Editorial: Auction Watch #188

I couldn’t find anything that moved me this week. I’m sure people would suggest I highlight the several $0.99 Class A auctions. Turning Auction Watch into Class A Watch sounds boring to me.

I have to stop the trend. Every Auction Watch this year has featured, at least one, Class A auction. That doesn’t even take into account the dozens and dozens of ridiculous Class A auctions I ignore.

Class A figures are not as rare and valuable as sellers anyone would want you to believe.

We see more and more Class A figures appearing. Logic would suggest more supply would lower demand. And with lower demand should come lower prices.

I’m glad many people are starting their auctions at $0.99. That is great. They should be applauded. So maybe the buyers are the problem? I don’t know. It makes no sense to me.

Can anyone explain it?

I’m going for a Master Set!

Oh, the thing not a known single person has accomplished – contrary to a claim or two. That explains everything. The plan is to spend a few hundred dollars on every figure you need. And you only need 66 more. Wow.

That does not actually explain anything. So I’m all ears. Can anyone explain to me why some Class A prices continue to be so high?

And if you can answer that question, then maybe you can also tell me why sellers sit on high prices for Class A figures that aren’t selling?

    To me, going for a master set is like death by paper cuts.
