Are people just stupid? Who pays $45 when you can go out on Ebay and get 1 for $35? These are the kinds of morons resellers are dealing with and it is why they can charge these inflated prices and these impatient children in adult bodies just hand over the $$ gladly.
part of it is the fear factor usually things come down in value-- othertimes -- they seem to steady increase-- you have to take your chances on what will and what wont-- Part of it also was everyone is still waiting to see if Hasbro posts some late stock-- and then we will get another spike in prices-- I dont think the Starscream Skystriker will drop anytime soon- but hopefully Zarana will hit normal levels.. But you never know- every once in a while you could get a Gleek-- which is staying steady around the 75.00 mark..
