So yesterday, Mr. Wade Thurman was bragging about his newly acquired Sy-Klone. I think that's great that he finally has the figure (not that not having it would have stopped Mr. Sunday from having a crush on him... but I digress...). Anyways, I went to Ebay and did some random searches and saw a rather nice complete Dragon Blaster Skeletor for $45 with 6 more minutes to go. "Hah!," I thought to myself, "let's jack up the price on that Skeletor!". So I placed a bid for $48.88 and hoped that the buyer will get closer to $50 for it.
The price creeped up to $46, and I was the highest bidder. 4.5 more minutes to go. Help! I don't want a DB Skeletor for that price. Heck, I can't afford a DB Skeletor for that price. 3 minutes. 2 minutes, and the price was still at $46. Come on, someone bid on this figure! 60 seconds, and I was still the highest bidder. 30 seconds - ack, I'll have to pay $46 plus shipping for a Dragon Blaster Skeletor. 10 seconds - what, nobody is sniping this figure? Closed. Ack, I've actually won a Dragon Blaster Skeletor that I didn't really want in the first place and I don't think I can afford. Moral of the story - don't bid on something that you (aka I) can't afford.
Anyways, I paid for it since I've already got it and guess what, less than 24 hours later it's status has changed to "shipped"! Wow, I'm now the proud owner of a $46 complete (I hope) Dragon Blaster Skeletor.
