It’s defiantly happening with the McFarlane Metal Gear Solid Figures.
This set of both the original and second line is selling for just under $500.00 with twelve hours to go. Similar auctions have been ending for prices that are maybe a few hundred dollars higher.
If you’ve got some of these sitting around, it’s a great time to unload them. I’m pretty confidant you could pick them up for a lot cheaper in a year or so when the hype dies down and there’s no new game announced on the horizons.
