Interesting point, Pat. I'd say it's obvious the seller is getting a HUGE discount on the retail. How? It's anyone's guess, but if you wait awhile before buying there are MANY solids going for only HALF their retail value. I can't belive it myself and always ask myself HOW???

(Recently I got the Rollercoaster for $150.00 on Ebay Mint in Both boxes . . . . I thought it was a good buy, but then you never know how much the seller is making, do you? I also was pretty sus about being the only bidder) <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ /> Did I get 'ripped off' or not? Not if I wanted the solid, obviously, but does that mean that there will be heaps of rollercoasters coming up soon for even cheaper?? <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ />

It's anybody's guess. There seems to be no rhyme or reason even for the best detectives. If sellers are making money on selling new solids far cheaper than their retail value, then no-one is going to volunteer that information so we'll never know!! <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

NOTE: – there are 3 rollercoasters now on Ebay all ending within a couple of hours of each other. The first for $299.00, the second for $160.00 (no box though) and the third for $164.99 ('RARE' and Mint in both boxes). There are no bids on any of them. There are probably heaps more that I haven't seen. Does this mean that everyone who wants one has one and that there were too many made so they will be selling them off for $5 bucks at the outlets? <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />
