While this is true, running ToT will also become irrelevant for getting gear, and a lot of the raidgroups that are running it now will stop. The supply is definitely not going to become a lot higher in 5.4. I think the big question is where are we in the demand curve? My guess is that so far, very few of the Horrors that have dropped have made their way to the AH, because they've stayed in the hands of the raiders. Once the pet-collecting-raiders have been satisfied, then Horrors will start to hit the market. But I have no idea when that will happen, because I have no idea how large the pet-collecting-raiders demographic is compared to the drop rate of Horrors. I just hope it happens prior to 5.4, because otherwise the number of Horrors available to non-raiders could remain very low (until we can solo ToT, of course).

They are high-priced, yes. But overpriced? I don't think we know what the 'right' price is yet, because very few have been sold. From Undermine Journal
(scroll down to the 'Other US Markets' graph), the price is all over the place, with very low numbers.
*edit* Just to follow up on the last point: I know that the usual pattern for this type of instance-dropped pet is for the price to trend sharply downward over time, so it's understandable to think that the current price is overpriced. But if the droprate is low enough and the instance isn't easily soloed next xpac, then it might not follow the pattern of past instance drops.
