    Ebay's a great place for Transformers, but has anybody shopped at Ioffer.com and what do they think of it? Are they reliable? Prices seem a little more reasonable than Ebay's.
    I jointed the site last week but have not yet purchased anything there.
    Would like your inputs please.
    Again, it is Ioffer.com
    Thank you!

    So Ioffer is a great place? I just had an offer rejected for a MIB Prowl. He was asking $39 plus something shipped and I offered $34 shipped. Can't beleive that would be such a difference but oh well.
    Who's the best seller on ebay for Transformer G1s?

    Looking for a good dealer for Alternity transformers. Preferably in US... more preferably in CO so not to have to pay shipping.

    Not to side-track the thread but...

    Even cheap shipping now is 4-5 bucks, so that's a 10 dollar swing. A quarter of the price. If you want anything like tracking or insurance the swing gets even worse. I've been lowballed on so many offers where people want me to cut any money I could have made out of the offer. Heck I've been berated by someone that wanted me to basically lose money on the deal to give him free shipping.

    I meant locally so I could actually visit the store. Prefer to hand pick my tfs anyway.

    i see,,,you might want to find some people in the sightings forum and ask them personally if they know of any good places...that way you can narrow your search down.....thats what i would do at least...

    To answer my own question about ebay sellers, seller banthatrader with Digital Toys Inc is very good. He gave me free USPS Priority mail shipping on the Encore Skywarp&Thundercracker duel package. He shipped it Tuesday, and I just now received it in 100% perfect mint condition. I hope to buy more from him in the future.
