I can;t believe it, I just won a CARDED Cave Fisher, on a nice card, for $99!!!! I am so psyched, that's an incredible price. Also, I got the last of the 4 Power Lord windups I needed to complete the collection (Arkus). I overpaid for that ($50) but I couldn't take a chance on never seeing it again, as it's the first one I've seen carded. I'll post pics when I get them.

@ Chip, I have no idea how I got so lucky. He had JUST posted it, $49.00 opening bid, or $99 buy it now. I jumped on it obviously. I'm short on cash, but worse comes to worse I can make some extra off that if I decide to sell it (or sell my loose one, which I would probably do over selling the carded one). The guy has 4000 sales or so and 100% feedback too!

Not sure how I missed this thread, given the title, lol. So anyway, congrats again Else. So exciting to nab something in this category, even if you're stretching it with the moolah. Man, how exciting when you go to your daily eBay searches (that normally turn up nothing) and, BAM, there is a listing!

Last year I landed one of my white whales, a pristine and complete Mattel's World's Greatest Monsters "Shogun Warriors" Rodan on eBay for $70. It's in perfect shape, and is quite a steal for
That price. I'll have to post pics soon.

Capt. Collector! That is an incredible price for that Bird! I have bought 3 Rodans each with some type of flaw and whenever I can I pick up spare parts to any of the Shoguns. From those three birds plus the parts I have picked up, I have been able to assemble two complete Rodan figures and I am working on restoring a 3rd.
Congrats again on your White Whale capture! GOOD HUNTING!

@else3573 Congratulations on your White Whale capture!

Next on my list are the 3 European Secret Wars figures form the late 80's Iceman Electro and Cnstrictor

Ooo, I have those! I think I paid around $30-$35 each back in 1989. I don't know what they go for today, bug I remember they were the last three I was missing to complete that set.

Thanks Chip. I guess I never checked up on them because I never intend to sell them. What I do need to check on one of these days is the all-black Estrela Super Powers batman I see cropping up on ebay from time to time. Still missing that one!

I've seen them sell for as low as $150 and as high as $400 these days. Since they were "outed" more have popped up. It's like a carded Cyborg...not really "rare" just "expensive." :D

Peace,

Chip

Thanks Chip, I'll have to keep my eyes open. Maybe I'll score one at Comicon.
