Crazy how the limited edition Iron Maiden at MSRP $8999 , but people are selling them at minimum $1k over

I think it’s a great looking game and it’s unfortunate the higher prices

There's one in the pinside ad below your message for 13,500 OBO......

If you're someone who is obsessed with having LE items, or has to have the shiniest new toy ASAP, then go pay market price & dent your bank account. To each their own.

If IMDN is worth buying when the code is complete & the game is finalized, then pick up a premium later. They'll be making these for years. No rush whatsoever.

Hell I'm just getting around to seriously considering buying a discounted TWD or SMVE now, in great condition & low plays, from someone looking to sell & fund their newest purchase. That's how you do it IMO. It's a great feeling (and helps the wallet) when you have patience & avoid the hype.

Sounds more like Jealous & Jealouser.

If someone has the cash and is willing to pay a premium for something, why all the hate? You guys are a broken record.

They can list it for what ever they want, if it sells is another matter.

OP, look up the definition of price gouging. You know not of which you speak.

#10 1 year ago

It's nice if you are doing the gouging.

It's not nice if you are being gouged.

If you can afford an IM LE at ANY price - face or scalped - you really have nothing to be complaining about and no actual financial problems in life and should be ashamed for even bringing it up.

Its unfortunate so many are flipping the le but if someone is willing to buy than y not? The premium is just as good and is much cheaper... heck the pro is just fine and is half the price in some cases . So if people wanna spend extra to have that le then thats on them. Same thing happened on many le pins at release and now look what you can get them for. Patience is key in this hobby but alot of folks have more money than that lol.

All I have seen were glowing reviews for Iron Maiden. If you don't want the price to skyrocket keep your mouth shut.

Yawn. I guess you should have bought one sooner rather than start a bitchfest over missed opportunities.

This week goes down as the week where Levi keeps surprising me in a positive way.

What he said the past week or so here on Pinside and how he seemed to be the only mature guy during that shitstorm last weekend.
Cheers to you, unknown friend.

If you bought it and want to sell it for a profit, go for it. Its not your money being tied up. I bet you complainers would not sell your games for half of what you paid for them.....

Price gouging to me would be jacking up prices on things like orphan drugs, gasoline or hurricane roof repairs, you know necessities. This isn’t distributors charging these higher prices, it is flippers. I would never buy a NIB from anyone but an authorized distributor. How do you know that NIB didn’t bounce off the truck? Who wants to deal with that issue of figuring out if damage came during first or second delivery? But if people want to pay up to have it sooner, so what? I do think it is strange that others are so upset - it doesn’t affect your life except if you are jealous.

That reasoning is so stupid it's ridiculous.
