Correct me if I'm wrong... but there's no figure in there, right? That Invisible Boy was sort of a small laughable joke and to not offset the packaging layout so that the giant figure fit snug inside the case they all came in?

I know. But a forty dollar joke is ridiculous.

That kind of sucks...his wording is pretty cautious, but he is a dillweed.

So, I sent this question just to see if the jerk would actually respond...

So, what you're actually selling is the empty tray that was put in the set to keep the contents symetrical and supposedly holds the non-existant Invisible Kid figure for $40, is that correct?...

I see his logic if anything... well at least this is what my reasoning would be.

Everyone can buy these figures on ebay, even in their packaging like he has. But no one has the invisible kid segment for sale, making him rare and even pricey to the people who would want to try and complete the packaging as best they can.

Much like selling empty boxes for for completest. Although I think $40.00 is a bit... much...

Why does he say "Loose" though? Because it isn't with the rest of the packaging? When I think of a loose figure, I think of no packaging at all... just a figure.

I agree... but don't these individual packages break away from a main package which wraps them up into some kind of tower? I think it's been called a 'club house'? I'm not sure, I don't own the Legion set, only seen pictures of it.

No, each compartment is part of the main package. Each compartment opens from the top or bottom (depending on top or bottom row, of course) and the tray with the figure slides out.

Nope, no response... The auction was ended by the seller, though, guess he was afraid he was going to get busted.

From the top of the page at the moment...

Quote:
This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available.




There is another one on eBay right now from a different seller but at least this guy tells it like it really is after he sets up the joke.

Actually, I would say it's pretty likely they are on this board or some other toy board. You don't even know Matty Collector exists without being on a site somewhere that talks about it.

I know Matty was where you could only get these but there was a lot of people on eBay selling these as well. Who probably ordered from Matty. It's common to collect these figures and not know what Matty is if you only check eBay and retail stores. I didn't know what Matty was until I joined another toy forum in August.
