Reduced WAVES 1, 11, 13 at HOUSE MOUSE

UPDATE 2-20-2012: We are sorry to report that all of our sale items sold out over the weekend. We still have items in stock, but all of this is our old pre-sale inventory at our old pre-sale costs.

UPDATE 2-14-2012:

We still have a few WAVES 1, 11, and 13 at sale prices, but let me emphasize that we only have a FEW!!! After these sale sets are gone, we'll revert to selling the inventory we had on hand before WotC's BLOWOUT sale which means higher prices. If you want to take advantage of our sale prices, don't wait more than a day or two or it will be too late.
______________________________________________________________



Because WotC was able to fill our order in its entirety, we are able to offer reduced prices on WAVES 1, 11, 13 for at least several more weeks. If you missed our FareWell sale last weekend, you can still take advantage of reduced prices on these sets.

Re: Reduced Prices at HOUSE MOUSE

Wow, 40$ for a Ashigaru set that cost 15$ at retail.

Yep, those prices sure are reduced. Reduced from F-ing outragous to just plain egregious.

I'll take my chances buying from pretty much anywhere else, thanks.

Re: Reduced Prices at HOUSE MOUSE

Let me share with you my understanding:

1. Housemouse buys ad space, supports events (more adspace, really). A good apple.

2. Inventory dries up. "Supply and Demand" then defined by what some thirtysomething with more dollars than sense and an obsessive-compulsive necessity to "collect them all" will pay on Ebay.

3. Line dries up, Housemouse sitting on inventory gotten from Wizards (meaning at distributor discount)

4. Sandra cashes in by sticking it to precisely the same people that kept her in business all these years.

Pretty crappy thing to do to your customers on the way out.

Re: Reduced Prices at HOUSE MOUSE

The limited stuff is high priced, and has been, that is nothing new.
The special prices are on Wave 1, 8, D1, D2 and D3. Full wave for $24.99
I did some filling in on those when she announced it last week.

Re: Reduced Prices at HOUSE MOUSE

$24.99 for a wave is definitely a reduced price!

I'm in the Heroclix market now, though, personally ...

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

And that's a pretty crappy way to show gratitude to someone who has been a strong supporter of this site and this community over the years.

Wise up. You're a businessman. You know how this works. The stuff that's rare sells for more, the stuff that's plentiful sells for less.

Re: Reduced Prices at HOUSE MOUSE

I always thought that voting with your wallet was the way to show gratitude to the good actors in the marketplace. And I've sent plenty of cash down that road towards Housemouse, to the exclusion of many others.

But if for 10 years you were my best friend and then you came into my home and had your way with my wife, then have the gall to announce it, should I just look the other way?

I just saw the whole "Reduced Prices" and the price for Ashigaru (the only ones I happened to look up) to be in diametric opposition to one another.

And again, for a retailer, I always thought that MSRP would be a good place to start selling something, not what Ebay would charge. But that's just me.

Feel free to ignore me, though.

Re: Reduced Prices at HOUSE MOUSE

She does "start" at retail, usually below. The Ashigaru didn't go to $40 immediately. All the sets have always gone through incremental mark-ups as their availability declines and are marked as such with the note "limited quantities"

Buying low and selling high is the basis of sales. Something I'm pretty sure you are familiar with.

I was holding my tongue...but...when Templars came out she had none in stock for her faithful buyers because she had them all listed on eBay for $40 a pop

Re: Reduced Prices at HOUSE MOUSE

It's a business. If you don't like the prices, don't pay them. Same goes for ePay.

I know I realized pretty early on that Sandra's prices weren't very competitive (shipping killed it for me) and I switched to WarGamer'sHeadquarters and CoolInc, etc.

Of course, that's back when I was still buying Heroscape (because they were still making it) so it's been a while!

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.
