Oh my gosh...hurry- go grab Venus and Robecca now. Scalpers are raising their prices!

Get a load of this auction. My guess, since the seller is on the East Coast where I have not heard of sightings yet, is that he is just getting the auction up to be ready for his scalper run today.....

Who even has that much cash!

It says he has them in hand. My guess is he bought them from someone and is trying to make more than he paid. No one will pay that though with the lowere auctions on eBay.

Yeah, but that could be a total lie. He probably intends to have them in hand soon and just wants to be sure no one bids too early before he does. I mean no one could possibly really believe that is a price someone would pay! If so, I hope he makes enough scalping to cover his mental health care. I was checking the auctions to see where the sellers who have them are located and so far, except for this guy, they still seem to be confined to the California/Arizona/ Texas area and thereabouts. This guy, I am convinced, is just expecting to have them in hand soon. He just couldn't wait to get his auction up, I bet. I am sure once he actually has them to send, the price will come down to normal scalper gouging.

What a dummy
I agreen I'm almost 100% sure that he put the price so high because he doesn't actually have them. If it was the normal scalper price and people bought them -sighs- then he would have to send them but not having them would cause a major problem thus resulting in negative feedback more than likely.

Only explaination other than that he is crazy for having them cost that much.

My son just suggested that someone should post the same to dolls but for 9,997 dollars, just to undercut him lol!

This guy is only about 100 miles from me so I got all nervous that Venus and Robecca were in the Northeast stores...

I'm just hoping he isn't serious with that asking price if he even has them in his possession.

I think this is hilarious.  I mean seriously just be patient.  We will all have our chances to get them.  I wait for either Amazon or one of the other online places to get them like TRU.  I have a Target close to me and a Walmart and Kmart and I check there occasionally, but I would never ever pay these prices for regular dolls....I wouldn't even pay that for a SDCC exclusive....heck I didn't even pay that for my limited edition Tokidoki Barbie.  

I sure hope they are using some of the free auction listings eBay gives to some users (I have 99 free auctions left myself) because even if the item doesn't sell there is usually a LISTING FEE based off the price you placed on the items. That would be a total waste of money putting it on there, knowing no one will buy it.

Someone ought to buy it, but not pay for it, and then he'll have to petition ebay to get his expensive final value fees refunded due to non-paying bidder. He'll get them refunded of course, but it will be a pain.

Maybe it was a type-o.  Maybe it was supposed to be $99.99...which is still expensive.  But hard to believe that is the serious asking price, especially now that the dolls are popping up in stores.

That's what I was thinking.  How about instead of everyone freaking out, message the sender.  It happened with a Living Dead Doll once.  They wanted 130 something and accidentally put two extra zeros so it was 13,000.
