    This is the truth. I picked up FT-Koot and Apache, but also end up picking up XTB Klaatu to get the $10 off from baba and 15% off from ebay so Klaatu is pretty much free from the savings lol. Never planned on adding Klaatu to my collection so hopefully it's worth it

    Take a look at the seller's other items. They are all way too low prices.

    Just purchased a Black Mamba MPM Barricade from yanguang1971
    From the good ebay seller list. Just under $36 USD after coupon. Can’t beat that.

    That list better be up to date...

    I forgot about the additional $5 - kept thinking it was under the $120 limit for some reason. It is a little cheaper for myself since I never pay shipping on TCP - always have something else I want or put it in roller stash. Also you don't count the extra points that accumulate for the TCP gift certificate for future - only slightly less than baba's at $5 for 150 spent. Ultimately only about $5-6 difference for which I like to support TCP but that's my preference.
    That said I've given Baba lots of my money too - just when it's much more of a savings than <$10. I understand though that many people need to save every buck they can.

    Every flash sale, I cap out the coupon (get the max $100 off). Be it MP/3rd part transformers, lego, or if something is listed cheaply before the sale.

    Got the KO of Masterpiece Ultra Magnus with this. After coupon, came to $51.85. Seller was from China, but only 1 negative feedback (about packing peanuts) out of 305 positive, so I think I\'m safe.

    Ebay:
    If it feels any better, I bought some items using the same sound and true way you did and of course my seller is one above yours for Badcube SS and RA I bought back at end of June. As of 7/4 when I got tracking has yet to update. Out of habit, I emailed the seller today but I know now not to give him another day so by tomorrow per @Phathom's recommendation of allowing 1 week to pass, will be calling PP to get dispute going.

    Thanks for the reminder and much appreciated goes to @ChromeMagnus for starting that thread. Seems its going to be the best guide to avoid these A-holes!

    I hope this ongoing trade war will not kill our hobby.

    that seller recently turned scammer. Anything purchased from him on 6/20/18 and after will never see the light of day. Cancel your order and call Paypal for a refund asap.
    He has also slashed prices absurdly low. For instance Fanstoys Apache for $61 shipped. Typical signs of a scammer trying (in vain) to cash in before the negative feedback and complaints come trickling in and Ebay shuts the account down.

    He's on the bad sellers list. Try to consult this thread when considering a new China Ebay seller.

    Doesn't negate our points. If there are conditions, copy and paste them here. Doesn't seem like too much to ask for.

    You can do it then. It's not too much to ask for either?
