Saga after retail - eBay prices
« on: November 3, 2005, 12:15 PM »
You know how it is with eBay: every once in a while some item goes for a lot, and it leaves me scratching my head, thinking "was this figure really hard to find?"

Like Maul here: $26.00

So - was this hard to find?

Nowhere NEAR hard to find.  Clearanced at KB in droves.  I bought one simply for the metal hilt to give to my (hoped for at the time) ultimate Maul figure...  Now that I have that figure pretty much with the Evolutions one, youc an guess what he's getting in his stocking for X-Mas! :)

Yes little maully, your own special little metal lightsaber.  Awwwwwww, yeah I love you too buddy....

God it's late and I'm getting weird.  Goodnight.

Now that's weird.  ???

Must be a fluke, or a DVD-release-craziness-driven auction.

It's a movie year and weirder things have happened this year. Way over priced. I could sell the guy one of my extra's carded for like $15 with shipping and be happy (joke).

I got a Shu Mai from the Screen Scene set for a buck off ebay the other day.  I actually got most of those Screen Scene figs for two bucks or less the same way.

Nice. I paid $15 for that set during a sale, and it was one of those purchases where I'm like "why?"

But that was back in those days where I bought damn near everything.

i picked up that exact darth maul on ebay about a week ago for $5.00. sometimes i think people just don't bother to look for a better deal, or they just want the figure right this minute, a sort of passing fancy, i do get that way somtimes! ;D but either way that was far to much for that figure!

It was probably somebody just not knowing how to watch auctions on ebay. I mean, wait until the last 5 minutes and if the figure is in a price range you'll pay, then go for it. Chances are you'll get it and get it at a price you want and are happy with, and that saves you money.

What I think is crazy is how a couple of bidders will compete against each other and the winner ends up paying way too much.

There was recently an auction for a loose Dexter Jettster that went for almost $30.00 because two guys kept bidding on it.

It was like the figure didn't matter anymore, just beating the other guy.
