    Do you guys even check your "facts"?? I just checked his auctions, and alot of them are free shipping, let me tell you, that really is alot of money for shipping. The highest one for shipping he had was $25 to ship a Fort Max body, which is pretty spot on, and if any of you guys are talking about international prices you may want to read the description, Express International, not cheap, starts off at $35.50(if I remember correctly).

    I heard that if Wheeljackslab shows up at Botcon that someone was gonna hit him with a pipe for ripping them off. Just sayin'. Apparently it's like that with Wheeljackslab. Isn't there a list of folks that that dude has screwed?

    I never had issues with him and i made some $significant$ purchases from him. But as a Canadian you have to make a pretty large purchase to justify the shipping. He does not overcharge us for shipping, he just won't ship without signature and tracking.

    I too have stopped shipping through first class international and my foreign customers have been nearly nonexistant because International priority is $25.50 to start, and raises quickly. Also, I've only ever had 1 problem with Wheeljackslab over the past 12 or so years. He accidently sent me a Blurr arm guard for the wrong side, he fixed it right away, had me send it back to him, and sent me the correct one.

    Hm. I've never dealt with wheeljackslab myself, but every transformers site I go to that has an ebay thread has horror stories about them.

    The dude's definitely around but I know MAJORITY of his customers would wish him dead. :lol 

    He's like GenZhao/KOToys. While some people like him, others doesn't.

    I did business with him numerous times without issue, until he sold me a junker Spinister advertised as 9.5/10. Lost me as a client from that point on.

    ^ That's unfortunate to know... :redface2: 

    I hope you raised a PayPal case against him & got your money back.

    Years ago, I bought 1 thing from him and paid with a money order. 3 weeks later, no item. I emailed him complaining and stating how I paid, including the item # which I included on the MO. After a few emails back and forth of me bitching, I received the correct item.
    I promptly opened a paypal account, but have not bought from him. I find his reserve/BIN prices WAY TOO HIGH, and his descriptions and pictures lacking.

    My experience is that if things go smoothly, it's just that. It's only when you have any sort of issue wjl can be difficult to deal with.

    I almost dealt with him only to be put off like most here with the killer shipping charge. It was more than the toy in question. :redface2:

    Every time I have delt with him it has been pretty smooth. Shipping is usually free or pretty cheap. On one occassion he left a part out that I had ordered, when I notified him of it he sent me the part the next day, no proof required. Everything is usually boxed really well and as described and I can say I've had over twenty transactions with him. I don't understand why so many people have problems with him.

    I've dealt with him plenty of times over the years, usually for the select few weapons/pieces I needed to complete a figure, some of which can be hard to find. I've never had any problems with him and would do business with him again.
