Lol how much he thinks each figure is worth, oh thats so cute.


Yeah this one really confuses me. Unless you're loaded and have zero concept of what things are actually worth then you're not going to buy this.


There was a time when Noobs used to buy and pay whatever for 1/2 good, rest crap auctions all the time, he might get one of them though they've been absent of late.

He's trying to justify his extremely high prices, how cute! When I'm selling something on trademe for the purpose of making money I look for the buyer and think what would they pay. Transformers Prime was less than a decade ago and none of these are must buys. I would be pricing this at around $150 max. And god knows why his shipping is so extreme as well.

I like the line "They average around the $126.00 each overseas and in NZ... "

Where on the entire internet is anyone paying $126 for a TF:Prime deluxe?

Quoting fishpond is always a mistake, also the higher amazon prices are made by toywiz a website that is way over priced.

Oh well its not like wave 1 here didn't shelf warm for a year and a half

It will be a cold day in hell before I ever buy from the Fishing Hub. This person (I'm not sure of this definition) buys toys and marks them up to obscene prices and endlessly relists them on trademe. $129 Combiner wars Sky Lynx, $89 Combiner wars Motor Master the list goes on. Then after months of them not selling they buy the top search on transformers on trademe and $1 reserve it and you will never EEEEEVVVVVVVEEEEERRRRR win that auction because of the magic buyers who will auto bid up to their already inflated prices.

I'm not sure if a member of this forum is the fishing hub or not, but after a year of being in the transformers nz community (I was a lurker for a while) this is the type of BS that pushes potential collectors away. I saw this toy for <$40 on boxing day sales all over why on earth do they need to more then double that price?

As a guess it may be a new version of "arisesirtoys" which was an online store operating out of levin briefLy in the mid 2000s. They weren't horrendously priced then but were certainly off the pace price wise compared to others.

Whoa:

http://www.trademe.co.nz/toys-models/figurines-miniatures/action-figures/transformers/auction-1371030345.htm

That's a serious amount of quality bot for a decent price - bet I'm not the only one watching this.
Keen for a combined bid if anyone else is, although I admit trying to work out $1250 into "fair" components would give anyone a headache!

Personally keen on Metro, MP Prime, Soundwave and Starscream
