Umm, yeah, I'd like an answer to that too.That's ridiculous.





Either way, I bet the seller is VERY happy.

yeah, especailly when others ended within a couple days before and after around 15.00, I wonder if someone thought it was a real truck, or probably a kid, lmao.

It honestly makes me wanna list some of my kits. There's obviously at least ONE person out there dumb enough to pay an outragous amount for a somewhat readily available kit.

There's no explaining ebay prices. It all depends on who's bidding, how bad they want it, and how crazy the bidders are! :lol:

Wife's brother-in-law used to have stuff on his store get bid up like that and 99.99999999% of the time they don't pay for it.

Funny thing is that there was 36 bids on it. I'd be interested to see the bid history.

The winning bidder has only bought twenty-seven items. Looks like he was in a bidding war with someone with even less experience than him. Purely a case of inexperience at bidding and knowlege of models.

The weird thing is on the same page another model of the same type with different box art is buy it now for $70.

The problem with this is that some bozo will think that all of his stuff can be valued at theses silly prices.

Also as it was said with the seller really get this price?

Personally if I was going to sell I will find a local show to sell. The fees for ebay are too much and there is too much chance for fraud the way things are set up.
