    Got any tips for shopping for Transformers? There is SO MUCH STUFF.

    Looking for some MP KOs that are from a fast reliable seller.

    Yeah, sometimes hard to find what you're looking for due to the sheer volume. The photo search option is actually pretty good and I recommend checking it out.

    As far as sellers, you can be a little more lenient on ratings than eBay. Sellers of around 90% or above are usually solid. Just do some due diligence and check the store page to view comments, etc.

    There are plenty of reliable KO sellers there, but fast they are not. It's generally 3-5 weeks before I get anything.

    I appreciate the heads up. I ordered a KO Ratchet and Shockwave to test the waters, if they turn out ok ill shoot for a KO Megatron.

    Any luck with 6hk666666 ? I'm tempted, but that 24% off has got me worried.

    I got my Double Dealer Upgrade kit from there, but this was a few months ago and it was legit. It came in about 3 weeks.

    One thing I've noticed is that some sellers show inflated prices and then "put it on sale" for what would be a normal price. i.e. Say a figure normally sells everywhere else for $75; some sellers will put it on at $100 just so they can put a big 25% OFF thing on it, and they're actually selling it for $75, competitive with everyone else. That's just a trick to get your attention, but it can be effective, even if it is the laziest Marketing ploy EVER. (Marketing guy here.....)

    Where you need to watch out is when they have that figure already at $75, and then it's 25% off and it's now $56.... Goes back to the old "If it seems too good to be true, then it's not" thing.....

    My Double Dealer Kit (I got a real dud of that one) from that seller was $19.11 and free shipping and the Soundwave filler kit was $13.49. BUT this was well over 6 months ago and I'm not sure how rare something like these would be or if they can keep the prices the same or similar. Most of the prices at the time were very similar so I wanted to choose a seller that looked more legit and that was it.
    It looks like this seller in particular raised prices. BUT they were reliable.

    The BSL one is coming out soon. It's rumored that BSL is just unique toys and they're trying to get rid if extra stock under a different name. They have the BSL toys version on Show Z Store:

    Anyone having issues with mr.brian2009 on Ebay lately? I ordered 2 figures from him and they both arrived broken. I contacted the seller about the issue and they were responding initially, but now, he refuses to answer any questions about addressing any solution for the broken figures. I've ordered a few things from his store before and never had issues (communication was great). It's been over a month now and he hasn't responded to any of my messages. Can't do anything with Paypal or Ebay for these orders because they were purchased a few months ago and have gone past the dispute window. Really odd...

    Did they stop communicating around the same time the dispute window closed? They could have been stalling. It may be worth contacting eBay or Paypal anyway. You could explain that they were working and communicating with you to fix the issue so you didn't think the dispute was needed and have since lost all communication with the seller. It is their policy that the buyer tries to resolve the issue with the seller before they get involved so you could argue you were following their guidelines. Worst case is they say no.

    I bought UT Challenger Battle Damaged version from this guy.

    Anyone buy from him before? Also says the item we'll arrive by Sep 30-Nov 16 when shipped. Then when I put down the purchase it goes "Hey be sure to see it by Nov 16."

    I hope I haven't been jibbed.

    Recently bought an item from baba, just curious how long it usually takes for him to ship after payment? And does he normally give a tracking number?
