Can you believe it, $43!!!

Screaming Banshee toy

[align="alignleft"]I asked Mom to look on eBay for the Screaming Banshee toy.  We found one, but it was too expensive.  Here is the auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120616232482&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT .

So we looked on Amazon.  Still too expensive:  http://www.amazon.com/Mattel-M2281-CARS-Banshee-Playset/dp/B0014484GS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=toys-and-games&qid=1283982888&sr=8-1

I really wanted to save my money and buy this toy because it’s a pretty cool “Cars” character.  But I can’t buy it because they didn’t make a lot of them, so collectors buy them, and that’s why the price is so high.  But collectors just make that poor toy sit on a shelf!!!

The Screaming Banshee is a character from a funny short called “Mater and the Ghost Light”, with the movie “Cars”.  Here’s a picture of the Screaming Banshee:

Here’s the video of “Mater and the Ghost Light”.  It’s pretty funny:

    That stinks! Don’t you just hate how they make only a few cool toys and like 40 billion of something dumb?! My youngest girl loved “Wind Dancer Ponies” they were really pretty, not too expensive…and brittle, so they broke too easily. Now I can’t find them anywhere and I really want to stop supergluing the ones I have! I should check e-bay…

    Yeah, almost every time we go to Walmart & we go to the toy aisle, almost all the time I see almost nothing I want. Everything is silly. :(
