    I hate scalpers. Go buy Bumblebee and leave the other for people who don't want to be raped for them.

    As long as he/she isnt puching kids in the face to get these, everyone should just calm down. I have scalpers in my area too but nothing says we have to buy from them. Just take it with a grain of salt and carry on. Also, nothing here says that he is a scalper. Perhaps these are easier to find in his/her area. Open minds people.

    The fact that he's selling them for a minimum of $33/each says he's a scalper. If he was running his auction with the starting bid at $13/each, then I'd say, no, he's not a scalper.

    You just can't argue with that logic, hit the nail right on the head.

    See above. And I don't care if he gives 2 of them to blind homeless orphan children, doesn't change what he's doing here. And as much as he does in fact have the right to do so, I and my like-minded friends here have the right not to like it and voice our opinions about it, so please refrain from telling us to calm down.

    "Ha!" indeed.

    Thank you all for participating in an anecdotal social experiment as part of a psychology project that I'm working on.

    Clearly, these auctions were not meant to move.

    Initially, I had intended on distributing the Vehicons—at cost—to local collectors or returning them to the stores. But, after the, ahem, *choice* messages, I decided to reward the non-psychopaths whom have been unable to find a Vehicon with one—absolutely free. I've already contacted those for shipping info. They'll be sent out within the next few days (as I just got in from Australia).

    Again, thank you all.

    ^_^

    He has every right to sell these figures at the price he seems fit.

    And I have every right to call him a scumbag and a poltroon.

    So, you basically set up phoney auctions as an attempt to aggravate your fellow board members and then rub it in their faces when they got upset with you? Total troll.

    First, you make the assumption I care about this board; I don't. Secondly, you make the assumption I care you and others got upset with me; I don't. Perhaps most importantly, these are TOYS, a child's play thing!

    (And yes, I recognize that I make a huge assumption that you aren't a child sniffling over their play thing.)

    You don't care about the board, yet you donated money to support it.
    You don't care that people got upset with you, yet you claim to have done this as a social experiment.
    Yes, they are toys. However, to many of the people here, they are also collectables. To others, they are a source of livelihood as many of us customize them.

    You just did this to taunt people.

    Gee, ya got me! How did you discover my sole purpose was to taunt some man child in Pennsylvania with a collection of collectabl—I mean, collectibles? ^_~

    And don't assume the badge has anything to do with the boards. I donated money after one of the moderators halfway across the globe helped me out with a technical issue. It was my way of saying "thank you."

    PS Your reaction is more than I could have expected. Again, thank you.
