    That's what happened to me with two of my neca turtle orders... They got to the "processed thru ______, China processing center" then nothing. Talking to friends who frequently ship from China, usually that means one of two things... It got seized on China's end or on the usa end... Both are equally likely.

    Ebay put my case "on hold" to give the seller more time to respond like he is gonna respond.

    I opened a case as well. Hopefully they'll see the bad ratings he is getting and the # of cases being opened against him and realize what is going on and speed things along for us all.

    This seems to be the issue I have with TFC Verti-aid. Last status was processed through Hong Kong sort facility on 2/16 then nothing. I will give it a few more weeks before I file a claim with PayPal. Ordered from RK.

    Good news, ebay gave me my money back without the need to send the pear notes back :lol 

    Also today i got my other Huff. Paint was fine before transformation and then it all came off on my hands. No biggie.... went to Michael's, got some paint, and disassembled the parts. They are soaking in alcohol to remove the old paint and i should have them sprayed by tomorrow :D  Paint on the chest seems fine so I wont be touching that one for now.

    My refund is processing now. I notice that the user is no longer listed on ebay. Good, get that scum off of there. I ordered another Huff as well, but it'll be a few weeks before he arrives.

    Still very much holding out that bad cube revisits this sooner than later. Hell i'd be happy if they just said for sure they would. I'd just wait for it all happy like, knowing it would eventually arrive with the same level of quality as brawny.

    Same. It's close to excellent and fits in with the other Masterpieces quite well.

    May as well paint the chest now because it WILL flake off eventually. Get yourself one of those pick sets made by Great Neck sold at Auto Zone stores. One of them has a pick with a 90 degree bend in it that will get that pin out to allow you to remove the chest piece.

    Well I have one from Tony floating around the postal system. He told me he has had a problem with delays. I am supposed to file a paypal dispute on the 12th. I also ordered from the EBay scammer that I will have to file tomorrow morning.

    I just ordered another one from Toymoda.com. EMS shipping and Huff came to 87.00. Funny thing is that the PayPal express address was [email protected].

    If I some how get two, I'll offer one up to someone on this thread if they want it.

    Damn. Wonder if there's an HK > US issue at the moment. Looks like both you and Primeconvoy1 are in PA too...

    Know it's the wrong coast, but does a lot of stuff arrive through west coast then get distributed throughout the country? I understand there's been strikes recently on that side. I only mention because a lot of international stuff comes through Sydney here, then goes on its merry way.

    Toymoda is a part of KFC/Xtransbots, yes. If I recall correctly, that's where they had their first dibs on sales of their products, then stores like BBTS and TFSource received their shipments later.

    As for the delays, I can't help but wonder if the port backup has something to do with it. It all depends on how you had it shipped from China. If it was Airmail or EMS, then of course it'll go by plane, but if it was anything ground related, it will most likely go by boat. I've never ordered from Tony, so I'm not sure what his shipping method is (I think it's Airmail) but I do know the USPS has been botching deliveries as of late.

    Not sure why. This is probably their slowest season of the year.

    Yup, mine only has the usual paint issues. Everything else is fine with it aside from the headlights popping off (fixed with glue).

    I won my Paypal claim against chimungmung, and got my money back. I go to BBTS to purchase a Cubex Huff with the money, and they're out of stock! :banghead:  Ugh!

    I really don't want to go through Ebay. The hunt continues...

    CGA appears to have stock. Not sure where it's based though, you might run into the same shipping issues...
