Sorry guys, the question here was misunderstood. The OP is asking: "why would one buy SML on eBay, overpriced, while it possible to get them with small premium at place X and Y?" It basically leads to conversation regarding collectability and what exactly you want to buy...
It is very similar to buying new car from Dealer A, where you sit with the dealer over cup of coffee and build your car as per specs and packages that you like, and submit order to the factory - in this case expect to pay MSRP or near it. Or you are coming to dealer B and choosing something from the lot, and then depends how much dealer wants to clear out the stock - you will get nice discounts.
