    I wonder if I should put mine up for sale. I love Bubble Power She-ra but if someone is willing to pay that much for it, she may have to go!

    ok bubble power she-ra usually goes for only 150, this is crazy, looks like the same few people just kept outbidding each other, which is annoying to other fans as it drives up the price unecessarily.

    exactly...that is one thing that really ticks me off, i have seen many mocs she-ra or he-man and these people love to bid so frinkin high and then they wont pay up cause someone else bid high as well and they get stuck with what they almost maxed bid. if you dont wanna pay..dont bid...

    Holy ******! I agree, that was riduculous. Funny thing about that auction. I had seen that one about, oh a month or so ago. Same pic, same description. Right down to the part about the bubbles on the figure's armbands and boots (I think that's what they said). How many bubbly figures does one person have?

    Wow...

    Wish I bought up 10 of them when I was a kid (they were all over the shelves in my local toy store), and had them now.

    Hi Melody The same seller did have Bubble Power for auction like a month ago or something, I won it that time BUT I believe there is nothing fishy about this auction cause Italians usually have better access to the third series figs. If I remember correctly, this is the third Bubble Power for this seller (not sure though). My BP arrived very quickly and extremely well packaged + the seller commmunicated VERY WELL compared to some eBay sellers who don't bother sending any kind of messages

    I also think that the winner of this auction is a beginner in collecting She-Ra (I've noticed the buyer bidding on several She-Ra auctions). Otherwise the price would't have got this high. Usually the prices get high when there are new ones that think "This is rare, I'll get it whatever it costs!" cause they don't believe that there will come others...

    I agree. At this moment there are a few eBayers that keep on bidding on She-Ra auctions all the time. They just have be the highest bidder from beginning to end I've learned not to participate in these auctions

    Yeh its just discouraging, especially when u know its an expensive item anyway, and you want to try to keep the cost down as much as you can. I can understand something like a defender of good box set going for $500 plus, or a spinny moc, but Bubble power she-ra is still well below that, and within the range of most of us! Good philosophy SaMa, not bothering with auctions like that. I've noticed there's been groups of people that for a while bid on all sorts of things, does anyone know if these people end up actually paying for the items they bid huge amounts for?

    Hey, Saara! Whew! I almost thought it was a scam! Yeah, I'm staying out of those auctions, too.

    Surya, I'd love to know the answer to that question. I see the same people bidding on the same types of lots and I wonder if they do pay and, if so, do they need 10 Glimmers and 20 She-Ra's? It just makes it harder for those of us who can't spend a lot on these dolls. My kingdom for Bubble Power She-Ra, Shower Power Catra, and, of course, Lady Spinny!!!
