    Hi guys n gals

    I was wondering if anyone had seen these images on any websites - I tried a search and it came up fruitless - was an item I won on ebay but it hasn't appeared and the pictures are a bit to good to be a non collecting amature to be honest..

    If I can find a source of the images it will assist me in my dispute and getting my money back...

    Cheers

    Hope you've not been conned man, do you have a link for the auction? If not, who was the seller as someone here may have dealt with them before. Did the seller have other TF's with similar, or different backgrounds?

    Incidentally, nice score if they arrive.

    Those actually appear very Seibertronish...I'd check their galleries, see if it matches up.

    Man I hope not. As stated above, who is your Ebay seller? If it is indeed Ryan from Seibertron (based on SQ's statements), I have bought from him before on Ebay and he is a good dude. You might want to do a search of him in the bad ebay sellers thread in the ebay section (where this thread probably belongs ;) ).

    I hope it comes, and I hope you got a fantastic deal because that is a cool gestalt.

    link to auction

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....m=160232930217&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=006

    only noticed it in the dying minute and stuck a bid in - the last feedback as a seller doesn't bode well - paid with paypal anyway...

    The seller has been in constant contact through-out though, and he was selling a tracks with a similar looking style of photograph. I checked Seibertron's galleries and they aren't posed in the same way though they are a very similar style.. It was meant to arrive about 4 days ago.. though the UK postal system is not brilliant sometimes - i managed to contact the guy who left a neg and he paid by cheque and it was for a "blowpipe" gun..

    Hoping I don't have to go through all the dispute rubbish though .. was really looking forward to getting it as its probably going to be my last "big" purchase.

    I've noticed some people don't even bother to actually put real photos of the item on hand and just use pictures of it from over the net. This may be what happened here. So the only way you have to go about it's quality is the description, not the pictures. Some people are just lazy that way, or maybe don't have a digitial.

    Keep us updated.

    The answered question at the bottom gives me some hope anyway - surely if he was going to con someone he would advertise it complete... and postage worldwide and not just to europe..

    Fingers are firmly crossed anyway!

    man, that's a steal for a monstructor. assuming you do get it, I'd just like to mention that if the weapons are the same as dinoking, I got a repro'd set of them from aloysha's corner for under $25.

    Cool glad you picked it up. After reading your second post last night, and getting the link to the auction, it definitely isn't ryan from seibertron, he lives in Chicago :lol 

    Looks great and great deal on it. Enjoy bud!
