I hope some rich European would buy me one of each of the Wooden Bearbricks.

I would be so happy.

Whomever bought those Chums had a lofty reserve too...they went for ten bucks over what I bid (well, the yellow went for like 400 over) and I bid in the last few seconds...who knows how high the bidder(s) was/were going.

Yep hypebeasts too boot...had a rep at the Buff show buying a few things and were at the KaijuinvadesNYC show talking up how Kaiju needed to be recognised as an art form - or more cynically - a new area they can try to exploit for money

The Jarvis vinyl they've had recently has had a 20% + mark up on eBay prices :rolleyes:

Philips is a very well known auction house that owns the market right beneath Sothebys and Christies.

keep in mind, those auction prices include a buyer's premium of 25% which goes to the auction house, not seller.

I physically attended the Phillip auction in person, which also could be bid on via ebay live auctions. The hammer price for the brown dissected was 800 and the gray 5YL was 600. In addition, a Vader went for 400 and a set of pink twins for 350. Take into consideration the buyer pays a 25% commission and NY sales tax on top of this. Here's a couple of pics from the auction lot exhibit and fyi - i've got a 99 gray companion up for grabs, so pm me.

Kinda, I see a Blue GID Companion is looking at $600 shipped with 10 hrs left. That's about average.

Me too, a bunch of 5YLs are priced at high BIN prices or start out at a grand. That's why they aren't selling IMO. The $45 shipping seems to be the icing on the cake.
