ok so I have seeing these go off on ebay..
GI Joe Cobra custom Black Soldier MINT C10 - eBay (item 160345131306 end time Jul-01-09 03:11:35 PDT)
does this mean the molds have been sold to a private owner and he is producing reproductions in china?

I would imagine Hasbro still has the molds but someone could have made their own molds.
I find it funny that he calls it a "one of a kind" item, yet then claims he bought a few off of ebay from a guy in Canada, that kinda defeats the whole "one of a kind" claim doesn't it?

I can't figure out why they are going for such a high price!

I keep thinking these are going to show up in greater numbers. Whoever made them should know by now he could make a good chunk of cash, or maybe someone else could, maybe in China?

Hrm. I'm half tempted to get one, remove the Cobra symbol, add an SAS Force one, paint the facemask silver & use him as a substitute for the Hunter figure I lost when I was a kid.

These are not made from the original molds. They are custom cast. They were first sold at the Canadian Joe Con, as far as I know.
These are not official Joe toys by any means....they are bootlegs, and they are probably illegal.
As far as to why they are selling for so much - I'm not just being glib when I say it's because that's what people seem to be willing to spend on them.
