Discolored and listed as new, unopened, undamaged? Nah, let him live in his world as long as he can.

I used this ebay post to justify the hundreds I spend on individual laser beasts to my wife. She said, "well at least your laser beasts have an orb inside and arms that articulate".   Thank you MUSCLE collectors for making our Battle Beasts look economical :)

I assume you did not mention to her that this figure is, in reality, only worth about a dollar.
Or that this seller is grossly misinformed, to say the least.

And to maintain your justification, don't let her see how this auction will run its course without selling, and continue to do so no matter how many times it is relisted. Unsold auctions are not an indicator of price, you know, if no one is buying it.

This is a common keshi, not the one-of-kind figure the seller thinks they have. A combination of greed and ESL has confused this seller, but has not confused anyone that would even consider buying a single M.U.S.C.L.E. figure, let alone a rare piece.

This auction is absolutely not indicative of what M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors will pay for a common figure. It is, however, a great example of how half-assed research leads to ridiculous auctions, and that can be applied to any item that could possibly be sold on eBay.

Don't believe me? Then try doing a little research on a website called littlerubberguys.com! :lol:

No. Not even close.

This is guy from Malaysia selling a keshi that doesn't understand the difference between a M.U.S.C.L.E. and a Kinkeshi.

Holy Cow Man, I was just kidding around.  For all I know there could be a single MUSCLE figure worth $2000 Canadian and there is nothing wrong with that. There are Battle Beast shields worth $400, good for the seller and the buyer that values them as such.  Stop watching FOX news and being so antagonistic.

That is interesting. My 99 cent bid was declined, but I was alerted when a Best Offer had been accepted, but it was for $250, not $500.

 

This makes me suspect that this seller is more aware of the difference between a M.U.S.C.L.E. and a Kinkeshi than he is letting on, if he is attempting to pad the second chance offer price.

I don't even know what FOX news is. I haven't watched cable television in almost 10 years, and I have no idea what any of that has to do with anything I said. Seems like an attempt at an antagonistic comment, but what do I know? ;)
 
But I do know that no M.U.S.C.L.E. collector would pay more than a dollar or two for this figure. If he did get a an offer for $500 (or even $250) it was either a bidder with no intention of paying, or a shill. The chances that someone that is interested enough in the line to want a SR would be fooled by this auction are pretty slim, but it does happen. My guess is a fake bidder just messing with the seller.
