There are scalpers everywhere. The $500 is really a wishful thinking, I don’t think there’s going to be anyone biting into it. The same goes for vintage big boxes that are on ebay for these kind of prices but never sell.
I’m not so sure about it. In Autoscout the seller asks for an high price, then you bargain to lower it. Ebay is different: the asked price can only rise. So, if the real market price of those items were a lot less, we’d see lower requests. And if there is (a lot of) people who accept to keep an item for years accepting not to unseal it and see the contents, well I would not be surprised of the prices they could accept to pay…
Eheh. I remember he once posted a pic of a huge bunch of remainders with many boxes of MM and MI… I thought something like “well, maybe he’s keeping that stuff for a rainy day, just in case. He only has to sign the boxes and put them on the bay”…
They can ask for a million dollars, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to get it. An item is only worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it. To find out the real market value you should filter by items that were actually sold. Though it gets a bit tricky with items that are rare and/or doesn’t have much of a market activity.
Well, they paid for it and can do whatever they want with it.
Maybe they need cash right now, maybe this was the plan from the beginning (btw. at least he listed its origin and price of the Kickstarter tier).
And since my own signed box is on its way I don’t really care
