    Ggz437, who had some really good and believable deals on FT Kup, Arcee, and Springer, already had 99% feedback suddenly took down ALL of their items for sale. Probably about to get hit with a bunch of negative feedback.

    Was watching this seller to potentially buy certain items, but while his prices weren’t outrageously cheap compared to the more obvious “gone rogue” sellers, one obvious red flag to me was the complete absence of positive feedback on sales of any FT products. It seemed odd to me that someone specializing in KO products could suddenly come into a load of hard to find FT figures and decide to offload them at a discount.

    Even if wenqiang201688 wasn't on the bad sellers list I still wouldn't touch this with the 10 foot greasy barge pole of suspicion :p

    I just made an order from kaichu-57, Megatron IT-01 .We wrote to each other, he has a lot of positive feedback and only one negative long ago. Today the shipping information has been updated and the package is moving.
    Someone had experiences with him?? , he seems to be affixed, not as the last few you've appointed! However I hope to well.

    I ordered Quakeblast from kaichu-57 this summer. It got returned because of post office shenanigans, but they kept in touch and sent it again with a new tracking number as soon as it arrived in China. I was really pleased with them.

    Ebay:
    With regard to chlifg1008_8 , I opened the dispute for a refund: KFC Simba Leo never arrived and the seller never deigned to respond and had provided a non-existent tracking code.
    ebay this afternoon writes: Unfortunately, we didn't receive valid tracking information from the seller. We're sorry you had a problem with your purchase.
    ebay tonight: he said, solving in my favor with a refund.
    I'm happy to get back the money, but less for having received Simba

    I regret not buying Planet X Asclepius / Perceptor for $34.99 from BBTS one year ago. :confused: 

    -Did a quick search on TFW2005 b/s/t hoping to get him for a similar price. No dice. o_O 

    -Checked eBay, best price available at 45.99 bones, not bad:
    Planet X Transformers FOC sensor PX-08 Asclepius Cybertron in stock | eBay :) 

    -Double checked this thread to see if the seller is legit on page 1, check.

    -Make sure I'm paying with PayPal, check.

    -Boom, ordered! Mirth and merriment will arrive between Monday, Dec 9, 2019 - Wednesday, Jan 22, 2020 :confused: 

    -But it will be arriving. :p 

    Thank you TFW2005 community for this thread! :thumb

    Similarly, I ordered Quietus from them, and it also got held up with postal faff and they tried again. It then worked fine. I also order a mini Shockwave, which arrived fine.

    Jumped on a FT-16M offered by ToyStrike before realizing it was a pre-order. They were more then understanding and processed a refund no problem!

    Bought Masterforce toon accurate Takara Legends LG 60 Overlord Giga / Overlord Mega, only 39.99 shipped! There's actually a few from sellers on the reliable seller list that have it listed for roughly 40! Must be warehouse-warming overseas? :eek: 

    ~$90 USD through like BBTS/TFsource was an easy pass for me in the past, but $40?! You got yourself a deal! :D 

    Will be neat to have Megajet and Gigatank with the proper wife / husband headmasters in their vehicle modes... Also just found out about Overlord Terra, the official combined robot mode of the Hasbro and Takara Overlords. :p 

    Got mine from:
    Transformers Takara TOMY toys Legends LG 60 Overlord Action Figure in stock MISB 4904810963967 | eBay

    Bought a couple times from that seller in recent months no problems, so I'm confident with this transaction. :thumb

    I ordered a blue NA Cosmos from linshan1975 a couple of ebay bucks deals ago. Needless to say, he sent me the green one instead of the blue one. However, he has been great on the return process so far, it's not over yet, but so far so good.

    For me anyway, a seller earns my respect on how they handle a problem much more than a smooth transaction.

    Anyway, thanks again @ChromeMagnus for the list, it is super helpful when purchasing from overseas sellers on ebay.

    Got my money refunded today from PayPal regarding my scam purchase from Maucat. At least he didn’t try and dispute.

    Sigh. I had a few drinks and ordered two stunticons on Friday. They supposedly shipped today. I should have read through here before ordering.

    Oh well, lesson learned.

    You may be one of the fortunate ones that receives what you ordered... but I don't think you should get your hopes up too high :confused: 

    Let us know either way though!
