    just noticed someones auction for a black LD cheetor was news. I thnik this auction itself is about 1 month old (and probably on for a repeat run) and the black cheetors seem to always be on ebay, there are atleast 2 on ebay now.

    I love cheetor and cats, but I think this has to be one of the least sought after LD figures.

    Since there is no discussion thread for this news article, I thought I would start one here.

    What do you guys think?

    At least a year old, I remember I was going to buy it from him and then got it for less than half this price. Same goes for his LD white moon I think I have had 3 of them and the total of those 3 never came close to his asking price, most of these .sg sellers are out to make as much cash as possible, I know MR has had some decent deals from him thou.

    lucky draws are pretty common on yahoo japan. maybe on ebay they are rarer. the cheetor ld isnt as rare as other lds. i totally agree with you.

    Ebay:
    Agreed. I was once offered this guy for $140 shipped from Japan. Sadly, I passed at the time because of my no LD policy for my own collection. Had I known I would develop such an enduring love for Beast Machines, I would have grabbed him.

    But yeah, he's up for sale pretty regularly. I'd imagine you could get him for under $200 if you looked around a bit.

    Not a fan of the mold, would still be good to own to polish off my complete BM collection though.

    I'd rather have the LD Black Fire Convoy or the LD GF Flame Convoy on E-bay right now, but this isn't a bad price for a lucky draw. Hmm...

    Hey! Now I've to call bull on this statement. :thumbdown 

    When it comes to "making as much cash as possible," Sellers from ALL nationalities are involved! I'd came across some Non-Singapore Sellers whom are also asking for kidneys for these LD pieces.

    Scalping is an international issue man, regardless of race, language or religion.



    ...Especially so since it's not a new auction. :sly:

    Talk to them on msn all they go on about is how much money they have and how they are living like kings. They buy from yhjp and mark things up 400% and also take frequant trips to jp.

    Quoted for truth. I like seeing out of the ordinary stuff in addition to the news, but this is a kinda older figure, and older auction, and they labeled as Beast Wars when its clearly Beast Machines.

    Verdict: Destro either needs to go back to school and learn his TFs, or is possibly on the take for posting an overinflated auction.

    Here you go. You too, quoted "Them" so its not fair to use the term "Most of these .sg Sellers."

    I can easily spot a few good Sellers from Singapore that has utmost integrity in selling so not MOST of these .sg Sellers are out on a scalping purpose.

    Of course, I'm not saying that they're not making $$$ but at the very least, NOT MOST/ALL OF THEM are making/scalping 400% off you. ;) 

    Some of these Sellers are only making a substantial amount to just cover their business costs & perhaps a little bit more. (Eg: How do you expect Sellers to go overseas then? Swim across the atlantic with the aid of a life buoy?)

    Also, let's not forget that Japanese Yen is especially strong in these times so all these contributes to the high costing as well. What about food & accomodation then? Japan is ranked Asia's TOP 5 most expensive place to be in thus everything's expensive. All this aside, do you think Japanese Sellers are gonna sell you a rare TFs at their cost? :sly: 


    No offense but now said, do you STILL seriously expect people to buy & sell you a limited model at Wal-Mart/TRU's pricing? If so, probably not in this life. :crazy:

    Well all of the .sg sellers I know do nothing but brag about how much they make off a single item, never did I say that everyone from .sg is a ripoff and such I know thats not true. Why would I expect things @ cost? Did I say they should make no money and sell everything for what they paid? Nope. I know they have to make a living and selling toys are insane prices is how they do it. Look at ksg's white moon he is selling it for $249, I have had 3 of these in my collection all which I paid 1000yen ea which is roughly around $12usd, I know for a fact he buys and sells on yhjp also which would make it easy for him to obtain one, with this being said he will make roughly $230 + whatever he overcharges on shipping. I don't buy from these guys as most stuff I can get elesewhere for much much cheaper, the scattered item that these people sell id rather be without than support them. Are all .sg sellers crooks? Not at all just a few of em.
