    Exclamation FS: Elemental Gearbolt Assassin's Case

    Selling off big pieces of my collection and here is one of my treasures, it's the Element Gearbolt Assassin's Case (Gold Memory Card version).

    It comes with the attache case, gold GunCon, gold memory card, factory sealed game and attach lock instructions. Everyone knows that this is the rarest item for the PS1 and does not show up often.

    I am asking for $6000 + shipping. Lowball me and you will be permanently ignored.

    I accept Paypal +4% and ship only via EMS. Be warned that this package is heavy.

    I am well known across a number of forums from the last 15 years so I can provide plenty of referen

    Very nice piece and quite uncommon indeed.

    Do you still have the letter from Working Designs as well?

    Wow, this is quite nice. Been looking at it before, and had kind of forgotten about it. No money these days, though. So I've got to wait quite a while to get my hands on one of these.

    Please tell me that $6k is not the normal selling price for these. I screwed up big time if it is.

    I wonder if this is the same case I used to own. I traded mine around 8 years ago to someone in Japan for some rare Virtual Boy stuff. Is that you?

    I thought that these had a red memory card, http://www.game-rave.com/psx_galleri...ase/index.html
    Edit: http://www.gamesniped.com/2008/01/22...ssassins-case/ Seems there are variants of even this WD item, this appears to be the rarer of the two.

    $1200 is the highest ever for one, though that one did have a Working Designs Sheet with it. I paid $550 for mine with the red Memory Card and WD Sheet.

    There were some with red, some with gold. I had at least 3 confirmed red card versions, and 3 or 4 gold card confirmations. I was tracking them using the Winners Lists from way back when, but the Mac that had that info was taken in a home burglary.

    Should also be mentioned that they aren't gold PLATED, but gold PAINTED. The paint can rub off with sweaty hands.

    Yeah, I'd priced the next one that showed up around $1500-$2000 in my head based on rarity and inflation, and as much as I'd love to add this to my collection the asking price of $6k is well beyond what I would pay for it.

    It's one of the few pieces of Working Designs memorabilia that I'm missing, though it's starting to reach the point where it might be cheaper to just make your own

    Regardless, good luck with the sale Shou.

    My mistake; I assumed it to be a dig at NA. No need to get all beefy with me.

    I thought the last one on Ebay was well in the $3000s and that was years ago.

    Anyhow, I can put it back into the vault and wait for it to gain more value. It's not like they're becoming more common.

    Or lose value over time as the plastic and metal start to decay. I always find it funny when someone shows up here with a rare item obviously anxious to sell it but asking way above fair market value. When people try to explain the sales history (i.e. use some logic and potentially help the seller price the item), the seller then wants to take their toys and go home. Sellers just need to get a lot more realistic. If you paid a couple thousand for something (which I'm assuming was something in the range of what you paid or maybe a lot less), you're not entitled to a 3X return for holding onto it for a few years. Similarly, not all items double or triple over time. Some just rise slowly as the potential pool of buyers increases or more likely, stay the same therefore keeping prices at about the same level or maybe lower.

    I find false accusations of trolling to be insulting. But hey who cares the internet is serious business right? Just because the other person can't cut your brake line tonight means all is fair game and we can accuse each other of having sex with livestock!

    That is why I love VGA graded garbage. Put a SNES inside a sealed acrylic box? Have fun when the capacitors leak and destroy the board making your precious VGA graded SNES absolutely useless and absolutely worthless. But what is that you say? So long as it stays sealed it will be worth something because nobody knows it is non-functional?!?!

    We have Shroedinger's SNES my friends! On top of the VGA graded crap could easily be housing a brick inside and you'd never know if you never opened it; which you wouldn't becaus it'd destroy the "value" of the item in question (or at least the money you stupidly dropped getting something VGA graded). What I like about shou is the threat of being permanently ignored if one "low balls" his $6k figure.

    The last one on ebay hit around $3300 but there are more of these out there than people think...

    A few of the magazine guys got them as well so it's not just "winners" that have them.

    The thing that gets me is that it is a gold painted Namco gun; the case is the kicker on this one, it is nice but I don't think any PlayStation collectors will jump on it "actively" for sale at $6000.
