For $900, I hope it's a scam.
Otherwise I'd never be able to afford anything like it if that's what the market is dictating.

Hes name is funny but he has 205sales 100% positive so it's a good change it's not a sham/scam
He is also located in tokyo so maybe the name sounds better there.
Prize is high but how often do NEW ones come on the market? If it's not a scam this is somthing for a collector.

One thing is certain, and that is i cant afford it

fwiw, I do see quite a few sell for about 900 bucks brand new. so the price is quite right on, but he added a bit of 90 bucks for gas I suppose.

for someone who have the cash, this would be ok. but as much as possible, you'd be better off to look for a used copy which sells for about a 1/2 of how much mr. sham is selling it for.

Last year they could even be had new-in-box for as low $500. I find $900 a bit excessive, don't you?

YES !

although the $500 would had probably been an old stock. the owner would probably been very pleased with that purchase. $900 is just well, not worth it unless it is the limited edition.

LOL...
I didn't think that way.
I thought that seller cheated some people already but when I click that ebay link, he got 100% feedback so I thought I might have missed the news.

Thanks for clearing that up.
