I had noticed it before, but only recently did I realize how bad it is. I see a lot of Nerf guns on Amazon that are priced way over what they should be.

I became frustrated when I tried to find a website to buy an Atom Blaster, and found only Amazon actually had any. There is only 1 for sale there, and it's priced at 59.99. That's completely ridiculous for something that retailed for around 5-6 dollars. The Amazon seller is here: http://www.amazon.co...2N6N&rh=&page=1
Most of the stuff they sell is also overpriced.

While the Atom Blaster is discontinued, and it would make some sense for it to be more expensive than original retail, 59.99 is just way too much. There are plenty of current products that are also priced unfairly.


So, I would like to discuss this. Does anyone know why this is? You won't believe how hard it is to find Atom Blasters...

What I don't get is how they expect to sell the things at those prices. Unless someone is clueless, they probably wouldn't pay that much.

Perhaps this seller is trying to trick some poor sap into thinking he's buying the product for $19.99.
