    Wow. $50 for a $5 exclusive that many of us couldn't get. Awesome.

    With those quantities, I think we know which dealer the other thread was referencing. This will not end well.

    I want to spend Christmas with whoever pays $50 for Soundwave's twisty-tie. They could be my secret Santa, and we'll roast marshmallows and hundred dollar bills by the fire.

    Just wanted to take a minute to give a shout out to toyarena. They've come through for me on some hard to find items more than once.

    They're the best!

    FIFTY DOLLAR SHITTY HEADBAND.

    Nine hundred percent markup.

    Congratulations, this ******ed decision has just permanently lost you a customer. I have done business with you before. I will not do so anymore.

    Sad that those were all bought up by them and other dealers.

    But I will say they did cut me a good deal on a couple items I did buy so I had a pleasant experience with them otherwise.

    Ditto.

    I understand making a profit on items, but wow, this markup.

    I would like to know why this has been posted in News and Rumors when this is clearly an ad to sell items. Why hasn't a mod deleted this?

    Because they're a site sponsor, and they're allowed to do this.

    They are a sponsor, so their posts belong here -- TFSource puts its posts here every week.

    $50 is crazy until you realize they wouldn't price it as such if absolutely no one would buy it. I'm willing to bet some people bite on it.

    Whoever does it is a damn moron.

    I kind of feel the same for whoever paid $5 for that thing.

    and definitely the person who charged $5 for that thing.

    I probably wouldn't have paid $5 for one, so I won't complain about not being able to get one.

    Why would anyone pay $50 for a shitty headband that looks like a gusher fruit snack, when you can get a more accurate headband out of the twisty-tie on a $3 loaf of bread?

    I think their plan here is to post the $50 headband to try and trick people into thinking they'll be getting BOTH Soundwave and the headband for that price.

    It's horrible, but it's the only reason I can think of for them to price it as such.

    *takes Twist tie off my bread*

    $30! Exclusive G2 SG Soundwave Headband! Now with more Whole Grain!
