I checked the bids and it seems that it's a bluff Almost same bidders in very minimal time intervals.

I've been monitoring this and the prices spiked as soon as the Season 2 Kickstarter closed - regularly getting $800-1000.

An item's "worth" all depends on how someone else values it by how much they are willing to pay for it.

Interesting... I guess Season 3's Kickstarter Close date is the time to sell off old games...

What you're missing is that collectors aren't a particularly rational sort. It's like paying hundreds of dollars for a rare penny. People do it because they collect coins and need that one for their collection.

Some people have more money then sense, but it's there money they can spend it as the please. I own the game it's fun, but some cardboard and plastic bits are not worth that much. maybe it's the collectors mentality the rarity makes it worth it to some. People spend thousands of dollers on baseball cards and the like, but I just don't get it.

I'd love the Season 1 promo survivors as much as the next new player to the game but I have the common sense to not spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on a few tiny plastic figures (I did that in the S2 KS ). Kudos to those with the foresight to capitalize on the demand for them though.

Tempts me very much to reconsider if I would like to have those three promos, or if they can go bye bye and I can buy so much more...

Absolutely this. It is crazy money and I certainly wouldn't pay that much but anything is only worth what it sells for and if you have a high disposable income and really have to have the official promo miniatures then this is the way to go. I paid over the odds to get the promos as I really wanted them as I am a bit of a completionist but nowhere near this much. But now I haven't even bothered getting all the season two promos as there are just far too many now. I wouldn't expect the season two promos to go for anywhere near as much as the original ones though, I suspect that those who have bought them with the intention of making profit through eBay are likely to be disappointed.

I've not checked all the auctions listed, but generally when you see repeated small increments by the same bidder in very minimal time intervals, if you tick the 'show automatic bids' box, you'll say that those small increments are all separated by an automatic bid (so it's just someone 'automatic bidding' manually).

If I was GG I would reprint the promos on the sly and then slowly sell them through Ebay listings.
