    I don't know if someone already did this but I was looking thru a few members sales thread and I came across one that really bugs me... is universe acid storm with 30 or so dollars? If he is then ill sell mine for 40..... anyone? Jk ... what do you guys think?

    Well ebay shows around $20-25 on him so $30 isn't too far out there, especially if the seller just wants to make sure he covers himself on shipping. It's high but it sounds reasonable to me

    Well I'd say that now that the seekers have all been released one way or another at retail then yeah their probably looking to complete collections now. some of the earlier auctions on ebay ended at like 10 bucks but the most recent have all gone upwards of 25 + shipping

    People list whatever they want. No one has to buy it at that price from them.

    I'd rather see a price than not see a price and the seller expects a bidding war.

    Me too. Some of my stuff is probably overpriced, but it leaves room to negotiate. I don't really like making offers when price isn't listed cause I don't really want to lowball someone, don't want the back and forth, and I will not get into a bidding war with another member for an item. Contacted someone a few years back about an item that he had listed for $40. "Got a reply, I just told someone I'd sell it to them, but if you offer $50, I will sell it to you." I don't want to hose a fellow collector.

    what does it matter how much any member sells here? Just don't buy from that person then. There are plenty who sells their acidstorm for cheaper.

    I put my loose Acid Storm on ebay starting at $1 and it ended at $20 and change, if i remember right. I was surprised because I got a MOC one (bundled with another Universe deluxe) for $40.

    People are weird sometimes.

    man i picked the wrong time to start looking for henkei ramjet. i think he has become my holy grail, but on a side note i have quite a few non henkei classics that it may be finally be a good time to sell

    Maybe I'll try selling some of my extra seekers. I stocked up on the initial waves thinking I would repaint them into the missing seekers, but never got around to it, and since they have all been released one way or another now, not sure I really need more than 3 of each for my seeker collection, but we will see, it will be hard for me to let any of my seekers go, at any price. I need to take inventory first and see how many I actually have. :crazy:

    i got my AS for a clearance price at a WM.
    still, that was some time ago. but i understand the prices for the figure now.

    20-40 is not so bad, but gawd there are worse prices than that out there for worse figures.

    An item is only worth as much as someone will pay for it. I got my acid storm months after it disappeared from the shelves for like...$25 shipped off of a local ebay seller. He even brought it by my house! LOL .....talk about service......

    But that's ok though. It was worth it to me. I think the most I've paid is $40 shipped for the Ramjet ersico posted ( not counting the amount of loot I paid for the Henkei Starscream, ghost Starscream, TC, and Skywarp :| ).
