    10 Disney Uncle Sam 4th of July Mickey Duffy Bear 12" | eBay

    What kind of bad crack is this seller smoking?
    I imagine that some avid Duffy collector somewhere, maybe Japan, would go for that.

    I agree. This is the best seasonal 12" they've done. It actually looks like it's made from quality materials and the proportions of all the design elements are balanced, as well as the colors and shapes. It finally really looks like it could be worth $15 or $20. Too bad it just went up to $30, though.

    I guess they don't like money. Wait... That can't be right. I really don't understand what the hesitation is here. Maybe it's that it would cost so much more to make the costumes removable, since jackets would have to have liners and general construction would have to be sturdier. They could still make a profit, but their margin would be smaller than the probly 500% they're getting for these 12" bears. At the end of the day, only the Oriental Land Company understands the value of a smaller profit margin for the sake of lasting excellent brand image, devout brand loyalty and long-term sales. The bottom line is very different, and WDC's is not Walt Disney's. It's lucky for everyone there that the rumors of his head being potentially reanimated are just a myth, because they would be in for some T-R-O-U-B-L-E if he ever woke up and saw what they've done to his name.

    Actually, it just makes me really sad. I just hope nobody falls for it. When I see crap like this, I can understand why the standard Ebay rates for Duffy stuff are so high. If somebody can sell something at this rate, you figure you can charge 100% mark-up. I mean, it's still cheaper than this, right? So then, why not 200~300%? *sigh* It's also obvious with a price like this that the seller didn't buy it in order to help people in the world (most of them) who don't happen to live near one of the US parks be able to get this item. The seller bought it, probably in bulk, hoping only to profit. Likely the seller doesn't even care about Duffy in any way. In fact, this and other sellers may have bought so many that the items sold out quickly and were unavailable when people from far away places visited the US Resorts on vacation. Scalping is always sad.

    Oh I meant the "You guys are gonna love this" in a sarcastic sense. It's amazing how stupid and greedy some sellers can be and how some stupid some buyers actually are to fall for stuff like that.

    And I see it's a lot of 10 bears, so all things considered, that price is almost reasonable, considering 10 bears at $30 a pop is $300 right there. I really need to read things better before I post. I am so blind sometimes.

    Some of those buyers may not even speak English as a first language, so it's probably not only stupidity. Sellers exaggerating prices is just exploitive manipulation.

    Thanks for the clarification. I clicked the link, but looked quickly and I didn't notice that myself.

    Re: New Duffy Merchandise

    It's unfortunately something people do. My dad used to be somewhat that way when I was younger and I would remember him taking me to the store and having me look through the Beanie Babies to see if any of them were the rare discolored kind.

    But it's one thing to try and look for a few things to sell. It's another to buy up -everything- just to resell for higher. That really upsets me. A friend of mine lives close to Disney Land and was looking to try and get some for us to share, but at this rate, it seems unlikely that she'll find any when she gets there. :/

    Well, it is a lot of 10 bears. So, at the new $30 price each, even that would be $300...so, it's not totally crazy...it's just a lot of 10 is kind of crazy. I think these people are selling to Japanese power-sellers, or shops. I'm not sure the average Japanese Duffy fan is buying these bulk lots...

    Re: New Duffy Merchandise

    How do these major buyers know when Disney is putting out new Duffy Items? They must have friends who work there or go to the parks several times a week. Wish I had that kind of time. Love to be in the parks several times a week. the only time I got to that was when I was a CM. And then you never wanted to be in the parks on your day off. lol

    That's a good question! I've seen some buyers get things even before the stores do...so, there's some kind of backroom deal going on there, I think. Especially the ones that buy in bulk. Maybe it's because of the pin craze, but I'll bet there are also AP's who go almost every day, or at least know when to hit stores early to buy up everything. It could also be some CM's who work in the warehouses and see things before they are stocked and either steal them (a huge assumption on my part, sorry), or they know they are there and run to buy them at discount when they hit the store shelves.

    Although isn't there something in the CM guidelines that forbid buying things to resell them?

    Re: New Duffy Merchandise

    Unfortunately, even when there's guidelines, people still will break them.

    I remember an article about come CMs who would walk around in costumes and did horrible things behind the scenes and would film them and put them on Youtube. They all got fired. >_>

    But yeah, I know friends of mine know people who work for Gamestop or Toys R Us and sometimes do things--I personally would feel bad so I don't, but it's not unheard of. Though, at least my friends would get it for themselves, not to sell =(

    Considering the blog keeps talking about how new stuff is coming out for PotC, I can't help but wonder if the pirate costume will come out then too.
