Judging by the results of said posted poll, it seems the general consensus is on purchasing a product for actual use as opposed to purchasing it for winning the proverbial ebay lottery.
I'm really not against lotteries and gambling out of principal, but one thing many of us on this message board have in common is excitement over this game. If you are willing to double or triple someone's profit over this game for a chance to actually get or use said collector's edition, you must be very excited about this game. Hence, if you are someone selling this game, you're not just happy over turning a tiny profit, you're ripping off one of US. I'm very happy over the results. For every 1 person that gets a copy to flip, that's 1 less person excited about the game that gets their copy, or has to buy it on ebay for way too much.
