LOL.

Then agan, it's NIB, and if it's the original release, that does boost collectibility value. Still overpriced IMHO. Probably go for a lower offer if at all.

I saw a gawdamn 310 going for ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS as a RARE original supersoaker. I had to send the poor bastard a message explaining just what a supersoaker was.

I saw a Hydroblitz on Amazon going for 120 buckaroos! Are the sellers crazy?!?!?!?

I also saw a Flash Flood go for $50 on eBay. And a Max-D 2000 go for $40.

This just proves that you have to watch out for high-priced, crudish, soakers. Watch out!!

I just saw something that makes me mad.

I had to post it. An Ozinator on eBay was priced at Buy it Now at $100 dollars and was classified as a very "rare and sought after collectors' item." This is just insane!

Nowadays, I see flash floods regularly going for $40, and hydroblitzes for even more! What people would pay twice the price to get the same gun a few months before water gun season even starts?

So many sellers label things as 'rare' that really aren't. GBA Pokemon games spring to mind. The games sold buttloads, they're not remotely rare.

Amazon sells a Arctic shock with a xp 215 and an max infusion backpack for $210.
That is not a typo.

Speaking of things that people think are rare,
I saw gamecubes going for $50 bucks and Nintendo 64s going for over $60! And that is with one controller and one game. Even gamestop would sell you those for cheaper prices!

I actually do, from this store that has all kinds of different foods called Hundai Super. Its great for things like canned bread and caffinated gum. And yes, I do mean actual canned bread, but it is more of a dessert, like a chocolate thing. But I almost want to buy a bottle of the soda. Almost. :p

I may be misremembering, but I think on eBay if an item fails to sell, relisting it is free the first time, and the relisting can have a changed price.

I'm not sure if this applies to Buy-It-Now. If so, then these ridiculous prices are explained - for the seller there's no risk, and potentially huge reward, in putting such a listing up. Ineed, if I were to sell my own blasters as buy-it-nows I'd probably do something similar ;-)
