I saw the gold ones on e-bay Thursday night of the Comic-con for about 25-30 bucks.
My friend and I thought "what a joke-- we'll just pick them up tomorrow at the show!"
Well, little did we know the fiasco it would be trying to get one...
Then we waited for Hasbrotoystore.com to put them up (as the rep at the con said they would)-- so we still didn't buy one on e-bay.
Of course, by the time they we found them on Hasbrotoyshop.com, they only had the Silver version left-- of which I picked up 2.
Still been debating on getting taking the plunge and getting the Gold one-- but it's gone from 125 to 200+ on e-bay this last week or so!
I'll tell you one thing-- I'm not wating for a "better" deal on these exclusives anymore!

Here's my running theory. . .
There's a lot of collectors out that are pretty static about which lines they collect. I've met quite a few.
- They're either in and out of a particular brand; never bothering to follow the boards or the trends.
- They're 100% N00Bs just starting out; so naive they'll fall for the hype.
- Or, they stick with a line, but they often get derailed and miss the news about how rare a particular item truly is.
These are the unseen rank and file that online retailers love the most, and they're the ones that pay the seller's rent. To them, these are "the suckers born every minute."
I was one once. You wouldn't believe a few of the items I bought back when I was coming into this. :rolleyes:
