lol I saw that too! You can get an actual unopened one for about the same price on eBay, so why pay for one that has the wrong figures and broken ones at that?

Also, in other news, this is my 1000th post! WOO HOO! :D

It reminds me of Ghostbusters when Ray says what a great deal the car was and it was in good shape and "just needs" a ton of repairs he rattles off lol

But, but but......it's monsters! Everybody knows Monsters stuff is worth beeeeeeeeeeeeeee----llllllions (billions) of dollars.  NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!!

It reminds me of the Pawn Stars episode the other day where some poor ole dude brings in a run of the Archie TMNT comics....and wanted $1,000.00 for them.  ::)

$1000.00 for that?  I used to love that series, and actually was looking ebay when I discovered that it wasn't available digitally, and I found the ENTIRE run for like $30.00
Between that and people charging a ton of money for things that originally cost very little, I REALLY have to wonder from which orfice some of these people are pulling their prices.
One time on ebay, someone was sellig some promotional material from a Universal Monsters Lottery ticket thing, and it was just little cardboard promotional things that she got for free because she worked at the gas station..$30 is what she originally wanted for them!  They would have been cool to have, but not for $30.00
