    I don't get it. What's up with just the box. Something special about this box?

    This is a typical example of people bidding from the pic and the title without reading the description.
    Someones going to be disappointed when they open their parcel, and legally theres not a thing the buyer can do to get his money back as it was described perfectly well.

    similar ebay cons include people not reading the scale of an item, for example bidding on a farrari which is in fact a toy car taken at a perspective to make it look life size. all becuase people ignore ''Scale: 1:100''

    I think it is the same box - relisted because the winning bidder realised his mistake and backed out. Also, it now has a "Buy For" amount of 35. It never ceases to amaze me how people greatly overbid or bid far too soon
