Is the a real price?

Recommended Posts

Price aside, I'm always dubious of someone selling a sealed kit with that kind of box crush, and claim that it ONLY effects the box. It's sealed...how do you KNOW it's not mashed up inside too?

That's the general condition of kits I see for sale at flea markets! Either crushed or sun faded with tattered shrink wrap and a sunken in box cover. It will usually be a fairly common kit from the last 15 years, and the seller will tell you it's a genuine rare antique from 1999 and quote an outrageous price. Same kit you'd find at a model swap meet for $5 or $10.

You can't take shrinkwrapped to mean "new" or "never opened." You can always re-wrap a box that has already been opened.

I'm talking about kits that were listed as "still" sealed or "original seal," etc. And there's no way to know if the seller knew the difference between old or new.
