Browsing e-bay for FF items is an interesting experience. You find good deals on soundtracks, items like jewelry and action figures that I personally would never buy but are cool nonetheless, and then you find the more bizarre aspects of FF fandom...

For $26, a blue marble... err, I mean a "Final Attack" materia. ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Live-action Tifa porn movie ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Stainless steel Reina statue ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

They're making more money by selling this watch than Square made by releasing FF:TSW ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

$225 for many little pieces of plastic ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

A poster of Rinoa, Quistis and Selphie. The highest bid is one cent. ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Almost 50 bucks for a moogle beanie baby ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Squall address labels. The perfect gift for people so pathetically obsessed they should be put in a mental hospital ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

I keep seeing "Squall/Rinoa necklace and ring" sets for about $10. For some reason, this one is just the ring and its highest bid is $70. Huh? ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

This doesn't even look like Terra. ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

You can feed a child in a third-world country for a year with the amount of money being spent on this Tifa statue ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Chocobo, tonberry, cactuar and Pupu beanie babies. $76. I wonder if the person who buys these would like to pay for my college tuiton while they're at it? ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Oh god, it got worse, it got so much worse... $162.50 for a 30" plush cactuar. Heck, even if it were cheap, who wants to snuggle up to a cactus? ([Only registered and activated users can see links]) :uh?:

FFII... box. Yes, that's right. You don't get the game, you just get the box that it came in. ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

A $200 T-shirt ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

I still think the Materia marbles and the empty FFII box are the best ones.

yes, Final Fantasy Marbles. I've beem searching for those for the whole of 30 seconds. Seriously, all it is blown glass with a little design. And the "box" set is purely classic.

Hey, I'm just wondering if I could make anything off of the empty soda cans surrounding my computer. Or the cardboard CD holder that came with the PC version of FFVII. Fifty dollars, fifty dollars, do I hear fifty-five? :D

Grrrr, now that Tifa porn movie is just plain DEGRADING TO MY SOULMATE. Whatever ecchi otaku freak show fanboy made that is going to suffer much pain from the Tifa gods someday.

I really want that Tifa statue though... it's SO DAMN COOL. (And unlike the Tifa action figure, it actually looks exactly like her)

And I also thought those die-cast metal figures were REALLY cool! The Terra one did look like Terra, especially if you've seen the CG SD character art for FF6 (not the stuff from the FMVs.)

And... the FF7 materia came with a stand and stuff so it was cool. If I had an obcene ammount of money to throw around I'd buy it :eek:

It would be interesting to put a lone marble up for auction on eBay, label it as a Materia, and see if you can get people to buy it :D
