    was just on BBTS and saw these Exclusive Mech tech weapons (on their own) for 70 bucks a pop ? WTH is that they're just the same tech as deluxe just chromed or gold plated (which will fade in time)


    who the hell will buy these ?

    They're lucky draw premium pieces. Very limited run, Japanese only items. They're the kind of things that LD collectors would pick up.

    Summary:

    Plenty of people will buy it. Just because its too rich for your blood, some of us here don't have money issues.


    Definition in context: "too rich for your blood" does not mean you don't have 70$ to shell out. It means you don't have 70$ to shell out for such an accessories.

    They aren't THAT limited. and they are campaign items, not LDs. The number is 700 or 7000 I forget. They were store giveaways. The one I have I got on Ebay for 99 cents. ;)
