If Mattel can't see that there is a big demand for Batman Animated villians, then they are blind. This has been a highly sought after character by fans for years. Why the people at Mattel never did their homework on which characters to produce is just another example of how they missed the mark. Firefly should have been done years ago. JMO.

Static sells for $1575. I think I've not spent that amount for my whole JLU collection, not even for all my figures.

This had nothing to do with the character of Firefly. It had to do with the fact that he very well may not get released at all.

While Mattel didn't "do their homework on which characters to produce," they released every card carrying member of the League, plus about 150 others. I'd hardly call that "missing the mark."

As for the demand for Batman villains being "big," if you ask people why the Batman Rogues four-pack didn't perform on Matty, they'd say the opposite.

For what it's worth, there is absolutely no way any action figure from any line is worth $1000+.

This. I understand value is subjective, but this is crazy.

I guess some have more disposable income than I do.

There is absolutely no way any action figure made in the last 20 years should carry a value of over $100. in fact, considering the state of the american economy and the myriad of terrible things going on in the world today, there is no way any toy of any kind should be worth more than about $10. mcfarlane and matty have ruined the action figure price market and ebay has decimated all reasonable elements of secondary trade value. it's obscene. i wish i knew who bought those children's toys (animated style, so even INTENTIONALLY poorly sculpted) so i could send them some literature on abused animals and starving children. enjoy your $1000 firefly action figure. in the mean time real fireflies and honey bees are dying at an alarming rate. einstein predicted after honeybees die off, the world has about 2 years left to survive. enjoy the succulent flavor of your automobile-priced hunk of plastic when the worldwide famine wipes out everything but soylent beige.

IT'S PLASTIC PEEEEEEEEEOPLE!!!!!!!!

If the person who bought the figure(s) would make a mold of the figure and mass produce them, I'd buy one from him for $25.00. I'll bet that he might come out with a profit. JMO.

His (or her) money, his choice. I think it's nuts, but I'm not going to write a diatribe about how someone is spending their own money on the wrong stuff.
