My G1 Bumblebee, my G2 Bumblebee, my reissue Anime face Bumblebee, my red Argentinian Bumblebee and my KO's of Bugbite and Glyph tell me I have some clue what the toy is like. It's between Scout and Legends size but closer to Legends. Chances are I had my G1 Bumblebee before many of you were born.

Fair enough it's not my money but given the current Recession, it seems like an obscene amount of money for such a small toy. In fact for any toy.

I dont doubt you know what a Bumblebee is like.
Your statement was based the "obscenity" of spending that much on a toy that SIZE. Thats why I stated you have no clue. Comparing value relative to size doesnt work in this context.
Id rather have that one little $2600 Bee than 100 each of the other Bees you mentioned.

"Fair enough it's not my money but given the current Recession, it seems like an obscene amount of money for such a small toy. In fact for any toy."

Obscene to who? You? Ok. I think its obscene to spend 10 bucks on a KO transformer. I dont start or comment on threads about it. Because its not my money, not my opinion.

Unless the buyer of the Bee has a repsonsibility to pay your mortgage, or put food on your table, dont worry so much.

you know, I could get a really nice print of a piece by Rembrandt for under $1000- doesn't mean it's the same thing as the original that costs $1,000,000, and if I wanted it and could reasonably afford the original, I would be much happier having the real deal

Big Dawg is right. So Bee is isnt a Rembrandt, but the people like the high end collector who bought it surely look at it as a form of art.
Once you get past food, rent, etc isnt it all superfluous?

Hoenstly, I think people on both sides of the arguments of this toy need to chill out. The buyer got what he wanted and the seller made a good earning. It seems to me that everyone directly involved are pretty happy
