    I didn't know where this topic would fit better so here goes...

    I decided to hit up Toysrus today on our way to the movies to see Iron Man 2. Lo and behold, hanging from the pegs was Arcee.

    I already have Arcee thanks to Mykticon and I have no intention of putting her up on ebay. Even though I can really use the money, it wouldn't feel right and it wouldn't be fair to those of you that can't find her at all.

    I don't really want to put her up on the boards for sale either as it would only benefit 1 person.

    I'm leaning more towards doing some kind of contest for her, something that those of you who don't have her can at least have a chance at winning...I have some ideas but nothing concrete yet.

    What do you guys think?

    umm then why did you buy it?

    if youre hesitant in doing it on ebay or the boards why bother? if you need the money just put it on ebay.

    yeah it sucks that other ppl cant find it, its not your fault. you bought it and you can do whatever you want even if it means selling it for twice as much on ebay. but again if you need the money maybe you should just return it.

    Just sell her here. Sure it would only benefit one person, but that one person would probably appreciate it.

    i reckon a contest would be cool. I'd love a chance to own one as it'll never be available here, and ebay prices are just too steep for me. My animated collection has amassive gap til i get her... sigh.

    Well, the obvious choice would be to sell/trade the spare Animated Arcee, but since you really don't feel like doing that, then two options:

    1) Do some sort of contest either here or outside of TFW -- what kind of contest, I don't know... fanfic contest, fan art contest... maybe something within those lines?

    OR

    2) Use her for a custom figure of some kind

    IMHO, you are making a bigger deal out of it than it merits.

    These really aren't that rare - There's a couple dozen on Ebay right now. Yes, they are going for a small premium, but it's not like it's a $100 toy. They go for maybe an extra $10 and that seems to be dropping as time goes by and more shipments arrive at TRUs.

    I'd just post it on the boards here for a fair price and make someone happy. Or better yet, try and find someone local to you who needs one, because that's the person who might be missing out if you took the last one.

    Donate it to a children's charity that accepts new, unused toys.

    I'm still lost on why you bought it when you already had one and had no intentions of selling it...

    dude, that'd be so sad and so hilarious at the same time... but since he said he could use the money, i doubt he'd do that...

    yeah, i'm wondering that too, but i've done the same thing before, where i didn't want a scalper to buy something, so i did then sold it at cost to someone else... i'd say do that... just put up a sale thread on the boards, 20 bucks shipped and i'm sure she'll be gone asap... or do the charity route... do a good deed... its good for the soul...
