    Good plan. He gets to go to the show for free and the winning bidder gets all the exclusives for a reasonable price. Win/win.

    Been up for atleast a week. Seems odd, is he buying loads of primus packages then? If so, are you really allowed to do that?...

    It would not be such a big deal if he waited at least till the week of the con but this is a little shady.

    I've been seeing auctions for the set pretty much since the day after the registration form went up.
    I dunno if it's been the same guy all along, but it's beyond stupid either way. Why pay this jackass $350 when you can still order the non-attendee set for $265/$315?

    He's banking on the hopes that some people don't know about the non-attendee packages. As for MC to shut down the auction, he's not doing anything illegal. He has every right to buy the set and then resell it. And I think he is using different people to buy the sets. Like have his brother buy a set and his dad, etc etc. I don't think MC allows more than one person to buy a boxed set and a loose set but you can have your entire family buy a set each. It's shady but no more shady than any other scalper buying stuff and jacking up the price on ebay.
