A retailer many of us know had a heck of a Christmas sale in December deeply discounting $100.00 to $125.00 boxed figures long sold out from an infamous brand for $25.00 each.
I know many purchased them for some really good choice loose parts.
Now . . . if one takes a look on eBay . . . one can see a slight deluge of those same figures listed for $100.00 to $250.00 each with some said or unsaid expectation the sellers can sell them for that much.
They're in for a very rude and well earned awakening.
I can appreciate times of profiteering. I do, but it's a matter of nuances.
I sometimes believe there are more idiot/stupid collectors without a clue in the 1:6 hobby than 1:6 collectors with common sense.
Of course, I digress.
On an unrelated matter, I picked up three 21SCTCT carded modern uniform sets for $36.00 shipped from a best offer deal when the seller wanted $35.00 a piece for them. I guess the seller wanted the $ considering no one wanted to buy them at the price originally set.
It pays to be patient.
