    Zhenglen has FT Cesium for $70.00 shipped. That is more than a $5.00 savings. Do people really believe that they can get this figure for 50 percent off?

    If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

    Exactly. I'm not sure why folks haven't gotten that by now. My only guess is that they are new to TF collecting and aren't really sure when something is too ggod to be true.
    We even have a thread that about Chinese Ebay sellers with a regularly updated good/bad sellers list.
    China Ebay Seller Check
    If you stick to Ebay sellers like bababobo00712, netclow and others on the good list then you'll save money while ordering worry free.

    To be fair, some of us go for the ones that are only marginally cheaper than, say, Baba or Netclow. A few dollars or so top. And most of the time, those sellers are legitimate. The real problem is people going rogue. Perfectly good sellers who were legitimate who suddenly go rogue and you buy from them right as they're turning.

    Now granted, when it's huge discounts after sellers have clearly gone rogue, and people still "take a risk" with that (as if there's any other outcome), then yeah, that's pretty stupid. But when it's just a couple of dollars saved and the seller has 100% positive feedback, you'd expect nothing to go wrong... until it does. And again, they're usually legit... until they're not.

    Man, I could be a writer for Destiny 3.
    Is, thankfully.

    I could own Powerglide from the US now but, don't wanna spend $84 on him. So, I'm gonna wait for a China restock.

    Richthofen arrived today, and I have to admit that I'm very impressed. DX9 has seriously stepped up their game, and I say this as the happy owner of several of their products. I am now very interested in seeing how their Stunticons turn out...

    I tried to buy during the flash sale the other day, and yeah, baba was on preorder, and netclow didn't have a listing. I ended up buying from TCP along with Klaatu for a total of like $10 more than any of the ebay deals, and I get them tomorrow instead of another month. Baba's preorder also says it doesn't come with Astoria...she's probably not really worth $15, but hey, I need my girls!

    Thanks for the props! I do my best.

    I can understand peeps always want to save money and if you can and want to take the risk, totally go for it. Just for me personally, I have lost count how many times I've been taken for a sucker trying to save 10% or more off the going rate for a figure. And then the hassle of remembering to call eBay or PayPal then waiting on hold, filing a claim, then waiting for the time to pass then trying to remember to escalate it. Lol... Ya.. I've had to do it many times.

    Guess I'm just saying these days I prefer to just buy from someone with a better reputation and nice prices. Saving a tiny bit isn't worth the hassle for me nowadays and the chance of things being a scam so often now is a total turn off.

    Someone should set up a phenomenal China sellers check thread listing all the eBay China sellers you've gotten great deals from. Like an anti-scam check. Lol..

    I had ordered from him a couple of weeks before his prices went crazy, and my Powerglide's tracking # STILL says "acceptance" with no other updates. It's due by the 29th, so if there's no movement by then I'll be e-mailing him and then getting ahold of Paypal if needed. Baba and Netclow were both out of stock at the time I bought him, otherwise I wouldn't have bought from this guy.

    Understandable. I believe they were both out of stock when I ordered the other day too.

    Got my Powerglide today. Big improvement over the KO OS CW haha. However, one disappointment is the pink tinge. I didn't see some of the comments about the color until after the order was in. As discussed there, many of the photos posted had a really rich, dark red, and it looked fabulous...but in reality he's kind of pink and washed out. I haven't re-built my display after moving yet, so we'll see when I get him next to others what I really think.
