 80's Ram man, he intends to buy them all up to create the rarity that will drive the value up.

    He's got a long way to go though, 151 out of around 2,000,000? Hmmm. He is a performance artist though.

    So what would happen if some of us decided to go off and buy all the G1 Fortress Maximuses ever produced or something? Realistically what G1 TF was produced in the fewest numbers? Some Euro exclusive? G1 Overlord? Machine Wars Optimus Prime? '07 Legends Megatron?

    Who could we change from plastic to gold?

    that'd be like trying to corner the market on twin twist figures. wasn't there someone who actually was doing that with the decepticon powermaster jets?

    Dumb. It requires supply AND demand.

    That reminds me of this asshole on eBay named playdia. He used outrageous bids to buy up any show-character Beast Wars, Armada, Energon, or Cybertron figures he could. Every time I tried to buy a BW Scorponok the douche would outbid me and overpay. Now I can't get one for less than $60.

    This person won't be so successful.
