    Internet ghouls are cashing in on Kobe Bryant’s death by bumping up the prices of the star’s special edition radio controlled model helicopters. The gyro heli - which is officially licensed by the NBA - had been on sale for as little as six pounds before Sunday’s tragedy. But after the horror smash - which killed nine in California - eBay auctioneers rocketed the cost of the models with starting bids set at more than £300.

    One listing gives the option to buy the LA Lakers chopper for £580 without having to bid.

    There are 41 potential buyers ‘watching’ the auction, which means they will be alerted to any new offers.

    Were they available before his death?

    Edit: they're licensed by the NBA and have lots of other players.

    I checked a few sites, couldn't tell how long they've been around but none had reviews yet so looked new.

    Not sure why you really care. It isn't like they rushed these into production after the accident.

    And on another note; yes, it's sad when people die but Bryant's death has really brought all the virtue signalers out of the woodwork trying to out-sob and out-heartbreak each other. It's getting quite sickening actually.

    Actually, it'll be China making these into plushies for companies like Giant Microbes.

    Why the outrage? This always happens after a celebrity dies, no need to get angry about simple supply and demand mechanics.
