    WANT WANT WANT WANT

    Alas I do not have the resources for it.

    Ah well, it'll be cheaper if I just wait for the official release. I remember going crazy over wanting to grab movie test shots (damn those things got expensive)..but I waited and got all I wanted (and more) for less than if I had not waited.

    Easy- Someone has a friend overseas in the factory (or works there themselves) and grabs one of the pieces they make while calibrating the machines for the production run. Or, someone works for Hasbro and steals a demo piece meant as a sample for retail buyers. Or, someone in purchasing for a retail chain sells their sample.

    I'm completely guessing of course, but I'm absolutely positive that's how those things end up on ebay.

    No. Looks like someone bought it off Ebay and that the seller ended the auction early. :)
