Hey there bros and bro-ettes.
I've had a mint condition 15th anniversary Megaman thingy, it's Megaman and he comes with his bro Eddie, 7" action figure from Jazwares, it's been sitting on my shelf for years now.

I checked the price on ebay and WHOOOAAA MAN.
As it turns out, an UNBOXED one goes for $22.99ish!
A boxed Megaman X figure goes for 44 dollars!!
Mine is boxed and still has the price tag for $9.99 on it.
WOW.
So am I sitting on a pot of gold here or what? Any information as to why the price suddenly jacked up?

Also, the 10" big ones go for upwards of ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS.


So I'm not going to have anything spectacular in my signature.

I think the obvious answer is that they don't make the toys anymore and they were part of an "anniversary" collection. :V

Welcome back Fred!

Mega Man merchandise in general is fairly scarce, and the Jazwares line was probably one of the better lines released in NA. It's a shame they stopped making more of them. The first series they made for the Mega Man toys were absolute crap, however, Jazwares did improve the quality of later releases.

Speaking of Jazwares, I happen to own all of the Retro Roto figures, and a 10" Mega Man figure, which I got for $5.00.

But $100, you say? Hmmm....

Glad to see you were able to login. :)

No Mega Man figure gets released in really large quantities for a long period of time, even in Japan, so the prices do tend to go up over time. eBay prices might also tend to be a bit higher than the street price since it's a good opportunity for international buyers to get their hands on products that were never released officially in their home country.

Boy i'm a hypocrite for taking a vacation. Anyway, true, and although I never included myself; this board DOES only have about 5 active members. Besides, at least i still post. Hey, i might eventually become active again, though i doubt i'll completely stop posting.
