I don't know, I think maybe we are getting greedy. like Troy said, it's a good deal, and I think he was trying to build up a reputation with the first round. I'm thinking he's willing to let the current stock go at the origial price but the new orders may start costing more.
My listing ended, but I emailed him and ended up buying them for the same price, just through PayPal, not ebay, which also saves some fees. I think (and I recommended coming here directly) that he is trying to maybe get away from ebay where possible.
