Actually they are cleaned, filled with real soda by me and then capped :) It would take an eternity to find some of the variants I have still filled. There are a few in there where it is the only example of that variant that I have ever seen.
Nothing beats the look and weight / feel of the bottle the way it was when it came out of the cooler ready to be consumed by the lucky purchaser. I try to "restore" them to this condition.
Also, the logo designs were made with the soda color in mind... Sometimes details are lost when bottles are empty and see-through letters don't have the liquid behind them to fill the hollow parts of the design.
I don't cap them with original caps however. If something ever happens to me, I don't want these passed off as original / unopened down the line.
I saw the seller who had all those full ones you speak of. Lots of awesome looking bottles there!

I make it a point to not reply here whenever I update the page, but this last update I just finished was a big one. All of the bottles now have little descriptions telling what makes that particular variation different than the others.
I also added pictures of variants I don't have to some of the brands just so you can see the vast amounts of differences and super rare bottles out there.
Enjoy!
