Wow... thanks for all the congrats and kind words guys! Much appreciated. Things are going fine with mom and the baby, though we had ZERO sleep last night (better get used to that for a while I guess!) Hee hee.

Well... I finally heard from my source that can get me the cases of figures and I have to say I was a little disappointed. I thought I was going to get them for a little over retail, but the prices she gave was this:
Superman = $50
Green Lantern = $20
Artemis = $45
Robin = $15
Needless to say these are a lot higher than I wanted to pay. I guess GL and Robin aren't too bad, but Supes and Artemis out of my price range for buying bulk quantities at that price.

Sorry to get your hopes up... I was extremely disappointed in this. I am however still working on some of the prototypes. Will keep you guys updated on that.

Rick

I think I speak for all of us when I say that we absolutely DO blame you for your source's high prices. It's all your fault, and we'll never talk to you again. ;-)

Oh, well. It would have been nice to have an Artemis, but...

Hey, I appreciate the effort.

I'll just go back to keeping on eye on eBay.

Someday, somewhen, I'll find one at a price I can stomach.

Thanks anyway.

Yeah... the prices were definitely too high. I'll keep an eye out. Should I ever find them in a local Big Lots, Ross, etc and will pick up whatever I can find at retail (if they ever hit retail) and share them with you guys!

I would love to know where these people are getting though, and in such huge quantities! :?: :?: :?:

not counting the retarded buy it now prices... ebay prices are what people decide to bid them to.

what better way is there to set a dollar value on a figure than to see what people will pay for them?


as for the shipping charges..that's a whole other can of poop.

I understand what sets the market. Ebay seems to be the standard to tell what every collectible is worth now. Overstreet price guide used to be the staple of what everyone would figure comics were worth. Now it is never used, everyone uses ebay as a comic price guide.

But Rick was in contact with someone who had cases of these YJ figures. Even he thought that they were going to sell them to him just a bit above retail. Unfortunately that person saw those ebay dollars.

The least they should do is deduct the eBay and PayPal fees that they'll have to pay anyway. From what I can see, they're trying to charge the exact same prices the items are ending for on eBay. So if they take them to eBay, they'll be doing a lot more work to get less money for the figures than they could by selling them in bulk at a discount.

I am just going to wait this one out. I think there may be more of these in the pipe line since some of the people who have them on Ebay are nobodies. I mean if it was only big time resellers I might jump but there were some random people with them so I think there is hope. Pretty funny a figure with a cheap stand sells for more then the a figure with a collect and connect piece lol
