  1. I hate this site more and more everyday. Thanks to this website for lazy collectors, these items will sell for 3-4 times what they’re really worth. awful.

  2. Waah waah. Hoping for deals? Aren’t we all. You’re going to have to work for them and high profile highly desired items will still demand a premium. Most folks bidding on these items have an idea of what they have sold for in the past. If you have your own idea of value, wait for your opportunity to buy them for your price. If you don’t have the patience, then pony up ‘anon’.

  3. hey stupid. High profiled items? No one collected this stuff (pre-famicom nintendo toys) a year or two ago. Now every moron on the internet with a trust fund can just visit this site, buy everything up, and resell it for a profit. Might I point you to the US version of the Love Tester toy auction posted here about 6 months ago, it went for $200+. Its worth maybe $100. The deluxe version that came with two testers and a better looking box sells for less than that overseas.

  4. Anon,
    I’m not going to argue one way or another, but you’re confusing me.

    You say that items sell for more than they’re worth, and then you say people could buy everything and sell at a profit. I don’t see how both of those statements can be true at the same time.
