Actually, I suspect that they've removed them from the shelves in preparation for the sale. In the past week, there were two places I visited with 10 plus MPs and then all of a sudden they disappeared in the space of less than a week.

That's if you think about it $4000-$5000, a lot of money for even a scalper.

Maybe a very good-bad scalper if you know what I mean but you could be right. You would really have to have a large bank account to start with and then mark up the items and hope they sell at your inflated price.

I think your onto something here STL. Of the MP4's I saw in a Perth Target, 4 of them were on a stacking trolley next to the shelved items. However, me being Mr Naive believed they were being added to the shelves, rather than removed.

I was in a local Target today & spotted six MP-4's (First time I'd seen them in that store)

I'm guessing they've pulled them out of the woodwork for tomorrow's sale...
