i'm utterly confused at some of the people that sell on ebay... looks like after shipping and taxes the set comes out to $245 and there is someone selling it for $289.99 w/ free shipping... thats like $0 profit, and potentially a loss after shipping... i must be missing something...
The bigger profit -- if you were looking to resell -- were on these two items -- released on the same day: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200 ... mplete%3D1

AND The Lego Super Mario Monty Mole and Super Mushroom set -- which was given free with purchase of the mario starter set at a lego store or if you pre-oredered way back in April.

I typically wait until the start of the month where i get 5 free listings with no final fees etc. Outside of that, def not worth the trouble.

i do not understand overpaying for a set that just dropped (other than bonus sets that are somewhat limited). the piano will be back in stock. it's ridiculous to pay anything over retail. just be patient.

The email I got said the sale starts today and includes a free Yoda lightsaber, but I don't see anything about it on the site. It was out of stock when I got around to looking.
