    Talk about inflating prices

    Wow...., just wow; I was in the amazon.com website and spotted a DELUXE "25th anniversary " Starscream (universe 2.0 Starscream ) for...get this $6499 US dollars (and it also had the gonads to say only one left in stock)
    Jajajajajajajajajajaja I really don't think this seller thinks that the'd be someone out there that'll pay that much; right?
    Whaddya guys think.

    Note: can anyone show me how to fix the title; it's supposed to say Talk about.
    Thanks.

    Amazon sellers are sometimes known to be delusional.

    I just saw a RotF Ravage in person for $50.

    Hint: I can go to TRU and get one for less than $5.

    By the way, surely you mean $64.99?

    EDIT: Shit, no, he actually means 65 thousand!

    Just go to amazon.com and look for Starscream g1 and you'll see it on one of the further pages ( I figure since it is a G1 deco that's why it comes up under that search ).

    Go to your first post here and go to edit. Then go advanced. There will be the thread title so you can edit it to be right.
