Default ARTMATRIX - a little on the goofy side?

Please excuse me if this is repetitive but there is a vendor under Amazon that has some amazingly inflated prices for reasonably available kits (by which I mean you would see two or three a month). There is:

#1921 Mercury Redstone $ 798.45
#2001 Apollo Saturn V $2986.75
#K-29 Apollo Saturn 1b $2498.65
#1274 Klingon Battle Cruiser $3978.56

Am I simply late to the party on these? Are the BTs stuffed with coke or meth? If so, then the Saturn V is a bargain and a half...

Somewhere out there are people who are gullible enough to think that if something semi-common has a big price on it, then they must buy it because they always wanted one and the price is obviously going to go nowhere but up. The key is flushing one of these suckers out.

I've seen that ad also and I just thought the guy was a fool to think there might be some clueless dipstick out there that would pay that. At 1st, I only saw the Sat V and thought, " it must be a typo" until I saw the other rockets he was selling. What a freekin goofball.
