    Fuck chleosis and their shill bidding.
    Whoever picked both up, let me know who sent it so I can write them and tell them to fuck off.

    so let me get this straight-- I can pay about 260usd for some toys and break even + 1100usd after holding on to them for a month or so?

    flipping has it's rewards.

    I need a new drumset too.

    Joe, hey how could you tell that they were shill bidding? not that I don't believe you--but how'd you pick up on it?

    Check the bid history for the GID.
    d***u (181) was going against me.
    That's fine, maybe we were in a bidding war.
    Now check the DB.
    Same guy, kept upping his bid by a little.

    That was just insane. Did the shill bidder end up with them?

    Seems like the shill won the DB.
    Greedy as mofo.
    Bet he's on the board too.

    Sometimes I feel like I need to flip shit just to get enough money to afford stuff being flipped. :evil:

    Sorry about that, Joe. I had seen them earlier while searching for other things due to the title name splattering that happens. It was already kinda crazy, but I really hate the blocking out of bidder ids. Makes it harder to sniff out the shills. Used to be much easier to keep tabs on shenanigans. I also hate it when sellers put a smart ass remark instead of a location.

    So the guy didn't even really sell the DB, he just shilled it up and didn't make any money? LOL, What a douche! Well now if he re-lists it we'll know his bullshit game, hopefully it wards more people away from bidding and makes him less cash.

    A bit on the same note, I hate it when a seller has something at a dumb-ass price and no one jumps than they just keep re-listing it, like WE DON'T GET WHAT A DEAL THAT IS, vs. just dropping the price (I'm looking at you Mandarake and YJA sellers.)

    I've been tempted to buy those damn gargamel that pop up on the real head search just so I don't have to look at them anymore. :x

    Those gargamel minis that have been listed at 14000 yen forever? So friggin annoying! Same with that 250000 yen Painted Lucky Bag Matango seller. Message to you douchebag: No ONE EVER is going to BUY IT. Not EVER. Unless the yen suddenly drops to 1 cent per dollar, save us all the annoyance of looking at your stupid auction.

    Sorry to hear about the Mother Joe. If there is any silver lining in this it's that it's dropped from 1000 to 750 to just above 600 now. Hopefully below 500 soon....

    Glad to see mostly everyone else noticed the shill bidding. I would have loved the drunk boy, but 600+ just isn't realistic. Did the mother actually go to a real bidder?

    Part of the reason people list stuff a bajillion times at the same price on YJA is because its free to list, you just pay 5% if the item sells.

    That's bullshit...still can't believe the drunk boy or even the maza is pulling in that kind of money already...I know, I shouldn't be surprised anymore. What is a more realistic price range for that golden boy boogie? Or is it actually that expensive now?

    Yeah I hate those never-ending YJA auctions...I have also contemplated buying stuff just not to see them anymore. I thought I read on YJA though that if an auction ends with no bids, the seller can just have it relist itself for free...kind of a crazy (and annoying) policy IMO. edit: just saw this was mentioned...anyway I'm sure if the ebay merger thing completely happens, they will be quick to do away with this policy.

    Fucking disgraceful-

    Glad the Drunk boy went to himself, that means he is out of pocket for the price of the auction. Would be good to leave it at that and when it re-lists no one bid on it, but that just not gonna happen.

    If he sends anyone second chance offers you should tell him to go and fuck himself.

    What was the final price on the Mother? last I saw was $555.

    617 for the mother and 660 for drunk boy. Honestly I think even the rarest of newer kaiju (I know nothing of vintage runs so I wont go there) should not be above the 200-250 range. I know this will never happen due to supply and demand though. Sad....there will always be a flipper and someone willing to pay for it.

    I think the thing about flipping is it only works on the newer guys/ guys less serious about the hobby. I mean I dont think I know any board members that regularly pay the flipper, or if they do they would never admit it. Dont get me wrong, I have paid over the odd somtimes, but thats how you learn your lesson.

    I want a Mazza, and I know the production run isnt ridiculously small, and see pleanty of them for sale and I know their a flippers favorite, so I wait for the hype to go.

    Lots of people who go to the flippers are the guys who have to have the new hot toy and get caught up in the hype ( like I said though, it happens to us all) but if you just wait it out you see what the price settles at and also you can tell if you still really want it.

    I mean buying one now, your definatly not gonna score it cheaper! If eveyone waited a bit flippers wouldnt have a business. I mean obviously this doesnt apply to all toys/ editions, but with somthing like the Mother it definatly does.

    Do we have any maths genius's on the board that could take out the shill bid and come up woth a rough estimate of the price the Maza could have sold for without the Shill bids? $400? $300?

    Definatly not the 1k they were changing hands for a month or so ago!
