    Its not all their feedback false. I have bought from several scammers items that arrived well packed and on time, for close to nothing. Only for them to declare rogue several months later. They do this all the time, they sell products of minor or low value for several months to accumulate enough positive feedback, and then they go rogue when they start to sell loads of expensive stuff. As far as I understand Ebay doesnt want to lose funds before they have to. You posted a pic of hxufen. I was Scammed by him the previous month. After he turned Rogue and the negative feedback avalance snowballed out of control I contacted Ebays customer service to ask what should happen since there is no chance I am receiving my items (he had gonne rogue already and the tracking number didnt show any life for a month), here is our dialogue copy pasted with the Ebay customer service:

    "Thank you for contacting eBay Customer Service about the item that you purchased. I’m sorry to hear that you haven’t received the item yet, don't worry I'm here to help you and provide you options on what you need to do. My name is _____ your eBay specialist and I’ll do my best to help you today.

    _____, I checked your account and I can see here thatindeed the tracking number of the item is not updated yet (Pilot00s note: After a month!). However, I see here that the estimated delivery date for the item 262973704094 is within August 23, 2017- September 26, 2017. I highly suggest that you wait for tracking number to be updated and the item to arrive within the estimated delivery dates first. I am positive that your item is already on its way to you and there is a big possibility for you to receive it any time within the estimated delivery date.

    In case the item will not arrive by September 26, 2017, you can open an ITEM NOT RECEIVED case on September 27, 2017 to get a refund. You don’t have anything to worry, because you are covered by eBay Money Back Guarantee."

    To this, I asked if they honestly believed, that after receiving 30 negative feedbacks in two weeks (At that time) that I would honestly receive my item and heres their answer:

    'Hello ______,


    Good day to you there in Greece!


    Thank you for contacting eBay customer service about! I understand how concerning it must be when. Don’t worry, this is ________ your eBay account specialist and it is entirely my honor to help you with your concerns today.

    ______, we will simply know if the item is fake or not if it has not arrive on the estimated delivery that is why we have a resolution center page and resolve issues between you and the seller at the same time you don't have to worry because you will not loose any amount here for you are covered by eBay money back guarantee.

    I’d also want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you today. Please let us know if you need additional help at any time as we're here for you. Thank you very much for your time and trust in eBay as well as for your loyalty.

    Please have a joyful week and good health with your family and friends!
    Thank you for choosing eBay, we value your business.'

    Utter PR BS. You will ask me why you went through their customers service before opening a case and didnt go through paypal? Because several days from that, I got scammed again and they immediately (4 days after I contacted them) they refunded me.

    Anyways, I opened immediately through paypal after the above BS and got the refund within a week. What I found out though is this: In my card statements (and you can see this into your paypal payments tab), when I got refunded by ebay (In the first case) I got the money through Ebays Londong financial offices. When I got it from Paypal, I got it from the seller itself. My guess is that Ebay is playing the BS dance in an attempt to delay disclosing funds on so many cases. Paypal somehow might be able to lockdown bank accounts or somesuch? Who knows? Perhaps someone has more insight since those are my only two (thankfully) cases that I needed to go the refund way.

    I was going to bite on both his Ratchet and Inferno, but like you said, it's gotta be a SCAM !!! Noticed some recent negative feedback, but some positive ones as well, so who knows ???

    Was digging through some misc parts and found these drills from a KO G1 Devastator fit Sqeeks rather well. Was never going to use them with Devy so I did trim the back end so they fit somewhat more flush to his arms.

    If those drills were, like, ten times that big, then we'd have a real Gurren Lagann situation on our hands.

    ...

    Custom idea.

    I've almost finished repainting/adding details to my black OSKO "Nemesis" Dinobots. So far, Nemesis Slug and Grimlock we given the most new paint. Here's a rough and ready picture below. If people are interested, I'll post better pictures in a dedicated custom thread.

    This has been my experience, and it's why I just file with PayPal.

    Cheers, the lighting is awful, so it's hard to see the metallic purple and gun metal parts. I'll take better pics when I can, but as I'm in the house early morning/evening, they're isn't really any sunlight, so I have to wait for the weekend.

    Here's another rough picture of this WIP repaint. I'm probably going to change the gold back "stripes" to either silver or gun metal and I might add a Decepticon symbol (but into two halves) to adorn the beast mode forehead. Pictured alongside him is the Zhan Jiang OSKO Grimlock.

    Is there any difference between the original release and the KO version?

    What do you mean? It's as black as the ace of spades.

    Just got my latest shipment from Sirtoys! I had to wait a fair bit after my order (probably for Paul to locate and get the shipment ready), but the actual shipping was super fast! About 2-3 days! Benefits of living "just across the water" from Paul in Asia, I suppose. The tracking email actually came before it was delivered, which was a surprise for me!

    I'll take some pics soon.

    Hey all -- are there common KOs that are better than the originals, that are obvious first purchases for a new MP-scale collector?

    I'm thinking of Takasa Tony's MP Tracks, with the improved joints and rubber tires, etc.
