Cornerning The Market For "He-Man" Dolls

When you think of the term "cornering the market," what do you think of? My first thought is probably of the attempt by the Hunt Brothers to corner the silver market in 1979.

My friend Jeff brought THIS article to my attention this morning.  It concerns the current attempt by a British performance artist named Jamie Moakes to corner the market in vintage 1980s "Ram Man" action figures. (Ram Man being a supporting character from the old He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon.)  Moakes is documenting his every purchase (and the prices) on You Tube.  (This article has a link to his You Tube channel.)
