    C,mon be fair...

    ..it costs a lot of money to post ads with lots of colors and flashy graphics! But seriously,that is WAY overpriced for the figure and the sad part is someone who doesnt know that much about collecting or toy prices will probably end up buying it.

    That 90 dollar price tag will become less crazy as the years pass by.

    he probably doesn't want to sell it.

    there's a ebay seller here who sells RECENT tfs, 3 times their original price, loose. i realize he doesnt really want to sell them. just showing off probably.

    If this sort of thing bothers you so much, why don't you leave the guy a message in the "ask a question" section "informing" him that the price is ridiculous? That way, assuming they check, anyone who doesn't know the true value of the toy could have a heads up.

    he clearly knows the true value of the toy, and is taking the piss.

    you send him a message saying as much and he'll delete it and return to his endless vigil, waiting for some chump to cough up the cash. maybe they will. likely they won't. either way he's sat at home rubbing his grubby hands together looking at the stack of [​IMG] MSIB!! RARE!!!! IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!!! ONLY A LITTLE BIT DAMAGED!!! [​IMG] mp skywarps he just bought for $25 a pop, planning what he'll do when he sells them for enough money to buy the world.

    good for him, i say. then again - perhaps he would be better off actually, you know, getting a f*king job :D

    you can make an offer, for a lower price if you want. See if he'll go for $30.

    Ebay:
    I paid $45 shipped for a MISB voyger and as Bill Cosby said about his dad's sad stories, "And I was THANKFUL for it."

    Considering that on Ebay i can't get a freaking break on a Classics Rodimus for less than $50, i feel okay with my purchase.

    but i think the cheese done slid off his cracker for selling that dented up box, minor wear figure for $90.

    I have seen more ridiculous prices, but still. I don't think he even wanted to sell it since he put it up for that price.

    Oh well fair enough, I don't really know my way around Ebay and I didn't know that he could delete those.


    I guess it's ok in the end. If someone is willing to pay that much, they clearly think it's worth it. I wouldn't spend that much, but others might. Technically everyone wins?
