As a lifelong collector I am always fascinated by collectables that sell for large sums of money. Even if it happens to be something that I myself do not collect I still find it interesting. Like this 1990 TMNT Technodrome from Playmates which sold last night in auction on eBay for a pretty penny.
As mentioned in a previous post I periodically visit the original home of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mirage Studios, to see what is being sold. They are in the “ramping down” stages so you never know what goodies you might find, like this factory sealed Technodrome which is regarded by many as one of the Holy Grails in TMNT collecting.
The auction started on October 23rd with a starting price of $19.99 and in the course of one day it quickly jumped to $1500.00. The Playmates Technodrome, which will come from Mirage with a COA signed by TMNT co-creator Peter Laird, closed last night with a final sale price of $2025.00 which is amazing if you ask me.
