Electric boxset £500 brand new - be very quick!

#1 Post by james23_uk » Thu 07 Feb 2019, 1:22 am

Don't know if these actually exist or just a balls up... BUT 29 units of one of the most sought after PSB collectables just became available at the original £500 on VF.

They go for upwards of £1k a piece on eBay.

[Edit only 21 units left now]

Checks date - nope it's not April 1st.

Good luck to those ordering - I hope it's not a screw up. I bought mine first time out, so I'm good!

Come on, no paranoia. That's just the VAT deducted, if you're outside the UK.

Ah, I see. Down to 7. Why do they have 30 copies of these, though, years later, that is the real question?

Well, PSB are getting press these days, a good opportunity to flog them?

How have these rogue 29 suddenly become available though..? Were they found down the back of the sofa..?
Do you know the difference between the two genders..?

I talked to a guy at VF on the phone. He wasn't 100 percent sure what happened but said they had them around for awhile and they just updated the website and got around to selling them. Very odd. He did not know of any Yes box sets that would become available. However, when I first asked about the Yes box set he said "that will be late February" and then backed out of that, so can't be sure.

Was down to 5 and someone took the last 5 in one go. Which means there will be competition for the flippers. I stayed out of this one. I flipped my 4 6 years ago.
