That feeling.......


Recommended Posts

That feeling when you find the kit you're after that isn't in stock anywhere (or so it seems) and at a sensible price too! Happy days!!! 

 

I have been scouring the tinterweb for a Bandai Slave 1 (Boba version). Many places are out of stock and have no idea what's coming when.

 

Then there's RipoffBay which shows a few but at either extortionate prices (£120......erm no!) or from Japan and still quite pricey and  could get hit with import charges (maybe).

 

Amazing what a few phone calls to little model shops can do. I feel like the kid in the Yellow Pages advert with the Hornby signal box....."Great!....they've got one, Mum!"

RipoffBay? Seriously? The last time I checked, sellers are free to ask any price they like, and buyers are free not to pay it. There’s no obligation to give you a ‘deal’, just because you want something.

There's one available in Canada but no idea on shipping to the UK.

I order from them all the time but their warehouse is only an hour away from me.

I found one here in the UK, that was the point of my post. I found one in a small model shop about 100 miles from me by ringing around. Got it for RRP despite sellers wanting 3 or 4 times that on eBay.

 

Years ago there was a TV advert for Yellow Pages directory with a kid ringing round model shops to find a signal box for a train set......and I felt the excitement he showed back in the 80's (whenever the advert was shown). 

 

Thanks though

The response from Asmodai was perfectly reasonable and correct.

There is no "rip off" on ebay except perhaps in the mind of the potential customers who,  are under no compulsion to buy and can therefore avoid being "ripped off".

I agree that a lot of prices are totally silly so, I just move on!

Not difficult.
