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 retarded decision has just permanently lost you a customer. I have done business with you before. I will not do so anymore.
salmonman78
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.
metrotitan
I probably wouldn't have paid $5 for one, so I won't complain about not being able to get one.
Sinnertwin
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?

No kidding.

That's absolute robbery.

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!

Wow. Scalp much?
RedAlert Rescue
$3.00 for a Loaf of bread is it hand delivered by a naked Princess Jasmin on a Magic Carpet or something ?
Agent Adam
That headband was not worth the 5 bucks I paid for it, it's not even worth a dollar. Wish I had looked at it first..

Wow, that headband listing is like a hate crime against obsessive-compulsive people.

I have nothing but pity for buyer and seller of that item.

(I don't even hate the headband, I'm keeping it for my collection, $5 was the upper limit of reasonable for it.)

So, anyone want to buy from these guys?
alfred p. sloan
I love the junkions - not parting w/$170 for them, though.
Hollywood Hoist
Well they did have to pay to ship it back to their store, I mean UPS charges an arm and a leg so they have to recoop their costs.... sarcasm aside $50 is ridiculous, $10-15 is understandable and expected.

I'd have no problem buying from these guys because they're a reputable outlet.

... I just, won't pay 50 bucks for an elastic band.

It's not even elastic.
Sioce
Very limited item. Supply and demand. toyarena is a store. Not your buddy. So on and so forth.

What cracks me up is you guys would still be whining if it was $15..lol

You don't want it? Don't buy it. Want to put a twisty tie on your botcon exclusive toy? Feel free. Toyarena will still sell out of headbands. But you'll have a twisty tie!! AND you can say you made a stand against the man!!

It will sell out, why? because it was from botcon and the nerds just can't get enough of botcon.

On a serious note, I heard most of the dealers had crappy sales at the con, so don't expect any deals on botcon stuff. ESPECIALLY something so severely limited.

Whats really going to crack me up is when Maiden Japan starts showing off his parts for the SG Junkions and the price triples... $170 will be a STEAL then! Look what the parts did to the price of mass release figures there for awhile.

I still maintain that there should have been enough headbands made for every set and they should have been handed out with the box sets at pick-up.

I'm gonna have to agree with Sioce. Not the most fun thing to say, but the only way to avoid sales like this is by making the trip to Botcon.

Exactly, I paid a bit extra for my set of toys, but the increase was still FAR cheaper than a plane ticket and hotel! A boy was good enough to hook me up!

I didn't get a headband though....

(PS sorry I missed meeting you TJ.)

Look like they might be risking wearing the paint of their "!" key.

I agree. But that thing was a rip off at any price, even $5.

Bear in mind. there are also folks who think adults like us that spend money on action figures are morons too. To each his own.

We are.

We're just slightly more dignified.

You tried to rip me off at WonderCon, your trying to rip me off now. Those prices are terrible. ToyArena lost respect from another customer.

wait I think I have some yellow twisty ties left-over from my electronics purchase.

just list it on ebay for a few dollars less than $50

someone with $$$$ to burn will snap it up.
barrelks
I have no problems with etailers/members/etc scooping up the attendee figures and bringing them to the public, and have had many great dealings with Toy Arena. At the same time, like most of you, that headband price is laughable. Everything else I am fine with, they went there, I didn't (though I made arrangements with a local in advance), and I am all for profit, but $50 for a headband that I am sure some collectors want to "complete" their set, when we know it was $5 at the Convention.
Composite Ghost
Good job, Toyarena. This thread is making you lose business instead of gaining it. But hey, there are two guys on your side. Too bad they aren't buying anything from you either.
Cal
But won't the headband become a valuable collector's item in years to come? It could be worth a fortune!
TrueNomadSkies
Yeah, and this is something you'd probably need to keep misb for that to even apply, too.
bradforj
You just know someone is going to repro the hell out of that headband.
CrockAlley
I just bought the Junkions from this site. The price is comparable with ebay, especially with the coupon code. I've been watched the ebay prices since BotCon, and the Junkions went up a bit yesterday. Time will tell if I'm a fool!
