I suspect a few of you have seem this already (I noted it in the end of my feature last night), but in case you hadn't heard how crazy things got towards the end, here's the deal: The cardboard cutout of the Wii U Gamepad (above) had bids upwards of $90,000 over the last couple of days before being removed by eBay administrators for some ridiculous reason like "This is stupid" or "This is a piece of cardboard. You can't charge this much for it.".

While the lister won't be getting rich quickly off of this hilarious mockup, he's probably pretty happy that things went as far as they did. I wonder if anyone has gotten an interview with him yet...

Heh, remember when someone bought a console box for like $400? Don't remember what console it was.
