Insane. He puts those prices because there is an idiot out there who will eventually buy it. Can't really blame the guy can we?  ;D

If I had that kind of money I probably would too. However, those prices are still way over the real going rate.  In many cases they are double the market value.

well now, isn't that a good deal  ::)  - what does an authentic, loose vinyl cape jawa usually go for? i saw two on ebay that ended at ridiculously different prices - one at $85 and one at $225, and both claimed to be authentic.

Maybe so they don't lose money on the deal. They have to make profit on both ends me thinks.
