Okay, Okay, what do you want me to do now? Pull the auction out and close it now? That would be stupid because I would waste my listing fee. We just have to ride it out till the end. I knew it was a stupid and extremely unlikely to ever have one bid on it, but it's posted, and I am not taking it down to lose the posting fee.

You can all keep saying it's stupid! I know that. It was meant just to take a chance at.

K?

as long as the auction is running you can edit it and take the price down to a more moderate price
say 600 and a buy now for 900
because really thats al you are going to get for them even if they are misb they are just reissues who are stil being mass produced by takara and hasbro
and they are stil used goods
600 to 900 expecting anything more is pure folly
 

and if you cut your self you wil think you are happy

come as you are as you were as i want you to be come doused in mud soaked in bleach come as a friend as a known enemy

You can make up your own mind can't you? What does it matter what any of us think? If you're fine being out $13 on the chance, go for it, but you'll probably end up trying to sell them individually later.

Coco, I want you to think very seriously about what Katt just said- look at it this way- if you sell them for 700, you will still be making a profit.
Also, one other thing I would like to point out- have you thought about the person on the other end of this deal? Don't you feel just the slightest bit morally unjust for charging such an outrageous price, and in the slim chance, getting it? Don't get me wrong, I'm all for profit, being a Ferrengi and all, but I can tell you one thing: my conscience would bother me a great deal just knowing that I was trying to cheat someone, let alone the possibility of actually doing it.

okay, I am not just selling the Takara ones. So the 600 is irrevelent.

I will just see if it goes of not. that's all.

I just tried to change the price to about 1650.00, however, it doesn't let me change the price. It lets me change everything else, but the price.

Sir Auros makes a valid point, and what I have been trying to tell everyone.

So if you don't want to pay, don't bid.



I just thought it would be fun if you would want to watch it. I got a lot of hits, probably everyone of them is laughing and getting a huge kick out of it.

yes sir auros makes an extremley valid point
you are your own person and you make your own decisions if you dont do that any more you are not your own person any more
but you made this thread and asked about our opinions
and thats what you are getting our opinion sif you like them or not
and its up to you what to do with them
as i said beforte its doubtfull you wil sell them at all at this price ( not impossible but very doubtfull )
if you are bent on selling them you are better of either lowering the price
or better yet selling them individually that wil take longer but they will sell better because a buyer is not looking bug eyed at a 2k price tag

again this is not telling you what to do this is an advice and its up to you to take it or leave
and if you leave it ? wel fine
 

and if you cut your self you wil think you are happy

come as you are as you were as i want you to be come doused in mud soaked in bleach come as a friend as a known enemy

I definitely understand that it's all your opinions, and I welcome them. Thank you for making this topic what it is.

if they will not sell in this auction, then I won't make another one and try selling them individually. I will just keep them. Again, I love transformers. They are the best.

All of us who visit these boards are very special people. You all care about transformers, and each individual makes transformers what they are today.

Peace.

And, after this auction is over, I will be relieved. Maybe we can get back to normalcy in the transformer world.

I am eagerly awaiting my pre-orders on Hound, Stepper, and Insecticons.

I don't think that the majority of the "Transformers World" has ever left it.

I really don't see the auction going, coco.

You charge too much, and even if somebody pays that and the 70 dollars fee for shipping and handing, you still "force" them to buy insurance, which is 50 dollars!

Some people would be interested in Unicron, the Alternators, or some of the reissues, but individualy, not all of them together. For example, if you had Sideswipe for a 50 dollars tagging with his re-issue, then see how many people that would attract.

I think the thread should stay open at least until the auction ends, if nothing else it'll give Coco chance to gloat if he does shift it...

This is not a told you so thread.

If a miracle befalls upon me, and I sell it, then I will be happy, however, I will never say I told you so.

I have said 100 Times I doubt it will see. I just want to see what happens.

When it doesn't sell, then I will be happy it's over.

Again, I don't expect it at all.

I will never gloat one way or the other about anything.
