    Have been collecting mainly from ebay ... one thing I've noticed that the majority of the sellers have actually been female :eek: 

    I reckon some poor sons/boyfriends have had their other halfs slyly selling off their collections.... got a MIB Hotspot... female... Fort Max body.,.. female... fort max parts... female...

    Bizarre ?? I reckon there is something underhand goin on lol

    Women seem to sell more than men on ebay...at least to me it seems. Also, they seem more inclined to go the scalper route on ebay store front.

    I agree. Also I think it could be a case of "selling the kid's old toys in the attic" thing.

    Ebay:
    I have my vote on this.
    Almost every transformer lot I have bought has been a mom selling her grown up kids toys.

    I had one once email me back asking if she could rebuy what she sold to me a month later because her son found out she sold his toys and threw a hissy fit.

    lol....i would have asked her for her son's address so I could promptly return his possessions.


    then i would have mailed him some feces in G1 boxart with a note reading "eat my crap, loser!"


    and then I would have put down the bourbon....but not the crack pipe.

    Well, just like sex, women found out they can get us to pay outrageously for transformers too.

    I figure it's too painfull for most guys to let go their hobbies so the shadier side of the sexes steps in and tries to make us men by cutting any childish ties.
