Item #320604475066

GRNDL:

Things are worth what people are willing to pay for them.

silentbob27:

True, but still…

One went for around $25 a couple weeks back.

Alfract:

probly helps that it was unassembled,

Shakhorth:

Insane!!! Just insane… :o

Pyro Stick:

There is nothing special about that auction. If it was NIB then the price would be justified but in this case its just another one of those insane lots in the vein of the £1000 Juggernaut. Now everyone will probably think a whirlwind is worth $100 when the average going rate is around £20-25.

Obsidian:

A mix of circumstances probably. Some people wanting it badly at the same time and maybe not in the know of what it normally goes for, leading up to such a high price. Lucky seller! :slight_smile:

Joshmohr:

If i make minimum wage, and work 6 hours a day 6 days a week here in the US… thats most of my paycheck…

Cool model, though.

I won this little baby for a £5, very happy with that!

Why did no one else bid for it?? - or was £5 about normal for the model?

Fequiil:

@nitro: holy! the bider actually involved CDO and Thommy H in his offer!

I know that made me giggle.

Da Crusha:

whoa, they actually used Thommy’s astrogoth to show how cool the model could look. I wonder if they asked thommy for permission, probably not.

$103 for a whirlwind!?! maybe I should sell mine. but it would probably only go for $20-$25. at least mine is a working one…

Now that is a worrying thought....

Magic cards??! thats a different game all together (:

nitroglysarine:

£5 is good for Astragoth though right?

dncswlf:

Bolg: Magic cards are from the 4th/5th edition, where all the spells were on cards, and you randomly drew which spells your magic users had, but there could be no duplicates. then the winds of magic fluctuated by the roll of the dice… and you could get ultimate power cards, or destroy spell cards… or demonic duel cards… and play those in the magic phase… magic was almost a subgame within the game…

Insane - worst thing is - that it takes to people to push the price this far off.

It’s not worth much more than £15/$25 - and next week price is back to normal.

Just another Sunday auction, I guess.
