    Good luck on your sale. I'm really surprised at how quickly these things shot up in value.

    I'm not surprise actually. It sold out very quickly so the demand is there. Granted alot of the buyers has the intention of reselling so I'm sure once people start receiving theirs and it starts hitting ebay prices will go down some but still be quite a bit higher than what TFCC charged I think.

    I admit I'm going to watch this auction. Depending on how much it goes for in these auctions I might consider selling mine when I get it. I didn't plan to when I preordered it but tempting...

    Depends on if you purchased the P/CPs as a member or not. If you did so as a non-member, you would have paid $89 per figure (I believe). That doesn't even include S/H. So that $125, while nice, is not a whole lot of profit. Especially when you factor in the eBay/PayPal fees.

    Now if you purchased them as a member, good for you ;) . You will definitely be happy with that price.'

    I should add, however, that I don't condone scalping. I believe anymore than 2 P/CPs is overkill. I also believe there should be a limit on how many exclusives you are able to purchase.

    I see two others on there atm. One thats at 138 and change with 2.5 days left and another with a 350 buy it now. I honestly doubt these should be priced at 350 but i wouldnt be surprised to see it go about 160.

    I didn't see the one for $350. That is a scary price. I hope to goodness nobody actually buys it for that price. That is never good for the market.

    EDIT: Found the $350 auction. Sheesh. The guy doesn't even have it yet. What an.....excuse my french, ass.

    When i purchase an extra its always to either have a display piece or spin it into something else. If i didnt have a pending deal for cash i would try to trade this for pieces im missing (and you usually cannot find for sale easily).

    Oh, I am not pointing fingers at you. Ultimately, it is your money. Nobody can tell you how to spend it. If you had wanted to get 10 P/CPs, that would be your decision. I can relate too. I like to have one loose figure and 1 boxed figure.

    I think the TFCC has done nothing to discourage scalping. They really need to enforce order limits on certain pieces.

    I'm waiting to see where these settle. I have an extra one that I bought just to trade for something I want. I'm hoping to maybe inlcude this for a trade for Botcon Rodimus.

    I believe that is TFW2005 user bradforj, of course I could be wrong. And yes, he is doing okay. Considering his work for the community (that HM Hi-Q stuff), I don't fault him for making a few bucks here.

    It's certainly within his right to sell them for whatever the market will bear. But it doesn't mean it stings any less for those of us who were unable to just get one.

    If we want to point fingers, let's do so at the club itself. There should be a limit on the number you can order on something like this. I can justify the purchase of 2, but not much else.

    But again, congrats to those that were able to order him. That is how things go sometimes.

    I feel for you but I have a feeling places like BBTS brought up a majority of that toy. Call me crazy but it wouldn't surprise me to see them show up soon there.
