    but you made the choice to go to the effort to track down this toy. you can't look for pity because you made the choice to waste time on a toy instead of something else.

    I can certainly see why someone would TRY to charge $150. I went through hell to get him. At Emerald City, I saw a vendor trying to get that much for him, and he sat on a shelf collecting dust the whole show.

    When he first came out, I saw it for $80 at local toy shows, which seems like a steal now.

    In mid November you wanted to buy one off anybody for $65 plus shipping, but you weren't going to be able to pay them until December. Even at that time your request was unrealistic. Here is your quote.

    So, the real question is how much do you expect to pay for it now? SureShotSniper responded with MISB for $120 plus shipping. And your snarky response after that was.

    So again, how much do you expect to pay? Quit wasting time and name a price.

    While I don't agree with the current going price I don't blame the sellers. Distribution was absolutely brutal for Starscream. I feel like it could have helped with a "2 per person" limit but only minimally. Oh and like double the production.
