    I would call Paypal per the instructions on the very first post of this thread.
    gongxifacai8 added to the bad seller's list.

    Ok. For me it's just more expedient to call and explain the issue to a live agent verbally and get the ball rolling.

    My exprience with liujunling87_5 so far is; he's legit, you can find a lot of things here, however, he WON'T cooperate if your copy has issues and he won't send replacemenrs either.

    ^ I received my delivered notification from ebay for the blue throttlebot I ordered from huogang197-8.....

    I'm still at work but I will update tonight. My luck, it's probably a box of thumb tracks or something.....

    UPDATE: just got of the off with PayPal, they issued my refund!!
    I spoke with another agent this time, perhaps this was a more senior rep, looked at my tracking and not seeing any movement issues my refund right away.
    Weird, maybe the one I spoke to in the morning was new......yay! :buttrock

    Just taken the plunge with qintianyu-ming on KO MP Shockwave. I know @Brum Bot wanted to be kept in the loop on this seller.

    I had £11 sat in my Topcashback account and with ebay.co.uk's £5 off voucher, he'll only cost me around £15.

    Nice to hear. So you ordered 10/25/18 and received the item 11/8/2018. Exactly 2 weeks.
    Any idea if he shipped via SpeedPAK or no?

    I ordered an MP11 KO which I thought was the oversized Tanaka because they had pics of the oversized one - even though when you scrolled down and read the description it was described as MP11 sized. I had to pay for return postage but I got my money back. Considering the text on your order also implied the same as the pics, I would argue they have to pay for the return postage and offer you a refund.

    I've mentioned before in the thread - I don't think China Post or SpeedPAK are any faster or slower than the other and, though China Post does tend to provide more updates, I have packages from both show up on my doorstep, with no updates, ranging from 7 - 21 days in transit. If something is in transit more than 21 days, I start to worry - at least with SpeedPAK you can log on and ask where an order is - with China Post, you need to hope the seller is honest and writes back.

    I've been importing these figures from China for 5ish months now and I do think the postage tracking and time has gotten worse in that period - though there are a lot of things that could be influencing that.

    Thanks for weighing in. I actually made a deal with the seller this evening. He refunded a portion of my cash, I'm keeping the figure to do a custom paint job and revised my feedback. Overall, I'm happy with the resolution. I needed a project for the weekend since my NBK Devy I'm going to customize hasn't arrived yet :)

    Difference for me is that ChinaPost works with USPS so the tracking holds once it's changed hands. SpeedPAK falls off the face of the earth once it hits the states.

    Got my tracking number within 1 1/2 hours. The eBay tracking says that the information has been received by the postal service but the number isn't live yet.
    It's being sent via YANWEN; never heard of them before.

    Lets see how we get on.

    Did you have any luck communicating with China Post online? If I don't see my wanzhiwangzhe order at the start of next week I will have to take it up with them.

    That guy was pretty dirty sending empty boxes. I'm curious how they were able to arrive without being crushed with nothing inside. I've had enough with items inside take a beating.

    They usually just told me to be patient and wait. My multiple AWOL packages all sd showed up again in USPS tracking within 48 hours of filing a missing package report with usps.com. Seems like the post office tends to ignore import packages until you notice.
