I wonder how many copies of H1 he's sitting on.  I think he's managed to scoop up every one that has come up for auction in the last year that I've been watching.

I think that you guys are both right.  Cougar's prices are generally nothing short of criminal.  On top of that, the collecting community's opinion (at least that which posts here) of him is generally low - I would think that the first reason plays a large part in explaining why.

Still, I'd like to see just what he has hoarded.

I wonder if Cougar lurks here, (correct me if I'm wrong) I don't thinks he's ever posted.

A couple months back he was high bidder on an auction of around 50 items including H2-4. It just irritated me so I sniped him and got the lot for around $175 including shipping. I just finished selling the whole thing off (in pieces) and made about a $100 profit!!

The ironic thing is that he bid on each of the Hs, after first emailing me and asking if his power-selling butt could. I said, sure go ahead. He didn't win any of them, but he did drive the price up!


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Another thing he does to try to get over on the regular COLLECTORS, is to ask a seller:

"I am a Power Seller, and I can buy the item outright, do you have BIN price in mind?"

Even though there is not a BIN listed in the auction.
I have seen statements similar to this one in more than one auctions questions list.

Most sellers so far as I can tell have told him no, but I am sure that some allow him to buy the item anyway, even though the auction is already on-going and bids are already in play.

Is this not against E-Bay rules???

It's only against ebay rules if they don't get their share.  i.e. if there are no bids and you edit the item with a legitimate BIN - then eveything is fine (ebay still gets their cut).

If you end the auction early and do an "outside of ebay" transaction, it is against the rules.

More money, more money, more money. . .

Sorry to step on your point, but it's not just Cougar that uses that line.  Deadlord36 is even claiming the rights to it.  :)

The trick is to ask if they have a BIN. Then it goes one of 4 ways.

1) They say no. you say "OK, if you decide you want $X for it, let me know!

2) They say haven't thought about it. See above.

3) They say yes, I would take $X for it. You haggle. Your ass is covered, because you never mentioned selling it off eBay.

4) They say yes, make an offer. Same as 3).

I don't actually collect anymore, so I feel safe in justifying my methods.

As to why I did it, 2 reasons.

A) I got very tired of putting hours of work into digging up things like Jade Hare buried in a pile of modules, only to have someone post it in "Interesting Things".

B) eBay does not even come close to providing the service they claim to offer and that we all pay for. Their Customer Disservice is a joke, and their policies are sometimes downright illegal. And their lack of policing their sales for illegal material (PDF's) is directly affecting my collection's value, literally costing me money out of my pocket. So I have no problems with taking advantage of loopholes in their Mickey-Mouse system, and I encourage others to do the same.
