    ok is it me or are these prices crazy? As it seems these HK and Singapore dealers think we in North America are retarded? Most of us know were they get there stuff! What is the point of buying stuff and putting the price so high it sits there for ages not selling? Here are some examples.

    Jizai Toys Transformers Perfect Wheelie Cyclonus Model
    US $3,999.00
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Jizai-Toys-Tran...oryZ4694QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    Pre Transformers Japanese MC-07 Gun Robo BROWNING MIB
    US $899.99
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Pre-Transformer...oryZ4694QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    I would love for them to put there stuff as a regular auction and see what they get? There is also a U.S seller with nice stuff but again what is with these prices? here is a couple examples

    MIB TARGETMATER SET!!!
    US $1,800.00
    http://cgi.ebay.com/MIB-TARGETMATER...oryZ4696QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    MI(S)B AFA Cased Browning
    US $1,200.00
    http://cgi.ebay.com/MI-S-B-AFA-Case...Z4696QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262

    C9+ MIB Original Japanese White Astrotrain

    http://cgi.ebay.com/C9-MIB-Original...Z4696QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262

    i would say the top set of auctions are alittle more crazy than mine(the ones on the bottom). also i'm pretty sure I put a best offer down for the auctions you listed. but hey man, your entitled to your opinion, no biggie on my end. i know a cuple of them are outta whack and need to be revised, but alot of them dont in my opinion, cause they will sell eventually.

    Well I hope you don't take offence, but I still think that they are priced a bit over market value. Sorry dude...

    the only ones that i would say that are super crazy are the perfect wheelie and cylonus, but i think that may be a typo.

    You think those are bad check this one out:

    Clone Predaking

    I turned this loser in because he was charging a BIN of $.99 with $84 shipping now look at this auction..he raised the BIN price and still has high shipping...

    What a loser..:Gouki:

    Which is small consolation for anyone browsing your auctions. You do realize that you're discouraging potential buyers by listing an insanely high BIN, right? You'd probably have better luck if you didn't list those 'crazy prices'.

    I don't get it. You know you're making a mistake, but you still insist upon it? Maybe you really are crazy. :crazy:

    listen, I can do whatever i want with my stuff and i dont really need to sell it either. I really dont need any input or any advice on this subject-I have been playing this game for a while now and when I have best offers on alot of my stuff, I really dont see your point at all. but yes, I admit it, I am crazy.

    If it's any consolation Damon, I'd buy that Browning in a heartbeat if I had the money.

    I've been following Malach Ra's auctions for a while... yes, sometimes it takes months... but like he said the items will sell eventually. That's the way he does business and believe it or not, it works...

    man...i want that battle gaia...i'd throw down that much money if i won the lottery...and also, just because most collectors arent made of money doesnt mean that there arent those that are...and when the right person comes along, and finds the item they need at a price most of us 'regular folk' would consider insane, they can drop the money like they're ordering off the dollar menu at McDonalds....

    its all relative to how much money you have...

    lots of these pieces are priced expensive but not too far from market value like backstop said.
