Anybody else notice the growing trend of sellers parting out figures on ebay?
I know it's a huge thing with the 1/6th community. As soon as a Hot Toys type figure is released, you suddenly see all the parts split up by sellers online to sell to the customizers.
It does make sense that people are parting out mego figures. A regular batman goes for roughly $50 on a good day complete. You take it apart and piece the items out to more than double the amount per figure.
I can see it being useful if you only need a specific part, but I'd personally never trash a whole figure for the sake of ebay sales. Especially a vintage piece. Newer stuff, Who cares?
"Steel-like jaws clacked away, each bite slashing flesh from my body - I used my knife and my hands, and when they were gone, my bloody stumps - and yet the turtles came."
I was all over it on Action Man 40th.
But it seemed like eventually I bought the whole uniform anyway.
I like the option. A LOT!
Saves money and what am I suppossed to do with the rest of a figure if I only wanted his hat or gun?
Own YOUR Moment !
when you are looking for only 1 or 2 parts it is fantastic.....if you are looking for the whole thing, not so much as it gets way too pricey.
Yes, in fact I was just moaning about it to Laurie about 15 mins ago...
