    Yeah, his FansHobby trailer just dropped in price to $60.
    He's either clearance-ing to get out of the game, or he's gone rogue.

    Well as I pointed out @Seth Sunthay placed his order on 6/19, two days before I did and he received his order his item. Although I'd like to know when he received it and where he lives. That would give me a better idea on when to expect mine, if it is coming. Based on positive feedback dating all the way up to yesterday, It seems he just turned rouge within the last day or so, long after I placed my order.

    Thanks. What did your USPS tracking look like? Did it show each part of the shipping progress or did it stop updating after "acceptance" and just showed up at your door on June 6th?

    Ok. That's what my tracking updates did. Well, that means there's still hope for me then. It just alarmed me because I've never seen my updates do that before....ever.

    I am going back to baba for badcube streamroll and recon for the next ebay flash sale. It is a pity that he didn't have them in stock during the flash sale on 06/29 or else there is no point to go to other guys. :(

    That's my only real issue with baba. He's slow to stock new products. Outside of that he's fantastic. I really wanted to get Badcube Steamroll and Recon through him but as you pointed out he didn't have it in stock during the 6/29 Ebay flash sale like others did. As a result I ordered from a seller who actually didn't have Recon ins stock (even though he listed that he did) until today thus delaying the shipment of my order for over a week.

    gud_chh5 finally received his stock of Badcube Recon today and is shipping them out. After a week and 3 days my tracking number is finally active. Badcube shipment delay or not it is rather shameful and unprofessional on his part for him to list an item for sale that he didn't actually have in stock yet. The very least he could have done was list it as a preorder.

    Happy for you, bro. I hope my seller is in the boat as yours but the signs are not looking particularly good at this moment.

    I’d gladly have gone with baba too, if he’d had MMC Calidus Luminus. As it was, this was the only guy who had that figure in all of eBay at the time.

    The weird thing is how this isn’t following the typical scammers. The prices are still reasonable on the items he’s selling. There’s no response to messages, and no movement on the packages, when usually there’s at least some attempt to drag it out with responding to drag it out & shipping something fake.

    Dammit, I ordered Graviter with raona222 on the 27th, after having gotten a reply to a message I sent and reading the reviews here. At USD130 it was the cheapest I could find but not quite ridiculius yet. However I never received any tracking data to begin with. Guess I won’t be buying that $25,- MPP-33 Inferno KO :(

    You never got a tracking number? Did you send him a message about that?

    Nope, but I thought I saw someone else who never did with raona222 and still got a package after about 25-30 days, so I thought I’d try anyway. But this latest news and the current prices have me worried... I already lost a package to someone who actually did get me a tracking number, but that package has still not left Beijing after 2 months and Paypal already gave me the money back. (The user was later listed here as scammer, so I’m not going to look up the name.)

    I so badly want to try that MPP-33 though.. I’ve sent a message to raona222 pointig out this thread and askigg for a reply ‘so I can tell you guys they’re still legit’. If there is a legible response I’m chancing it! :)

    Btw, I still need to get money back from Paypal for one fenqiuxiang sale. He actually had the nerve to reply to Paypal with a fake tracking number so now they seem to be waiting to see if anything arrives. While if they used the number they could see it had already arrived before I even complained. Sigh... the end date before which fenqiuxiang needed to reply was pushed back a third time, now to July 24th!
