    dude, you bought a box with some plastic shit inside of it.


    you cannot even see what robots are included...so good luck with your "awesome deal"

    personally i would not waste $30 shipping that box of crap to myself.

    Hmm. I can make out Onslaught, Vortex and Brawl but cant see what condition they're in. Vortex does'nt look great and the sellers feedback isnt inspiring.

    Gotta agree with the majority - I wouldn't have spent $30 on that off that pic alone. God only knows what's broken/missing.

    well, I can clearly see Brawl, Vortex, and Onslaught and the 99.2 feedback isn't that bad. You'll be fine, good luck with your item and update this thread once it arrives. Sometimes you gotta take risks on ebay, i've been lucky so far that all my risks worked out but waiting for the package sucks lol:lol

    looks like you have taken a gamble, without evidence on your side. Did you ask him if things are complete and not broken? I know before jumping on a "steal deal" you should really make sure its not a fake. Good luck though, you still have a chance, let us know how it turns out.


    edit:: chrisr.. the only thing I would be skeptical about in his feedback, is that a lot of the negative feedback stems from the same reason: the discrepancy between the description of the state of the item, vs. the actual state of the item. Hence why I am concerned for OP.

    It looks like at least the three main figures for FP Bruticus are in there, hopefully they'll arrive packaged well and in good shape. If so, good score homey!

    yeah you can make out the 3 bots but as stated your not sure of condition. and it may end up being a decent buy but you wont know until you get the item! i guess you cant really complain either as its sold as seen

    It says all auctions are in new condition and that there are 5 robots that form Bruticus Maximus. If 5 figures that form Bruticus Maximus aren't present or any of them are broken and you're paying via paypal I can't see it would be hard to prove it to claim a refund. So it seems like being worth a shot to me. The description probably wouldn't cover hands feet or energon stars, but if this is being bought for the upgrade kit that would hardly matter.

    I gotta go with Bogatan here. I'm choosing to be optimistic here. I'll post a pic of him when I get him hopefully proving you all wrong. And yes this is for the upgrade. Would I like to have Blastoff and Swindle? Maybe to sell. I don't give a fuck about MISB or perfect boxes.

    Thanks XJ.

    I hope its all there as well, but I cannot help but to have my doubts, I will be quite satisfied to be proven wrong on this.

    His feedback is fine too btw.. I was expecting to see like 10 fb after reading this.

    2 negs and 480 positives in a month... with over 10,000 fbs, maintaining 99.2 is pretty damn good actually. If theres even anything wrong, which I doubt there will be personally, Id bet my buffalo nickel the seller would work with you.

    Nice steal in any event. Minus the shipping, the seller is making like 10, 15 bucks tops. Really, it would still be a steal if it were just the 3 of em too.

    paypal ain't backing a fraud sale when it says "as is" in the description. Pretty obvious it isn't new.

    My bets on you getting the low end of a deal.

    The reason I'll be paying $30 in shipping is because this guy doesn't ship outside of Canada. I had a member here from Canada bid for me. It's gonna be $14.75US for him to get it in Canada. Then another $10 - $15 for him to ship it to me in New Hampshire. I unfortunately have to pay for it to ship twice, but if this all works out I will have gotten him for less than original retail.
