What Would You Do?

This is my second ‘What would you do?’ post. This second one is pretty different from the first.

My inbox blew up when collectors saw this:

If the picture doesn’t look familiar to you, then let me give you a reminder.

For most buyers, not having an actual picture is a red flag. The 50% feedback would also be a red flag. But what is you only needed five more figures?

If you were in my shoes, then would you take a chance?

    I had seen the figure as part of a larger lot by the seller, which was also highly priced. I assume the seller figured out that the one figure was valuable, canceled the auction, and relisted just the one figure. I see now the auction is already over. I think the fact that it was a picture of YOUR own list of needed figures is really bizarre, though there was a picture of the figure in the larger lot. The low number of feedback auctions, and low feedback score makes me suspicious. I’d never pay that much for a figure until I knew it could stand up. I wouldn’t have taken a chance on this auction. I hope if there is a buyer it works out.

    Through ebay I would buy it. I don’t worry too much when I buy via ebay with how die hard they side with buyers almost every time. Yes I know the price is high(which I know very little on pricing) but I do know when getting close to finishing any toy line, that some high dollar figs’ bridges will have to get crossed

    It’s back:


    I guess there was no buyer before, the person just stopped the auction, so the seller could take a picture and then really ask an insane price. I would certainly pass if I was you. This person is not only gouging, I think the seller is specifically taunting you.
