This one was posted on another forum, and I find it a bit ammusing.

Really??

:wacko:

Am I missing something?  $9.99 seems reasonable for what is there to me, the wheels, tyres, axles and guides would have to be worth that much.

Yeah, probably are, no argument there, then add in postage US$30.

Not sure about the value @ AU$56 play money tho.

Postage from the US has varied from very high to ridiculously stupid for a while, nothing unusual there.

I think they do it to just to see what they can get away with.

wow - the good thing about this thread is whilst my memory is fading I can look at this thread and realise I have been back into slot cars for around 12 years now.

That make me feel a bit better - when I look at all the cars I have I can rationalise it down now -..... that is only xxx cars per year that I have bought :)

Here's another eBay gem.

An SCX car originally listed at $50 plus postage didn't attract a single bid.

It has since been re-listed at ??? $60 plus postage!!!

I wouldn't be surprised if the bids now flow in.

The price on the commonwhore  is bullshit, if it sells i'm putting my MIB one up for sale straight away, might throw the shell falcon in as a bundle for $1000 quick sale  :)

He does say it's "rare"

I also love it when they say "new, unopened, mint in box" then open it up to take photos !
