    I've talked to that seller, and apparently the buyer wants all five, I'm curious if either of them is aware that the total price is actually close to 3 grand. I think the buyer wants to buy all 5 for $562 TOTAL. Either way, someone's in for a surprise. The buyer with a $2810 invoice, or the seller with $2810 worth of ebay fees.

    That type of mistake makes sense. No way that thing is worth $560 even 5 years from now.

    Saw this too. Why do people even do that quantity feature? It always confuses the crap out of people.

    The whole set isn't even worth that much, much less a single figure from it. Even that single figure times five isn't worth that much. This fandom is weird, I tell ya.

    Maybe for the bidders, its cheaper than actually going to Botcon or buying the set down the road...

    And BTW, that buyer isn't me... more power to them! :)

    Because as far as ebay's concerned, That auction was for $562 x5 =$2,810.

    Oh wait, I see how that first post would make it look like $2810 IN FEES. I meant he'd have to pay whatever ebay fees were for an auction that ended for $2810, which, with the new fee hikes, probably wouldn't be cheap.

    If the guy had 5 to sell why not make it a 'buy it now' auction? Would've been easier and would've avoided confusion.

    I would sell my Prime for that price in a heart beat. I wonder if the buyer exactly pays up.

    I don't understand this one at all. These figures will never be worth that much. Nice sell though!

    Omg, for that price I would settle for a Overlord or Liokaiser, which I'm still looking for.

    i was the high bidder before the jackass ruined the auction. now it started over.the clown probably thought he was buying all 5 for 550+ not each.Some people never learn.Unless heero got 5 more.
