    Any fan of the hit Transformers series that wants to own more than action figures and matchbox cars had better check out some of the auctions on eBay. Certain people have somehow managed to acquire props from the movie Transformers, and feel like sharing via eBay. For what's just over $14,000 now, you can own "Bumblebee", the cute yellow car that turns into a robot. $14,000 does not cover the robot part of the Transformer, unfortunately.

    All proceeds of this auction will be donated to Fisher House™ Foundation.

    Point taken but if you do not wish to pay for his artwork you can go here - http://www.banksy.co.uk/shop/index.html and print it off for yourself.

    But i guess each to there own im just trying to afford a house and cant understand people spending large amounts of money on these types of items.

    Think of it as an investment? You know how you have that art style of throwing paint onto a canvas? The guy that invented that was the first person to do that (anyone who copies is just unoriginal). His art was incredibly controversial, and the Australian government got slammed when we bought the original artwork around 30-40 years ago for 7 million dollars.

    Everyone was like "thats a piece of shit, its not art, a kid could have done that" etc.
    But he was the first person to use the idea, it was an original concept and today that artwork is worth upwards of $100 Million. It was a good investment :)

    More to the point does the chick come with it??? Now that would be worth the 15k!! :roll:
