So i know this game was a big deal on its release but i never jumped on board and bam they are sold out.Then i started seeing all the crazy prices poping up on line and i figured i lost out.Well over the weekend my wife dragged me to a huge mall here in illinois and they had a new gaming store in the mall!So as im walking around drooling over everything i see space hulk!8 of them selling for $120.is this a good price?Should i have bought all of them and sold the extra online to pay for mine.I see some peOple are selling the sets minus figures for almost as much?I used to collect star wars and i hated when people would "scalp" the most wanted figures.Would i be "scalping" if i did this?What did it start off at at retail?Thanks all.ken

In Croatian stores the price is (was) $150.

I would say $120 is still a good price. If you decide later you don't want it, it is almost definite you will be able to get your money back with resale (and perhaps even turn a profit).

I paid $85 or so the day of release at my FLGS.

I'm on vacation right now, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if they still have some.

I paid 70 EUR at a German online shop. 100$ seems to be the standard retail price. IT seems to be harder to get in the USA, so 120$ seems acceptable if you like the game. As an investment, games are about as predictable as shares, so you might better put your money somewhere else. Don't forget that the value decreases as soon as you punch and assemble.

That said, SH is a game that many people love and which may very well be worth 120 $ for you.

There's a GW store right near Mundelein.

http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/storelocator/details.jsp?i...

Check there, they might still have some copies left for $99.

$120 seems to be the going rate for online purchases and some brick and mortar stores. I would say that most people reporting in are finding it for the $99 retail price.

What the future holds...
Well there are two different camps on this questions.

Some think that the demand will lessen and that the aftermarket price will go to $120-$150.

Others think demand will stay strong, especially in December, so it will go to more than $150.

Here is a thread I started that may give some insight to future intentions of those who purchased 2 or more copies.

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/443541

Unless GW is sitting on a stock pile of Space Hulk (which seems highly unlikely) or is doing a surprise reprint in time for the holidays (also unlikely) the scarcity of the game will drive the asking price up. How high? No one knows but the speculators are praying for higher while those who don't have the game will be hoping for a reasonable/fair price.

Yeah, it's just the online GW store that is sold out. Many of their Brick and Mortar stores still have copies left.

Glad you were able to find a non-inflated copy and thanks for the

Board Game Barrister prices everything above retail. I am not sure why, but guess that it has something to do with the cost of the location in that mall.

For those interested, the GW store at the Glendale Galleria (near Los Angeles) still has 10+ copies @ $99 USD, I just picked one up this evening.

A couple of stores in Kenosha WI (just across the WI/IL border) still have it.

The new Games Workshop store has several and Rockheads Comics and Games has some also.

They charge over retail for most their items at the bayshore mall location too.
