Not what I found but what I think... Prices are crazy on evilBay ! With TFA it's crazy...

Oh absolutely..... the movie is really driving up the market value on many sabbers, its absurd

I wanna go back to last summer when you could get a Luke saber for $150 :cry:

I want to go back to when I bought my Yoda for £25

I have read several post here and I sell some live steel swords on ebay.
The problem isn't that TFA has driven up prices, it is that as one put it evil bay has no fair market value in the pricing anymore. It is all about simple greed.
I own some items that I have seen on ebay, one example is the Chronical book. I bought it at Barnes and Nobles for $50. I saw the same book on ebay for $5000.
Not only that have you noticed that most things on eb are "rare". Even when you can go to the store and buy them.

Agreed, these sellers have done their part too to drive up the prices. Its just i noticed this sharp spike in demand and prices once the last trailer for TFA came out-and an absolute explosion after it was released in theaters.

In fact it's a double side problem... Take both side of a banana : one is TFA and the other is greed.

Before TFA, people kept their sabers or star wars relatives objects...
It's only a matter of market at the beginning... All that is rare is expensive. And BOOOOM prices explode !  Graflex flashguns and Force FX are really  good example.

I notice that now this crazyness is starting to fall a bit... But unfortunatelly still here ...

I tell ya, on a french website, i have seen someone selling a MR Force FX Luke 2004... Guess the price 😳😳😳😳 ?

7500 € !!!!!!!!!

Just a thief surfing on the TFA wave....
Who could say that StarWars do not connect people ??
It's probably the most known concept through the world !
Try it... Ask a stranger if he knows StarWars, you'll 100% have a great conversation with him :D

Hope it does not go too high. Maybe korbanth should make some of his kits available to buy on ebay at all times for the regular price.

Just found this seems okay for an empty:

It does. Except it will probably shoot up in price in like, that last 5 minutes :(
