You've seen it. I've seen it. We've all seen it. Anyone who asks for more than retail on a current item (less than a year old) that may or may not be available is a scalper. But when they ask for near or market value for an original G1 figure (or any older item for that matter) it's acceptable. Another scenario is purchase price vs. market value. Just because I happen to luck into a no longer available piece (let's say Animated Sunstorm for fun) at 75% off does that mean I'm obligated to offer it up here for the price I paid? Does that make me any less of a collector/fan/member? Wouldn't I be silly to not want the most in trade/sale for a particular item? So tell me, how do YOU determine a value for an item you are trying to trade/sell?
