Wow. Just Wow.

In the 6-7 years that I have been watching these things, I think that I have seen maybe half a dozen new F-122s go by (and that was all one stash, in Canada, as I remember) and none in the proper box, packaging, etc.

The price is probably about right, although the seller is handicapping himself greatly by not being willing to ship it.
Inequality affects our physical and mental health, our ability to get along with one another and to make our voices heard and our political system accountable, and, of course, the futures that we can offer our children. Lately, we’ve noticed a feature of economic inequality that has not received the attention it deserves called “intellectual inequality.”
I do not refer to the obvious and ineluctable fact that some people are smarter than others but, rather, to the fact that some people have the resources to try to understand our society while most do not. Late last year, Benjamin Schmidt, a professor of history at Northeastern University, published a study demonstrating that, for the past decade, history has been declining more rapidly than any other major, even as more and more students attend college.

Damn, son. Nice find. I wouldn't pay that for one, but I'll bet some people will.

It sure is fun to see one in foam and a box and everything.

I would not be surprised to see it go up on ebay for $1K
