There is a guy on eBay that should stop with the heavy drinking..He's selling a Mint/Sealed Godzilla's Go-Cart and asking 25 Grand..I'm still laughing from seeing it on ebay, that HOT coffee came out of my nose!!

I guess it is how much a SUCKER will pay..Hopefully he won't find any..What a loser :jest: r!!

Sorry but when people try to get away with this SH-T like this, they should be stopped!! :lol:

The only way I would buy that thing is if it put itself together and drove to my house.. :lol:

Sounds like an effective way to get noticed at least!
Someone last week was selling a sealed Monster Scenes Giant Insect and had a Buy It Now price of $23,000. Alot of people noticed it so I guess he accomplished what he wanted to do. I don't believe that anyone would ever pay that price but he did make a nice little profit.

Just goes to show you...PL has saved us plenty of moo-lah by re-issueing these Aurora classics for us at a price nobody can beat!

Thanks PL!

MMM :thumbsup:

Darn right!

If we had a proper people's government like North Korea or Cuba, this kind bourgois capitalism nonsense would not be tolerated.

Unfortunately, the American government with their decadent system of free enterprise and personal freedom continue to allow such exploitation of the genetically disenfranchised.

Brent Gair..BRAVO!!!!!!! :thumbsup:

I didn't want to come off like an A--Hole but enough is enough in my book!!

Can't people sell thing's without the thought of having to make BIG BUCKS off of a product or another person??

Having seen a decline in Original Aurora model prices, may not be such a bad thing for the buyer, I guess my way of thinking (and having sold Original Aurora kits), if I can pass it on to the next person (who will enjoy it better) then thats cool..I love Aurora kits..BUT don't build them, I used to just keep them boxed in my closet..I have to say alot of you guy's here on the board who build them (what ever kit it may be) do a FANTASTIC Job!! Thats what I mean in regards to selling them to someone who will be able to enjoy them more.

Even coming across Hobby Shops that would put aside the PL Chase kits just to get more money..Shame on you :tongue:

As long as PL keeps bringing such great kits to US, then what more can one say but..Thanks for these cool products :D

David hi,
Not laughing at the fact that it's an Aurora Godzilla's Go-Cart Mint/Sealed kit for sale..I am laughing at the part of that the guy is looking to get 25 Grand for it..Lets be realistic..You can get good money for it but 25 Grand?? :lol:

So then lets start pricing kits shall we??

Monster Scenes Dr Jekyll as Mr Hyde $100.000.00
Monster Scenes Dracula $100.000.00
Sealed of course!! VERY RARE!!

It's that if you find someone out there strange enough to pay the price, then maybe he'd also be interested in an Original Corgi 66 Batmobile Mint/Boxed for..mm?? Lets say $280.000.00...Let's NOT!!

Hey maybe we can get the same guy to buy the Brooklyn Bridge too..

I hear it's rare and in demand..Gotta have one too, there's only 1 hanging around :jest:

If you want to sell something be realistic as far as pricing goes..

Hey Brent - I think somebody missed the point...
Bottom line is people can ask for as much or as little as they want when selling something. If somebody else wants to pay outlandish prices for a cardboard box filled with plastic pieces, that's their business. If you want a reality check, look into what some people have paid for comic books or old tin toy robots. Or if you REALLY want to spit your coffee on the Computer screen, look up some baseball card prices.
They say the difference between men and boys are the price of their toys - well, I guess I'm hopelessly stuck in kiddieland!

Ageed ChrisW! :wave:

I think the point of the seller was to just have their item stand out more than normal and it is obvious in both examples I posted that they did. Now, if they actually got that much for their items, then I think this thread would hold more interest for me.
We have alot to be thankful for in this day of model building that we can still enjoy the simple things in life and not get gouged in the process!
This is partly due to PL and re-issueing the old Aurora kits we loved as kids!

MMM :thumbsup:

Well you know what they say about a fool and his money. I'm sorry but I'd have no sympathy for anyone spending 25K on a model. You would think a person spending 25k on ANYTHING would research that particular item up the giggy. At least do enough research to discover there's a cute little company out in Indy the recently re-released the G/C and can still be picked up for about $25.00.

But here's another scenerio: Some E-bayers have multiple ID's and can play it out like this:
1) Put the item up for a ridiculous price under one ID
2) Buy your own item for said ridiculous price under a different ID- Now
the enire E-bay Community has access to seeing this thing move for
$25K.
3) Under a THIRD ID put the same kit up for a fraction of the original
price (say $4,500.00??).

After seeing this thing move for $25,000.00 some sucker will think he's getting a mega-bargain for $4,500.00 and jump right on it.

The seller should also include a bag of candy kisses in the transaction because its always good manners to give a person kisses while your *screwing* them.

Not to mention the cheap ++ feedback

Jimmy B hi,
Isn't something like that called shilling?? (may have spelled it wrong)?

eBay should try and check this crap out..even though I know sometimes hard to do..Man I cough the wrong way and I get yelled at!!
These people get away with it..What a lovely world it be!! :tongue:

Say were are these G/C available from?? if you can't post it e-mail me and let me know..Are they resin??

Fisheaded Man hi, You have to realize that taking shipping costs off of the 25K kit would be in possible to do..Gotta figure cause when screwing a customer you want to make sure you go all the way till the nuckle heads eyes pOp out :freak: :lol:

That's a good theory....but don't you have pay ebay a "%" of the selling/sold price?

....I don't deal on ebay....so I really don't know!
