    I bought a DX9 ko powerglide from 6hk666666 in November but it never showed. Just opened a case with him. I had a tracking number but like I say, it never showed up in the allotted time. I guess it may still show up but it’s not looking good. He’s agreed to credit but I would have preferred to get what I paid for.

    I bought Quakeblast from them last April and it was all fine. That's several months ago now, however.

    One negative feedback in the last year from a random new buyer is hardly cause for concern on it's own. And it was for a KO MP Shockwave, something I had to wait a good while to get a copy of from a VERY legit seller myself. No tracking updates after the first week is definitely frustrating, but also may not be cause for concern, especially given that this seller looks to have a very small operation, so may not be able to ship often. Still, if you don't see any updates after Monday night, definitely shoot them an email for updates, if they don't respond, open a case with Paypal directly.

    Hopefully that is the case there just using the slowest cheapest shipping method there is due to the low price.

    Finally got my cases against jaingyaoming and lilanqing closed out in my favor. Glad that's over with. Show-Z and Terry from know on. Didn't take me long to learn that lesson. Thanks for the help in dealing with this, definitely made things easier.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have some negative feedback to leave, if it will do any good.


    Thanks, Jason

    This guy is trying to sell a KO as an original 1984 and lying in the description, right? optimus prime g1 1984 | eBay

    I e-mailed him and he claims "the toy is not a knockoff the box is a replacement box".

    I call bs. I'd stay away from seller jeffery9393.

    Mp-46 from freemantoys has been stuck on
    Processed Through Facility
    HONG KONG GENERAL POST OFFICE

    In eBay since January 2nd at 9:00 a.m. I looked this status up on the internet and in the Hong Kong post website. it says to allow this status for at least 10 days, and after that you can assume that there were custom scanning errors in the package has been returned to the sender, but as the receiver we may not know this because Hong Kong post works only with the sender. The site says I should open a dispute.

    What is “Departure from outward office of exchange” ? How long it will take? – Tracking System for China Post Register Mail ,EMS ,ePacket

    Parcelsapp.com has the same status followed up with another at the same exact time stamp that says "departure from outward office of exchange HK GPO" This status was another I searched on Google to come up with the information stating to start a return. Freemantoys has YET to respond to a single message. I blatantly asked him why he isn't responding and still nothing. Should I call paypal, get this return going, and just order the freaking figure from BBTS? 2nd attempt going down in flames now.

    I'm still dealing with the fallout of my MP-46 order from djfungshing as well. Annoyingly, up until about a day or so ago, Amazon Japan had it available for $92USD shipped, 3-6 day international delivery. After filing a case with Paypal, suddenly djfungshing replied to me and spent a week begging and pleading for me to close the case so they could refund me after, only to then show some unknown tracking number from days prior to begging me to close the case. Gonna be real interesting to see what does show up in the mail from them. Either way, my Paypal case might have a resolution setup tomorrow.

    It looks likes Amazon Japan still has it for $103. What's delivery to America from Amazon Japan look like? I can't even read the site.

    I'm thinking of filing a case with freemantoys.

    Extremely fast. When they ship from Japan, it takes a day or so to arrive to the DHL hub in Ohio(?), and from there they overnight or 2-day it to you via DHL.

    edit: hit the translate to english button on the amazon jp site

    For official Tomy Takara releases, I always check and buy from Amazon JP first before resorting to eBay. :p

    Agreed. Amazon JP almost always has the best price on official releases, and shipping is faster than many domestic sellers.

    Wow I'm looking and they're cheaper than any of the eBay deals Ive snagged on these beast wars MPs. Are there any additional taxes or tariffs at checkout?

    Shipping is like ~$10/1200 yen. I'm in no sales tax Oregon, but I you can initiate the checkout process and see if tax is added on to the state you are shipping to.

    No, it's just a ridiculously misleading thing that ebay does :rolleyes: 
    The reviews are linked to the item not the seller. But it reflects badly on the actual seller of that item if the reviews are for a known bad seller or negative in any way. I'm not saying the seller of that listing is good, just that the reviews aren't for them...

    I bought an couple of items and was shipped a similar but incorrect color variant. He made it right and in the end I would buy from him again. Everything was packed adequate to make it to me, but I ordered small items.
