Only accessible to people who know about it. There are some fans of the JLU toy line who don't read forums or check websites believe it or not. They simply go to the retail stores or their local comic shop.

There's another possibilty: They don't want to have to wait another six months to get their favorite figures. A lot of times when something first comes out it goes for crazy prices because people who have more money than sense don't want to wait a month for it to show up in their area. I know it's stupid, but there's a pretty big likelihood that the people who bought the stolen prototypes already knew they were coming to Matty in 6 months to a year.

I have several JLU test shots, including Firefly. And I plan on keeping them as part of JLU history and my fondness for the line.

If you go back to my original comment, you will see that I'm talking about people who regularly check eBay for new figures. If you regularly check eBay and are a die hard collector, why wouldn't you check other websites? I know I would personally be very confused that Firefly, a figure that sold for $1000 is now available for much less BIN prices.

I also stated that "not wanting to wait" is a perfectly understandable reason.

I would keep them. Even if they did get a release they are still rare test shots.

I would love to know if Mattel ever gave you JLU test shots of figures that were never produced or even leaked online. But I'm sure if you did have them, and posted pics online, there would be another JLU uproar Hal Jordan style. Maybe ignorance is bliss lol.

I doubt he has anything we don't know about from Mattel.

I'm selling my test shot to help out a friend complete their SS2.
I made arrangements to replace my Volcana with a regular one, as not to be without one, and
I will be getting some SS2 for someone else.

This way I can make two people happy, and I'll still have an original Volcana.

Goodbye girlfriend,

SS2? What does that stand for?

Curious as to what you sold it for (if you don't mind me asking...no worries if so).

Peace,

Chip

I believe thats Secret Society II she abreviated there ;) I know I would have traded my SS2 figures for that Volcana for sure! How does one even come up with that offer?

I would sell them yesterday! It would be great to possibly get the money to buy the new officially-made packs by selling a few figures that you'll have duplicates of soon enough.

So if you bought a Hereafter Superman for hundreds of dollars you would sell it for 25? Because I bought one for 25 dollars a couple of days ago on eBay.

There's zero profit to be made from these at this point.
