    While mostly black, there is a lot of variance in those blacks and dark grays they used.

    The limited Decepticon deco I can just about believe.

    The regular release though, that's just people pushing their luck. Took me eight months to sell mine on for retail.

    These things don’t really sell well on the aftermarket. Too niche imo (I’ve had to offload all of mine for sub-retail).

    Yeah, can see the niche thing being an Achilles heel for resale. Tarn and Drift did well though on the secondary market if I remember right? Time out of print and popularity of character would also contribute to aftermarket demand.

    Just had another look at those ebay listings. Got scam written all over them.

    These pieces look incredible. I own Drift, Starsaber, and Tarn. I wanted the repaint of Starsaber. But, I am not an IDW person and do not know who these characters are, and at basically $400+ per release, I have decided to stop. I may sell or trade my three pieces away and leave this line.
