50 tickets at $5 each ... $250.

Set price was $75 at the show, but obviously more on the after market ... still makes me wonder what will happen to the surplus. Charity ?

I think the surplus will likely to go into the funding of Eurobricks forum.

CopMike, thanks for contributing this lovely set to our own Eurobricks Raffle. :wub:

Its whats happening for me. I assume its a mistake...surely 49 people dont have to pay for 1 persons P&P?

(Dont mind about the extra costs though, its more than just hosting that money goes into for the site

We have a Virtual Private Server and Software Licensing fees. Not to mention this set wasn't acquired at Brick Con so it was considerably more than the $75. Yes, the proceeds all will go to Eurobricks administrative fees and contest prize funds. If you don't want to buy a ticket, Pete, don't. But there's no reason to be smug when you don't have all the answers yet.

I will look into the shipping. I set it at 0, but if it's charging you $4, then there's an error somewhere. The $5 raffle price includes shipping. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

On the bright side, it's not trying to charge me $4 shipping anymore. :)

I'm not being smug ... just enquiring what the entrance fee is going towards other than the prize and the postage. I think it's a fair question ... :)

Firstly thank you to CopMike, for being so generous as to donate this fine set. One point will the draw be after all the tickets are sold or on a set date?

Thanks for putting up the raffle, and I'm only a minor contributor in posts and in general, but I do appreciate it! If I win great, if not at least my money went to a good cause!

Raffle on! :laugh:

Think about it:

A set sold for 75 USD.

Shipping will be WORLDWIDE in BOX.

Current market value is 150 USD.

Plus this is a "free" raffle, you DON'T have to enter.

I wish I was allowed to be part of this.

I'm not sure about when the raffle will be held, but my personal guess is as soon as all tickets are sold.

Big Pete: Be part of the raffle or don't. But please do stop commenting on the price. This is a world wide forum and shipping to Hong Kong, South Africa or Chile doesn't come cheap.

What's with all the whining? It's $5 for a chance at an expensive SDCC exclusive set. I don't care if they buy coke and hookers with the money.

Buy-in on! deino2.gif

Oh, I see the innocent curiosity now. Thanks for clarifying. It must be one of those things where it's hard to translate what's being said online because we read it and add our own tone. Sorry about that.

I actually was hoping you were being smug and accusatory, because it helps to be able to prove we're honest. :wink:
