Everybody check this out. Who is paying this for a Stargirl 3-pack. Superfly you got a good deal from me.

Yep it's crazy. It''s probably the hardest to find 3 pack with essentially 3 new characters in it(2 and a hand really) Parasite and Stargirl are selling for $25 on their own. This pack hasn't shipped in a while and a lot of folks are jumping on the JLU bandwagon. I don't doubt it will show up again but who knows when.

This is the kind of thing that makes people quit JLU. If I hadn't started collecting when I did I doubt I'd get into it now actually.

Well I actually had two. I took the second one and sold it on eBay. Superfly actually won it from for less than $20 (w s/h included). I'm not big on selling but I wanted see how crazy people would get.

I probably should sell the other one and wait for the singles to come out. If get that much for it would help to pay for my comicbooks subscription.

I do like having my JLU stuff though andI look forward to the upcoming year.

This kinda crazyness isnt limited to ebay.
Amazon used to get shipments of JLU figures. Now it seems they dont and leave them up to indy sellers.
Right now, most JLU packs are available, from these indy sellers, for around $57 or more.
And sadly, people will buy them at that price.

$51!?! :shock: I'm so happy that I found that pack about 2 months ago at Target. I just couldn't see myself paying that much for it.

Thankfully the only figure I had to get off eBay was the orange carded Vigilante, good thing too even after re-releasing him I still haven't seen any in stores.

:shock: TOTALLY! I can't believe it's going for that much, is this just one instance or is this the average now??

Like I said in most of my posts, ebay is way to expensive and I have had absolutely no luck in finding anything :( Just the Joker 3 pack. So if anyone can help me I have a list of what I need in the Swap Meet titled "Some JLU figures I need"

Yep, that's a pack that never showed around here, and I'll probably be waiting quite awhile before I pick it up. Of course, 5 years from now you'll be able to get it for $15 again, and I'm a patient man.

Wow, for that much, I may put my 3 pack up for auction. Or at least crack it open and auction Parasite off, since I'm only interested in Stargirl. I didn't know he was 'rare'.

When I got this three pack from TRU, I've never seen it again anywhere else. Even at Target where I got almost 80% of my JLUs.

I've never seen Stargirl or Volcana at retail, and as such don't have them... :cry: But I won't resort to paying outrageous prices for them either! :x

It's been averaging $45ish for the last little while. It selling for this much is not a good thing for the line as JLU has a "gotta catch em all" vibe to it and there are still plenty of people without this pack.

I think when they were creating these assts. JLU was not yet the sleeper hit it is now and they didn't make enough. I personally top out at about $15 a figureso if I didn't already have this pack I'd be scouring eBay for a reasonable BIN.

If Mattel is to be more collector focused how about using that 6 pack package and sticking these inside:

Volcana
Stargirl
Parasite
Barda
Deadshot
Star Sapphire
Sand
Obsidian

:lol: yea I know, fat chance of that.
