    The price on him keeps climbing up. Initial price by this seller was $74.95 to then $79.95 to now $84.95. I grabbed one on Wednesday at the initial price. Really hope he's in-hand! I have not received any type of ship notification from this seller.:inquisiti

    Pfff, who the hell would wanna PAY for a Mirage that is only supposed to be invisible? You can get a REALLY invisible Mirage from me, for absolutely free!

    In fact, it's already on your desk, you're just not seeing it because it's invisible. ;)

    November was an estimate and not alwyas accurate. I do know this seller and he does indeed have it in hand, he showed it to me. We should be seeing these very soon I am told now, like within the next 3 weeks, depending on shipping times.

    So does the item more closely resemble the one on the ebay auction (slight tint of blue), or is it closer to the one on the Agesthreeandup's site (completely clear)?

    The blue was from the lighting. It is all clear.

    Clear G1 Mirage arrived this morning 9/21 from this Ebay Seller.
    I was able to get this at the original buy-it-now price listed of $74.95 on 9/12.

    Mirage arrived from China via EMS service, not from Canada - the seller's location.
    I guess the item was not exactly in his hands.

    Mirage was shipped very securely within a small box within a larger shipping box.
    Now here's where my disappointment comes in...

    Display box is scuffed pretty bad in one corner, not due to shipping.
    However, I wasn't planning on keeping him in the box. Here's a pic of the scuff:
    [​IMG]


    Just looking through the window display, I can see bad scuff marks and chips on the silver chrome of the rear wheel.
    Also the white lining on the bottom on the car (underneath the letters "IT") is unfinished:

    I know this is a KO, so I wasn't sure if I should really be this upset over this.
    I haven't even opened the box yet...
