If you're Vargaman, you trash Star Wars product from Topps, it's what you do.

At least I'm happy when they rarely prove me wrong.

Are you guys ecstatic over 40th? Do you think mw2 is worth over $100 a box?


If topps has a great product, give us a checklist with the sell sheet. They always hide bad news until the week before. Have fun blindly buying in for a full case.

I just bought an 8 box case of MW2 for $910 from Ebay.
It was from a seller with 0 feedback.
He had it as an auction that ended late on Saturday night.
We will see if I get it or not, otherwise I will have to submit a claim.

I saw that, but the listing used an image from another (well established) person's auction. Given paypal's protection I'm generally ok looking past a few things, but no feedback along with a stolen image was too risky for me on a $1,000 item.

Best of luck, I hope you get your money back without too much hassle.

I know, not my best idea! Lol

I am not that scared, if I have to wait awhile to get my money back then so be it.

Is it normal for BO to be out of stock a day after putting the product up for presale? They're likely to get more... right?

Maybe they just priced a little low, as another big dealer was way higher. Be interesting to see if and when it comes back what the new price is.

Lol I'm willing to bet that's the reason why.

At $210 these aren't going to move as fast unless big info comes out.

That's a 35% markup.

You don't think that's a fair markup for an entertainment type product?

I don't see anyone getting angry at McDonald's when they charge $1 for a large coke that costs them all of 5 cents.

I'm more shocked that they even put it up for pre-order at the price they did. I was fully expecting $200 a box for this. Some new names, solid autograph list all around, and it looks to be on-card. Feels like they learned from their mistakes.

I'm perfectly fine paying $200 as that's what I expected. Definitely not angry at all, just a little bummed as $35 would have gotten me some card supplies I need.

You guys have to understand that Blowout does not even want to Presell these. They have no idea exactly what they'll get in preorder from Topps or the distributors, or if the set will be fantastic or suck. Hence the high price.

Hey, you guys started with the fast food analogy.

I'm just curious on their reasoning, whether initial price was too low by mistake or what. No new info came out in these to justify that jump.

Julie Dolan, voice of animated Leia on Rebels, posted a pic to twitter of her hard signed cards with the caption "50 done, 450 to go".

Soooo, animated Leia autos in Masterwork. Plenty of them.
