auctions of great absurdity

Recommended Posts

Here's one that you should look at: a doyusha yf-21

His description states that the item was originally created in 1993 :lol:<_< You could buy it now for $100.00 US which is a real bargain :rolleyes:

I'm glad you brought that up. I saw the auction and had no intention of bidding on it, but I was wondering what it was. Seems they deliberately chose an angle in the picture that makes the thing seem bigger than it really is--I thought it looked like one of those wooden museum-type models.

I think it's funny how he said he has had these items for 7 years when most of that stuff was released in the past 2 years. :blink: Plus look at his feedback...a fellow MW'er gave him negative feedback. :huh: Look who it is.... ;)

I would like to nominate this thread as being the FRIST "Auctions" topic to be PINNED.

As most of you know Kantana will be gone for awhile if not longer due to his very un-happy circumstances.

I think as a tribute to him, THE KING OF EBAY, the Mods should pin this topic.

Mods please take this into consideration.

Also anyone else who thinks this is a good idea please speak up.

Rob MN :)

totally agree with that !

He s facing troubles and letting him "at home" in MW forum could be more than just a symbol. He is a great contributor here, mods please pin this topic.

Is this guy nuts or what?

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi...&category=16467

Do you guys smell a rat?

1/2 than regular price :blink::blink:

Good deal or good trap ? .... dunno maybe he needs cash that bad.

The seller used to be (or possibly still is) a member here. IIRC from one of the "who are you and where are you from threads", 2cents is a tattoo artist. As far as I know, he's always been a straight up guy.

My guess is, he saw how much Macross stuff goes for in Australia and figured, he could sell it for less than most Australian sellers, and still get more for his 1/48 than he could if he sold it on the American eBay.

Is it just me, or have people around here been overly paranoid lately?

I agree, this topic should be pinned. It tends to be near the top all the time anyway, and it's a good place to collect all the "WTF is going on in that auction?" banter.

In my case it is just that this MIB 1/48 is as expensive as the most loose old 1/55 of ebay. I had never seen that before. With this auction xmas occurs twice this year. :lol:

Actually, it's an item from eBay in the US appearing on the Australian site (he ships internationally, so that's why). I've gotten e-mails from people all over the place using their eBay sites.

I was just guessing on that part. :D

That's good info to know about eBay.

Yep, it shows up in the American ebay as well. $45 may seem like a low starting price but if you really want to sell something, you might as well start it at an attractive price and let the market determine the final price. I'm sure by the time the auction is done, it'll be over $80 and probably over $100.

You also save a little bit on insertion fees by starting low. In this case he saved $1.10 by starting the auction below $50.

WTF? ? :unsure: ?

Maybe I'm a bit naive, but what the heck are these?

What's the signifigance of the letters "sdfs" other than the fact their all next to each other on the keyboard?

I must've been asleep when they explained this.

Well it's like a loop hole. You can list some thing that you are positive that no one will buy. Once the auction ends and no body bought it you can re-list the item with the original intended item with a very high start price. As everybody knows that on eBay if you list something and it doesn't sell you can re-list it and if it sells, there is no listing fee. So it's like listing for free. It's actually kinda smart and you can save money, but if you do it too much you can get kicked off of ebay.

Could be something illegal? Like a code or something only meant for that guy....

I dare someone else to bid on it B))

Who know it could be a Billionare giveing away money...."I will auction 1 million dollars....but I won't give any info and see who bids on it. Now if someone does bid on the auction with no information they are truly deserving of the money because it is obvious the world will eat them alive...." :blink:
