I am just wondering why some of the GI Joe 25th figures with the modified packaging seems to be disappearing more from store shelves and selling for more online than most of the generic carded figures.
For instance, I find Wave 5 or Black Snake Eyes on a regular generic card with art and everything go for like $8 and the modified cards go for $15-$25.
I find these quite often than I can count, but have no clue as to why they keep selling out as quickly as some of them do.
I am Canadian and I just think they look ugly. I really am sorry if I am coming on strong or being unfair or harsh on these, but the only good thing I find on these are just the figures themselves. To me they are perfect for opening, no doubt, but I guess the one question I have is......
Are these rare or something? What's the deal? Why do they go for so much?

Only a limited amount were produced, seems like everyone opened theirs assuming we would be swimming in them, now people are scrambling to find them carded.
If they were rare to begin with how rare are they now, now that most of them have been opened ?

To be quite honest I don't know how rare they are. I know I can't find them often now, but found mother lots at the Canadian Joe con and found they were selling for more the generic ones.
I found 2 Snake Eyes, 2 Crimson Guards, Gold Destro about a week ago at TRU.
