Subzero, you know who you are! :lol:
I wouldn’t be surprised if this went for closer to £200.

Probably right... but if you were patient you would pick one up in this condition or better for under £150

You are correct, I bought a really nice one last Sep from FB of all places for.....£125.
I couldn’t believe that the auction went under the radar, you have just got to be patient and throw in a bit of luck!

What did I do this time? :lol:

Badly listed auctions are now mostly a thing of the past unfortunately, you'll still pay for it thanks to ebay's suggested items feature. :(

This is the way people spot these poorly listed auctions, the last few weeks iv'e been looking for a 1994 USA World Cup sticker album typing in the words 'USA 94 sticker album' into the search, when looking at one of the latest ones listed I spotted recommended ones for similar items inside that listing suggested by ebay. I seen one that wasn't showing up in my results in previous searches, with the poor title 'Panini album'... now you'd think nobody would bid on that because nobody is searching for just 'Panini album' when looking for this USA 94 album, but through the last day of the auction every fucker was bidding on it and my nice little secret auction wasn't so secret anymore and I ended up paying what it usually goes for.

Everyone else was also spotting it as a suggested item while looking at the same album from other sellers. :|

the infamous disco boots varaint! overated plastic for sure. it hasna different mould and looks as though the figure is wearing platform shoes

i thought it was i had a punt at £10 lol purely as a novelty variant

i actually asked on jabbas court if it was the a disco boots variant i was quickly told no by a member!

its value in the variant circle is £300-800 crazy

the above example shows how ridiculous variant collecting has become

i suggest all members check there DSC and put it on ebay/jabbas auctions and cash in if they have the platform shoe mould
