    Why are Snow Serpents going for so much $$$?

    I keep seeing Snow Serpents on eBay going for waaaaay too much money....What's with this lately? What causes such a sudden need to have such a figure? There's a Snow Serpent going for $36.50 WITHOUT shipping right now.

    Just wondering.

    I guess if there are people willing to pay that much, sellers will sell it for that… But I understand your confusion, as the price jump seemed to happen very recently, and very quickly. Was Snow Serpent a very popular figure back in the day? Like Snake Eyes or something?

    I assumed it was because he came with a lot of accessories, so maybe he's hard to get complete. I dunno... I haven't tried to get one yet. That's my best guess.

    He is just the new in thing right now. Plus he is cool looking. He was my favorite Cobra in 85, CG and EEL all in one toy.

    I suspect there is at least one person buying everything he sees related to Snow Serpents. That person approached me last year and bought everything I had (complete, loose, accessories, filecard, etc). I guess it is possible that someone with deep enough pockets could drive the prices up by making the supply go away.

    Yeah I noticed this too. I was looking to buy one a couple of weeks ago because I'm trying to replenish Joe's from my childhood and Snow Serpent was one of my faves..... I won't be buying one at these prices though.

    I spoke to this individual recently. He has over 20,000 in varying forms of completeness!
