Is it wrong to just make one, if you don't resell it???

The pics wouldnt load for me.All I get is the red "x".Personally I wont shell out that much for the loose vinyl Jawa.I'd love to get one but with all the fakes available I'm skeptical.I'd have to know 100% its genuine before I shelled out my money.

The seller pulled the pictures. Regardless, $305. is way to much for that figure.

I guess I didn't realize that was minimum bid price...

I think if it's going to move, one may want to start a bit lower. I'm not the authority on value, but if you ask me, that is a bit steep especially to have as the minimum...

Either way, it would be nice to be the seller.

The seller has had it on before & before & before...

I feel if you want to attract buyers, start the bidding low but addd a reserve to protect it.

It also seems that the price of a loose one is doing good.

How can you be certain it is authentic?  The loose version, I mean.  There's got to be repros out there and less than scrupulous people as well.
