Starting bid of £8500, not taking offers.
The opening description of the set was "Jay is in a proper radge, Sensei Wu has been kidnapped by a reet pair of shanners and the golden weapons have been twoc'd too. Help Jay knack Kruncha and chin Frakjaw to rescue auld gadge Sensei Wu".
It's probably a hacked account. Although why they'd even bother with that one, I don't know.
Last time I checked, having enough of an item to stack an item into a pyramid usually implies that it is NOT hard to find...
This one for example: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290864872715
- BIN price + postage: 49.70
- ebay and paypal combined take roughly 15% so it leaves 42.25
- postage - seller claims to use tracked courier service - cheapest would be hermes with shop drop off at £3.00 so it leaves 39.25 already less than RRP
- now add cost of packaging, printer ink, paper, fuel, time...
Such people are wasting their own and other sellers time.
Could be various reasons, e.g they might have pulled a 50% voucher in a B&M lego store.
Maybe people thought I was making a loss selling Atlantis Portals and Technic trucks last year for around 55% off rrp, but seeing as I got them for 96% and 86% off respectively then it was an easy quick turnaround.
To sell currently available sets you have to do something to give you the edge over a shop, and that usually means being cheaper than the shop unless the item is hard to find.
I get most of my packaging materials from parcels received at work, so they cost me nowt. Just because someone is being undercut on ebay doesn't always mean the undercutters aren't making anything from the sale.
I'm trying to keep on top of all the legitimate methods of getting good deals and I really don't understand this one. Especially the case with Funhouse - it happened only once that it was on 3for2 at TRU but it was loooong time ago.
The actual set:
To be fair, I have got it and it's in my bedroom. And now you got me thinking should i open the inner boxes to check if the content is right...
They could be one of those who likes to make peanuts on things and there are plenty of them about.
£500 + £55 delivery on a second hand UCS SSD
I suppose he's just being hopeful?
A quick look at BL tells you that in the last six months, 885 complete (individual) sets have sold, plus 518 random packs. 46 boxes of 60 have sold. I didn't bother looking up minifigs without accessories.
Even in February, 9 boxes of 60 were sold, averaging about £198 per box - that's £3.30 per minifig average, substantially over RRP, and decent prices compared to average prices per minifig for series 4 onwards.
