    I placed 2 orders on 6/4/17 and received them both today on 6/13/17, just 9 days later. One item went thru Los Angeles customs while the other went thru Miami customs. Neither one went through ISC New York customs like most of my orders from China usually do. This likely explains why I got them so fast.

    I received MP Masterpiece Clampdown with coin from chi0911282133 a new seller I decided to try out for the first time. Smooth transaction and pleasant experience.

    I also received a set of KFC Sideswipe/Red Alert hands that'll go with Clampdown from xuehui_cn4 a legit seller I've bought from before.

    My Guttur/Grassor situation with hxli7777_5 got slightly shittier. Last USPS update is they are at my local post office. No movement for 3 days, I'm guessing because of a bad address (probably originally had correct zip code). I opened a Paypal case after seeing the negative feedback roll in. Paypal telling me they have to wait (20!!) days to see if package moves. They said 10 days is for seller response, but when a tracking number shows movement they give 20 days. from last update.

    If it is sitting at your local PO why not try going there to pick it up to confirm what it is?

    That's exactly what I did. I took the tracking number and asked them what was going on with the package and they found it and showed me it had the wrong name, address, and even a different tracking number on it. I went through ebay for my refund, starting with trying to contact the seller for a refund (and I knew I wouldn't get a response). After the time allowed for them to respond I made a case for a refund from ebay and within the hour they decided in my favor.

    I can go check but not until tomorrow and I wanted to get the claim open, which I did yesterday afternoon. If I go to the post office what should I do, they probably can't give me the package if it isn't my address or even my name, and I already have a Paypal case opened.

    If youre gonna file a claim, its faster and easier to do with Paypal. eBay has to many hoops to jump through... and they kind of give the seller the benefit. Paypal will wrap this up in a week tops

    During the last flash sale, I ordered a set of the KO PE CW G2 Bruticus guns & head from fengqiuxiang to put me over the limit. They arrived today safe and sound.

    I opened up a paypal dispute with him for a MB-02 Megatooth I purchased on May 24th. He didn't have too low of prices to raise flags of going rogue, but perhaps he was slowing getting around to doing just that.

    Yeah, I just saw Sunsurge for sale by yanna998 at a deep discount. I'm skeptical.
