He could have double barrel ketchup/mustard dispensers and relish jars as weapons.

the joke was who would pay money for a hot dog colored toy.

You have yellow hot dogs in Canada? @smilepunch@

@loll@ @loll@ @loll@ @can@ strikes again! @can@

Yeah, it's some law about how Hot Dogs must be yellow and Frankfurters must be white.

@loll@ LMAO! Since we are talking off topic, who would buy an Oscar Mayer wiener-mobile Transformer?

I was actually poking fun at the Yellow-Butter/White-Margarine law, but maybe that's just a Quebec thing...

There is a good possibility that half of that list will become reality. However, like synch said "Everthing is pretty damn well fake untill TNI or another trustworthy site can confirm it." I for one would like to see more Green Lanterns.

No reason to get offended or anything, 1337W422102.

Hey, I'm not offended, I just think that a high-priced MISB collector's item and some ZOMG NU KOLORZ kids' toy are two different things, that's all.

Maybe I just misinterpreted the comic: the $500 could be what the seller's asking for the Sunstreaker, which would fit well with the 'not worth the money' idea. Crap, I guess I read this one wrong. Sorry, gang! @smilepunch@

But why is 'streaker so high-priced?

I think the point is, why is one considered a high-priced collectable while the other is just a kids' toy.

They're both kids' toys, but one has been around awhile and the other is new...so, in 20 years, what's changed? Both toys, imo, could be considered subpar, but w/ one ('streaker), childhood memories (and the profit-motive of the seller) have kicked in.

So what's the difference? 20 years of half-forgotten memories, and the desire to relive them.

..and ratchet looks like a chicken wearing boxer-briefs.

Supply and demand, I guess.
