    wow, i only paid 600$US for mine but that was years ago.

    She's beautiful - good luck with you sale. Wish I could afford her!
    Has anyone else seen the custom Spinnerella pieces (spinner backpack, comb, and shield) that Starlight Studios is making? They have just shown up on ebay and here in the custom creations section. If anyone gets one, I would love to know if they are as cool as they look in the pictures!

    Rhea and Salamandra from the .org bought them today, hopefully they will show them off.
    but i can tell you they look and function just like in the auctions and YouTube video.

    A ridiculous price I agree. It has now sold for a best offer - whatever that was? It was the European version with a lifted bubble so not mint, so no where near worth what the seller was asking.

    The Canadian version is quite different to the European version in wording on the front and the back of the card and is also much rarer.

    Congrats POP Gal on your sale! You are right that someone very lucky got her. One day after I put my kids through college maybe I will be able to afford a Spinnerella! Of course, by then she will probably be $20,000 for a naked figure.

    In the hilarious irony department, the Starburst She-Ra variant I ordered from ebay arrived yesterday with a suspiciously dark pink comb instead of a comb the same light pink color as the shield and sword. Possibly a Spinny comb?

    That's how I wound up with my Spinny comb...it came in a lot and I was thrilled to get it!

    I did pick up the Spinny accessories from Starlight - they are AWESOME!

    I've purchased other items from the eBay seller who just sold the MOC one - she's a super seller, and I'm so glad to hear that the Spinnerella went to a great home! Someday, I hope to get a MOC Spinny, but I'm enjoying playing with my loose one.

    I got my loose near complete (missing her crown) Spinnerella way back in 2003. Funny thing is she used to belong to another PoP fan on these boards. She honestly is stunning and it may have cost me an arm and a leg but I got her. I seriously hope that sometime somewhere out there someone finds a few cases of her abandoned in some old toy factory or Distribution center and there's enough that the price of her goes down drastically so everyone can own one.

    Amen!

    I am super jealous of anyone who has a real vintage one - they look amazing.

    I did order the custom pieces from Starlight since there have been some good reviews on the boards. My daughter and I are looking forward to spinning our homemade Spinny!

    - - - Updated - - -

    Wow! Who else has seen the new auction for an AFA graded Spinnerella listed for $16,999.95! (Yellow card and turned head to boot.)

    POPGal, you seem to have started a Spinny selling bonanza!

    Yea totally seen that.
    Good luck to the seller, i would not pay that, but something is only worth what a buyer would pay.

    I just wish Spinny wasn't so rare, i like her because of her colors, not her value.

    And you do! I got my loose Spinnerella from you and several customs. You'll be pleased to know that I've gathered enough parts that Spinnerella's now fully dressed (except for the crown)!
