I just came into one of these Blackhole busts and its not numbered, its a PROMO. thiers a promo sticker on bottom of box and the Certificate sais PROMO. Anyone know the rarity on the promos. i see the regular limited to 1000 going for 400-500 on ebay. is the value of a promo concidered to be much higher?, and just how many Promo's are produced. any advice, knowledge would be helpfull

Thanks

Promos go for more $ in general, but if you are here to ask how much you should start your e-bay auction for, you are at the wrong place.

As for the amount of promos made, well GG has stated that it depends on the bust. Sometimes there could be 100 promos, or just around 20-30.

You me and everyone else. No offense to H_D but already getting a promo when no one else has there's yet, plus it's the first post??

It does make one wonder.

H_D please by all means prove our skepticism wrong by posting a pic. I have no problem admitting I'm wrong when proven so.

I didn't say you were going to sell it.

Nice job though.

Would you care to say how you were able to snag it?

I was one of the lucky ones who got an order through for the numbered ones. I got my tracking confirmation today.

You are going to like it Sal. It's defiantly NOT the best nor my favorite bust in my collection, but it does look cool with all the other Storm troopers. It's kind of like a trophy that I got from GG. I mean this bust so far has been the most challenging to get a hold of. I got #630

Thanks for that word TW.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to getting mine. I didn't get it today, but then I took a half a day from work (that's where I had it delivered to). So, it could be there waiting for me tomorrow...

Yeah, I was reading your posts over in statueforum. Funny that you took the advice of "Lockford88," AKA HolyCrapToys, the biggest piece of crap scalper on all of ebay and the internet.

It seems to be mostly scalpers that post on that site (there are a few cool non-scalper types that post there, however). Most of those guys call themselves "flippers," which is just a cute word for "scalper." Funny thing is, the correct connotation of the word "flip" as used in the real estate market, is that you buy something, MAKE IMPROVEMENTS ON IT, then resell it at a profit. Obviously these guys don't make any improvements on a product, they just try to hoard it and sell it at a premium. Most scalpers are just a bunch of bottom-feeding "middle-men" who live in their parent's basement and prey on weak-minded or impatient collectors. Here's the link if anyone wants to read this crap:

lol! Flippers, huh? There's no prettying up the word scalper, flipper doesn't cut it, they're still scumbags to me. I'll admin though, I got a laugh reading that thread when I came across DDura711's response: "FLIP IT!"

Too funny, a collectible website that almost all members are scalpers. Maybe it's the people that get banned from here and other more respectable forums?

Hey you guys read that thread at RS about the guy Scumbag that traded a BHB for a 1st release Vader with Holycraptoys. Well I'm thinking that Scumbag is Holycraptoys. What do you think Snags?

It could be, bro. Either that or it's one of his butt-buddies trying to spread his propaganda. He wants to be let back onto RS SO bad - it's pretty damn funny the lengths he'll go to. Silly chump.:whip:

I sell stuff on Ebay that I never intended to...and it SUCKS. I don't think this guy is going to miss his Promo...makes me mad 'cause I just wanted ONE Blackhole Stormtrooper. Poo. I wouldn't have sold it- it's just too damned cool!

Well, since this tool couldn't get $1,500 for it he was more than generous enough to drop the price down to a low low $1,150.

You are totally awesome for doing that.:thumbsup::rolleyes: (http://cgi.ebay.com/BLACKHOLE-STORMTROOPER-STAR-WARS-BUST-GENTLE-G-PROMO_W0QQitemZ300002567639QQihZ020QQcategoryZ751Q QrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)

TW, I knew that this was what his intentions were, that's why I was trying to be a bit leading with my questions. I didn't want to come outright and say he was going to sell it, but it was VERY apparnet.

Just look at the fact. He was a new poster on the boards at the time of the post (still is as of this post). He got a PROMO, even more rare (if real). Someone just doesn't get a promo, especially a person that doesn't know what the hell they are about. Or even if he didn't know what they were about, the questions that followed were evident that he was fishing for info and was going to sell it to begin with.

I'd venture to guess this isn't even really a promo but one of the 1000 and the number was taken off and promo painted on to try and attract even more ill-begotten money.

Exactly what Turbowars said. You MADE it OUR business when you started posting about it here.

For everyone else, here's this douchebag's eBay name "saltdazon." Do the right thing folks and DO NOT BUY FROM HIM!!!

He's only bringing down the collecting community for his own selfish needs.

And you can see he supports other scalpers because he bought a Hem Dazon figure for $12.95 on eBay..check his feedback. (Ironic given his forum namesake...)

Dude, if you can't wait for figures and pay a premium for them, that still doesn't excuse you sell for a premium. You're feeding your "Have to have it now" addiction (and that IS what it is) by selling off a piece like the BHS bust.

You need to "go home and rethink your life."

Blatant scalping is not at all well recieved here or any other respectable collecting site.

If you keep posting, especially about this, you are going to continue to be called out on it. So do yourself a favor and just keep quiet. Notcie I didn't say leave. I'm playing the "PC" part here. Stay here at SSG if you wish, just realize that you've been nailed on a notorius scalping scheme and will be remembered for it for a long time.

Hey, I thought he said if it didn't sell, he was going to keep it (since it is the centerpiece of his collection). Looks like he changed his mind and relisted for cheaper.

Too funny lol!
