Early solid dome R2D2 - Why so expensive?

Postby TheJabbaWookie » Fri Dec 15, 2017 9:18 pm

A quick question. This early solid dome sold for over £400. Can anyone tell me why so expensive?

I blame Facebook. Otherwise not sure, I got mine for £2.80 in 2008. C9

Why so expensive? Simple; the buyer was an idiot.

Whoa!

I was watching this item myself. I unwatched it at £92 when I thought THAT price was a bit over the top.

I just picked one up in pretty much exactly the same condition for £60 including postage. I felt I had overpaid a bit for that to be honest.

This got relisted a few days ago apparently because the winner 'couldn't raise the funds', the seller is still trying to sell it for the same price. :lol:

Love the description too, "in fairness to all the other bidders i'm listing him on a buy it now with offers"

.... fair?? :?

I guess the next highest bidder at 400 quid didn't want it either :shock:

Have you seen his other loose listings, riddled with repo crap accessories!
His MOCs are nice, but well expensive! :?

couldn't raise the funds


Can anyone do this on ebay if they feel they want a cheap dirty way out of a bidding war?
I was watching this one too in wonder as I thought my starwarstracker had picked up a slight flutter.
