Hasbro Jurassic Park Chaos Effect Pachycephalosaurus & Ajay
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.
WWE Jeff Hardy Elite collection Series 1 Mattel Legends
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.”

Stormtrooper white figure stand salesman sample 12 A back AFA 75
This is an interesting figure in that it is a salesman’s sample. “The 12 A back figures with the white footer or figure stand underneath the figure’s feet inside the plastic bubble indicates this is an early Kenner salesman sample used to promote the line to toy stores.” This one sold for $4,850.00 after 26 bids.

The first generation Megatron figure is a holy grail for any Transformers collector, and this boxed example sold for an impressive $4,171.23.
All of these items recently sold on eBay. Items purchased with “Best Offers” were not included in this list.
wait wait is that 10k for Jeff Hardy or for Greg Valentine ?
and the strange thing about that hardy figure is that it can be had loose for under $50 , Im not understanding whats going on there
I’m just as lost as you, especially since there are a few others up for sale at ridiculous prices too, but I can only tell you what was mentioned in the listing. Craziness. I wouldn’t be surprised if a whole truckload of these is “found” before long.
The Toy Box says
Probably not the best or most appropriate place to put this, but wanted to point you to The Toy Box (thetoybox1138.blogspot.com) for next week’s Round Robin Challenge. It goes live at 8:00 AM EST on March 10, 2017! I hope to see a link from you in the comment section of the challenge with your post!
Awesome! I’ll definitely try and make an appearance!
Hasbro Jurassic Park Chaos Effect Pachycephalosaurus & Ajay two-pack is a prototype, from the cancelled “Night Hunter” line. For what it’s worth, no carded sample of this has ever been offered for sale, and this two-pack has long been considered to not exist at all. Probably one of a kind item.
Wow, thanks for the backstory on this one. I guess i can take it off my list of things to look for at flea markets! 😉 I wonder if the original eBay listing offered up all this info.
