Seeing how you can get them for $100-$130 on eBay right now, I'll have to decline your generous offer. But hey, good luck with those.

You are much too kind Wook. I hate it when scalpers try to sweet talk the screw job they are "selling".

Scalpy McScrewjob-- " Hey, I normally overcharge this item by 100% the going market value. But ya know what, I like ya Bigdumbwookie. I sure does. How about I just gouge you for 75% over the market value. And don't say I never did ya any favors."

http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif --- if all you can contribute to this forum is scalping, please go away.

Well hey, it's not everyday someone will knock $25 off their asking price, for a complete STRANGER! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

By the way, if anyone is interested, I've got extras of the VOTC Han, Leia, and Obi Wan. Each is $75, but act now, and I'll take $10 off my price. That's ONLY $65. Get em before they hit eBay, because at that price, they are sure to fly out of here.

Heh heh! Actually I'm putting them on ebay with a BIN of $200 (w/free shipping) and starting the auctions off at $50 with no reserve. Whether they end at $50 or with BIN at $200 makes no difference to me. I made the offer to a fellow forum memeber for $25 less than my BIN price so I don't see what the problem is with that and certainly should not be considered scalping. I tell you what though since you were so kind and polite in your post Douglas I will be returning the kindness to the members of this forum by starting a thread to sell three of the Luke in stormtrooper gear busts for $75 shipped. By the members of this forum I mean everyone with the exception of you and the thread starter since to the two of you I'm just a scalper. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Good luck with that. But when you're prepared to tell me how buying 7 limited edition busts and selling them for much more than their retail (or secondary market) value, even when they are still going to be availble (WWChicago, Online), is not scalping, I would LOVE to hear your logic behind it. Just give me a couple of minutes though, I want to pop some popcorn for this blockbuster.

the scalping is when you don't let the chance to the true collector ....

WHY you bough 7 busts if you are not scalper ,
WHY you don't taked only one or two (is acceptable to trade for another bust)

200$ each http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif good luck I paid 80$ for mine shipping included

I guess deceit makes you more "trustworthy" than I am. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif From another thread by BigDumbWookie:




Read the front page about Code3 at WWC if you dont know what I'm talking about...

I'm assuming I'm still in the Code3 Collector's Guild (I bought the MF when it came out, and promptly sold it). If anyone wants the free gift, just let me know. As long as they dont require any confidential information, I'll give you my info. You'll have to find out what they want though. I'm not going to be there, so you'll have to be "me". Obviously if its just name and address and crap, it shouldnt be an issue...



Just so you know I have forwarded your thread and a quote from that post to Code 3.

Nice. Isn't it always the scalper who tries to defend himself by attacking others. I do not feel like wasting the time to read through the entire thread. However, did Bigdumbwookie immediately sell it for 1200 dollars(price x 4)? If not, he's still miles above you resting on a cloud... looking down at the pond scum that hits these conventions hoping to make a quick buck.

I could understand buying an extra, may 2. I could understand charging a little extra to cover expensives. But jacking the price up 4X and then acquiring SEVEN collectibles that were suppose to be 1 per guest, that's disgusting. Its greedy acts like that ... well, that force these conventions to use stupid raffle systems. Why don't you apologize to the people on this forum who couldn't get a bust. Because of "people" like you, they had to hope to win the raffle, not buy it from the vendor. Enjoy your profit. And if you will accept a little advice, use part of it and put a down-payment on a soul. You are sorely in need of one. Cheers http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Eh possibly, but I am still the one with 7 of the busts and you with ZERO. Bet you're pretty used to that number...you know...ZERO. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif BTW two are sold and one is pending. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

08-10-2004, 11:54 PM
And what makes you think I do not have one? My Luke looks just fine next to my Robert Englund Freddy and Clear Bust-ups (couldn't get the glow-in-the-darks though.. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif). I got into this to back up Wookie. Not that he needs it against low life scalpers, but I couldn't resist.

"Bet you're pretty used to that number...you know...ZERO. BTW two are sold and one is pending."

I will be happy to accept the few zeros in my life... as long as I can avoid your zeros -- ZERO morality, ZERO respect, ZERO integrity, ZERO scrubbles, and probably ZERO friends. Sell your little busts, and then go away. We all know you are in this for the money, not the love of Star Wars. Go away and look for more opportunies to screw over real fans.

P.S. As I said before, I would suggest your 3 victi... excuse me, buyers pay with PayPal so they have some form of protection when the busts get "lost in the mail."

P.S.S. 2 sold already? Cool, you can put that soul on layaway now. And you do not even have to be a big spender here. Pick up a used necrophiliac ****'s soul... it would still probably be an upgrade http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Edited-- I will not post another message as I am sure JoshEEE will not approve.. sorry Big J, its just the scum is overflowing these days. However, look at the sad attempt at an insult below by... I refuse to associate a quality show like Family Guy with him, lets just call him Scalpy McScrewjob. Now, I did sink to a low level when I insulted him. Sorry to anyone I offended... well, anyone except Scalpy. However, at least I tried to infuse a little witty banter into the insult.. you know, give it some zing. Scalpy just resorts to pre-teen " I know you are, but what I am" tripe. Heck, he even managed to get a "Your mama" joke in there too. I figured most of us gave that assinine humor up when we hit ****rty. Well, I think I finally understand scalpers. Its not their fault they do what they do. I use to think it was some conscious effort to wrong true collectors. I guess its not. They are just too stupid to realize what they are doing is wrong. Sorry for the contempt my "special" little friend. SIGH.... I would like to have a battle of wits with this guy, could someone please lend him some for about an hour?

P.S. Since you didn't bother to defend yourself on the zeros... I guess I hit a little close to home.

--BigDumbWookie, I apologize for littering you request with this argument. I still know we are both in the right about the attempt at scalping. However, I should have ignored him instead of feeding his childish behavior. Once again, I am sorry for disrupting your thread.

Yes, you did. Just keep that in mind the next time you try to insult someone that is better than you.





However, at least I tried to infuse a little witty banter into the insult.. you know, give it some zing.



I agree. You failed, but at least you tried. Don't be too hard on yourself though. Some people have it and some don't. Just concentrate on things you are good at like spelling perhaps.

I was prepaired to sell to BDW, but with his rotten attitude I thought it could go to someone more deserving.

"I was prepaired to sell to BDW, but with his rotten attitude I thought it could go to someone more deserving."

Let us review--

BDW- "I'm looking for one Willing to pay a reasonable amount over the cost of the item to -help- with the costs of attending a convention to get one."

Scalpy- "I have 7 that I'm about to put up on ebay for $200 ea. but will let one go to you for $175 shipped. PM if interested"

Hmm, it seems to me that he had every right to show a "rotten" attitude. You tried to scalp him. You can offer them now for whatever you like. If the buyers actually receive them, you have sold them for a fair price. But you have NO right claiming BDW wronged you in some way. You tried to hassle/scam him and he didn't take the bait. Scalping is unwanted here and you will get the same attitude from everyone else when you try it.

JoshEEE, I am not trying to go against your wishes. However, when he had the nerve to blame BDW in his OWN thread, I took exception to it. I am done playing his school yard games though. I will respect your wishes there.

Actually, I brought up a valid point. You resorted to name calling. JoshEEE, go ahead and lock this thread. BDW can start a new one and I, at least, will leave it alone.

LG, I am done with the name calling. I should have never lowered myself to that level to begin with. Hopefully, you have learned your lesson and will refrain from scalping in the future. If so, I have no problem with you. If you plan to continue scalping, I stick by my original statement, "just go away."

To my buddy's defense, he bought the MF at Code3's retail cost and later sold it to me well BELOW that cost. That to me is generous and makes him trustworthy enuff to purchase from him in the future. Him offering to help another collector out since he is still a Code3 Guild member with the FREE gift isnt wrong either.

08-11-2004, 08:00 AM

I'm not going to be there, so you'll have to be "me".

That sums it up. It all may be a moot point anyway since according to BigDummyWookie Code 3 has given him the green light to proceed although considering his deceitful nature I will take it with a grain of salt.

Is the 75 bucks so wrong? 50 for the item and not having to wait in line and buying a ticket at Wizard World, or pay for parking. 200 bucks is more than I would pay, but you don't see me blasting this guy. If you don't like his price don't buy. Why waste your time arguing the scalping point over and over again, it won't change anything.n Just my opinion. Peace

"To my buddy's defense, he bought the MF at Code3's retail cost and later sold it to me well BELOW that cost."

See Pedro, you are confusing LG. The concept of "helping" a fellow forum member out is foreign to him. Without making a profit, LG sees no reason to sell the bust. So, of course, he would see deceit there - "he cannot be doing it without some kind of scam.. " But BDW DID. He didn't want the item so he sold it for LESS than he paid. Its called integrity or gen·er·os·i·ty. Try it sometimes, it will make you a better person.

There is also no deceit in him allowing someone to use his identity to pick up a free item he doesn't want. Okay, I take that back. There might be a small bit of deceit. However, since both parties are agreeing to this ahead of time and the merchant doesn't care, it doesn't amount to much. NOW, the act of acquiring... oh, I don't know... SEVEN limited objects when the limit was ONE PER PERSON and then selling them to make a profit.... that's where the true deceit/ lack of morals lies. BDW's offer doesn't hurt anyone. The situation I mentioned above DOES hurt collectors. It's what is destroying this hobby. But any person who resorts to such things really doesn't care about the hobby so I guess its a moot point.

"Just so you know I have forwarded your thread and a quote from that post to Code 3."

Since you list yourself as a "teacher" in your bio (I really hope that's your attempt at humor), you know this is typical child behavior. If a child has gotten into trouble or is guilty over something they did, they go out of their way trying to get other people in trouble. It makes them feel better. Its a form of mental buffering to avoid those feelings of guilt........... Why is it that people who live in glass houses have a nasty habit of playing stick-ball? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

"DouglasMcc runs away with tail between his legs. LOL! "

Actually, that's not true. I have simply agreed to follow the wishes of the moderator -- would be nice if you would show them the same respect. However, that doesn't mean I cannot call you on your flawed logic and scalping ways. I just will not resort to ... oh, I don't know, quotes like this ... "No honey. You tried opening up a can-a-******** you couldn't close, and got the beat down." You only got in a few cheaps shots after you knew I had agreed to follow the ruling of the mods. However, if it makes you feel more important, feel free to call yourself whatever you want. Doesn't mean it's true, but as long as its just words, it won't hurt any one.

Douglas...you are correct. I can not fault you for responding to the troll. I asked for the flaming to stop....and he had to throw a few more petty little shots in. You were responding with your hands tied behind your back because you were just trying to do what I asked.....which is really decent of you.

For directly going against what I said....our friendly neighborhood Bust salesman will be enjoying a 7 day suspension from Rebelscum.

BDW...I'll close this post, and you can create another one that hopefully won't get taken off topic with bickering.
