    I hear ya, but when it comes to baba, he/she's pretty trustworthy and highly recommended. It's one of the handful of ebay stores I buy from with confidence.

    How's Afclub? He's listed on the good sellers list here, but seems to have a few negative transactions as of late.

    From personal experience he will ship out what you purchase, but will mostly likely not reinforce the packaging so the boxes may arrive crushed. If you complain about said crushed boxes he will likely black flag you and you won't be able to make additional purchases from him through his eBay store. Basically, he has very poor customer service. But again, this is from personal experience...

    Go ahead and check the first post in this thread for a list of sellers that we as other users found good/honest and poor/dishonest. It's not absolute, but I've used it often since I come here and never been steered wrong. And you can always try asking about a specific seller when you find one, we'll do our best to help :)  Welcome to collecting, do you already have a small collection to share?

    Another positive experience with baba...…….

    I bought the metallic colored Giga Sludge from him. Well needless to say, I fat-fingered the transformation and broke the neck flap. After a few positive back-and-forth emails, I received the replacement part in the mail. Trade war or no trade war, tariffs or no tariffs, he is simply the best overseas guy out there...………..

    Same here. I broke the connection port on my TFC Poseidon copy last year and just can't really reach TFC no matter whichever way I tried. I decided to ask baba to see if he can help and that was probably a few months after I acquired the full set (through many Ebay flash sales) from him. It takes many message to describe what I really need but he is very patient with me. It finally takes 2-3 months for him to get the replacement part from TFC and sends all the way to US to me. He hasn't asked for any money on the part and the shipping so I tend to do business with him now even if some times he is $5-$10 more expensive that other Chinese sellers. I just have a more peaceful mind when ordering from him than others as I know I will be covered no matter what.

    I ordered the same item from that same seller 2 days ago during the 15% off $25+ off Ebay flash sale. How long after you placed your order did your tracking number become active?

    My package I ordered the night of the 1st just arrived today. 9 days shipping ... damn. It actually arrived in the same time as an order I placed with BBTS. Pretty good when a Chinese seller can ship as fast as a local retailer. I'm starting to love SHXFG, I hope he never turns on us.

    He's a very good seller, I bought the CW Protectobot Groove from him: it arrived in 3 weeks, well protected inside a polystyrene box.

    I had ordered a week ago and got a tracking number...but it kept saying that the label was created but has not been given to the post office. This happened to me a few times before and it was an indicator of a seller going rogue, trying to buy time before the negative reviews come in. I "just" checked my tracking number and it is now progressing into acceptance so that's a good sign. I've bought from this seller before and had no issues (in fact had lightning fast shipping) so let's hope they're just working slower than usual. I'll update again with the result. Crossing fingers. :)

    I'm sure you'll be just fine, especially now that "acceptance" is now showing.
