I have just returned from a short hiatus, and I was searching eBay for some foreign POTF2 figures to fill in some gaps in my collections. Italian figures have always interested me, and I have a pretty large collection of them. I noticed this auction, and instantly put it in my watch. I figured I'd be able to pick them up for $10 each. . . I mean. . . they are only short sabers! Low and behold I look at the auction. . . and the prices have skyrocketed! Are these particular POTF@ Italian figures really that rare?!?!? I can't remember the last time I've seen a SS Ben, but then again. . . I have been away from my searches.
So. . . what is the deal? Can anyone shed some light as to why these two figures would be so high? It kinda caught me offguard.
