Checking sold on ebay and they both are nearing $200 for just one Destro Gold Or 1 Piper. Thats a crazy fast climb. I got a destro months ago for $40 and thought that was high. Now i have no way to get piper. This is insane. this year all con items are jumping.

That's what happens when it sells out... It suddenly costs 4x as much. In three or four years, you might be able to buy it for say... $100.. But I doubt it, if the line keeps going the way it currently appears to be.

THe cost is way off the chart but I find that when I don't get something when it is first available that later on down the road I want it. And that is when the price is off the chart. At that point you just have to figure out how bad you want it. But for $200 for one figure, IMHO that would be one figure that would be missing from my collection. I can always think of a lot of other stuuf I could pick up for that price.

I don't mind paying $200 for a figure - I've spent plenty on my Heavy Metal w/mic, Starduster and minty Viper Pilot (not quite that much for any one of them, however), and I know I'll spend the cash on the other more rare figures - but not for this.

 

It's just too recent... I think a lot of people are jumping on the 25th Anniversary bandwagon and when it dies down a bit and people move on (other than the hard core Joe collectors, of course), the price will come down too.

Well, it looks like it's time for me to sell my extras. I grabbed 5 at Con (one to open, one to get signed, one for my roomie, and one for a bud)....I know that there were only 2 gold PDD's at Con, and my buddy Big Iron had one...sold it for a cool Franklin.

Yeah, I didn't want to pay 40 to 60 while the con was just wrapping up, so there's no way I'm paying 200, fuggedaboutit. I will trade a board member here for one, but It's not worth ebaying PDD anymore. Remember this is one ugly get-up Destro's in in the first place.
