I hate to harp on this whole thing, but its so dumb that I just can't get over it. What I think is bothering me so much is that there is no insurance of a level playing field. How is Hasbro checking for counterfit points? They obviously should, if auctions are going to end in the 50,000+ range. I just have a nagging notion that honest collectors are going to be burned by this, and Hasbro's going to have gone through a lot of time, trouble, and effort to appease us, only for it to be botched by a dodgy execution and a few dishonest or malicious collectors. Its bad all around.
Are the winners going to ship off their 70,000 point winning bid in a shoebox to Hasbro? I can imagine the person on the other end, saying, 'Ok, thats 10 points, plus 20 points, plus, oh wow a Royal Starship! That's 150 points, 10 points... Bah, screw it, this looks like enough to me. Mail out the Sacul to Bobby Joe, its a-ok!'
The auctions also bring up a question:
You mean the 2nd Cantina exclusives made it as far as packaged samples? Or is this a final production unit? Either way... wtf?
