    On top of it all, that X-Wing announcement has a few blatant typos. $7,000 (x2) and apparently no one looked over the announcement for errors before publishing.

    What's to stop any collectibles company from holding onto some of their limited items and then selling them later at bloated after-market costs? I guess there's nothing.

    When a licensed company like EFX promotes scalping, what would you expect from regular Joe then...

    Unbelievable, what they always find in their warehouses ... Maybe the biker scout has been waiting so long because they just did not find him. o_O

    $2,399 for a tie fighter; they're defiantly going off ebay prices. Who handles the EFX license at Disney? It'd be worth letting them know about this, companies aren't supposed to scalp their own product.

    I'd rather pay this price to a collector from eBay. That way eFX don't get the money.

    EFX is probably trying to scrape together money to renew their SW license

    Man, I would really like to take a visit in that warehouse. As we've seen so far is like a magic place, or like that warehouse from Indy. It's far more interesting than Lucasfilm Archives LOL

    How much you wanna bet they "find" a Vader Legend. That should be at least $5,000. :lol:

    I'm curious if EFX's license agreement with Disney/LFL allows them to scalp their own product over the agreed retail price

    Was wondering this too. Certain people over at the Friends of EFX Society (aka Rebelscum) seemed to think that was a ridiculous thing to suggest, and that a company trickling out seemingly every previous release they’d ever had and selling some for close to retail, some for thousands over was totally normal and totally cool. I wonder if Disney would even care if they knew.

    Not surprised at the response from Rebelscum. That site is a shadow of it's former self, it's now just a giant circle jerk over anything SW good or bad.

    What's funny is the Rebelscum people are fine with a licenser scalping, but if a collector sells something for market value they all lose their *

    Not long ago there was a dude on Rebelscum who got his helmet for $800 from EFX, from one of these warehouse finds, and about a week later he wants to sell it for $2000. And he is not alone. EFX is not better than these scalpers and flippers, they definitely learn from each other.
