We are having a lot of difficulty getting Starters and Wave 1 ships in.  I would expect to see ridiculous markups on TIE Adv., Starters and especially Y-Wings within the week.  I hope the current restocking issue gets resolved soon, I'm still waiting on my Y-Wings and it's been a month since I ordered them.  I'm not at all surprised to see one of the few Falcons up on eBay for a large sum, but I think most of us can wait, even if we would rather not.

It's kind of a shame, but it's his prerogative. Hope it pays for his trip, if anyone buys it.

Gee, that's only a 1000% mark up from what I could get from having a little patience.

Looks like he is from WI, so, yeah, looks like that should cover most of the cost of the trip - especially if he didn't spend the night.

 

Someone is bound to make him an offer ;)

I think 29.95 is a good offer.  I'll even wait until February for it to be shipped, or just win my own at the KRT.  Although I'd probably pick the Firespray first.

 Maybe he just doesn't really care about having the ship three months early, and is taking advantage of people who will give him 75 dollar offers for it?  Good on him for taking advantage of people's desires to pay premium dollars for things that aren't officially out yet.  It's not like he's aiming to sell it for 250, he's just fishing the market for offers.

Where on planet Earth are you, and can I help?

And my contribution to the thread. The Falcon is cool, but it ain't $250.00 cool. Not when I can get as many as I want for $30 in February.  I got dollars to spend on the LCG.

 Honestly I'm surprised he's willing to let it go so cheap.

yeah,
I agree with R5Don4 that he could have gotten alot more for it. once you get into silly money territory why stop at $250…
Affluent gamers are renown for dropping ridiculous ammounts of money to get stuff like this..It might have even made $1K.

For the rest of us, we'll have to win one or proxy if we wanna play with a Falcon before February.

Panic…

If there had been something unique about the prize ones I'd keep it, but since its the same as what everyone will be able to buy in a couple months I'd have sold it now and then used part of the money from it to preorder the Falcon plus the rest of wave 2.

And this incomplete one is listed at $500. I will be surprised if this one sells…I wouldn't even consider it without the upgrade cards.

I made a Best Offer of $15, since it's not complete and you will be able to buy a new one in a few months for $20 online.  I doubt he'll go for it, but what the heck.  It's all it's worth to me.

[EDIT] - Already declined, that was fast!

Nope, he's selling all the upgrade cards in other auctions.  Get this, 4 single cards at $90 each, plus 2 auctions with double cards for $180 and $190.  Best part, $71.28 shipping?!?

r5d4rules is the seller.

Best of luck.

 LOL hes selling the cards indivually for 90$…. I dont think he understands the value of a dollar (however Im sure there are people with more money then they can spend)


This is one of the main reasons Xwing is awesome! http://community.fan...ake-long/page-4
