What are they smoking in Welch, West Virginia? :confused:

Seriously, what's up with that price?

What the.....?

I bought mine for about $20 a few months ago. The price of that thing has sunk like a rock.

They were selling them for $5 new on a site recently, although they oversold and some people didn't get their orders filled. I think a lot of them ended up on ebay. Shame as it's one of the nicer early SW figures IMHO.

Yea, me and my wife got a good laugh out of that tool the other day, he also had the Rebel Trooper for $49,999 but that must have ended, he also has a $23,669 navy seal.:rotfl

What I dont get is why would he just want to throw away money on all those listing fees, because they get pretty high when you have buy it now setups, especially a $36,000 one.:banghead

The other silly thing is like the others said it the cheapest of the bunch, easy to get under $30 with shipping.

I thought this guy had his coma in the wrong place but if he is serious then he is one nut job of a man. Quite right about the BIN fees.It's the price you pay for stupidity I guess.

There's no rule on ebay that says you have to be Sane or sober to list an item.

I agree... its a kickass figure, and essential if you're going to have a Jabba set-up :lecture

Although the exclusive is a must; gotta love the Kenner throwback staff :rock

He probably meant to list it as $36.99 and forgot to add the decimal.

Even in yen it's wrong since it would be close to $400.

LOL...Maybe it would help this seller to show that you can futz the costume to make it look like there is an image of a biblical figure in it.

Well, it seems like a bargain compared to this CD-ROM (http://consumerist.com/2010/01/man-buys-3-billion-cd-rom-on-amazon-just-to-see-what-would-happen.html). :D

By the way, if someone were to actually buy it from the guy, he'd be on the hook for huge eBay fees until he got it cleared up, whether they actually pay or not.

I actually find it's a shame that he didn't actually have it in the movie, I think it looks kinda of cool and would have made him have a little more presence.

Way too low.... I'd say $87,246.85 would be the going market rate for one. :lecture

For that initial price, I'd expect Michael Carter(the guy who played Bib), to show up at my house in full costume and do my bidding for a year(this would include grabbing him by his collar and screaming "You weak minded fool!" into his face multiple times a day).

hmm... Maybe he will, maybe he just comes in a lifesize sideshow box... a sideshow SUPER EXCLUSIVE! (only 1 is ever made)...

If I bought him I wouldn't want to leave him MIB for too long... :lol

He fixed the price to $36.99, not a bad price price for the exclusive, but not for $25 in shipping.
