    "EACH OF THESE ACCESSORIES WOULD SELL INDIVIDUALLY FOR OVER £5 EACH AND THERE ARE 20 ITEMS"

    Hence £190 BIN price.

    Brilliant mathematical and salesmanship skills there.

    Wait, perhaps I'm missing something here, but the seller did say that these are the accessories to complete Zarak/Scorponok. Are you guys upset because you thought the figure was included in the listing and there were no pictures of it?

    From the item description:



    Unless he quickly changed the description, I don't see what the fuss is about.

    Satomiblood, I'm not upset, just amazed at the price. I really can't see anyone paying that much for these parts, not unless the buyer is uber rich or uber desperate.

    The only thing maddening there is eBay's new, cluttered auction layout.


    If you don't want to pay the seller's ridiculous price, either make an offer or don't buy it.

    My bad. I didn't pay attention to the BIN when looking at the auction. I also don't have much of an idea of how much Scorponok/Zarak parts by themselves really are, which is why I wasn't thrown off by the numbers.

    Ebay:
    Why bring logic and common sense into this?

    I agree that I don't see the big deal. He's asking a very high price... but it is his choice to do so. Buying it is up to you.
