    I have been watching Ebay for a figure I had stolen from me recently along with a bunch of other stuff...you all know the story by now...
    Anyways...here is the pic I had posted in my sales thread...

    [​IMG]

    Here is the ebay auction...

    Transformers Energon Megatron New Rare | eBay

    Notice the damage on the corner of the box?

    Coincidence or what?

    Well the item is located in the same state as me which is wierd since HybridPrime lives in Indiana...but I posed the same question to my fellow members over in the MN sightings thread, and it turns out that a local guy (that I know and trust) bought this figure last weekend at Springcon...Which means he was most likely face to face with Hybrid Prime.

    Yeah, looking at the details on the two pics it really seems that it is the same Megatron. I hope you filled out the postal fraud form. This is such a bad mess for everyone involved.

    I have no doubt it's the one you sent off. My auction BTW ;D which has been canceled. The dude was selling all his transformers stuff for asking prices and other stuff for way too cheap.

    Did he have ANYTHING that could help track him down or ID him? A business card? A sign? Do you recall his name? Could you pick him out of a police lineup? Every little bit helps.

    So HP drove 9 hours to unload our stuff at Springcon last weekend?!?! Maybe whoever ran the con would have some info on the dealers (obviously including HP)....

    I've got the dealer's info and I am working with the Con folks to see if we can get ahold of him. I don't want to post too much as I'd rather not have the wrong guy thrown to the Sharkticons, he didn't seem like a transformers collector and may have just bought all this stuff off our con-man HP

    Recall we had a few members saying it was HP's druggie ex roommate who used his SN to do all theses deals; it may very well be the druggie roommate.

    So his ex-roommate was at his home to collect packages from 36 members and not one made it's way to Hybrid Prime, but instead, into the hands of someone that doesn't even live at that address? Sneaky or not, just seems unlikely and very suspect mail carrier behavior to deliver to someone who may have just been hanging around outside. Not to mention, the number or packages delivered to this address to someone that may or may not have been loitering in said lawn. I'm just saying.

    I would agree. It could be a cover story. One challenge when suing a person in a situation like this is that you need to know exactly who it is that you are suing. I don't even think we know who exactly it is to be honest.

    Ex-Roomate factor sounds suspicious enough. The fact we've had two different names, Billy and Jamze is also curious. Maybe two brothers planning this scheme?
