I have... 30 cents, a tin of Altoids, and a gum wrapper. Will that be enough?

It's the thought that counts! Maybe if the gum wrapper has an imprint of Jesus' face, I could auction it to pay for Groove.

Earlier this summer, one of the rarest Transformers pieces hit eBay and sold for a staggering $26,815.00! That item? The unreleased Generation 2 Menasor/Stunticons set! That one certainly turned heads, but the seller z75sales wasn't done, not by a long shot. He's acquired a rather sizable collection of items from an ex Hasbro employee, items that contain rarities, prototypes and mock ups just to give you an idea.

In fact, the same seller just recently posted an auction for the unreleased G2 Megatron, the mold that became G2 Dreadwing and Smokescreen.

z75sales posted a couple of teaser videos on YouTube showing off this massive assortment of shipping boxes, filled with Hasbro and Kenner (which became a part of Hasbro several years ago) products that have yet to see the light of day. The second video even showcases an all black and orange prototype of Beast Wars Transmetals Optimal Optimus!

You can see all of their auction listings by clicking here, and while you're there, go ahead and bookmark it because you don't want to miss what he has coming next!

This person (these people?) certainly have a flair for building hype. Wish I could have a former Hasbro engineer hookup...

I wonder how much z75sales paid for all of that product.

Any one get the feeling some Hasbro Engineers widow just got fleeced out of a lot of money?

My understanding is he is selling for the estate. I'm sure he's getting so sort of percentage for doing so but the stuff is not his...? correct me if I'm wrong.

If so, it's their own fault because...

This would be the smart way to do it. The eBay seller is probably brokering the deal and gets a certain percentage of the sale amount.

I don't know this to be true, but it would make the most sense.

this guy & whoever buys this stuff sickens me, it should be donated to botcon & put on display so everyone can see them. Either that or auction them off and donate all the profits to a charity like st.jude not sold to some rich douchebag with way to much disposable income.

That's a very uneducated statement to make. How do you know how rich this guy is or where they stand financially? Also Botcon? Because Botcon is a non-profit organization?

Or how about getting items like these into the hands of someone who photographs Transformers for a living so that these items can be shared with the rest of the world? ;)

No need to be angry about it man. I can't afford this stuff either, but I don't begrudge anyone picking this stuff up for a moment just because they can. I'll share my chill pills if you'd like one.
