    I bought some stuff off this guy years ago. Has anyone dealt with him recently? What's the quality of his stuff?

    I bought a couple things from him on ebay. One time I was sent the wrong items, but I sent them back to exchange and he covered the shipping. So, no real problems to speak of from me.

    I've bought several things from him - if it's just a part it's probably ok. If it's a whole figure prepare to have him leave a few choice facts about it out of the description. Make sure to ask first.

    I bought a "complete" G1 Hound off him that had major parts broken off that weren't shown in the pictures or mentioned.

    Shocked at all the negative experiences people have had with this guy. I bought stuff from him on several occasions, and never had any reason for displeasure. Admittedly, however, this was about four or five years back.

    Whoah. Wheeljackslab. I have some BAAAAAD dealings with him. He is an absolute PRICK to deal with if you complain about ANYTHING, even if it is a 100% legitimate complaint!!!!
    He makes you feel like YOU should feel privileged to even do business with him.

    same here, everything has been flawless with my transactions and when a figure had a broken gun, he sent me the replace parts without delay and even extra parts. the only difference is last time i bought was 2 months ago.

    Wow - haven't heard about this dude in years. I dealt with this guy a lot back in 03-04 when I first started re-acquiring my G1 stuff and for the most part the stuff was complete, but lots of loose joints and pretty bad sticker wear. I was a young pup back then so either I didn't read his descriptions correctly or a lot of his listings were incorrect. (not sure which, but I'm leaning towads the second half) I still need to replace my Superion & Defensor I got from him some day.

    If you deal with him enough, you will get burned it's only a matter of when.
    I too had some decent dealings with him and ignored all the warnings from others, then BAM I got hit! Never again, one time is all it took for me.

    I bought from him once back in 2007. Smooth transaction. Then I started reading all of the complaints and noticing all of the negative seller feedback he was receiving and decided to stay away. He appears to have a bad attitude, especially with the feedback responses he posts. Even the best of sellers will get the occasional bad rating, but if you get consecutive negatives in a short amount of time, then it's probably best to evaluate whether or not you even want to associate yourself with that person on a professional level anymore.

    Let's just say that while his prices are good and while you may end up buying something from him without incident, I would still take the time to seek out another eBay seller.

    I bought a lot of G1 parts from him from like 2001-2005 I guess, I don't recall ever having an issue. I don't think I bought any figures though, just the parts.

    This^

    I don't get mad easily, but this guy had me at my boiling point (and over like a $6 part, no less). Sent the wrong part, then basically told me to f**k off when I asked about it. Prick.

    He's a big Jerk. I used to order a lot from him in the distant past, 2001-2003ish. I was a pretty regular customer and bought a lot of stuff from him. I alwys seemed to get good stuff, however a few times I didn't and questioned him, he really reamed me out. I avoid him like the black death now.

    That's the thing, so many good experiences at first, but then you ask him a question and he loses his shit.

    Again, not something that happened to me personally, but it appears to be a frequent enough complaint that it appears valid
