    It's not "up for bid" if you only have the fucking thing listed as BIN. Christ.

    Yeah, that sucks. We've got out local scalper up here, goes by canofrage on Ebay. I think we've nearly booted him out of the TF scalping though. Too many of us local collectors working together.

    What an asshole, $103.33 for each, PLUS shipping, but they're not even individual, as a fucking lot. Jesus Christ I hate people.

    its bad enough he bought the whole effin case but he isn't even breaking them up to sell so 3 people have a shot at him.

    I thank god that I don't have any local scalpers, just a crap load of collectors lol.

    Me and a few have gone on TF hunts together before, if we ever saw a scalper he'd probably get an epic beat down.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there were scalpers in my area (it is SoCal afterall, and Frank & Sons is nearby), I just don't know any...yet.

    I didn't even notice he used the picture from the TFW2005 boards! That's such a slap in the face.

    He probably is reading this thread...we used to have a problem with scalpers using our local sightings boards to find toys. We nipped that in the bud pretty fast though. Most of us either IM or text each other where the toys are first and make sure that we have what we want before we post specifics on the boards.

    We also have a very good system in place to pick up toys for each other if someone is stuck at work, etc and can't get there before something would be scalped or sold out.

    It's unfortunate that scalpers use these very boards against us.

    And if you are reading this thread Mr Scapler...realize that Karma is a bitch and what you put out into the world come back to you ten fold. Remember that when your car breaks down next week :lol

    If I see an exclusive in TRU now, I just buy them all and sell them at cost to fellow board members/friends. If I don't sell any to my friends/collectors, I'll just donate them to Toys for Tots or something. I'd rather lose money than have these fuckers make a 300% mark up on TFA Rodimus.

    Because random threats of bodily harm work so well on the Internet.

    Shit likely comes from the Old English verb scītan, which itself likely comes from Proto-Germanic *skit-.

    Unless you were referring to Retard (which comes after your apology). That comes from the Latin retardāre which means to delay or make slow.

    whenever I see a scalper with carts full and he happens to have something I want in it and there are obviously none left on the shelf I'll actually just grab them out of his cart, store management usually laughs at them if they try and complain
