Feel like buying FOA for twice what they're worth?

I am thinking the only reason the FOA community doesn't have one of Veers' "A-Hole of the week" awards, is because we only ever see AHotW FOA auctions... Sheesh.

I was considering selling my entire collection, because of this crap. It's been going on for quite a while, and doesn't seem to be going away.

The price on that lot is probably, at least, like three times what it is actually worth, IMO.

The Crystalite is the only thing remotely rare. The common figs, mutants, and weapons pop-up all the time.

Wonder what a Sciroid Battleship would go for, if one ever surfaced?

It probably wouldn't sell, actually.
Since it would have a BIN of $1,000,000!

Thats waaay too much. I wouldn't even bat an eyelid at that lot either.
Stopped collecting these figures when the prices shot up and havent looked back.

I kind of hope to outlast the batshit trend. It was ONE nutty auction, and now everybody acts like these things are made out of pure platinum.

You can typically get the Italian ones off of ebay Italy for a song.

You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it." - The late Dr. Adrian Rogers , 1931 to 2005

When I say liberty I do not simply mean what is referred to as "free enterprise." I mean liberty of the individual to think his own thoughts and live his own life as he desires to think and to live; the liberty of the family to decide how they wish to live, what they want to eat for breakfast and for dinner, and how they wish to spend their time; liberty of a man to develop his ideas and get other people to teach those ideas, if he can convince them that they have some value to the world; liberty of every local community to decide how its children shall be educated, how its local services shall be run, and who its local leaders shall be; liberty of a man to choose his own occupation; and liberty of a man to run his own business as he thinks it ought to be run, as long as he does not interfere with the right of other people to do the same thing. - Robert A. Taft
