Getcomics is where I dl'd my gijoe comics from last year when I had same hankering ✌️
id buy it too, but he didnt appear in the show so its sadly unlikely. if they did make one, perhaps it would be a toyetic redeco with the bits of black on the sides of the car mode.
If you didn't buy him I probably would have haha, still thinking of tracking one down to headmasterise
This took far too long to make
Can I get an invite to your special world please? The one where businesses apparently work in reverse? Being somehow obligated to sell goods at less then what they purchased them for.
To get them in my hands cost me just shy of £46 a piece including shipping,vat and import fees. Last business I worked for that % mark up is essentially a loss leader.
I'm not exactly using bots to corner all the ps5s before Christmas here.
you can sell your things for whatever you want, but if you try to do so on sites where people generally arent selling stuff to make a profit, you can expect to get a bit ripped for it, no?

Personally that big axe makes me think of some kind of cyber demon from a sci fi soulsborne game
They should do that*
*I've never played any of the games
so they cost £46 and you want £120? (muinus postage/fees) that's at least a 100% mark up.
Though there's no reason not to be able to list things for that.
Just might not shift before competition comes along.
And people will regard you rightly or wrongly as a scalper.
You're not a company you're a dude.
Yeah, probably true. Might have to get another Earthrise one then.....
if you payed £46 for each, and want to make a profit, surely £60-£70 would be a more reasonable price, no? selling each Bluestreak for nearly triple the price you paid seems a bit extreme, i cant imagine Smyths or even specialised TF retailers doing that.
Well poundland, at least when everything was a pound, worked on the principal of everything they bought cost 33p and they sold it for a pound, but then that includes many many overheads, locations, staff, transport, vat and other taxes.
to be fair i believe its siege AND er Bluestreak for £140 (£120+10 on ebay) so not AS bad, but still bad
Well there you go, If you'd said it was two £46 figures for £120 I'd say that's a reasonable mark up. Not that I've been worried about goign overboard, back in 2013 I was buying up Amazon Exclusives for £46 and selling them for £100. But I was selling on ebay. I think at that time people hadn't realised amazon.com shipped to the uk.
Buying several cases of Wave 1 of Prime Beast Hunters put me off importing and trading.
Those things almost all sold at a loss.
Really hope they do a better version, guess he could appear in Kingdom.
thats a wee bit more reasonable, yeah. especially if you'd be paying similar on evilbay.
shops are justified for marking things up, and to an extent, felonii is too as he did pay quite a lot for them to begin with. but that facebook group was mostly intended for helping other fans rather than making a profit, so the situation is rather difficult.
£120 for two hard to get figures is reasonable with the context that the seller paid £46 for each one, but without that context it would be ridiculous.
I think its more the fact that if someone wanted them they would cost £75 shipped from Amazon... £120+ is more than a little more, especially considering the audience you are selling to. But if someone wants to pay that they can...
Looks like ID are expanding to ZOIDS as well as "new ranges" - Tie your wallet hands to the mast, Lads!!!
