    Looks like he jacked up the prices since botcon, the galaxy convoy was only 1k, kicker was 400 and the others have a slight increase.

    Of the ones listed, I would most like to have that Gold Rodimus Prime. I could easily live without the rest.

    Even as a MISBer, that AFA'd Black Tracks just makes me chuckle. $500 for the opportunity to stare at a plain white box inside an acrylic case.

    LMAO. Not the best of display pieces.

    Collector one: "I have an AFA graded MISB Blacks Tracks Lucky Draw figure."
    Collector two: "Let's take a look at it then. I have always wanted to see a Lucky Draw toy."

    Collector one shows collector two the Tracks

    Collector two: "What the hell? It's just a white box. How do you even know he's in there? It could be a box of rocks for all you know."
    Collector one: "I know. I can sense that Black Tracks inside."
    Collector two: "......."

    This. Honestly, it's already worth something. Don't bump the price higher just cause you AFA'd it.

    Keep pimpin analbolik. May be one day you'll find something actually worth what your asking for and you have to put a best offer down to explain how really pimpin you are. Or you wont have to buy more than 10 to specualte what couldve happened with all the loot you best offers made you. I'm out pimpin', but I be watchin'. LOL.

    ...not totally sure what all that means but it doesn't matter...what I've bought and turned around and sold have obviously been worth the price to those that bought them. They're happy and I'm happy so everything is good and balanced. Not really sure if you're taking shots or joking around but I won't assume either way cause these are just words and without hearing them, there's no way to tell so I'll just let them be what they are...words. I've broke bread with you before so I know you are cool to deal with and I'm not sure why you would take shots (if you are) but you never know - such is life. Anyway, "I'm already gone..."

    I've been thinking about this for a bit, ever since this thread popped up and alerted me of Blue Flame Convoy's presence on TFSource...does anyone think it'd be tacky/stupid/inept if someone bought an AFA'd Lucky Draw and cracked the plastic case open so they could get to the box and open the toy itself, for display with the rest of your own collection? Normally I know it'd be an awfully bad idea to buy an AFA'd item and do what was just described (why buy an AFA'd G1 Prime in box to get it out of the case, when I can buy any of the reissues or just cobble together a loose one in decent shape, for example)...but these are Lucky Draws. Known items with extremely limited runs that don't always show up for sale all that often. Even if the prices on TFSource are a bit inflated (?...I haven't exactly tried pricing Blue Flame Convoy so I'm not sure what a ballpark figure is for what it usually goes for) from earlier, that Blue Flame Convoy is the one item I've been willing to shell out mega-bucks for (I've yet to spend over $250 on anything I've picked up), but spending that much money on this particular Lucky Draw (something that looks like a normal figure, and not one of the chromed-all-over kinds) only to leave it in a plastic case that feels like it'd only come in handy to resell it down the road when I have no intention of selling any of my crap unless forced to, it doesn't feel right.

    It may be gone, for all I know, by the time I finally can and do pull the trigger, if I do go that route...but it's something I've been debating and was wondering what others thought.
