    Alright, I could not believe this when I found it. Remember the RID / Universe Dreadwind and Smokejumper set? Not really the rarest item, but not the most common either. So how much would you be willing to pay for it? $30? $50? $100? Try about $300 US.

    Yep, I couldn't believe it either.

    Some sellers just have no idea when it comes to pricing.

    Also, how's about some scalping? TRU UK just marked down all the VP vs SS 2-packs to 15 quid each and this guy suddenly shows up with 10 of them for sale for 20 quid each. COINCIDENCE?

    Ebay:
    That's why I can't buy TFs on ebay any more, they're just too damn expensive.

    They're too expensive in the shops too.

    They're just too expensive in the UK full stop.

    I guess that's why a lot of my collection is car boot finds or Poundstretcher back in the day, picked up entire BW TM2 line for about 2 quid each. Occasionally find cool ones in Home Bargains too, think I got Universe MM Devastator there for £1 each peice. Nice.

    Bah, until someone is stupid enough to pay that, it means nothing.

    There's always some idiot on Ebay asking the world for something common... And before Ebay, they were doing it as collector's stores and antiques markets.
