Pretty sure Baba is a very dependable eBayer.
Baba is one of the best there is.
He's just a little slow sometimes in the shipping department.
Baba is legit - have purchased several figures off them and no issues. Stick to Baba and Netclow (and Toyking1234 i think it is) and you'll have no issues with Chinese ebay sellers
I'm in UK and never paid customs from any of these sellers - usually get stuff in 8 - 20 days. I think sometimes they sell them knowing they have stock incoming in a few days time, which is when the tracking number sits there for a few days before it moves. I'd probably say 70% of the time mine have shipped within 2-3 days though.
I almost caved and got both this guy AND Grassor from Baba. First I checked to see if Guttur was still available though, and wow, he's dried right up, so I dodged a bullet there by not buying those two right away.
Good glad to hear, I just don't like seeing fellow fans getting ripped off is all.
Just don't get swoop.
This bit should've given you a bit of reassurance:
bababobo00712 (12454 )
99.8% Positive feedback
That's incredibly good for so many sales.
Good /bad news for you then. Many retailers in taobao have open PO for guttur reissue, eta mid 2018
Anyone know when the metallic version will be available?
No word yet but likely summer depending on when the chrome version saturates the market.
So you wouldnt have to worry about snarl.
Damn. I told myself I wasn't getting back into Dinos, but I bit on this guy at $136 shipped from Baba. It just looks so darn impressive. I can take my time trying to fill out the rest of the group as I'm going to try and be patient and wait for used Grasser & Guttur on the cheap (hopefully). Have Reximus Prime on the way and will look for a FTX version of Swoop as I'm not crazy about Giga's at the moment.
I'm curious to see how much their Swoop has been updated. It was clear it was MUCH further along than Graviter was at the time, but there was a lot of different feedback about it and a lot of tweaks people were suggesting. Wondering if they took it back a step to rework it a little, causing the delay. They don't take feedback lightly - the entire legs and tail was reworked on Graviter from the prototypes because of fan feedback asking for the dino legs to be pressed further into the bot legs.
Likely the chrome version, as they've said in the past that translating from the painted to chrome version required some mold alterations and they wouldn't be able to do the painted again.
I have to admit, I have not been following along at all. I had the FT dinos before I purged my collection a couple of months back. I really liked them, but as I start to buy back some things, I've decided I'd like to try something different. The price of Giga Sludge was too good to pass up to at least see what's up with these guys. If their Swoop changes enough, I may go for it instead of Soar. Thanks for the update!
I'm glad that Graviter is getting the go ahead. It looked better. Even though I don't like the color prototype of their Swoop, the size is impressive. Well over two feet wide in dinobots mode... ROTF Leader Jetfire is 18" long in jet mode and titan class figures usually max out at two feet tall.
Whoever ordered Graviter from Baba is he including the fire flame sword parts? My preorder with Robotoybase includes them.
