Wow, they say some collectors will go to any lenghts to get that special figure,but this guy went the lenght and then some.

Ok heres how it all stands,I was in my local K-mart just looking for some new guys,and i finally scored an Ephant mon, any way befor i left some guy came in the asil in his 30s just looking as well he then starts taking 5 to 7 figures in his arms so I'm thinking he's a scrapler turns out he aint but what happen next will shock you,i'm telling you this is a 1-10,0000 chance this will happen agine but here it goes,so guys got a arm full of figs just old colection 1 figs,just then he drops them all of them to the floor his mouth drops and his face is a bright stuned red face, so i said hay you all right,he then satrts crying not a sobing a whaling cry hen then satrts tearing up the asil by now I'm in the second asil just watching this fool,he then looks at me and says I spent $30,000 dollars of our vaction money for a bid on e-bay it started at 2.00 i then got out bid and got mad I get really mad some times :rolleyes: REALLY, he then goes and tells me that he's ben looking for a count dooku and coudn't find one so he bidded on e-bay for $30,000 blowing his kids trip to diseny land when he could have bought it at K-mart for $4.00. Talk ABOUT SAD:p :p

No way. This can't be real.

But if it is. Who cares? I have no time to feel sorry for Idiots.

If you see him again, tell him I have an R2 w/ Hologram Leia I'll sell him for a cool 15 grand. :)

$30,000?:greedy: Whoa! That's impossible, one action figure? That is sad. He could've kept his 30 grand for 1 neg. feedback. :D

(Then, he could've bought it in another auction using BIN, for $6.)

man, I get upset not finding stuff but I usually just think " you stupid stalk boy cup full of jerk" or the ever popular "ah son of a B****" in my head. key words, IN MY HEAD. I never cried though. Did you at least slip the dude a kleen ex. and did you flash that ephant you found in front of his face. You could have killed him. If he wants to give $30,000 for dooku you could have got a nice $50K out of him for ephont Thats insane. if you see him again I'd run away. He may be disturbed

That's true that guy belonds in a hospital, blowing $30,000 of his kid's vacation money just over a piece of plastic? Umm... I don't see how the bidding could get out of hand, how much do they even go for? I mean I'd guess it got up to about $10, if he got mad during that, well I pity his kids.

I'd guess though he was just trying to get you to take pity on him and ask if Ephant will make him feel any better since you got it first.

Sorry, I do not believe him...probably just trying to get your Ephant Mon from you!!!!

I guess that's exactly what he was trying to do. Never fall for the scumbag's stories.

Were there any video cameras around, sounds more like a hidden video stunt.

$30,000, BS. More like $30.00

He's an idiot. I would gladly take a negative feedback point on my rating then to pay out $30,000 . Idiots are easily seperated from their money.

I don't believe it.Did you ask if you were on Candid Camera??More than likely,it was a Scapler with an wannabe acting career for you to give up Ephant Mon.

Second,if this guy really collects SW,doesnt he know that a Dooku can easily be found in Trading Forums/Online Stores:crazed:

And... um- he sounds like he needs to be spending money on meds rather than figures if he behaved like that. I would have run as far away as I could just in case he was REALLY mental! Scaaaaaaaaaary! :eek:

He couldn't have bid $30,000 unless at least one other ebayer had bid almost that much. That, or the starting or reserve price was $30,000.

Maybe the seller was shill bidding to drive up the price.

I think its a crock. If anybody would spend 30g on one figure he is a moron. Why the heck would he do that?

He's part of the Jerry Springer/Jacka$$ generation? :stupid: :sur: :crazed: :rolleyes:

I can see it now

"And Jerry, he walked out on me for that...that...Ephant Mon critter!"

"Hey Ephant Mon loves me more than you do!"

"That's because you paid for him!"

Jerry: "How much did you pay for Ephant Mon?"

"30 g's."

Jerry: "Are you f*@!%^ nuts!!?"

Because (1) he had too much money and didnt know what to do with it or (2) his brain size is that of a ant.:D

A $30,000 vacation? What, was he gunna buy Disneyland?? No way I believe that ANY freakin' vacation in the US would cost that much. MAYBE going to Egypt, Greece, Rome, Tokyo, Australia, Paris, London and Amsterdam IN THAT ORDER would cost that much. But, no way in hell that any Disney vacation cost that much.

More like he blew $300.00 that he didn't have to blow and was blowin' smoke up your hiney to make him not look quite so much like the idiot that he truly is.

And, for a DOOKU?? Not a chance! Heck, you can get an AFA 90+ vinyl cape Jawa for less than $10K! I saw an AFA 95 20-back Fett go for $4K a month ago! And this goon expects someone to believe he spent that on a Dooku? Pull-eeeeeze!!

I'm sorry, but I have a very very hard time believing your story, nevermind that someone would drop 30G's on a toy.

well given all the other spelling and gramatical errors, I'm pretty sure he meant $30

The guy must be a loser, liar, lunatic, or lame brain, or all of the above. As for his sad story I almost cried. I wonder if he surfs this sight allot, because if he's that desperately involved in his collecting at the expense of his family then you know he's on the web 24-7 looking for new figs.

There is no need to resort to name calling JediBrian.

This story does sound odd though.

I do agree!!! While JediBrian the story anf responses might be far-fetched there is no reason for name-calling here!

Hay whoa Jedibrian sorry my story got to ya that way,it was never inteaded to cause this much consaversy,ok folks bare with me, this is all the things the GUY said not me even i thought it was nuts and the crying part I may have over stated, it was more of a very mad swearing and it 3,000 no 30 that was a typo,ok people come on put the guns away no more angery mob.I'm sorry.;)

and just for the record I'm not a moron just oblivious to everthing,K.

I seriously think that the guy is just crapping with you.

If the bid went up to $3000. That means there are other morons out there who actually pushed the bid to $2990 or something like that. Now thats a scary thought! So many MORONS out there on eBay.
