    glad I have all my movie leaders already lol (except Brawl, but I'm patient). I actually got a pretty sweet deal for mine recently when I saw the prices start to rise

    -Got leader jetfire and prime (blades) for $55 shipped
    -Got Rotf leader megatron for a bunch of animated (3 deluxe and 2 voyagers)

    But yeah, I think people are finally realizing that those leaders that were clearanced out are going up in demand, especially since DOTM probably brought a bunch of new/returning fans to franchise.

    Welcome to the crazy, crazy world of Amazon Marketplace.

    Amazon Marketplace can be a joke. These toys can be had for much cheaper prices if one knows where to look. The only fools who buy them at such inflated prices are those who lack any self restraint and have more money to blow than sense.

    However, sometimes Amazon Marketplace CAN have much better deals than items directly sold from Amazon.

    But right now Transformers are HOT, so yes there will be individuals trying to make a mint off of hype and people craving transforming plastic toy robots.

    I remember back in 2007 right after the movie hit, dumb asses were paying $100+ for absolutely trashed Gen.1 Shockwaves. The uneducated fools.

    These online prices really make me regret selling my Leader Brawl a couple years back. Not because I'd wanna sell him now for the going rate, but because that rate now prevents me from ever getting him again. *sigh*

    Wow, I can't believe those toys are going for those prices loose. I can find loose G1 figures for less money than that.
