    in the words of the those immortal sages, C&C Music Factor, "Things that make you go hmmm...."

    PP01 Masterpiece Optimus G1 Prime Transformers I-Gear - eBay (item 230550002801 end time Nov-19-10 11:25:10 PST)

    basically $17 USD and free shipping for a Faith Leader... wth... the seller has 0 eBay cred, made the account a few days ago, and 2 people have bid on the auction. auction says that there are over 10 of these...

    smells like scam, right?

    i sent a msg to the seller today, but no reply. additionally, i clicked "buy it now" and saw the ebay guarantee message stating this purchase - if made through paypal - would be covered. however, if you read the terms closely the guarantee doesn't cover contraband. and in this case, the faith leader - if contested by either party - is actually a counterfeit toy, i.e. contraband. therefore, the ebay guarantee would be null...

    but still... $17 bucks to gamble on a Faith Leader...

    what's your verdict, tfw? :)

    you would still be covered under the buyer protection policy. Tangible, trackable items are covered. They are actually talking about illegal stuff like drugs guns etc...
    The 0 feedback rating is what turns me off. Basically your looking at giving your money to this guy and in a few months getting your money back. If you want to lend me money for a month LMK ;)

    This. you may get your money back but is the risk worth the potential hassle.
