Epilogue – Week of January 27th

What the hell?

I don’t know if everybody heard the answer to this question, “Did anyone buy that 4-pack?

Here’s the answer:

I bought this four pack, I was super excited I was getting it for such a low price. My excitement quickly faded when I received it only to realize that it was simply a four pack that had been torn open from the bottom and a black cut out slipped in behind the figures. It was not even cut out evenly and looked like a 10 year old did it. There was a big whole in the bottom of the plastic where the fifth figure was added. I knew it was most Almost certain that it was not legit but I had to buy it just in case.

A sad ending, but we’ve all been there before.

I briefly shared my feelings about this train-wreck. When I saw this, my reaction was, “Of course.” This is the least surprising and most understandable thing I have read in a longtime. I plan on writing a post in the future called, “Water is wet.”

It’s going to be pretty good.

In the meantime, let’s see how much eBay I can withstand.
The first listing I see.

I have a new hypothesis. The next Non-Poster figure will be purchased for about $1. We keep seeing sellers listing their terrible lots with price tags that seem to average about $1-per figure. With all these new sellers, isn’t it a matter of time before some dope lists a complete SHA in a $1-per figure lot?

It feels inevitable based on the current trends. What do you guys think?

No complaints. It started at $0.99.
Are you fucking kidding me?
“They are an excellent addition to any upscale collection and a wise investment.” What a fucking stupid asshole.
“Look carefully at each figure please.” Ok, now what?
– Not going to make a sale at this price or that price.
Like the color, but still hate the price. So does everybody else.
Started high, but people will still chase this 4-pack.
Three bids?
How frustrated would you be trying to collect 1,000,000 of these things?

Last week we crowned our fourth AOTW winner, which means it is time for the winners to face-off. But how did they get here?

The AOTW Winner #1 easily beat out their challengers. The AOTW Winner #2 was in a much closer battle. The winner certainly deserves a hand for besting its challengers.

Like the first winner, the AOTW Winner #3 destroyed its competition. Finally, the AOTW Winner #4 used her long-time “experience” to beat the competition by placing a $120.60 BIN on a figure that fairly recently sold for $10.50.

I can’t help myself. I had to check again. Last week the price for an EMPTY BOX was $160. This week it has dropped to $149 FOR AN EMPTY BOX!

I wondered what other treasures this seller is gifting to the world. I was not disappointed.
A $69 empty shoe-box.
An even grosser empty shoe-box for $14.50.
ANOTHER empty shoe-box for $22.50.
Oh, c’mon now.
This is evidence when dreaming becomes delusion.
Now I’m getting sad.
Stop. No more!
Oh god! Make it stop.
This isn’t fun anymore.
I give up. Please stop.
Am I hallucinating?
Maybe I’m having a stroke?
I’m calling 911. I’m losing my grip on reality.
“Hello, 911? This is Chad Perry.”
“Yeah. Get over here – right now!”
