Would you buy this??

from Yahoo Japan Auction

I think it'd cost more than the merchandise itself to ship it.
Not to mention the danger of crushing it while in transport. :P

He's just selling the box eh?

Well, it's not as odd as you might think. A lot of japanese modelers dump their boxes to save some space in their small apartments.

Perhaps someone who threw out their box a while ago might now regret it, and would be happy to get a replacement box. Maybe they moved into a bigger apartment. :)

Back in Christmas of last yr., at the Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno, he aired "Stuff we found on ebay". One of the item is an empty xbox box. It's just the empty box.

It's selling before christmas and it seems the seller is betting on the fact that noone would read his desc. In the end, it won for $820.

Clearly some parent bid on it for their kids, never read the desc. but see the box, and buy it, thinking the gear is inside. So Jay Leno showed the winning bid on his show.

I bet if someone sell this empty box in christmas time, the bid can rise to $200.
