Group bid for 1825 gamecubes (no that is not a typo LOOK)

Post by FrankThePolarBear » Fri Jun 27, 2014 7:54 pm

I was wondering if anyone would like to start a group bid on this lot of gamecubes on ebay. I think it would be cool if we came together and did this. We'd have to do the math as far as whether it'd be worth it shipping wise (to each contributor) from whoever ends up receiving them, but if anyone else is interested in this I think it would be a really cool and beneficial group bid.

I have no idea, it's a ridiculous amount.

Mega, for sure man. This was more for fun and I was just curious to see if anyone wanted to do a group bid for the hell of it (not expecting it to really happen at all). I guess it just isn't something you see every day to say the least.

Disregarding the shipping it is less than 2 dollar a pop, but it is way too many. I could probably sell a few, but the demand is too low for that many.

Pretty entertaining, I can't imagine that'll he'll even make a profit on the free shipping for all of them!

not a great pic..
but here is what 1 pallet looks like
might not seem to easy to understand the amount of space it takes up for 1 pallet judging from this pic, but 1 pallet really takes up a lot of room...

Let alone 5, it's pretty weird in general. He doesn't even address the fact that he has some how acquired close to 2,000 gamecubes or why he would have it free shipping with no reserve. I'd be curious to here the story behind it.

Whoa accidentally posted at the same time and didn't see that. Mega if you don't mind me asking, how does one even acquire a pallet of cubes?

I'll definitely take your word for it on that one. Also thanks for all you do man. You've definitely contributed some awesome things to this community and have been really dedicated to the quality of your stuff. Just figured I'd say that you know because pallets of gamecubes and etc. are totally just the standard segue for that sort of thing.

Holy crap that's a lot of cubes. Did anyone here pick up the lot? Mega - if you did you could make an even more epic 'bad ass' logo :)

Seriously guys - what is this person going to do with it; sell it with profit? It's hard to calculate the profit as some of them needed to be repaired. :shock:
