    Why can't I find a loose NETOSSA?

    Ok peeps,

    Whats the deal with Nettie? Why can't I find her loose and complete?

    I see MOC auctions of her on ebay constantly, but no loose ones? Whats the deal with this??? (and why is it that the one eBay seller keeps listing it, do you guys think she has like 10 cases or what?). When I first started collecting, Nestossa was a rarity and was going for up to $200 MOC...now she's been relinguised to Buy-It-Now prices of $85 a pop.

    I have 5 Netossa MOCs in ranging in C9 to casefresh conditions. I've been tempted to crack one open, but have been advised against doing so. But I don't think I can wait any longer.

    If I can't find a mint complete loose Nettie by the end of the year...then I'm whipping out the X-acto and performin' a c-section on one of my MOCs.

    LOL There have been loose Netossa's on German Ebay, but they are not usually complete, they go for what you can buy a MOC for, and shipping from Germany to the U.S. is slow & expensive. My boyfriend just bought me a MOC Netossa from that lady on Ebay for $85. She got here today and she is gorgeous! The card is US and has one crease on the left side, but that's it. No stickers, no tears, no bent corners. Beautiful! I say perform that operation on the MOC you have that is in the worst condition. I'm hoping to find a MOC in crappy condition so I can open it and have a loose Netossa.

    I've bought 4 Netossa MOC's from her. I think she has already sold something over 50 Netossa's (when I bought my first MOC, she had less than 10 feedback). I actually asked her where she gets them, but I didn't get an answer But she is a REALLY nice person, though. I adviced her not to sell Netossa for a while since IMO Netossa still is a rarity, but won't be for long if she keeps doing this. She did as I suggested, but only for like a month. Now she's back again. It's true, she gets them sold every time, but there will come a time, when every one already has her and the price will be at $20. It's not nice

    My advice, open one!!! I did that too to get my loose Netossa

    My guess would be because she is cheap compared to the others from the 3rd series, we have 1 MOC and 3 loose and complete but the funny thing is 2 out of the 3 came from lots on ebay and we did not even expect her to be in it

    One MOC is for my personal collection and one I've opened for my loose collection to get a loose complete figure. Then the two others, I've paid $65 and $70 for them, so yes, markatisu has right, it's because the price has been lower than normally. The last Netossa went for $60 from that lady on eBay, she just keeps lowering the price.

    Well I just cracked open a MOC Netossa. I figure this is the only way I can get her complete (w/ comic) in MINT condition.

    I also want to crack open a Shower Power CATRA MOC as well. Its in USA casefresh condition, so I am still debating...but most likely I'll do it.

    its about time you did, and yes open sp catra, all the loose complete ones go for just as much ...as much of $100 and i'm sure you are aware of this? why bother waiting...if you have more than one, i assume you do..just do it without debating

    She's been hanging around with Loo-Kee a lot. They are pretty hard to spot.
