    Got my third figure from liujunling87_5 today.

    It is a KO MP-26 Road Rage. Arrived in an orange taped styrofoam box. Everything was packed well.

    Ordered it May 22 and arrived June 8.

    The figure, itself, I think is a little old, but that's obviously not the fault of the seller.

    Well, it was released in 2016.
    Nice how the KO version has rubber tires.

    Yeah, some of the metal pins/etc looked a bit weathered. I posted a few other issues with the figure in the KO MP-26 thread. Over all, satisfied with the seller and the price.

    That's why I went through paypal as well, since the original tracking number provided had an est delivery date out to July 1st. Right now Paypal is still reviewing the case and according to the resolution center, I should have a response NLT June 29th.

    Another im not getting with some ebay sellers. they list the same item at different prices. For example One Day Bid has the same LS03F optimus at three prices like in the links below:
    Black Mamba LS03F Abdominal Edition Transformers Optimus OP Column Action Figure | eBay

    Black Mamba LS03F Abdominal Edition Transformers Optimus OP column Action figure | eBay

    Black Mamba LS03F Abdominal Edition Transformers Optimus OP column Action figure | eBay

    like what is the difference? and which one is the real link?

    i've encountered that with hzj401 as well. somebody pointed out that item with lower prices might be old stock and that they are passing it to the buyer with their projected profit based on the old price, or the seller may have lost track of their pricing already. i say go for the lowest price IF your seller is really trustworthy. consensus on one day bid has been split so far. if another seller with a solid positive feedback here is offering LS03F, I'd rather go with that seller, and have peace of mind.

    I'd just go with the lowest TOTAL price including shipping. With one*day_bid, they place listings in different local markets. The Black Mamba links as an example, a couple are priced in British pounds and one in USD. I suspect they put up different listings to play with the base price vs total with shipping to catch a few ppl who don't shop carefully.

    PSA... for us Canadians, be aware that the refund policy is changing for PayPal Canada... they used to just refund you dollar for dollar in you native currency, but that's changing.

    My english sucks and am confused by the part about "including our currency conversion fee..." whether you'll be dinged twice now for exchange, once on purchase and another on refund, like how CC exchange works. Gonna call and get clarification tomorrow, but definitely keep in mind that the exchange rates are re-calculated on the date the refund occurs. It's no longer "I'll get all my money back" if I get scammed anymore.

    Deathwish arrived this morning thanks Baba, packed box in a bag in bubble wrap in a bigger box. he looks great no issues with paint, transforms easy enough but leg clearance is funny. I can't get his waist apart with button opened it up and everything made no difference.

    eBay Canada doesn’t charge taxes yet... so forgot about that. Yes, do factor any sales taxes in as well.

    Yea, my deliveries are hit or miss.. We should start another thread. Even though I am a box keeper, the other thing that bothers me is all the other damage that can occur to the item on impact, including chrome and
    weapons.. and pretty much anything can stress the plastic. I just got some Weijang Predacons from Ali Express and I have had to cut them out of the shipping box because of the damage, and Amazon using bubble mailers instead of boxes, thats not cool.

    I've had a package stuck on this status:
    • Jun 5, 2019
    • 14:30pm
    • Processed Through Facility
    • ISC CHICAGO IL (USPS)
    eBay still says it is expected to be delivered on Monday, June 10 (that obviously didn't happen).

    Is this something to be worried about or just slow USPS pickup from customs?

    I just had a package stuck on "processed through Beijing, etc." for almost 7 days straight. Then all of a sudden it was in San Jose. I wouldn't panic yet.

    I've definitely had packages freeze on the China side before. I've just never had one freeze on the U.S. side after it showed up in the USPS tracking system.

    Still waiting on parts for my graviter from one*day_bid, how long did parts take to get to you from asking for them?
