If I can find the listing I will post it, but I checked out a mailer obiwan spirit figure for 10,000. Buy it now. It's a 5 dollar figure.

Absolute pure insanity! I took some screen grabs, because that won't last forever. I'll try to get them posted soon, so that can be seen by everyone now and in the future!

It comes with a tracking number. So. No worries there.

It always makes me laugh to see something listed as "rare" or "hard to find" on a site like eBay/Craigslist when there are 10 more listed on the same page.

My all time favorite was that Christmas where Zhu Zhu Pets were *the* hot toy. People would walk into TRU and just scrape a shelf full into their carts. Then there would be dozens and dozens of them on Craigslist and I'd watch as Christmas passed and they were still there...and they'd get cheaper...and cheaper...and cheaper...then finally people were selling whole lots for $20-30. Pure comedy gold.

We can have a shady crook and all things of new items will be found by better people.

Can we add Facebook Marketplace to this as well? Scrolling through for local "Star Wars" results is almost always disappointing in my area. But I did find this little gem for the killer deal of only $20.


And here's a pic of the item, in case the link is removed.

Haha, I can see the text now "I'll settle for $15, but that's my rock, gotta be today and cash is king."

Anytime I see a picture like that where the item is on a clearly unmade bed, it just skeeves me out. I picture someone with a lot of knives from Bud K on his dresser and maybe a throw blanket of a skull with a snake or maybe a dragon hanging like a tapestry.

This is from Kijiji. It’s like Craigslist, but it’s Canadian. He started at $1000, then $500 and now the lower, but equally ridiculous, figure of $200.

Blowing the dust off this one because this is just too funny not to share. I think we all agree the price for a complete, modern Big Millennium Falcon can go for quite a bit.

But this one, "missing some parts" (basically EVERYTHING that can come off) is a total bargain at only $50!

$50 seems reasonable if you can find the missing covers?

The covers can go for $15-$30 each, depending on the size. Cockpit cover, you're looking at $50-75.

If that's ALL you want to find and make it a wall hanger or something, you're still putting at least $120 into something you've already dropped $50 on.

Well, it is an "Expensive toy new." according to the description.

I love how the first photo (and thumbnail) photo show the bottom of the ship so, at a quick glance, it doesn't look like it's missing too many parts.
