That'd be cool.  If you happen to end up with an extra, let me know, but don't go out of your way or anything on my account.

The Sandcrawler looks nice... I'd still rather pay like $600 and have the UCS Cuusoo version that isn't going to be produced...

Auction houses typically charge anywhere from 10% to 25%

Seriously, I know eBay isn't Christie's, but it's not that terrible.

Yeah, its pretty sad when you have to mark up shipping just to break even. 

Don't forget your PayPal fees as well.

I'm with you Justin.  If I can strike a deal off-line with people I do it every time, especially if I'm the seller.  It saves you a TON in fees.

See, I'm almost with eBay on this... you're not 'breaking even' by marking up the costs.  You're just making more. 

When you sell something, you do so knowing full well that the cost of using their platform where you have access to millions of potential buyers is that you pay their fees.  That's just the cost of eBay.  If you don't like that, you're free to use Craig's List or have a garage sale.

I think eBay does a lot of dumb ****, and obviously they're pushing the percentage that they charge and at some point they'll need to increase profits on volume instead of fee percentage.  The charging a fee on shipping is because people were charging $2.00 for an expensive item then asking $30 to ship to avoid fees.

Just read something about how Ramis was barely going to be in GBIII anyway and how it's still a go.  Not sure if it's true, but it makes sense if it's more of a 21 Jump Street style reboot than a sequel.

The only thing that upsets me about the Planet cancellation is that they made the last wave exclusive to Europe, so they'll cost an arm and a leg to complete. Guess that's how Canadians/non-Americans feel about Hasbro though.

My wife bought me the 3 OT planet sets off of Amazon for about $23 each.  Twice what they should cost, but not nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

I'm still on the fence about this one... it's more similar to the first UCS X-Wing than I first thought...

I like the Microfighters - they go well with the Landspeeder and Slave I convention exclusives.

Not in a million years could I see Bill Murray agreeing to be in a movie with a CG Harold Ramis.  Ghostbusters is getting a full reboot, or it's over.  Those are the choices.

Haven't they been talking about GB3 for a while now?  I guess he could be a ghost in the new movie..if that ever happens.

How could he play a ghost in the movie if he's dead?  You still need an actor to film it.  Plus, Bill Murray never wanted to do it, and he's definitely not going to do it now.

Face it, GBIII isn't happening unless they recast completely.

I've got tickets to see Ghost in April.

Also just bought tickets to see Queens of the Stone Age in May. 

And a few weeks ago we saw Manowar - which was ******* amazing and by far the loudest thing I've ever heard.

Harold Ramis died.  :(

It's still on my list, yep.  But I'm not in a hurry to spend a fortune on one.  If they're laying around for under $40 I'm interested even with the shipping cost.  If you stumble across more than you need, and don't mind wrapping one up and shipping it... :)

I'm going to run out to the two nearby ones to see if there's any left around here.

EDIT:  Struck out.

Same.  I never saw them in their heyday but was lucky enough to see them 4 times since about 2008.  Really sad.
