Scalper Alert,selling Free Sdcc Skywarp Is Horrid

Geez,This just has to be the lowest anyone can go/sink.

How can anyone go to SDCC get a freebie & then turn around & scalp it

on the EBAY/secondary market????

 

This is just another fine example of a Scalper scum bag at it's best.

 

Geez,One guy one ebay has 10+ SDCC Skywarp auctions. another scalper

has 3 & so forth.

 

What makes matters worse is as follows: There were limited supplies of

SDCC Skywarp given away for free by Hasbro to the SDCC Attendees. Geez

take only 1 & leave the rest for the other paying SDCC attendees.

Taking 10+ free SDCC Skywarps means that the limited supply ran out

quicker. Those who went to SDCC the last few days got no SDCC Skywarp

because of the greedy scalpers who took 10+ instead of only 1.

 

I do realize some might actually like/prefer this scalper surface.

If the scalpers really want the non-TF fan attendees to get SDCC

Skywarp. the proper thing is to give the free item away for FREE. NOT

to charge for it.

 

Geez,Don't these scalpers have jobs?? or any dignity/self respect.

 

I wonder how Hasbro reacts/responds to this sort of thing.

Hasbro does read the internet & ebay.

 

It's one thing to scalp a toy that was paid for but to scalp a freebie

is just horrid/crossing the line.

 

Geez,I wonder how the late SDCC attendees react to not getting a

SKywarp because some greedy jerk. needed to grab 10+ to scalp them on

Ebay/secondary market.

 

At any rate Someone should make Hasbro aware of the Scalper SDCC Ebay

auctions. So Hasbro can shut them down. Similar to how Hasbro shut down those stolen proto types auction a few weeks/months ago

I doubt Hasbro cares. I doubt any toy company really cares. If they want to get rid of scalpers, then the toy companies need to ditch the whole notion of "exclusives".

Let's face it. Not everyone can go to these conventions. Collectors like myself live in other countries, so our only option most of the time is eBay.

I'd be all for exclusives if toy companies actually made them all more available worldwide. It would weed out a lot of scalpers.

Yeah it is sad that people will sink to new levels. The con is there for the fans to enjoy and get some cool swag, NOT miss out on something since someone gets 5+ of everything and then sells it on ebay for 5 x it worth!

lol.. I remember at the Star Wars convention, they were giving out free red starwarsshop.com/RotS wrist bands(think... those yello Lance Armstrong ones)... anyway.. we were looking on ebay after the con, to see what kind of goofy "free" stuff people were posting and the wrist bands were going for like $20...

@loll@

If someone has 10 auctions for the identical item, that's actually a violation of Ebay's policies, and you can have them shut down.

Just go to the safe harbor link on the bottom of the main page!

Actually, my experience at Toy Fair was that the companies love the fact that their stuff gets so much money on e-bay. It means their product is hot and valuable. Toy Biz intentionally limits the releases of some hot figures, like Dark Phoenix, to create a demand which inevitably raises the secondary market prices. High e-bay scalping prices means the toy companies marketing stratagies are working and they love that and encourage that.

i know i know haha... the chip doesnt even do anything to the LOC SKywarp. its just a little bonus. The code on the back you can enter on the site and it'll give you a special con-attending cybertron map. and a little thank you from hasbro for attending the con too.. if you went, that is ;)
