oohhh
too bad you didn't actually meet the reserve Jetfire, that looks like a nice item. I did that a on a casseticon lot once. I was so happy I that I got it for a great price, but then I clued in that I didn't meet a reserve, and I felt more unintelligent than a post. Don't worry man, there WILL be a next time!

er...., so what exactly did you win? Like the other 2 said, you have to meet the reserve to win.

Jetfire = ?

$66 (us) for a non-TF Omega Supreme? how much more does that guy want?

Didn't this "Omegatron" come after Transformers? thoughti read somewhere that it had, unlike most toys used by Hasbro..

Same thing with my Piranacon. The guy had the reserved price at $220 and I won around $150 so the guy said why not? BTW it's 100% complete, about C9.5 and comes with all 6 Seacon.

Got to watch those snipers though, sometimes they aren't ppl interested in buying the item, only jacking up the price of bidding.

I have noticed several of the sellers there who have repeat bidders, not buyers.

I always just bid what I would like to pay, and if it goes more, then oh well, let that person have it.

For example, i saw a rumble and ravage on the card, frenzy and the other guy...on the card, and bid &75.00, and was the high bidder for 3 days, on the last day it went well over $100, so I let it go.

Its nice to be the winner though
Still even though I was willing to pay it at the time I was having second thoughts on the price this morning.This happen to anyone else?

Thought I'd seen i before.Its the exact same pic as one I went to get before.The guy is clearly asking faaaar to much for it as 2 times the price hasnt been met.
