    So Johosontony is Uncle Billy? Huh, never knew. The prices under that eBay account are consistently among the highest priced sellers I keep on my radar.

    Yeah. The prices on his website are usually a bit lower.

    Is anyone familiar with seller xchzhh9999 ? He's on my ebay saved seller's list but I think it was one of the old sellers that changed his account name. Any idea who he used to be? His ratings and feedback are good.

    According to their ID history on eBay UK they've been 'xchzhh9999' since the 4th of November 2016, with no name changes...

    Perfect transaction with perfectiteminthebox, perfect packaging perfect delivery speed lol. My GT gorilla box was pristine. Tbh I’ve been getting disappointed with baba’s poor packaging recently so been trying other sellers and I always cross-check on this thread.

    Positive transaction with zpdlna802. I ordered the new gray version of Reximus on 5/9, and it arrived today, 5/15. Total paid was $91.98, arrived in 6 days from China to Midwest USA via EMS. DAYUM!!

    His listing had pictures of silver painted but the description indicated the new gray version. I sent an inquiry and he promptly sent me pictures of the actual item, which was gray. Nice service.

    I'm sure you can't wait for your KFC Delta Magnus hands to arrive direct from XTB/KFC.

    This is it.

    Even with shipping it is still $8 cheaper than ShowZ's website price.

    PSA: never bought from this seller, but while browsing on eBay it appears brilliant18aa has the telltale signs of going rogue. Too good to be true prices on some figures, and reasonable good deal prices on others. Couple negatives rolling in about fake addresses, and he even indicates some BS in his listing that shipping times are really slow due to China/USA trade war.

    I’ve literally just ordered an Op Ex from him for half the usual price. He only had 2 left according to the details so I’m thinking happy thoughts and assuming it was a discount and not a scam. I received word that the package has been shipped so I’ll keep you guys posted. Yes, it was a gamble. Let’s see if I get lucky or royally screwed ;)

    And I just realized my only other order from eBay at this time is also from brilliant18aa: a Powertrain for €127,30, which was also on the cheap side.

    I tracked it to this point so far:

    You never know, he could have cleared out his actual stock before deciding to turn scammer. Best of luck to you.

    Ebay:
    Rolled the dice on a $25 Greatshot. Cool if I get it, but I'm not expecting it.

    Another positive transaction with zpdlna802
    5th time ordering a KO MP Starsaber. Got stung on all previous attempts and decided only to use TFDirect or ShowZ.
    Took a gamble but they came through.

    Good luck and keep us posted. Remember if you paid via PayPal you can file a claim at any time and there's no downside. If you receive the item you can cancel the claim. If the seller did go bad then you minimized the wait to receive your funds.

    Yeah, pretty sure brilliant18aa is going rogue, but I'll take a shot. I'll still get my money back if it doesn't pan out.

    Ebay:
    The Greatshot listing has the brand as 'unbranded'. Maybe its a new KO. Maybe its a scam. Totally worth a shot for the price. If something lands on my doorstep that resembles Legends Greatshot, I'll still be happy. KO or otherwise.

    Mine 'shipped' today. Whatever that's worth anymore.
