High-street retailer Primark is usually known for its insanely cheap prices. But some £10 T-shirts are proving so popular, they're now being sold for £150 on eBay.

The T-shirts are part of the new Stranger Things collection, and sold out quickly in stores. One customer even likened trying to buy one to trying a PS5 when they first came out.

The long-sleeved raglan style t-shirts feature a Hellfire Club graphic - a reference from the popular Netflix show. The tees more or less identical to the one sported by metalhead Eddie Munson and the rest of his Dungeons & Dragons team.

Fans have begged the store to restock, while others have taken advantage of the situation by selling them for more than ten times the price on eBay. One listing, in particular, shows that people are willing to pay above and beyond to unleash their inner Hawkins High nerd, with the seller flogging just one coveted tee for £150, reports the Mirror.

After checking online for a UK size medium, it appears the top is still available in a few Primark stores up and down the country, including at branches in Bexleyheath, Derby, and Ipswich. However, there are far more red crosses than green ticks, as further illustrated by various fruitless shopping outings recounted via social media.

One person tweeted: "Trying to get the Stranger Things Hellfire Club T-Shirt in Primark is literally the PS5 scenario all over again. It’s sold out everywhere." Another lamented: "Every Primark in my whole county is sold out of Hellfire Club t-shirts. Please tell me what I've done to deserve this."

A third fed-up person said: "Trying to explode everyone who got a Hellfire Club shirt with my mind. I raced down at seven this morning to my fourth Primark and nothing." A number of others have claimed to have seen their sizes in stock at their local store after checking online, only to find out this wasn't the case after actually getting there.

Meanwhile, eBay sellers are profiting off such frustrations, with one size small top going for a whopping £150. According to the listing: "From a smoke-free, pet-free home. This has been packed and stored ready for delivery. Will be posted first class recorded delivery.

"Sold out in the store and no restock as advised. This is sold in the men's department so sizing is men's sizing."
