There aren't any Creature Grave Walkers on eBay now.  I think the only ones being listed before were being sold by scalpers.

Here are the ones that I noted during 2012:

April 22     -   9 Bids - $137.50
May 13     - 26 Bids -   153.51
June   5     - 11 Bids -  271.00
June 24     - 26 Bids -  355.00
July    9     -  16 bids -  202.50
Aug  11     -  B-I-N   -   259.00 + 34.00 Shiping
Sept 25     -   7 Bids -   270.00 + 39.99 Shipping - Seller:  amoktimetoys
Sept 28     -  B-I-N   -   155.00  + 38.99 Shipping

Oct     7     -   9 Bids -   260.00 + 26.23 Shipping      
Oct     8     - 13 Bids  -  255.00 + 20.00 Shipping            
Oct     9     - 10 Bids  -  205.00 + 20.53 Shipping
Oct   13     -   2 Bids  -  240.00 + 18.00 Shipping
Oct   14     - 10 Bids  -  237.50 + 50.00 Shipping
Oct   14     - B-I-N     -   255.00 + 22.55 Shipping
Oct   16     - 19 Bids  -  263.00 + 29.01 Shipping
Oct   20     -   7 Bids  -  213.67 + 32.83 Shipping
Oct   21     -  B-I-N     -  260.00 + 94.40 Shipping
Oct   24     - 18 Bids  -  326.00 + 50.00 Shipping
Oct   26     - B-I-N       - 199.00 + 30.00 Shipping
Oct   26     - B-I-N       - 199.00 + 30.00 Shipping
Oct   27     - B-I-N       - 249.00 + 30.00 Shipping
Oct   28     - B-I-N       - 249.00 + 30.00 Shipping

I didn't bother to figure out the average price.

The only one listed by a big retailer was one that had been altered to include a hanging bracket.

I'm glad I got mine from a regular store very early on.  At the time I was afraid I had spent too much.  Now, I don't feel so bad.

There were 3 or 4 after that which sold for over $300.00 + shipping.

Interesting to see that today on eBay the Creature is the 2nd cheapest Grave Walker:




And they all come with Free Shipping!

That's Amazon, not eBay, for those still trying to find them. I went ahead and double checked that they are in stock and not simply listed at that price and "unavailable". And sonuvagun they are in stock! I feel like I need a spare at that price...
Stay sick. Turn blue. Drop dead.

Yes, yes - AMAZON.

My mistake (Funny, I labeled the image right on my Flickr post.)

I wonder how some of the people who paid over $400.00, including shipping, are feeling?  I did not think we would ever see a Creature this late for $61.00 total price.

Now if they would only add a Mummy Walker.  The usual standard quartet is Dracula, Frankenstein, Mummy and Wolf Man.  They were wise to do a Creature, but I still miss the Mummy.

Well, one thing's for sure.  It looks nothing like Karloff.
