Hmm... nothing especially inviting for me such as CPS 3200. I already have a CPS 3000 and this one is just too expensive for me (now $100 even though my current 3000 is half broken (2 nozzles don't work and hose connection to blaster isn't very good).

I hasn't updated in a couple of days (too lazy :goofy:), so check eBay again. There's a BuyItNow! CPS 3200 for 65 bucks.

$65 for a CPS 3200? That's a rip-off. Be smart, wait until more pop up, and there will be one for a lower price. I got a great deal on my CPS 2500, just $31, way below the normal selling prices!:laugh: Don't buy any 2100's off Ebay unless you live in Canada, otherwise go to Sports Authority for the $7 deals.
Also bid on an auction that ends late at night because chances are most of the competing bidders aren't going to stay up long to watch it.

... No... there most likely won't be, Duxburian. Most 3200s on ebay go for anywhere from 70-90 dollars. Getting a guaranteed 65 bucks for it isn't bad at all.

Back when there were tons of 3200's on ebay they went for around 20-25 USD.

Well, times have changed there, pal. It's 2004, and the CPS gun as we know it is extinct.

It's like the plot of a Mad Max movie. DUNDUN, the world was purged of CPS technology by nuclear war, and barbarians fight with soakertag guns in arenas, Two soakers enter, One soaker leaves :laugh: When we die, we are taken by Mr. Hasbro :goofy:

The one who wins is the one who manages to sneak in the guns from the previous year. :goofy:

I consider our team lucky, then. We got both of our 3200s for 30 bucks each.

Some of the Big Trobules are great deals with just the display price (buy-it-nows at or under $19.99). They're new in the box which makes the deal even better. However, the shipping cost is at least $10, so that puts a dampener on things.

I have a steady supply of Big Troubles for only 14 bcuks each. That is why, I wouldn't use eBay to get a BT. :goofy:

Try Tuesday Morning. They seem to have a lot of cheap Big Troubles and some other 2000 guns.

Hmmm...is a SS 200 for £10 inc postage a good deal? Is it any use as a blaster?

Yeah! That's a great price for an SS 200. It's not very good to use in battle, but it's collector's value rockets it to quite possibly the most valuable classic.

On Ebay I noticed a Big Troudle for 1 US cent. If I lived in America I would buy it and I also noticed soaker prices are going down. There was a CPS 2000 for 20 USD. It's sometimes good to live in Australia because in most of NSW we have a drought people are selling soakers cheap!

They may bring back the CPS line one day, I hope so anyway.

I love it when people who don't know anything about Super Soakers sell them on eBay, that's always great for the consumers' market. I believe treasurelady1947 (the seller of the $20 CPS2500) was the seller from whom DON got the $5 CPS1500, but I could be wrong.

No. The Seller was KVCrafty, and all together it was 18 dollars. 8 for the Soaker, 10 for the Shipping.
