G2 Stunticons sell for $26,815 on Ebay – 71 bids – 974 watchers

g2-stunticons-on-ebay-2014

Now that’s some expensive plastic

Starting on June 27, 2014, a rather auspicious auction appeared under the ebay user z75sales: a bagged set of the Generation 2 Stunticons including never-before-seen factory-applied stickers and missile launchers for G2 Motormaster. Just yesterday, July 7th, the 10 day auction ended and the final bid was $26,815.00!  This is an unprecedented amount for a Transformers auction.  Here’s how it all went down.

The seller

The seller is a long-time ebayer who continues to state the same story: He is a broker who is selling a former Kenner / Hasbro employee’s estate sale.  The seller was kind enough to join Transfans in discussion about the items on TFW under the username starwarsprotos, which might give a hint at his history in toy collecting.  The seller was sharing photographs that were not included in the auction and during this discussion it was discovered that the G2 Menasor head didn’t appear to be in the baggy housing Motormaster.  Regardless of this missing piece, the value did not seem to be brought down.

No purple head? No problem! Photo provided by the seller.

The Transformers

The G2 Stunticons are some of the most sought-after and hard to find unicorns that are out there.  They have a sordid past and every once in a while they rear their heads and make sure we all know that we’ll never have them.  This particular auction was the first time a stickered near-production-ready version of G2 Motormaster had ever been seen.  Other versions that have been seen online were said to be painted samples and not finished toys.  Even the legendary Karl Hartman chimed in to tell a little bit of the history of these beauties.

 

The Buyer

It turns out that the winner was indeed an active fan in the community and known as HighPrime on the TFW2005 boards.  Congrats HighPrime!  According to him, he was on vacation and agreed with his wife to sell a large portion of his collection if he could spend the dough to get these guys.

 

Sorry I kind of petered out on the details of this article and just wanted to get it up.  Congrats to HighPrime and the seller!  Here’s hoping more goodies come out of the mystery bag.

179 Transformers Ebay auctions just listed by Diablien – tons of good figures

otherauctions2013

Click the image to get to the awesome auctions

I just spent a whole week preparing 179 auctions and over 600 photographs of over 200 items.  There are a few more to come but they have all be listed as of 1:00 AM CST Monday April 22.

Apparently, as always, Ebay has changed their policies a bit.  They no longer want any text in their images so that sucks, but that doesn’t go into effect until July of 2013 so I’m in the clear.

Overall, I plan for this batch to be my highest yield ever in my history of sell-offs.  Let’s hope I’m right… to the tune of 5 digits!

Hasbro enforcing 3rd party seperatism on ebay? – my WST shockwave listing removal

Transformers Ebay listing removal by hasbro because of 3rd Party

Well I'll be

Today I received a surprising email – one of my current ebay listing was removed. Not because it was a non-orange-tipped Megatron, not because it was a cruddy listing, but instead because I used the word “Transformers” in the listing title. This was for a Justitoys 3rd party WST Shockwave that was sealed.

Justitoys Worlds Smallest Shockwave

Here is the culprit right here!

The funniest part is that WST Blaster is still listed!

So here is just further evidence that Hasbro is finally starting to take in the reins on their intellectual property, and it is about time! I guess I’ll just have to list the item was NOT being a Transformer. Pretty funny since just about every 3rd part item is listed as a Transformer.

EDIT: It is also possible that my auction was just flagged by an Ebay passerby that decided to be a dick. Who knows?!
