Okay, this auction has been deleted but it is still listed in the auction results. This Jurassic Park two-pack sold for an astounding $12,100.00 after 71 bids! Who can fill me in on the story behind this toy? I tried to find some more info to explain this out-of-this-world price, but came up empty.
Here’s another figure to keep an eye out for — sold for $10,000.00 with Buy It Now. There are a few other samples of this figure up for sale on eBay, which makes you wonder just how rare these really are to find. From the auction listing: “Considered to be one of, if not the, rarest wrestling figure of all time, Hasbro’s Greg Valentine decked in “Rhythm and Blues” gear was first seen in a Toys’R’Us ad for the WWF Hasbro line in the March 1991 edition of WWF Magazine. The figure was never released, apparently because the Rhythm and Blues tag team of Honky Tonk Man and Greg “The Hammer” Valentine broke up just months before the ad went out. The Honky Tonk Man figure was eventually released, but Greg Valentine no longer had the same gimmick, so this particular version of his figure was scrapped. While various other unreleased wrestling figure prototypes spanning from LJN to the current Mattel line have eventually found their way into collectors’ collections, this figure never even made its existence known to the public outside of that 1991 ad, until recently when a single Greg Valentine “Rhythm and Blues” Hasbro prototype was put up for sale. Current WWE superstar, and wrestling memorabilia collector himself, Zack Ryder bid $12,000 for the figure, though the figure currently remains unsold with a $55,000 asking price.”
