    I was watching this auction, I was thinking about bidding on it but decided not to because I want something else more.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=220224615596&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=012

    I figured this would end at around $60 - $90.

    :jawdropper: WHAT HAPPENED??? Repugnus isn't worth THAT much.


    Yeah, see? I was gonna bid on this one too:

    This is more like it. $84 for Grotusque. So what the hell do you think happened with Repugnus???

    Out of the 3, I used to have Doublecross & Grotusque. Now I only have Doublecross. I would like to get Repugnus but DAMN! Nobody should have to pay that much.


    Hey! Maybe now everybody that has a Repugnus will list them hoping to get the same price & I can snag one real cheap!?!?!


    He could have just bought this one for $150.00.

    judging from buyer's history, he's either shilling(Highly unlikely) or just have too much $$ to burn(newbie account since january/2008 and already made 271 purchases, sellers love this kind of people)

    I got this bug complete for $15, he's cheap especially if you can find him in a lot.

    well, it might be one of those rare instances where you have n00bies bidding and have no idea where to look, so they see the only one on ebay at the time and start a bidding war. one should be so lucky as a seller.

    there will be others, in better shape for way less. let the perrson who bought this toy enjoy it, they deserve it.

    thanks for helping realize that man, I am sort of a idiot myself and I speak out of turn sometimes. let me rephrase that. let the guy who won the toy have all the fun in the world that his hard earned $275 lets him. I'm sure he/her will love it. I think this sounds a might better. my bad.-MR

    edited my previous post also.

    Sellers can't leave negative or neutral feedback for buyers anymore right? So if this guy doesn't pay we'll never know. Is that correct?

    $275 is way to much to pay for Repugnus. I really cant think why someone would pay that much.
    I'd say the seller was a happy as a child at xmas when they seen how much was bid for it.

    Oh!


    The buyer has 100% positive feedback, guess he's actually gonna pay that much.:drunk  That's the 1st auction that I was actually gonna bid on that went up that high. Never seen that happen before. I freaked out when I saw the final price.
