This is what you call a well-timed purchase. Last week, when the controversy started brewing about the Django Unchained action figures, I thought it might be a good idea to get one–controversy is usually a good thing when it comes to collectibles. The figures are sold out everywhere, so, I ended up buying this Django figure from Neca’s eBay store for under $30.
Yesterday, the Weinstein Company decided to pull the plug on Neca’s action figure line after the uproar, and the prices of these figures skyrocketed.
I bought this thing with the hope of making money on it in a few years, but one of these Django figures sold for as high as $1,000 yesterday on eBay! I had thought of getting the whole set, but didn’t feel like spending $150 on action figures I didn’t really want–stupid, stupid, stupid.
