I know it's not as cheap as in the store, but I haven't seen them in the stores, so this is as cheap as I've seen them get. There are 3 available if there are any among you who cannot resist, here you go. -Radar

I think trying to sell Series 2 figures online now might not be a great idea. Here's the thing: If I'm getting ready to buy boosters, why get singles from eBay? There's a chance I'll get those figures in a new booster anyway. eBay is great for filling out your collection, but it would be pretty expensive to start there from scratch (which is what we're all currently doing with Series 2.)
I do not know that I agree that it would not be a good time to sell at this point to get in on the hype and rarity. There are plenty of ebayers out there, and I don't think that as alot of people are going to start looking for Christmas shopping over the next few months, that ebay is not going to be a great place to sell in the future. The current ebay market has seemed to lull from the highs it was at before, and is likely the effects of supply and demands. I think this is great for everyone buyer and seller alike. I have always priced at my cost when listing on ebay, I have thought that the figures from a booster could be fairly broken down into varying price targets given their rarity. IMO, if a booster costs 7.55 post tax, you could price the common for around 1.25, the rare for 2.50 and the super rare for 3.75 to spread the cost of the booster across the figures based on their rarity scale. Obviously no one here is going to be able to give up their day job to push a secondary market on ebay. The cost differential with ebay and/or paypal fees don't allow you to do it without pricing yourself out of the market. Again IMO. It is a good way to move the mutiples and doubles you may have if you know how. It will be intersting to see how the ebay stores that have been moving alot of attacktix in the past handle series 2 and continue to price series 1 and series 2.
