But it's a free market, and if you look at the materials, you'll see most of them also require engineering to be made. Unless they're camping all the engineering vendors for Gyrochronatom's, Fused Wiring, and Big Iron Bombs, it's going to take more than 5g of your time to make them one. If you're accepting 5g tips for Choppers, or anything you craft for that matter, the problem lies with you or your server, and not the change itself.
As for mass selling in the AH, that really wasn't my plan either, but as P.T. Barnum used to say, "A sucker is born every minute." There is also something to be said about those who are willing to just buy it out of convenience, rather than farm Gnomeregan, or have jewelcrafters and engineers get some fused wiring, and then sit there while you craft each individual part.
Hell, if i saw one in the AH for 100g i'd buy it without thinking. No need to look up & buy all the individual mats, no need to waste time in trade or guild trying to find someone who can make it (assuming i didn't have an alt with the patterns already) and then no wasted time sitting by the forge, waiting on someone else to click the right sequence of buttons while they toke, smoke, scratch, fap, or whatever else they're doing while they make the parts.
These are old world patterns after all, and the steps leading to the final product and the variety of materials to assemble each individual piece takes a while. The time to craft one of these Pets alone is greater than the time it takes to make a Chopper.
