    I was majorly shafted by qintianyu-ming on eBay recently, avoid this f*cker like the plague! Thanks for the Lego-man you douche!

    Either that or Fanstoys standards have slipped of late ;)  That said, I had to laugh when the Lego thing arrived.

    Only got my refund three days ago after endless weeks of jumping through eBay hoops, oh well!

    Is there a list on this thread names can be added to?

    Me too, he has ghosted me in messages, created a shipping label but never shipped the item, disputing it on eBay but contacting PayPal now

    Seems the advice on here is to bypass eBay and go direct to PayPal - if that’s the case, I’d have saved myself about a fortnight!
    Can anyone comment if that’s the case?

    It really varies by situation, but typically, I try Ebay first and then move to PayPal based on what happens around it.

    It sucks we got duped on this, when I went back and checked his reviews I couldn’t believe I made an impulse buy as poorly as that. After reading your message it sort of relieved me that at the time of purchase he was less obvious.

    Wish I knew about this forum before now, I may have just fallen victim to toyclub89 for a few additions that I haven’t been able to find... they had a total of 3 that I needed, good reviews so I figured why not, after reading through here I am nervous now but still hopeful

    PayPal is strongly recommended as the main go-to for disputes, as their typical responsiveness is much better than eBay's. However, if you've already opened a dispute with eBay, PayPal may not help much so as to not conflict with eBay's arbitration process. A rare exception to this would be if you paid using eBay bucks or other reward certificates, as eBay claims to have more direct oversight of these, however, you are generally still able to open a dispute with PayPal in these cases anyways.

    Negative feedback starting to show up for toyclub89. I'm glad I stayed away. Those prices were too good to be true. I paid more with one*day_bid, but I'm confident that I'll get it.

    Pretty unfortunate, but hopefully a few more people still luck out and get what they ordered, or barring that, at least a really good Lego figure? Personally, I don't think I'd even be all that mad if instead of random KO Lego men I got KO Kreons of the same characters I ordered.

    Just came here to post about the negative feedback on toyclub89 and saw many people have reported it already. Glad I stayed away. Hopefully everyone's refunds will go smoothly.

    I'm fairly convinced they're the exact same seller, and suspect they might either have a couple other accounts as well, or somehow partnered with a few others, too. Haven't bought from any of them yet, namely due to the extensive list of items for sale despite their relatively low feedback score and age of accounts. Just sorta gives off an extreme middleman ordering service vibe

    There's a guy in the Fanstoys FB group who ordered from yellowb (FT Maverick I believe) and got him, if that helps.

    Yeah I know, me too - I was all like ‘well if it’s a scam then oh well’ - fast forward to six weeks of mounting frustration (partly at myself!)

    Ooh, snap

    It is better to file your refund claim through Paypal so that you got your money back in 10 days or less.
    See the instructions in the first post of this thread.
