    Ok so as stated in my other thread I'm looking for a Macross figure. I really only want one as though I love Macross, I dont love it enough to pick up a whole bunch (like a certain someone I know). Anyway I come across is auction as I really want the right one:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=011&item=320011821085&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEBI%3AIT&rd=1

    Anyway I throw in a few bid's and the auction goes out of the range I'm looking to spend, ok whatever, I move on. But then out of know were the current high bidder then has the BRASS to email me this little diddy:

    "Someone just told me over the internet that the VF-1J Max will be reissued next year. Just thought I would let you know."

    Ok WTF!!! I know we all hate getting prices on eBay jacked up as were all looking to get a good deal but comon! To email a guy your bidding against this type of BS!? That's just something you dont do.

    This type of tomfoolery should make me mad but honestly I find it kinda funny, but honestly what makes him think I'll be at all amused by this.

    Now the big question is do I bid more or possibly even go for a win just out of pure spite :lol

    Errr... I don't see anything wrong with this. He's letting you know that will have the chance to buy the same figure again a bit later.

    what an ass, you should outbid the sucker for kicks and for the win possibly, but if it is being released again just wait and as the ING guy says "save your money"

    As far as I know this is not the Max being reissued. That one is the all white w/ blue stripes.

    Anyone know what a Mirya goes for now a days?

    Ahhh, I thought he emailed you after the end of the auction. If there is no reissue planned, then yeah, he's an ass.

    Yeah! Like RW keeps jacking up my Alt! Bahahahahaaa

    Just reply with "thanks" , (while upping your bid hehe)

    That way there will be no more emails exchanged and time spent wasted on him would be kept to a minimum.

    Im not into pissing other people off online, they could be some kind of wierdo hacker and I'd be very pissed if a turd like that screwed my online routines up. Forcing me to stoop BELOW his level to get any kind of vengeful satisfaction.

    You're Swca from TFW, your time is to valuable for that guy :thumb

    Yeah, that's very comforting knowing there's a possibility that can happen to someone's account...

    I had a fool on ebay that email me when he outbided me on a Defensor at the last possible minute. All he said was "I outbid you hahahahah". Funny thing is I won a Defensor cheaper a few weeks later.

    No kidding, I was thinking the same thing.

    Then again, if I worked for ebay, I don't know that I'd risk my job for something like this...

    Sounds like a real classy guy. Just another reason why I hate e-bay.

    Wonder if he would do the same thing in a fine art auction.

    'Hey Psst...You bidding on the auction?.. I totally know some art dealer that found another Picasso that will be coming out this week, I swear.'
