Re: Ebay ridiculousness

How do they even have all these unpacked things after all these years?

I guess someone bought a stock of a bankrupt store or something?

I don’t know how one could bear not to tear of the shrink wrap.

Or why one would feel the desire but not do so.

This is a hobby for ripping open the packages, painting, and hopefully getting the models on a table for a game (the hardest part of the equation, as an adult).

Probably, but having said that, I've got maybe a dozen shrinkwrapped Leman Russ tanks I bought for a project maybe a decade ago and never used, so stuff is out there.

I got a decent haul of 80's blistered stock from a model railway shop that used to be a GW dealer a few years back, too. I did open and paint most of 'em though. ;)

My local ex-red shirt had worked for GW for so long that he acquired so much stuff he just never got around to opening. At the recent 40k anniversary, he brought in a shrink wrapped RTB01 box of his to put in the store's display case.

Oh, so they have it like I have with books. I have, like, 20 books bought last year that I haven't read yet. I guess it starts happening at certain age or something.

Re: Ebay ridiculousness

The winner of the auction opens the margarine tubs, finds that they're empty, emails the seller asking where the miniatures are and gets the reply: "They're on the shelf in my bedroom, like the label says. 'Sold as seen', mate!"
