Auction Watch #115


There shouldn’t need to be much said about the SGS auction. Everything of pertinence can be found in the ‘New Alpha Non-Poster M.U.S.C.L.E. Figure: Salmon Geronimo Shouting’ post.

The few details worth knowing are:

1. A reminder: The item is being sold by UofM, but for the original owner.
2. The listing starts at 10:30PM EST on October 12th.
3. Free shipping in the US.
4. The listing ends at 10:30 EST on October 19th.
5. Here is the link to the auction.

What will the final price be? Anything feels possible with an Alpha Non-Poster figure – especially when it is a cool figure. The last Alpha figure (Prism Man) sold for $2,258.55 but historically the prices have hovered around $1000 to $1200. It wouldn’t be surprising to see this figure go above $1200, but less than the Prism Man.

The second auction, M.U.S.C.L.E. MEN 10 Pack Muscle Men Wrestling NIB, certainly has a tough act to follow.

Flesh 10-packs normally are not especially noteworthy. They are nearly constantly available through eBay and private sales and trades. Usually the most noteworthy part of 10-packs is the utter ridiculousness of the price (e.g., this 50/50 10-pack on Amazon).

This 10-pack is always notable because of its price. Quite refreshingly, it is notable because of its low opening price – $0.99. The auction also has shipping set at only $3 – also quite a bargain. The only potential risk is the seller’s feedback.

The final price of the second auction will be $46.50.

The third auction, M.U.S.C.L.E. Men Lot Of 400 Kinnikuman Flesh Color Figures, is notable because of its size.

There aren’t any Non-Poster figures. There really isn’t anything special about this lot aside from its size and its $0.99 opening bid (which is already in the rear view mirror).

The final price of the third auction will be $278.

The last auction, M.U.S.C.L.E. / MUSCLE FIGURES STILL IN ORIGIONAL PACKAGING WITH SATAN CROSS, is from the seller of the previous auction. It is about the third or fourth sealed Satan Cross he has listed recently.

The seller has claimed he would be listing several Satan Cross 4-packs over the next few weeks. This is good news for the many, many Satan Cross fans.

This final price of this auction will be $115.50.
