They were also the only place I found that had the 7 track US Big Me single, thank I paid 11 for that - though I did see they had it again recently for 19.99!

But yes, they are generally best avoided.

This is just crazy. 100$ max i think
Ended up going for $350.

I would've paid $200 but not a cent more.

You'd probably get a great price for Generator at least... there seems to be a few more Have It All's around and at more reasonable prices.

Yeah that's a bit crazy - and it's very incomplete, but it would have been a bit of work to put together so the buyer does get that if they were starting. 35 for $350 is $10 each - lets see I have 240 - so that's ...

That was a good price for the Japanese TCATS, They are big enough their staff could make the odd error perhaps. There is also an Australian 7 Track Big Me too - it's much rarer. They used the US inserts but the disc is pressed in Australia.

It's crazy good, so buy it while you can... unless this means they're going all the way down to like 10 or $15 or someting like that.

Always change the .co.uk to .com - you can see the sold copies then...

Ok, thanks. I will do in the future, it's just that I'm always on the British version so I didn't think about it. But the last one has been bought anyways.

Do the actual shopping in your normal version, no need to buy the item on .com, it's just a tip about the item count. Its a new feature and it hasn't migrated to the other site versions yet. Of course you can buy on any site version - its all still under your one account it makes no difference at all, except the Australian one doesn't appear to have Ebay buyer protection - I guess they think the Aussies are making too much money already lol
