    Don't think any of those figures are really worth that amount of $$$...maybe the Run/Muck set if you didn't get them as a club member...

    Yeaah... Not worth the price.

    Might be better off buying from TFsource or somewhere else.

    those prices are really way out of the ballpark, but if they bring some to the njcc it would be nice to see them in person.

    I was never a fan of his prices. A good friend of mine who went to Botcon grabbed me Runabout, Runamuck, SG Drift, -&- the SG Botcon2012 t-shirt for $310. That's a good deal. These not so much..

    I'll get em eventually. Probably. Maybe. Eh..

    If I could find it, I'd post a link to the thread about waiting to buy Botcon exclusives and how they usually get cheaper once the inital "mad rush" is over. I can't find it though. Bottom line: be patient and you should be able to get these guys way cheaper.

    Holy guacamolio! It's probably cheaper to learn to paint this shit yourself. And that sucks.

    They have Alternity pretty cheap. They must of bought extra exclusives from the Botcon just to sell to us, how thoughtful of them. Thanks Toy Arena, your the best.

    I really don't see the prices that out of line from the market, or even past asking prices from retailers after the convention. If I didn't have the Junkions, they may have been tempting.....or if I had money for a second set of them right now.

    Why is this thread in the news and rumors?

    This whole thread is a lame advertisement for way overpriced items that can be bought cheaper even through ebay auctions.

    Sounds like your advertising this. You haven't been a member here long either... only 9 posts... hmmm... Anyone who buys this auction is a moron with too much money on their hands and the lack of patience to try and wait for SDCC.

    If said moron DOES have too much money on their hands, I know some great charities to donate to.

    100% agree with this.

    Because he's a paying sponsor of the site, just like the BBTS and TFSource threads...maybe when my shop gets bigger I'll throw in for ad space too and we can have a regular Comic Ink thread :p

    It's really... really simple. Be patient and wait for prices to drop, and then you'll snag them on eBay for way less than rip off internet stores.

    The only set I see not dropping in value are the Junkions.
