    eBay Price Complaint Thread

    Since we seem to have several threads per week where someone finds an outrageous price for something on eBay and then a bunch of people spend several posts being outraged, I thought I'd start this thread so that threads with eBay outrage have a place to come and share that outrage with likewise outraged individuals. Keeping the outrage in one outrageous place. Of outrage.

    Kinda like the consolidated "I wish Hot Toys would make" thread.

    Go to it!

    Re: eBay Price Complaint Thread

    The prices are outrageous of course, but I can ignore that and usually find what I am looking for at a reasonable price.


    What I don't get however is how everything made before 2008 is "Vintage" and how EVERYTHING is RARE/SUPER RARE/HARD TO FIND. And I mean absolutely everything, if you were to believe eBay listings.

    I've been trying to get the Hot Toys Bank Robber Joker for some time now, missed out when my local online store had them on sale for $95 AU, ended up picking one up yesterday of eBay for $222 AU shipped from the US.

    Most of them on there lately have been around $300-$400 US, nearly fell over backward when I saw what this guy wants for his BRJ.

    You have to be either desperate, loaded or crazy to buy that..

    I ended up getting a bank robber joker for $157 shipped I couldnt believe it I put in a bid for $175 with like 2 mins left saying why not.
    When I got the Joker it had a sticker still on the box for $175 I couldn't beleive he took the loss and sold it to me.

    1 of my first hot toys and the figure is amazing well worth $200 plus.
    On a side note i just recently bought the Art Figures - (SAVES) warzone punisher awesome figure got it for $125 shipped not too bad I know it retailed for like $85.

    If you think thats a crazy ebay price look at this handmade hellboy by Gorae . looks pretty cool but 2,895 ?? And then charge $30 for shipping comon man can I get free shipping for $3000 ?

    It really turns me off from buying from you if you respond to negative feedback on eBay with attempted personal insults.

    Ebay sellers overprice their stuff all the time. For instance, there is a DML James M-60 for,
    $95.00!
    That is just plain ridiculous.

    It appears that it depends on whether you are buying or selling when it comes to hating ebay. Take a look at this very recent thread thread on this very board:

    I don't get blaming or complaining about the cost of items on ebay. Ebay isn't setting the prices. The crap we buy is expensive because of the demand- because of the legions of geeks (like me) who just have to get Wolverine or Blade or Gen. Patton.

    And truth be told- what was there before ebay? You were stuck looking in local classifieds or going to yard sales. Ebay opened up the collecting world in a major way.

    Ain't that the truth.

    I notice none of the complainers have come up with something better......
