eBay bidders redefines "stupid f&$%ing idiot"Posted by: Bill Cable 06.02.04 12:01amCreatureCantina.com readers are known to be an intelligent bunch. So I ask you... how would you spend $816 of your collecting dollars? Maybe you'd pick up a 12-back figure in nice condition. One of the main guys like Han, Luke or Vader. Or maybe a couple of the lesser-valued 12-backs. Get a nice pair of unpunched Droids... R2-D2 and C-3PO. Or maybe you'd pick up a Droids Boba Fett with a clear bubble. Or maybe you'd grab some of the rarer POTF figures... a Nikto, Gamorrean Guard, AT-AT Driver or Han Trenchcoat.You could even pick up some Vintage prototypes! Many first shots trade below $800. They're extremely rare and historically important pieces... and for $816 you'd have a good shot at many of them. Or you could get a Micro 4-UP. Those green resin puppies could be the talk of your collection. Or maybe a Vintage cardback Cromalin. You could even afford two of the lesser Jedi Cromalins for $816. Cromalins are the "hard copies" of the printed world... generally one-of-a-kind pieces of Kenner history... a true centerpiece of any focus.Or maybe you'd like to buy some newer figures. $816... that's 154 Saga figures after tax. That's just about every single Saga figure that's been released since Attack of the Clones figures started coming out. That's over two years of collecting right there... $816.So you could do a lot with $816. You could acquire some stunningly significant pieces that would be the highlight of most any collection. OR you could meet your collecting goals for years. Or, if you were an stupid f&$%ing idiot, you could get a single OTC Han Solo re-pack in a sealed plastic case. One such moron can be found on eBay...http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5900795112Yes neotoys, you prove once again the old saying, "A fool and his money are soon parted." You give hope to every scam artist and trickster out that that even to this day, a sucker is born every minute. You've single-handedly raised (or lowered) the bar against which idiots are judged order to be considered stupid f&$%ing idiots. Congratulations! I sincerely hope you cherish every minute you sit and stare at this generally unexceptional and common figure as it sits on your shelf... because that's all the value you'll ever get out of it. You're going to lose every penny of your "investment" if you should ever attempt to unload it.But we can't sit here and call neotoys the only stupid f&$%ing idiot. After all, he's not the only person to bid. havick27 is the stupid f&$%ing idiot who would have paid $806 for this $5 figure that we'll be seeing all over the shelves in the next two weeks. andrealynette is the stupid f&$%ing idiot who would have paid $260 for this mass-produced piece of re-carded plastic. And then there zzsh003. Actually, zzsh003 would have only paid $30 for this figure... which while not the way I'd spend $30, that's really only the cost of the figure + AFA's grading service, so it's tough to criticize.So there you have it... idiocy on display for everyone to see. Hopefully we'll all learn something from this... like that it's time to head over to Wal*mart and bribe an associate to run in back a grab you a sealed case of OTC figures. I wonder if there's enough idiots out there to make us all rich.
