    Ebay:
    Hi all! Anyone bought from Ministry of Toys on EBay? I'd heard good things and they've got lots of good feedback, but an Overlord I bought and paid for (got their "payment received" email and tracking info from Malaysian post) from them on IOffer a couple days ago is still listed on EBay - same toy. I watched the eBay auction end on it's own early this morning ( no bidders) and now it's back up with a changed description (3 week shipping) but the same pictures. I emailed them about it already just to see what's up and I'm thinking/hoping that it's merely an oversight, but has anyone else dealt with them? How'd it turn out?

    EDIT- as soon as I posted that he responded that he's on vacation and just hasn't closed the eBay one down is all, and he'll be back and ship it out tomorrow. So I guess that's cool :)

    Hi

    That seller is Derek and his shop is located in Kuala Lumpur Time Square there. When I was in Malaysia that time, I always visit his shop and got good deals from him. He may be on the trip to Japan or holiday with his wife. Don't worry about it.

    I saw that overlord offer but the box got a tear on it.

    Cool, thanks! He's got some other stuff that I'd like but I want to see if the overlord arrives in one piece first.

    I have seen that overlord in ioffer.com and ebay for quite awhile, maybe the price is too high until noone dare to buy.

    you can email him and ask him questions/photos and he will answer. I am more concerned with
    1. The connectors of the mechanical hands.
    2. any stressmark/cut on any of the hinge esp the wing and cone
    3. Any rusty part.
    4. Are the powermaster in dancing mode when you shake it in the air?

    Well, he said "unused" - I take that to mean it's darn near mint, and his messages to me when I asked about it mentioned no issues. The box has a hole but whatever - I mainly just want a perfect bot. I'll let ya know when it arrives if it had any problems, but honestly my main concern is it actually arriving - I trust the seller so far, heard nothing but good things - but the post offices between here and there? Not as much. But his feedback seems to indicate that other folks have been pleased, so I'm thinking I will be too.

    ^It seems like I bought the excact same Overlord shown from MOT...:eek: 
    Not sure weather it's meant for you or me...:sly2: 
    Hmm...gotta ask the seller, then. :confused: 
    don't worry if he says yours is on the way it most probably is..
    Awesome piece, nonetheless.

    :confused: :confused: :confused: 

    Now its getting confusing...

    W_S-X, did you end up buying the same thing from MOT? (D-307)

    Or did you haul in an European Overlord?

    got my jpn overlord from him too way back, but in person.

    i think the shop which used to be in SG had some bad rep in regards to online biz waaaaaaay back in early 00s in regards to black gon ginrai? but seems to be legit and on the up n up since then. dont think he'd screw over by selling something that has been sold. and even if he messes up would rectify the prob (cuz he constantly resells jpn vintages and there have been a few overlords that have gone thru the shop).

    ^I bougth the Japanese version. The description of the box tear on the front is the same...but I checked with MOT and he mentioned that he has a spare version at hand...I guess the pics used is rehashed, hence the confusion/ doubt and scare...:( 

    ^Yup...he seems to have cleaned up his image since..:D 
    Even managed to let me pay in installments for mine..;) 
    All's good, and according to plan, I shuld collect my Jap Overlord from him just in time for a Christmas pressie..! :D

    Good for you guys who have great experiences with MOT. My experience with his branches (Robotmaster) has been abysmal. High inflated prices (including MOT - Device Label Blaster for RM280?? You gotta be kidding me!) only well to do individuals can afford. The only thing that they are selling cheap are their Gundams.

    yeah, their x label stuff arent cheap for some reason (compared to the rest of the gang started locally). i have a feeling he still uses some contact from SG days (while local guys use local hasbro/ex-hasbro contact)

    he prolly has better jpn contact tho, especially for higher end/vintage stuff compared to, say, famitoy. i got my overlord for rm1.5k for stuff so basically i'd say their 1k-2k range stuff is fair. their rm4-500 boxed stuff oso ok lah (but i dont look at those since i prefer loose).
