Yeah, it sat with bids of about $25-$35 for days. Since it was basically ‘parts and pieces’ of the Arcon and launcher (i.e., the Arcon had been built and painted but now existed with fins broken off, etc.), I was surprised it went for the amount it did. A complete unbuilt set, ok, but not really for a built and used and broken rocket.

I have bought from that seller before and all has been well. I think I got my Centuri Batroc from him a couple years ago. THAT one is a hard kit to get.

Completely ABSURD that someone paid that amount for that MESS.
