Well the bid is up to $2750! Still alot less than what I think they could get if they had auctioned them off individually. Packerboy is the high bidder. Anyone know who that is?? At $2750, average price per model is $171.88.

Jdjr came right back and bid again, now up to $2801, and the reserve still not met. Would not suprise me if they figured the models for roughly $300 a piece and came up with a reserve price. This is getting interesting, just over 22 hours left. Still wondering what happened to the Sky Wheel. lol

No the reserve is not met. I asked for the reserve and they just said that the reserve was very high. I suspect no one will meet their reserve.

At $350 per model total bid is $5600.
AT $400 per model total bid is $6400.

I know for a fact that the sellers know what current prices for the models are, so I suspect that the sellers feel that they can get current new prices for the 16 models.

Yep, but of course if they feel the high bid is a fair enough number, they could go ahead and allow it.

Yeah, I agree. IMHO, I think they are in for a rude awakening, unless they list them individually. And if they do that then there is a chance for a bidding frenzy as each model comes down to the last hours up for bid, and they may just get what they want for each. Even if they list them individually I would guess they would still put a reserve price on them. Just my opinion.

That is true Chris, however bid is only at $175 per model currently. I think the sellers want much more than that. I hope they break them up and sell individually. They will end up making more.

those models need some TLC, and they arent mounted on bases, they must have been made specifially for that layout

My thoughts exactly Mike. I myself, as I said earlier, would have had no problem bidding on one model, even this time of year. Too bad it is only the Sky Wheel base that they have, that would have been worth bidding on, the whole model.
