My GTA01 will be for sale soon, I know there is no official date for the GTA02 but if i can get an unofficial answer from an official source on if it looks good or bad for march, same for April. This will dictate when my Neo gets listed

Yes, that too. I agree that this would be a completely appropriate item
to post to the community list. I'm suggesting the wiki page in addition,
and I think having your eBay listing listed on the wiki suggests that
you are a member of the community, and not some random outsider
(although hard to imagine any of them having a Neo :-)
