    Amazon.com: Used and New: Transformers Movie 2 Leader Jetfire

    Sheesh. He was just on there (Amazon) at suggested retail a few days ago and already the douches are scalping. I can't wait to get this guy at Wal-Mart, Target or TRU at regular price.

    Anyone who pays close to $100 for a figure who's already started showing up in stores deserves to pay double.

    These Amazon 3rd party sellers who mark up prices to ridiculous levels are all douches.

    They remind me of Brian's Toys. The most douche bag action figure retailer that marks up their toys, especially vintage ones (and their AFA graded material) to artificially stimulate the market.

    Yeah, dammit. Just saw that a few hours ago. I waited too long. Hope Amazon themselves restock him soon.

    Um wow, I got mine for 42 bucks and some tax. That's just ridiculous, but what's even more is that someone will actually pay that.

    I wish. Amazon is always way overpriced. They take advantage of impulse and uninformed shoppers. That place is pretty much only good for books and cd's (what's that?!) nowadays.

    Free market economy - It's sadder that someone is willing to buy for that much than that it's for sale for $100

    I would wait a few weeks for leader Jetfire. There will be plenty on the shelves. As for Ravage. Every time I go to Target there is at least two waiting on the pegs for someone to buy.

    I can't imagine anyone buying from those Amazon 3rd party scalpers; however, I'm pretty sure they get a few bites here & there from totally ignorant purchasers otherwise they wouldn't bother or continue to list these outrageously priced figures.
