    Hi, I have had the same issue with this guy as well and am challenging via Paypal. How did it play out for you?

    Is alexmeng78 legit? I've noticed their items for sale are no longer visible on eBay.ca but are still there on eBay.com, a change from about a week ago where they were all visible on both pages.

    Yeah I ordered from them the first week of June only after checking their ratings they were all good. Got 2 3P astrotrains and still never mailed them out as of today can't file anything since expected date is August 26th. Came back today to see wall of negatives.

    They're legit, but I wouldn't say reliable. They've canceled my orders based on not actually having the stock they've listed before.

    Geez, are there any sellers that can be trusted? I think I might have to take a hiatus on purchasing from China and I will not pay for the prices in the US which are nuts... any advice for any reasonable reliable Chinese seller?

    Personally i only trust bababobo out of all the sellers. I think theyre from HK so it ships faster as well. Their prices are slightly higher but it's better than paying slightly less and getting scammed.

    Honestly they had the cheapest (legit) price of all on Master Made's Devastator at $235 and free shipping. It's where I got mine from.

    Dang it. My package, which I'm sure now is junk, is still bouncing around China.

    Same here. I would contact Ebay/paypal. Get your money back... I hate people... back to online stores only and if they are out of stock, it sucks to be me....

    Yep, ordered three FT items in a single order and got a loose shoulder cannon in a baggie. Is it better to use “item not received” or “return wrong item received?”
