Yeap, that's my eBay listing.

Not that I have to explain myself to anyone cuz I don't see what I'm doing is anything wrong. Just because someone is selling something for a certain amount above retail isn't a bad thing or anything.

Nobody knows how much I bought it for and knows why I'm selling it but if you must know, I did some panic buying after I heard news about the First Edition cancellation and because of that, I had to pay a premium for everything.

And these are the prices I paid for them.

And I'm selling them because just a matter of weeks later, they show news of the RID line which is pretty much the same product but cheaper. So obviously I'm kicking myself for the panic buying.

So before anyone decides to judge, its good to understand the rest of the story but none of that bothers me because at the end of the day, as long as I get the figures I want, I can do whatever I want with them including change my mind about keeping them. The only rule I have about selling things is that I make my money back, that's it. If it makes more, that's awesome......more money to spend on toys.

Deluxe Leadfoot was never made available North American shores and the only way to get him was to pay a premium for it from Asian sellers. If he had been made available to North America, he would've retailed for $14.99. I'm not about to take a huge loss just to satisfy the collecting community's opinion about selling something above retail.

Anyways, this was meant as a informative post. Nothing personal. I just find it semi-annoying when people yell SCALPER ALERT the moment they see something like this.

Bottom line, I paid a premium cuz I was late on getting them at retail. If this is what you call scalping then, then yes I'm scalping my own toys to break even.
