holy fak, so expensive.  :eek: was hoping to get it at original retail price with some cash on top, but more than $200... guess i need to sell a kidney.  :-\

Clack at retail price? Not in this world. To get clack, you either pay big $$$ or you are really lucky in a 4grab or EK sale or you have network.

It can be done.

In theory, yes.

In practice.  :P

hey guys,

looking for a topre nightowl as my first clack. how much is it going for nowadays?

I got one last week for $225. Anything below $250 sounds reasonable to me.

$50 is reasonable, $200-250 is the price most sell at.

Yup, it can.  Most I've paid is $50 for Octopink shipped from Australia.  All others have been trades or retail.  I only have 3 now (I think), but the chief rule about getting at retail is don't be a **** and help people out.  I wouldn't have gotten mine if I didn't make content and help people out.

Yes, and he covered that with the "if you have a network" part of his comment. People don't sell clacks at retail to regular ol' users around here. I've been trying for over a year and have yet to pay retail for a clack or bro cap.

Oooooops, that's my fault.   :-X   You are absolutely correct.  I just like to share the good news that it is possible and I got a lil eager there.  Apologies.

Well there was two F2's for $50 in the classifieds last week, and Bunny has sold some Clacks to regular ol' user pretty damn cheap.

Random acts of charity do happen on this website, but let's not kid ourselves, they're the exception, not the rule. For every clack and bro that sells openly on the classifieds for retail or near, there are dozens that sell for the markup price. The time investment required on this forum to be lucky enough to happen onto a clack at retail AND be the first person to PM the seller is simply not viable for most people. The odds of the exact cap one is looking for being available at retail on the classifieds is like hitting the keyboard nerd lottery, it's just not going to happen for the majority of users. When someone comes in here asking what they're going to have to spend to obtain a specific clack, odds are they are not going to find the one they want for retail price. The people with the network to accomplish this don't need to post in this thread.

Bragging about getting them at retail is kind of a **** move to the average user, just as much as bragging about buying one out at full price is a reminder of the price-barrier. 

Having someone hook you up at retail is impossible for the newcomer here.  The people without piles of posts and deep connections to the inner circle aren't going to get handouts from the special club. 

The only recent large-scale sale of clacks at low price was via bunny, and that was still a "this goes to who I says" affair.  THERE IS ALSO NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.  Not everyone is owed a clack, that's just how life is.  Bunny's sale did go nicely and people seemed to not get too salty about the whole situation when they missed out.  However, to say that everyone has fair game at snatching a clack secondhand at retail pricing is delusional.

Understand that clack pricing follows a bell curve:  some people let em go at retail, some let the auctions fly, but most people sell em kinda in-between.  That should be the real way to set expectations.

Right. You need something to get a Clack or Bro. And that something can be lots and lots of patience, if you want to buy one at retail, or lots and lots of money.

Then in the context of this thread why are we telling someone who is interested in grabbing a Night Owl Clack that they're obtainable at retail prices? The retail price is irrelevant in this context because no one is going to sell a relatively unknown user with no network to speak of that clack at that price unless they do so to make a point after having us all say it's not possible.

We're not. It's a discussion thread, with many people giving their own opinions. That just happened to be one opinion given. No one can "tell" anyone with 100% confidence what the actual value they can obtain X Clack at. That's the point of having a discussion thread, as opposed to a single post with listed prices.

Wellp.  I had a whole thing written out and the internet ate it.  :|  I'm not interested in re-writing it, only to have it dismissed like this, so here's the abridged version.

Basically, if you want a clack, be patient and get involved in the community.  The opportunities will present themselves.  If you want to throw money at them, that's fine (and will work), but it's not sustainable and IMO isn't nearly as interesting.

I think it has alot to do with known collectors who have proven that they wont flip the clacks. How many times have we seen a new user come in, someone hooks him up and he flips it the next week.

Honestly, no one has to justify why they choose to sell to who they do. I get it. But it's disingenuous for someone like HoffmanMyster to pretend that the average Geekhack user is ever going to be able to obtain desired artisan caps at retail prices through the classifieds. He has a network and a collection to work with.

Sorry about being the person that initiates the debate. I was throwing out an over simplified conclusion to make the whole clack hunting game easier to understand for redskull. Just as JD said, getting a clack requires lots of patience or lots of money. I chose the money approach because that's easier and I have a sick priority for spending money, but that's just me.

I did no such pretending, thank you.  I explained myself above if you had read my reply.  This is a clack valuation thread in general, not for one specific group of people.  I am contributing my experiences to add to the entire spectrum of data to be collected.  If everyone in my position stayed quiet, the data would be skewed - just like it would be skewed if only the people who paid retail prices shared their experiences here.

And I honestly don't have a "network".  What I have is called friends, patience, and luck.  If you wish to discuss this topic further I'd be happy to carry on in PMs, but I think it's probably best to leave it at this for now in the thread here.  Feel free to respond to my post here (I don't intend to force myself to get the "last word"), but I will respond via PM if you do.   :thumb:

Look, I have about as good a "network" for buying/selling/trading Clacks as it gets.  I dare say nobody has a better one.  Probably somebody has one as good as mine, but not better.  I'm not bragging, I'm just telling you guys that I know what I'm talking about, and what I'm talking about is that NOBODY is going to sell you a Clack at the original price.  There is no secret network of Clack owners selling Clacks for $35 to each other.  Maybe somebody like bunnylake will sell one for $50, once or twice in the Classifieds to make a big splash, but that is to burnish his image in the community (and there is nothing wrong with that), but you cannot expect to pay the original retail price to get a Clack.  That is just not realistic.  At this time, almost every Clack in existence has changed hands several times, or so it seems, and after each transaction the price has gone up, because each person added a few dollars to the price he paid when he sold it.  Is this a horrible thing?  No.   Now, there are some people out there who got Clacks in the very beginning for $8 and sold them for $80, but, I think by and large the people selling Clacks are not making huge profits off them anymore.

However, with that said, figuring out a "reasonable" price nowadays seems to be pretty hard.  This thread is a good idea to try to figure out what a "reasonable" price should be.  I don't have the answer for what's reasonable, but right now a Nightowl for $200 is a good price.  I can tell you that.  Even $250 is not "crazy".

That is probably the most realistic response I've read in this thread. I'm not discarding what others said but from the experiences I've had getting my hands on the few clacks I do have, it's just the way it is. Yes, there have been and will be some very few occasions where someone will get one for much less than what they normally sell for but the majority of the time, it just doesn't work that way.

Big +1 to all of this. The people who have the large quantities of clacks aren't going to be throwing out random numbers. I know someone else has a spreadsheet with every clack (is it you ethos, i forget), who they bought it from, and how much they paid.  It's usually the owners of a single clack who throw huge fluctuations into the price market by dropping a single skull with a huge asking price.  Secondhand clacks trading hands amongst bigger collectors do tend to draw a little blood from people not wanting to lose money, but there are not usually huge jumps in price from one owner to the next.

And I honestly don't have a "network".  What I have is called friends, patience, and luck.  If you wish to discuss this topic further I'd be happy to carry on in PMs, but I think it's probably best to leave it at this for now in the thread here.  Feel free to respond to my post here (I don't intend to force myself to get the "last word"), but I will respond via PM if you do.   :thumb:

Every data point is valid when you're looking at the secondary market for clacks, for me it was more about managing expectations. :) All is well.

I think it has alot to do with known collectors who have proven that they wont flip the clacks. How many times have we seen a new user come in, someone hooks him up and he flips it the next week.

Bingo, I hate seeing people flip caps.. >_< I cringe every time. Pacifist *cough*

Re: nightowl prices.  cactux had a Topre one up for sale back in Feb.  It sat there for about a month at $200, then sat for at least a week at $180, and finally sold when he dropped the price again down to $165.  An MX one sold for $180 earlier in the year.

Clack popularity may have jumped up a bit after CC's recent sales, and people do like Nightowl, but I'd say ~$250 for Nightowl is still a bit much.

How much patience do you have? That particular one will cost a **** ton of ego-stroking, "geekwhacking", circlejerking, idol worship, soul-selling, and second hand bitterness.  You may even get to touch it soneday after you're well invested.

And by that, he means stroking Ripster's genitalia. :p
