    Like, I'm a fan of the movies and I kinda think that's a cool figure. But I don't think I'd even pay retail for it :lol  Good luck to that guy.

    I... What? Legends Wheelie? For a Ben Frank? I literally can't even come up with some witty comment about this.

    I have the figure, and I can tell you it's not worth $5, let alone $100.

    I almost want to message the guy and ask if he's either high, or meant to list it with less zeros.

    I believe so!

    I actually looked at some more of his listings, and they were just as, if not more, ridiculously priced. Walmart Exclusive Skywarp, Ejector, Scalpel, and Ravage for $100, as well as Chromia, Sideways, and Jolt for $125. Finally, what I think is the dumbest thing he has, a $200 Voyager Long Haul.

    This guy is delusional if he thinks he's going to sell a single one of these figures.

    It appears TFs are not his primary area of expertise, and he has sold a few rare or expensive items in the past for a fair sum of money. Perhaps he is just a bit naive about what is what TF-wise.

    He has 3P stuff on there as well. You don't just happen across that and especially getting everything about the identification right. He's a collector, he just things his stuff is worth far more than it really is.

    I love that he's selling Apollyon for $300 when you can buy him at BBTS or TFS for half that.

    I've seen this before. If it was merely one Transformer, I give the seller the benefit of the doubt that they are completely unfamiliar with the figure and price it stupidly. With many items... my mind turns to a far more nefarious place.

    This seller is likely banking on someone who, being completely unfamiliar with the items, assumes they *must* be valuable, and buys them based on that.

    It is a dirtbag move that sometimes fools goodhearted people. I speak from experience.

    My mother and sister are completely unfamiliar with any specifics of this hobby, and barely able to use online shopping. Come holidays and birthdays, though, they want to get me something I'll like, and sometimes drift unknowingly toward overpriced figures. I happily accept these, being polite, but sometimes cringe at the price they paid. Fortunately, they would never spend a hundred bucks on a toy (and have no clue that I ever have), but there have been plenty of cases of them paying in the $30 range for a figure that should have cost them half that price.

    While Wheelie is a fine Legends figure, he isn't even worth $10 let alone $100.

    Here I thought Duane Reade charging $14 for him was nuts. :lol 

    That guys just greedy if he thinks people will pay that much. Sort of like Killerbeesomethingnumberoranother with Glyos.
