Star Wars DVDs at Ebay? Huh?

This is not a plug for Ebay but why are people paying $200 to buy the Star Wars trilogy dvd?


Why don't these people bid on my auctions?

I wish people would grossly overpay for the items I sell at Ebay.

Because there are people who are stupid enough to pay a ton of money just to see them a week before everyone else can. Kind of silly, but never underestimate a Star Wars geek...err, I mean FAN.

You ain't kidding. The most I'd bid on those would be about $25 (plus $20 shipping). That's still $5 or more than what I'm getting it from Amazon.

I can wait an extra week or so to see it.

I remember during the glory days of coupons and online sales, eBayer sellers would "sell" discounts available to the general public.

Ha, I know a lot of people on this forum who become forum members after paying some ebay seller a few bucks to find out the link to this place for the deals.

People on ebay are morons. simple as that.

Idiots. I have no problem waiting a bit longer, and paying a lot less. Some people just like having the bragging rights, I guess.

Hey, the poor bastards need something to brag about. It's either getting this set early, or owning a complete Stormtrooper outfit.
