    That is how Amazon works..... You can list whatever you want for an insane amount of money. The question is, "Will it sell?"

    Actually, all the other Unicrons have sold, so the only listed price ATT is the $10000. That is AWESOME.

    I'd rather buy a nice 1988 Honda CRX SI for that kind of money. God do I miss my old car. LOL!

    This, so much this.

    I see these crazy prices all the time on Amazon and it's funny to see the reaction they get.

    IMHO, the seller is not crazy, they might think who cares if it doesn't sell, so why not "go for it". In fact I think it's genius if they can get someone to pay it. Really at that point they ARE geniuses to get that for Unicron and it is the buyer that has more money than brains.

    I'm assuming so. I'm not sure how easy it is to retract an offer on Amazon.

    It's super easy - I have a seller account there to get rid of my used videogames. All you have to do is delete it from you stock listing, takes a bit of time but if it sells, you can just cancel the order.

    As for the "reasonable" shipping rate, unless you have a premium seller account, Amazon sets all shipping rates for you. That's why you see so many listed at the same shipping rate.

    Never though that phrase might have a literal meaning when it came to Transformers.

    Still, this is ridiculous.
