    I think what bothers me more is that this article seems to put forward collectibles as a viable financial investment, which will at best increase speculation and at worst lose a lot of people a lot of money.

    Well, I think my 401K and my TF collection will disagree with you. Since I started collecting my 401K dropped 20% and my collection increased 50+%.

    Not that I do really think of this as investments, but today, almost no investment is a good investment. Shit, I make more money gambling then I do on mutual funds, or stocks.

    I have to find something better to invest it.

    Not to mention that they talk about them being worth thousands in their original boxes, then show a picture of a toy that's unboxed and in terrible shape. That Cykill looks like something you'd find in a pile of old crap at a yard sale, not being sold as a collectible.

    Yeah, aside from Cy-kill's not being a Transformer, are there really vintage Transformers worth thousands?

    I wonder how much that opened, beat-to-hell Cy-kill is worth. :lol

    Go-Bot Cy-Kill image

    "man-to-machine toys"

    "Some loose Transformers that have been played with can still earn you up to $100 each"

    That is such epic amounts of fail for such a short article - wow. The "up to $100" part really made me laugh. Obviously they didn't take one solitary minute to check eBay :)

    That's even worse than I imagined. I had figured they'd used a picture of a crappy Armada toy like Sideswipe, or something.
