What did he mean in the title when he said Not Another like it? The hollow to variant is not all that rare.

I've no idea if $199 is a high price for a plush Wicket but $297 for shipping to the UK seems excessive and shows how some people try to exploit the hobby.

$297 isn't bad for shipping...

... lol!

I seriously think a low price is used to draw buyers in and then they make up the value in shipping to get a grand total of what they think the item is worth. So dumb.

Is it really?  I didn't even pay $300 for mine with the action force rifle and the comic.  Of course it was purchased a long time ago. It was sometime after 2005 as I was living in the house I have now which I bought in 2005. I want to say it was 2005-2006 time when I bought it.

This used to be very prevalent back when the eBay fee was only based on the item price, but now the fee for the seller is based on final price plus shipping. I don't see it as often. Though sometimes they try to sucker you in with a low price and high shipping to see if you might blind bid.

I definitely saw them go in the $150-175 range not even a month and a half ago though. Ridiculous.

This one is graded but $300 is a bargain compared to it.

Shocked Time to sell up?

For those that said yes, this is a life long hobby at this point.  If your thinking of selling up, get a bat and please do what the emoticon is doing. :I am stupid: :I am stupid: :I am stupid:

Prices are out of control these days. I haven't bought anything in months. It gets to a point where it isn't worth spending the money. I think I will just be content with what I have.

The first Ree Yees is insanely priced. It is Ledy but even so that's just madness.

Just to note the other two do not show paint degradation on the hands as they are both Taiwan figures where the arms are moulded in flesh coloured plastic so no paint to degrade. Very Happy

I've also noticed you're watching the second one and all of your open tabs are TIG. lol!

Goes without saying, but do some homework before any purchase. The Ledy ree yees is fairly common and was one of the mim figures (those are more common than any other Ledys) and I wouldn't pay that much for any of them.
