So did any of you get a chance to watch this? It was an interesting show. I found it pretty interesting because the longer I've been self employed and working on Seibertron.com, the more I've been getting into buying and reselling items.
Pete's got a nice collection. Wasn't sure what to expect to see from it. Looks similar to my collection, but I'm assuming that most high end collections start to look the same after a while just with varying degrees of completeness, Lucky Draw Figures, prototypes, and one-of-a-kind items.
As for Pete's "purchases" on the show, he ended up with a Lucky Draw Superlink Rodimus Convoy and a Bumblejumper. I can never get over how much Lucky Draw figures go for. Maybe when I become a millionaire I'll have some interest in those, but they just don't do anything for me. All it took was seeing one gold chromed figure get removed from it's packaging and watching the gold chrome paint stick to the bubble to make me want to stay pretty far away from those things for the time being. The loose Bumblejumper figure he purchased was not worth the money at all. It might have been worth $60, but not $150 in that condition (loose arms, loose head, worn sticker ... oddly enough there's one on eBay right now in that condition which looks very similar
but that's WAY too much for one in that condition).
Really makes me wish I had my stuff on display instead of mostly in storage. The lack of display would make most of you cringe, though I guess I look at the Seibertron.com galleries as my "display"
