Either it's an error in the listing (i.e. 48.00, not 4800.00) or else he's just doing it to drive traffic to his other listings, like the Commando armor set he's selling.

Well if it's a bin for $48.00 I'll buy it myself.


Yo I'm sittin on top of the- It's more than a feeling ain't it?
I be killin damn it, I'm illin and I'm illin'
Eh eh eh meet Mr. Popular, Go get your binoculars
And see Penthouse 3 where a ni**a be
They whisperin about us
I know you haters doubt us
How you count our money we ain't even finish countin'
Pardon me I must say, I'm kinda like a big deal...

The shipping cost does lend credibility to the insane idea though....

those are actually some pretty nice paintings. I like the Fett one... plus it's more affordable.

I hate to say it but it looks like that guy is genuinely wanting 4800.00 for those. Why else would the "make no payments till..." option be there? I'll admit they are superb but I guess some people just think there chit don't stink. Different strokes huh?

I'm not going to put in the link, because we do have youngsters here, but there is a Mark Hamil photo on ebay right now, in his birthday suit. Only shows back side, but  :puke: Please somebody tell me this is bogus.

I've seen that before. It's called "take a commtech stormtrooper and replace the cool Sandtrooper with this, but tell people that's how it was when I purchased it". I know there are a lot of idiots on ebay, but I think it's more the sellers now instead of the customers. If it was just the figure, I might be able to believe that the deco got missed. But the guy took all the accessories and replaced them too. That's just too much to believe that it's a factory error.

d**k.

Again...United We Find! Thanks guys for shedding some light on this subject. It puts a smile (or a snide lil grin) on my face everytime you guys help reveal the tricks of the trade that these basement dwellers use to get over on people. I had never seen anything like this, and I'm glad I posted it so y'all could help a fellow trooper not waste his money. Thanks!  :thumbup:

Holy crap again!!

:o

Although I guess for 20 it's not that bad, only $150 each shipped. Just looks like a lot of money at one time. And how would 1 seller get 20 Commander Cody busts anyway? Great job of controlling that one GG.
