Mind my asking your high bid?

Based off the other AFA 70 grade R2's, I had it at $265. I wasn't going over $300 for it. I have a pretty set budget so when I saw many going for $225-275 I put it at $265. It was at $225 until 10 seconds to go.

I lost a Gentle Giant Chewbacca mini bust that I had been waiting all week for this evening to a sniper. Grrrrr!

If anyone has a 12-back R2 or Leia they want to send my way, hook me up. Thanks! (just because I'm a nice guy who is poor)

I love last minute bidding. It just plain exciting.

I'm not a fan of sniping but these days I'm forced to do it like most everyone else. It's fine for smaller items but the big ticket items things I've waited a long time for can get frustrating.

I use a snipe program mainly because I'm so darn forgetful. I'll have something on my watch list and think that I"ll bid on it evetually.... Well, eventually never comes for me, and then the item I had been watchin becomes "SOLD". So, I just go to my favorite snipe program, put in a bid, and then forget about it... Like I usually do anyway. Very Happy

It's been my experience that if I put in a large bid, someone always bids it up and passes my high bid, but if I just put a snipe in, I"m more likely to get the item. Plus, a snipe stops a seller from shill bidding, IMO.

I bought a SW lot on Ebay 1 week ago. I sniped it last second with the program, but never expected it went so high (more than 200USD). Hope it was worth it... I have not received it yet still blocked by the belgian customs :0(
I don't think I would have won it without the sniper program...

Yeah, that's where it gets me. I was FINALLY going to go for a 12-back and had been watching it all week... finally got down to the final milliseconds and lost.

Sniping does not necessarily ensure WINNING if the other parties have place a much, much, much higher proxy bid than you! :I am stupid:

I usually just look at the automatic bids and see the bids from people who never bid before, who are the ones that win.
