    BEWARE

    Seller TFCTOY on ebay is selling the Botcon exclusives, but I BET that these will NOT have the Botcon cards or instructions since they are coming from OVERSEAS!!!!

    Example HERE

    MOD, I think this should be frontpaged so people don't get scammed!!!

    Ebay:
    Twitter:
    People have been selling the Botcon toys illegally for months. This isn't actually new.

    I know, but since the convention is over, I thought I would sort of, remind people since it is after the convention and people are scrambling for exclusives.

    It's funny, judging by the number of eBay auctions, it seems like no one wants to keep their figures.

    tfctoy has been nothing but one of the best overseas sellers I've ever dealt with. They usually send the item(s) the same day I pay, provide a tracking number (without asking) and everything is exactly like the auction(s) have described.

    If the seller doesn't mention the instructions or card, why would you bid if you want them? I don't assume nor call it a scam when I don't get what's not described in the auction.

    IMHO the best figures were scourge and the sweeps. Those seem to be selling like hotcakes...

    Which is true, BUT I am just making a suggestion to anyone who wants to grab them on eBay to be careful from who they are buying from. Nothing bad about TFCTOY at all, but making people aware that if they are expecting to get the Botcon cards and instructions, they will be dissapointed.

    I Guess I should have made the title of this thread: Be Aware!
