Relisted for $499 starting bid, 7 days auction.


Been there, done that, moving on . . .

That might have been one of those auto relists up to 3 times that eBay offers. Better pictures showing the size of it would help, as would knocking $490 off the list price. Seller wants to keep it, I guess.

This may turn out to be a close cousin of the pink 500 P/U that's been on eBay for 2 to 3 years now with a BIN of $650 or so.


I didn't realize the wood phone was much larger than the real thing.  Even so, why buy a fake phone for around $500 when you can get a real one for much less?  That was what I was talking about!


I can't see how someone wouldn't spring for that...I can't imagine the hours it took to carve that out by hand - maybe using a duplicator???

Seems like someone really professional did the job - definitely not amateur night.

If I had oodles of money I would have bought it.


It apparently finally sold for $299.99 on 10/15/2018
