OK, browsing ebay and saw item 120322013242 and when I saw this, I sriously thought it was a 40K Imperator rather than an epic one.

Its a brand new Imperator Titan still sealed in its box and he's asking for £100 and buy now for £200... now is that a typo or is the seller being stupid?

Postage is £15 which is ridiculous too, probably could send a package 10 times that weight for that price.

I think a lot of people on ebay like to gouge for postage on expensive items. When people get competitive and try to win the bidding, they're just looking at the bid price, not the total price they pay. Also, they dodge ebay fees on the postage portion.

I agree though, that price is crazy. I sold my Imperator on ebay about six months ago and was hoping to get €20 for it. Ended up going for around €40. :O

On Sunday someone on eBay Germany bought an Imperator for 25 € and some Cents. Now that's a bargain (he shipped everywhere so I'm surprised that there weren't more international bidders).

A few months ago I bid on a complete Titan Legions box, minus the miniatures, and won it for the price of £20. I received it in the post. A few days after, I received another box. In it was a note "I found these models. They're supposed to go with the set and you may as well have them" In the box was an undercoated imperator and 2 mega gargants! Bargin!

I don't have An Imperitor...  :sigh:  'cause I've got An three Imperators...  :tongue: Hardy-Har! I know... sick! sick! sick!
I got two in a huge biscuit box full of knights, IG, SM's and Titans for £20 and the other was an original box set from a GW store in the old days.

Within the past 90 days I traded with a guy for a whole box of Epic that he had laying around.  We squared the deal, and I was amazed at what I recieved:

Boxed Space Marine game(still in the box), complete
Boxed Titan Legions(also still in the box), complete
He also had another Imperator still on the sprues
And a long list of individual units and boxed sets

Before the trade, he told me he wanted the titans to go to someone who will use them, rather than putting them on Ebay and letting someone gouge themselves for more than what they are worth.

Nah... gave that up when I got married. :vD

I believed I traded him a SM Megaforce box and a BT upgrade kit.
There might have been a few other bit & pieces that I can't recall.
