And speaking of eBay, I have no idea what is being smoked out of the pipes by the people bidding on this Botcon 2005 FlameUp figure.
With 2 hours to go it is at $379.85!
I'm sorry but I didn't even pay that for Botcon Antagony, and she's a helluva lot cooler, larger, and rarer, than one of 3 Energon Arcee repaints from that year.
Hell... FlameUp isn't even the rarer Attendee Flame War!
Bad craziness there.
So. Remember that silly $1,000,000 G1 toy ebay auction?
I can't tell based on the history if it was legitimately purchased or not. That person listed has to have been a joke. I mean, the last item they purchased was tanning lotion.
It just can't have been real bid but they aren't listed on the declined page.
Ever since this goddamn movie started I've been inundated with viral emails asking me to go to websites of unlicensed TF products or to just blog about shit to drive traffic to these websites.
What's amazingly funny is how most of these are essentially crafted vermin emails that offer me absolutely nothing but ask me to post about their crap and giving links that will be picked up by Google and Yahoo and such.
I've probably had about 15 emails so far this week.
While one marketing firm representing Radio Shack was probably the top of the list, the rest have all been unlicensed poorly drawn crappy tshirts sites trying to make a buck off of advertising or their rather low-quality products.
What's amazing is not a single email offered me any form of compensation.
Not a single dime or freebie.
At least when the marketing firm hawking the anniversary version of the original movie came a calling they gave me a free copy of the DVD to link to their ad.
This is 'Merica folks! Nothing is free. Everything has a price.
As I post , this auction has 45 minutes to go.
All of the Botcon exclusive toys at $1000????
I'm sorry. It is that kind of bad craziness that can't be justified.
And believe me, I've dropped a shitload of cash on toys before.
I do have a loading dock now though.
Sorry niknatti. This most certainly would not be a "great addition to any transformers collection".
In fact, I think it may be one of the most disturbingly ugly things I've ever seen.
Animorphs... the true bottom rung of Tranformers.
So. You think this guy got a shitload of $20 clearance Cybertron Primii and now is trying to get over full price for them?
Don't know how long the link will work since it is timed.
Stupid Nala has to just go and order something without looking closer.
These are overpriced frigg'n undrilled translucent dice!!!!
Nala <---- Lame.
