    Simply a despicable underhand move of deception to get some unsuspecting poor sap.

    Look, he's from Modesto, California! Looks like George is trying to hoodwink the fanboys while he still can.

    because Ebay charges a fee for selling the item not for the shipping cost i think.

    You guessed it.

    What this seller is doing is against the rules and regulations of Ebay. You are not allowed to have a low BIN and charge an outrageous amount for shipping.

    http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/...umventing.html

    "Unreasonable shipping or handling costs - Listings with low prices but unreasonably high shipping or handling costs."

    If you wanted to you could drop eBay a message to bring it to their attention and they will contact the seller, penalize them and pull the listing.

    I don't know If I blame the guy though. I mean, sure I can think that's too much for that piece altogether, but I know how much ebay and paypal fees cut into your profit. If you're a buisness and your moving alot of product sure it's fine but if you're just a private collector who's just selling off parts of his or her collection, the fees can add up real quick to point where it doesn't make since to use their service. My wife has found another auction site called epier, and it looks like their fees are alot more reasonable. I think it would be great if consumers enmasse began to look at other options to ebay to get them to realize how unhappy many people are with their service. I just think that ebay needs to lower some of their fees, and maybe this kind of thing wouldn't happen.

    Bacta, I have sold stuff on Ebay, they take a percentage of what it sells for, not a huge cut, but thats why its free. To charge 70 bucks shipping is outrageous.

    Slicker I was just going to rat him out.
