    Purchased Badcube Huff from this seller, with no negs, for $55 back on the 14th. Still in transit but so far so good. That's a good price for Richthofen! Think I'll wait until Huff shows up tho. Been checking their feedback every couple days outta curiosity. Hoping all will turn out well! If you end up holding off, I'll post when Huff arrives.

    Right on. Yeah I know whatcha mean. Been bit before over "that too good to be true thing" but decided to roll the dice once more. More often than not for me it's been a win! Something that's in the back of my mind now is a post by someone recently that a seller seems to go rogue around 350-700 feedback. I think zhenglen is approaching that range too. Idk, food for thought. If Huff makes it, I might try'n squeeze in a Richthofen then maybe count my blessings.

    Good luck, but I would wait. This scenario has happened to me a few times, and so now I just buy from baba or netclow when I ebay. It’s more expensive, but it’s just not worth the hassle to save a few bucks. Yeah, I get my money back, but it’s still a pita. My time is worth the few bucks I would save. It’s also worth noting, I’ve never gotten one of these deals to pan out... so it’s all been a waste.

    Hope it works out for you. I wish ebay would police this better. I had a similar wtf so cheap moment on amazon one time, and the seller was gone the next day. I’m assuming there are policing it better.

    Wisdom spoken from experience! Thank you. Yeah I should prolly stop at Huff. Omigosh! How could I forget about netclow? It's been awhile, but net has never let me down!

    Got this in. Love it. Everything is super tight, as I expected from Dx9. Downside of being super tight, just trying to rotate the arms make the wings pop off the clips on the back.

    Was just checking out some photos of this guy, and it dawned on me:

    Did they go real world accurate with the alt mode? ...because I don't recall Powerglide having two sections underneath his wings on both sides; like this toy does.

    Nope nope nope, he's gone rogue. Avoid!
    China Ebay Seller Check

    Sort of...?

    It's just the easiest way to engineer the arms so that they look as nice as they do. Still a complaint I have personally, but I suppose it would have been hard to do it completely G1-accurate.

    Wow man, thanks for the heads up on that ebay douche...I was just about to purchase from him.

    As for Powerglide, I don't have his photo pulled up in front of me, but what was the second set of bulk under his wings for. One of them is his arm, but what's the other; and why couldn't they just leave it at the "arms"?

    It's his shoulders and his forearms. His hands need to fold into his forearms, so his shoulders and biceps can't (whereas the original did but the hands were sculpted on the bottom of the forearms and thus they stuck out the front).

    Technically they could have got around this but as discussed previously in the thread, it probably would have been difficult. I admit I said otherwise to begin with, but after giving it some serious thought, it probably would be somewhat tricky. Not impossible, but prohibitively expensive, most likely.

    Here, I crammed some photos together to better illustrate it for you:

    The guy below him on the bad eBay seller list was the same the other day but now at least a couple of us have been screwed over. Meanwhile, he's received more negative feedback, pulled all his listings and done a runner. People have already been reporting than zhenglen went bad - you should just start the process to get your money back now. May as well.

    Why people continue to fall for these eBay scams is beyond me. Especially for tf buyers who frequent this forum.

    It's like some people are willing to tradeoff a 1% chance of saving $5 in exchange for a hassle with PayPal, eBay, etc. And time wasted later on.

    Not my cup of tea, but it's something I just don't get.

    I continue to wonder the same thing. All the while driving up PayPal fees. I’ve got enough to worry about in my life that gambling on an eBay scammer selling plastic robots shouldn’t be one of them.

    Except that there are known good overseas Ebay sellers with good deals you don’t have to gamble on.
