225 Blister Lot on E-Bay
« on: April 26, 2007, 07:46:02 AM »
This one looks like a total crap-shoot, but anyone going to take the chance and try to get it?

If not, my less than good judgement is telling me to buy it, and then do a lot of trading. 

If anyone else has already had this brilliant idea, and is actively trying to get the lot, just lemme know, and I won't bid on it.

I would'nt bid on something without knowing what's there. His reserve is going to me almost as much as his buy it now. Let it not sell and we can see if he's willing to list it here or at least give a list and part it out.

I agree. Not listing anything about the figs sounds fishy to me. Let him sweat and then maybe he can list here where they might go to good homes.

I was really hoping there was listing of the minis.  But we'll see if there's any updates later.

Need more DL stuff.

Ahhhh....NOOOOOO!   The voices of reason!!!!

Yeah, I am just trying to be optimistic about the possibilities..

Knowing my luck, I'd get a box with 225 blisters of Dr. Diana.   Not that the figure is bad (double entendre....)  But, variety is a good thing..

Looking at the pic it looks like one new style Keeper, Elite Trooper HMG, Disciple Sergeant, a Necromutant, a Tiger Dragon and a Martian Banshee.

The other 219 could of course all be Dr Dianas. :)

Hello.

This is a strong case of buyer beware. No way I would touch that as it is. No way of knowing if the blisters have been resealed if they broke open. Or what is actually in the blisters. Sorry major PASS.

I agree. He sounds shady. I mean " SOLD "AS IS"...I HAVE NO LIST AS THEY ARE PACKED AND READY TO SHIP". Didnt you have them unpacked to take the picture that shows only maybe 10 of the 255+ blisters? Plus postage goes up $6 for 8 books and 10 figs??? Can you say SCAMALAMADINGDONG  ???

Depends on the weight of the package.  If it is over 50 lbs - which is a pretty safe bet for 225 blister packs, I can see $70 - 80 pretty easy.  The box might be heavier.  

However, he could also be padding his profits by tacking on "handling fees" behind that shipping cost.  

That is the frustrating part of this sale.  If we knew for sure what was in the box, we'd have a much better idea of what a "fair" shipping cost would be, as well as guaging if several people wanted to chip in and split the goods.  

Too many unknowns for my good sense, but that irrational gambler side of me still wants to pull the trigger and see what is really in the lot... Still, I think I'm gonna pass on this one.
