    I did the same thing, having the USPS investigate and locate the package (still haven't heard back from them yet). But I didn't wait, I called eBay this morning and told them about the recent negative scam feedback and after 5 minutes or so on the phone they approved my refund.

    Anybody have any news on seller zpdlna802? User seems to have disappeared off eBay. Have two orders through them, so I was curious if anyone had heard anything.

    He's nice! Similar to their Prowl and Bluestreak, although his shoulder wheels are on top rather than at the back.

    That's not a good sign that the tracking just stop after the Aug 21st. Now I'm a little worried for the both of us. I would get in connect with chlifg1008_8 on eBay and see what's up. You should have had your item by now

    Was just gonna ask this myself! Two orders with them, one showing similar to @TheImmortalMoo, the other slightly different.

    Went with them as their feedback was 2600+ and excellent. Hmmm.

    You can officially remove johansson58 from the bad list. Dude's communication is not good, but I got my stuff.

    Had been watching some items on ABC toyshop123. Now all items have ended and nothing shows up in sellers other items. Thinking he's turned scammer. Some people are waiting on items might want to check with ebay.

    Zpdlna802 listings also show no results

    Still waiting on my resend of Quietus from him (the first SpeedPAK shipment got lost in customs, so he resent it through China Post). It's waiting on its China/Canada flight now. I'll update when I get it.

    Yeah I can’t see any feedback for abctoyshop123 anymore either, definitely not good news. My TE-01 is supposedly in the country now, we’ll see what I get

    Current thumbs up for both faithtoptalk and bodajin_7 - received items from both quickly to the UK and at surprisingly low prices (received Jinbao's Gravity Builder upgrade & MFT MF-26 Sharkticons from them respectively, both a fair bit cheaper than I could find from other sellers at that point)

    Dammit!!! I was really hoping this would work out. Delivery is scheduled between tomorrow and the 23rd. I'm thinking I should just pony up and get one from TFsafari.

    I have a gut feeling if this turns out to be bogus it's gonna be a harder fight. Something was shipped.

    Guess I'll throw my two energon in (see what I did there? I'm one of y'all now lol).

    Ordered a Gen Toy Gt08a Sarge (Streetwise) from szzdjwl-9 and got a shipment notice/tracking the next day. Great so far. Wish he/she had more than just the one.

    Also ordered Gt08b Chopper/blades and gt08d groove from mascotzone at the same time as szzdjwl-9's order. Still no update passed being paid as of 2-3 days ago. *concern*

    5BC7EE01-E70F-4BCB-9F30-F7AC0882D7F7.jpeg Great, I just got scammed :( 

    Pleasr add ylsx1986_2 to the bad sellers list.

    He started off responsive and felt like a real seller. I swear I saw him in the good sellers list, but it isn’t there now so I guess I was wrong. Anyway, he was supposed to sell me an MP Loudpedal.

    I got fake Legos :/

    eBay Feedback profile for chlifg1008_8 might have gone rouge after-all. A new Negative feedback pop up saying he had sent a fake item.

    Just my luck to buy off him just a few weeks before he turn bad.

    Wonder if I will get my IT Megatron at all now?

    I have a sinking feeling in my gut about them now....crap. Will Ebay Refund if this happens? When(IF!?) mine arrives I am going to film the entire process to make sure I haven't been scammed, and if I have going to Ebay with footage.

    EDIT: I also contacted them asking if it is normal for there not to be an update to postage after three (ALMOST FOUR!) weeks...

    Abctoyshop123 definitely needs to be taken off the good list and put on the suspect list.
    I ordered a Maketoys Downbeat. The tracking has never updated past creating a label.

    Question, is it normal for reviews to show up in clusters? I've started noticing on one of my sellers that they get a bunch of reviews all at once every few days. Oddly enough it is usually on Mondays. Should i be concerned?
