Epilogue – Week of January 20th


This was the first M.U.S.C.L.E. listing I saw on eBay. I was going to make him an AOTW combatant, but I’m getting bored of these listings. Pointing them out feels like playing the same emotionless note again and again.

How does one settle on $137.87?
Can’t complain about this $0.01 listing.
C’mon dude.
C’mon Canada.
Haven’t seen a FLAF in quite some time.
Or maybe I haven’t been paying attention.
What is more bizarre? The price or the lot assortment.
At least it’s starting at $0.99.
Think there will be shenanigans?

Has anyone else noticed the polls acting strange? Has anyone had trouble voting? I hope not. Because I can’t figure out why it is doing it on my end and that means I probably can’t fix it either. Fingers crossed.

Last week we gained another AOTW winner, which means we need four new combatants. Luckily (I guess) there is never a shortage of combatants.

The AOTW #1 is a completely pedestrian 28-pack with a $74.99 BIN. I don’t think we’ve ever seen a mint, unopened 28-pack sell for this much money.

I mentioned that I’m getting a bit fatigued with redundancy of terrible single figure listings. But the AOTW #2 felt like he was worth highlighting. He has a $19.99 BIN for a Dark Blue #34 figure (a Class C figure).

The AOTW #3 wasn’t exclusively picked because he is an ugly painted figure, but it did help. He was also selected because he has a $35 BIN – which is $6 more than the sellers other ugly figures.

Finally, the AOTW #4 is a long-time…let’s call it “contributor” to the website – most recently appearing in AW #277. She has a $120.60 BIN on a figure that fairly recently sold for $10.50.

I don’t know what made me curious, but I checked in on our champion. Apparently the $250 price tag for an empty box wasn’t bring the stampede of potential buyers that he expected.

Using his obvious shark-like business ability, the seller has dropped the price. It now features a $160 BIN.

I’m starting to believe eBay is almost exclusively filled with idiots that secretly believe they are business geniuses. They get enough sales that reinforce that delusion. I imagine that number is different for each person. That number would never be big enough to make me list stuff routinely.

In the real-world I bet these people have the business sense of a stone and certainly don’t work in a role that requires actual sales.

    Voting isn’t displayed, but I am so sickened by AOTW #4 that I need to vote in any way possible – so I hope that this comment can qualify as a vote for that vomit-inducing scrotum mildew

    Weird. I can’t figure out why the site is having these issues lately.

    And I officially added your vote. 🙂

    When I vote it says, “Failed To Verify Referrer”. It’s done this for a few weeks now.

    Damn it. Sorry. I don’t know why it’s doing this.
