Here is an auction for just the box:

Is there something special about the box? I mean you can get a statue *and* box for arond $250.

People are obviously not reading the description. Pathetic, really.

Man, someone is gonna be super pissed when all they get is the box! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

Oh dear. I remember years ago there was a PS2 box that went for hundreds. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I remember seeing a Xbox 360 box sell for hundreds also.

Stupid people need to go to prison...if you can't figure out it's just a box, then why buy it...

It says its a box. People are stupid. Unless the box they used to have was destroyed and maybe they really want one to replace it.

02-05-2006, 06:47 PM
I take it back people, are just stupid.

Well, it's over $100 with two days to go. You'd think the bidder would just cough up another $100 and he'd get a statue, a certificate and some styrofoam packing along with the box. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

coming from brians toys it doesnt suprise me. the are the biggest rip off sellers out there.

Usually I don't care but I wasn't in the mood to see someone else get fleeced by Brian's Toys - so I sent the current high bidder a message letting them know they are buying a box only. It's things like that which make me wonder if Brian's Toys REALLY didn't know they were selling bootleg bustups. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

Let us know what the current seller thought he was bidding on. I'm curious.

I think they'll be some disappointed people on this auction or they're just crazy enough to want a empty box.

One day left will there be any no pays or bid retractions? LOL http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Why are you guys assuming that the bidders don't know what they're bidding on? The auction clearly states: "This auction is for the box only. A Clone Trooper is not included." Seems pretty clear to me.
And the opening bid was only $9.99. It's not like the seller started it at $99.99, so I'm not sure how Brian's Toys is ripping anyone off, in this case. Like someone else mentioned, maybe someone has the statue and really wants the box because their box got damaged.
Hmm... maybe I'll list all my Gentle Giant mini-bust boxes on Ebay and see what I can get for them. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Responded with "Thanks for the info" and nothing more. Oh well.

Yup it's 15.50 now glad someone got some common sense all of a sudden.

I don't really see why this is a big deal. I remember a month or so ago Mike at Razor's Edge was selling a bunch of Attakus from an "Estate Sale" and the statues came with everything except the box. I guess the original owner did not keep them. Anyways, I almost bought one of those, but I was bummed there was no box. So in a situation like this, it is really cool for someone who needs the box. I just hope Brian's Toys did not screw someone out of the box for their statue.

Because when they were been warned, they retracted their bids. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

good point!!

02-07-2006, 04:38 PM
I can understand when it is only one bid retraction because the guy does not understand English, but WOW! This thing is still going up! Maybe I should start selling all of my boxes. Come to think of it, I really don't need them! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Time to go clean out the closet and put some boxes on ebay! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
