KSV sets already on ebay?

Post by GrumpyOne » Wed Jun 20, 2018 5:43 am

Unreal.

Someone already has encounters 1-6 for sale on ebay.

That didn't take long...

IKs it people purposely overbuying to try and sell half to fund their addiction?

That is some markup. They know they need to hit ebay before DF has them in the store that will be the only way to make money. More power to them this has never bothered me at all. The set sold on ebay where just more money that went into the KS that help get me more stretch goals :)

Not speculating and not complaining.

I have no problem with resellers. At some point, DF received their $$ for the original purchase so no harm to them.

It was just more of a shock to see the listings this morning considering I just received my first shipment and haven't even had time to open the package yet.

We are with uncle on this one .

The seller stumped up the cash in the KS and in doing so helped all the backers. So its up to them what they do with their sets - even if some of us have not got our yet!

What will bug us is, if Resin Catacombs 2 sets are sold on ebay immediately they are delivered, as they are a limited production run and those purchased for Ebay is stopping a buyer who might actually want to use them for their intended purpose and not just to make money :evil: .

I have no problem with someone reselling KS sets on ebay. I do have a problem with store buyouts. And this is coming from someone who resells.

I think the current listings on ebay are too high. We'll see if someone bites. It appears to be someone with a high ebay feedback and an ebay store, so it was likely a "whale" who is trying to cash in a little.

I used to buy an extra 10 sets of the KS sets (or the largest pledge) to subsidize my pledge. In KS1 and KS2 it almost covered my entire personal pledge. In KS3 it was a lot less, and then the KS got so expensive I couldn't front the cash to resell anymore at over $5k per year in pledge dollars. Now I just buy/sell collections. :(

Clarification: the Catacombs 2 sets from this production run which were available through preorder may have sold out, but they are in no way a limited production item and have never been advertised as such. They will most definitely be reordered.

I know DF gets frustrated when high demand resin sets sell through quickly and show up inflated on eBay, which is part of why they are often limited to 1 per customer per set. In some cases they'd like to have more in inventory but the limiting factor actually endsup being production capacity at the factory which handles resin.

As for that DoD quick flipper, IMO... they can do what they like with the sets they paid for, but good luck to them at that price. I think they way overshot and won't find any takers.

They had a preorder promo right on the DF home page.
