    Ebay:
    hello, I buy from Italy.
    I bought last year from netclow , TFC Hades and then TFC Road Caesar, one by one, and I never had any problems, he sends for $ 1 and his packages are stamped with Dutch Post and I arrive in about 20 days without pass through customs and without additional charges.
    last month I bought from chlifg1008_8 and the package you have to arrive by 13.11 but the tracking number is non-existent and after my purchase, 15.09, on ebay in many have left negative and angry feedback and he does not respond.
    Also ahbj1981-9 does not respond to the message after the last month I bought a transformers: your package has been lost or has returned back from the center Chinese sorting. He said he sent it back to me but I didn't hear from him again.
    I have seen that many Chinese sellers since the summer have started to have a lot of negative feedback, especially in October, because of China's National Day, the post office is closed for a week ... mystery !!!

    do you know jinwen1212 ? did you buy from him?

    Never mind those, you could do with better shelving! I mean, really, who'd display their Transformers on those things?! :rolleyes:

    So, something strange is happening with the tracking on my order from 8hk4428 on eBay.

    On the the 27th of Oct it said the item had left overseas but then on the 3rd of Nov it said again the item had left overseas, then on the 6th it says the item is still in Beijing? I hope this is not a bad sign, I'm already dealing with a rouge seller as it is, don't want another one.

    I would check every day now maybe twice. Return to sender and departed to be destroyed are options now.

    i see yeah, thanks. He has some stuff i'm interested to but i don't really feel too confident about it, and ebay says it'd take almost a month for it to come so i'm reluctant

    Happy to report I finally won the case against xchzhh9999
    It took a while. PayPal customer service were extremely slow and inefficient.
    At one point they closed the case and even ruled against me because of a technicality, a mistake on their part. You can bet I set them straight. In the end they offered their apologies.

    One more rogue seller goes down. One billion to go.

    Maucat_2 is a confirmed scammer. Received a plastic Yeti cup lid instead of the DX9 war in pocket Dinobots. He already changed his account name to azjedb8. PayPal dispute is filed.

    Gonna give you guys a tip. If you know they are a scammer, open a ticket with eBay as wrong item sent...they contact buyer. If buyer doesn’t reply in three days they auto refund you. I’ve done it with all recent scammers, regardless of whether I received anything. Worked with many items from chao, lui, and abj.

    how is it sinking to their level? You know you’ve been scammed and it gets your money back faster.

    maucat 2's account also became azjedb9 now, so both should be placed on bad seller list

    Does anyone have any suggestions on a reliable seller for the silver or white outlined decepticon logos in varying sizes? The peel and stick kind, not ocean slide or paper. I'm running low and all the listings I see either just seem to have the solid purple kind or it's not clear as to what it is in the listing's pictures. Toyhax has a nice variety, but they're all paper and way to pricey for what you get anyway.

    Now before everybody gets upset about another scammer, here's what it came with ;)

    In the words of a famous philosopher, can you tell what it is yet?

    IMG_6595.jpeg

    It makes these :D 

    IMG_6598.jpeg

    Which makes this :cool: 

    IMG_6606.jpeg

    While building-blocks-half-price isn't strictly speaking a Transformers seller, though they do have some for sale, I thought I'd share this with you as it made me happy building it and I wanted to share the joy :p

    See how happy he is?! :D
