If they supposedly sell for such high prices, why didn't they just invest the $40 to clear out the machine?

Some people's children.

Haha, yeah I noticed that too Very Happy. Imagine how awesome it would be to have one of those things in your room, though. But you'd still have to pay if you wanted to get the figures out without breaking it, haha.

I lost. Dangit Chiyo, didn't your dad tell you better than to steal those little figurines? Laughing

Nah, I'd go for a soda machine. But then I'd have to restock it... Hm, manga machine?

I'll laugh when someone draws the image of the real Chiyo-chan carrying the machine. Laughing

Man, like crazychild, if the figures sell so well, why not put in the $40 bucks and then resell them? Totally legal and you still make a profit!

I suspect weed was involved.

Well, that's not really fair... most 16-year-olds I know don't NEED to be on anything to do stupid stuff. And the 5 years between them and the adult counts for less than some would think, too...

If they had stolen it out of love, I would be totally sympathetic. But to do it just for the money?! Lock them up and throw away the key!

Maybe if it was about 10 or so years ago, those figures might be worth something in the USA. But with so many DBZ figures out there, they were pretty stupid.

Maybe Chiyo saw Pani Poni Dash and thought that a weird cat lived inside the soda machine...

BTW if those people were smarter, they would have stolen some other kind of vending machine spoiler[like the ones that were rumored to have used women's underwear in them]

I really don't see how a two dollar figure is high considering most figures retail for 6 and up. I don't want to hear how much this kid thinks anime is worth.
