I think you took a wrong turn somewhere...

Maybe I misunderstood but selling something that is $180 for $280 seems like easy profit and selling to people who if they just looked at the LEGO store would see they were being ripped off.

Some people will pay a premium for the "before anyone else" status...

What do u mean ripped off? Don't even know what the conversation is about but again, ripped off? These people should realize that they did not get ripped off, they should realize that they overpaid cause they are too stupid and lazy to look around

True, having something a few days early must be worth a $100 to them. Odd but true.

Maybe some went to internet reviewers. Well worth a $100...

It wasn't lazy or stupid. They purchased before street...

Well in that case...still no rip off in first place, if I'm going to list brick bank for cool G, is that ripping ppl off? No, im not making them buy it

On one level I agree that the people buying should find out what the real price is (i.e. LEGO's price). But we all know there are some people with more money than sense and putting it up for $280 or $1000 in your example is just gouging them and taking advantage of their stupidity. Unless it was for reviews (and I didn`t see any before Jan 1st that didn`t come other than from LEGO supplied set s like Brickset) then paying $100 for 2,3 or 4 days early is just a silly waste of money. But it is their money so....

The secondary market exists because there is demand BEFORE during and AFTER a set is officially available. The price a buyer is willing to pay for this service is in their hands - moreso if it is pre-release as they shall be able to  get it cheaper if they are patient.

20% off for Brick Friday plus nutcracker boi plus paypal coupon for eligible countries plus cashback sounds a nice deal.

Except when you're in The Netherlands, because BB is €170 (vs €150 in Germany) and there are no paypal coupon nor cashback options available here. :P

The cashback ends before Brick Friday. I already bought it from TRU with £5 off, 20% cashback (received), free minifigure collection, and £10 gift card, which is probably better.

If the Nutcracker is the new GBH, we're all made! :)
