Larry from DirectNavigation.com is currently covering the live auction of Toys.com.
Famous domainer, Frank Schilling, dropped out after the bids rose to 2.9 Million.
This seems to be a battle between 2 giants, Toys R Us and National A-1 . Current bid (at time of writing) has reached 4.9 Million . (I think we’re reaching the peak 5Million, my estimate)
National A-1 seems to be using a precise tactic, of raising Toys R Us bid by 5K everytime…
That’s a great psychological game. ToysR Us now knows whatever bid they place, National A1 will raise it by 5K.
they’re determined and showing it!
and so far, I see National A1 winning this.. psychologically.. they are .. so far (I see frustration and hesitation, when someone raise their own bid!)
.. or maybe Toys R us have not yet played their trump yet…
(after auction update: seems that National A1 had their limit at 5 Million -great match! they indeed gave Toys R Us a good run for their money!)
