    Yeah it is sad but looks like he'll still be around, I wonder why aliexpress won't allow him to sell transformers any more.. seems odd. Copied his message below..

    "
    Dear friend, I m Billy.My store in Aliexpress has opened for around 5 years,and I m so appreciate for your trust and surrport during this time.Unfortunally I have to say goodbye to you because this web don’t allow me to sell transformers anymore.My store ll close on 6/15th.So for return,I open a sale day, which means the last day for me to sell items on Aliexpress.Dont worry about the service,I ll do my best.The sale days begin on 6/15th.And thank you again! If you want buy TF in the future,you can visit my Ebay Store:Madeinch Store http://stores.ebay.com/madeinchstore,My new store is also preparing.

    His Taobao store is still running and adding new products, so it's just AliExpress instead of all out shutdown.

    I wonder if Hasbro started going after these stores and sellers all of a sudden?

    Does anyone have a link to his aliexpress store?

    Looks like it's already down. And about 1 hour ago I checked (without knowing this thread), it was still opening, with everything 11% off. I was wondering: why there is a 11% off for everything? some celebration?

    His store has been down and open a few times in the last few weeks. I managed to see he was up last week and put in an order. But now his store is gone and worry I won't get my order. There has been no acknowledgement of my order from unclebilly. I got this email this morning about his closing sale.

    Huh, didn't know that was the same guy as Johosontony on Ebay. At least we can still get stuff there which is where I've bought from him.

    Damn, missed everything. Guess I need to find somewhere new that sells the Ocean decals now.

    Edit - OK, weirdly his ebay items don't show up on ebay.co.uk but hopefully I'll be able to order from the US store.

    Ebay:
    This happened to me with babaobo's store, but he does ship to the UK too.

    If you're logged into ebay.co.uk and then eBay.com too with the same account, you can either add to your watch list from .com after using Google to find the shop (my .com seemed to switch to .co.uk upon searching in eBay itself) or find the shop in Google and look at one item - that then appears in your UK eBay as items recently looked at and lets you buy it and explore the shop from UK eBay site.

    No idea why that was how I had to do it, but while I could see the shop in .co.uk it just has 0 items for sale :confused:

    I think you have to pay more for visibility on the international sites.
