lol this was good!
Willing to pay cost ($25.00) plus shipping and i'll throw in an extra $10.00 for your trouble.
Oh, that doesn't sound good? Then why should you expect any different when your asking to buy my Strobo? Don't these all cost the same amount of money when they are put up for sale? Why are people complaining about the costs of Strobo in the secondary market? Its not fair unless your willing to offer me the same deal for Teela, Fisto, Shadow Weaver, Wundar, etc.. From now on everyone should sell all their hard to find figures for cost plus shipping plus $10.00 for the others troubles.
And no, i'm not looking for Teela... Thanks for looking
lol this was good!
A deep and true thought, i'm with you my friend!
Thank you so much to my partners of He-Man.org for helping me to get MOTUC figures:
My Sell/Buy/Trade Feedback http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...eedback-Thread
The sad part is that I'd be willing to do exactly that, but I end up having to gouge people on hard to find figures so that I can afford to get the ones I need that are costing over $100.00.
Like you and I talking about in person. This is exactly what happens. A lot of people expect to get a Strobo or some other rare figure at cost plus shipping, but when the roles are reversed the same person will only sell the rare figure they have for ebay prices...makes no sense.
I wonder if we're all talking about the same orger. The certain member I pm'd wants top ebay dollar for his/her goods, but wants me to cough up my Strobo for $10 over cost. I got this argument- "He won't be worth that much by Black Friday." Well then, sit tight and wait until Black Friday. In the meantime, the rules of supply and demand are in place. If they weren't, I'd have a Whiplash by now.
We very well might be...when we have something they want its only worth cost, but when they have something we want its worth ebay prices.
Exactly what i'm talking about Brock. As long as you keep charging me 130.00 for Fisto, then i'll charge current market price for Strobo But i'd gladly do an even trade since they both cost $25.00 when they were released
How did figures like Fisto, Teela, Sorceress get to be so expensive in the first place? It's discouraging for someone like myself who's now getting into Motuc. There's no way a single figure is worth $150. Price gouging to the max. Just because something is going for a certain price on ebay/amazon, doesn't mean it's the price everyone has to pay especially on these forums.
On the bright side this is a great thread. It reminds us all that reselling takes a certain maturity and patience. Especially if you are trying to avoid the costs of selling on an auction site... While simutaniously maintaining the benefit of inflated auction prices. A lesson truely worthy of He-Man... Well maybe Teela and Orko? Make sure you tune in next time.
What exactly is the point of this thread? Is it to say, "Hmm, I told you" to this alleged member and others complaining about the high prices of Strobo and wanting it at cost or slightly above given that it will be more readily available in the near future? We have enough complaints as it is, some issues deserving of complaints and others not so much. This forum is supposed to be for actual transactions. In this instance, if someone doesn't like what people are offering Strobo for monetary wise or trade wise, then fine, move on. And the opposite holds true as well, if some people are annoyed or upset that people are wanting this figure for too little in their estimation, then move on. If discusssions between parties need to continue, they can be continued via PM, can't they? After all, what's a complaining thread about complainers really going to accomplish?
It's a long established rule that people should not be harassed for whatever they choose to sell/trade their items for. Let's not go down that road again, guys .
