So you're only posting pics of the group buy mockup, no actual pics?  Not only that, but a $350 BIN price?

Pretty certain there's going to be a round 2 for penumbra anyway (according to the last couple of pages of the GB thread), so I wouldn't jump on this at that price unless you're not very patient.

Yeah, you need to use some of those pictures you took of the actual item and add them to your listing.

0% feedback. No pic of actual item. Seems totally legit.

Dang. Just makes me appreciate those who sell at retail even more. Don't suppose you'd be willing to just sell the numpad?

Good picture. God damned that is a great set... Too bad my credit card is maxed out.

Wait for R2. Don't feed the beast by supporting gouging.

A $150 starting price is not gouging. FleBay takes 10% off the top of the final sale price and 10% of the shipping fee, plus any insertion fees, and PayPal has to take its cut of whatever funds are received. Ultimately, it's none of yours nor anyone else's business what the final sale price ends up being.

I think $150 is fine- I have no expectations at all at getting this set for $150, that's not realistic- but I'd buy this at at $150 all day.

They were pretty damn friendly, they just didn't take kindly to your profiteering.

Obviously, the seller is expecting more than that based on what the previous flipper got. And in any case, it is the community's business that people are flipping GBs, and we all have a right to our opinions about it. I'd prefer that this hobby not be marked by opportunistic arbitrage and price gouging and that those who engage in it find some hobbies other than mine to leech off of.
