    No reason to avoid the solid ones, Baba, netclow, hjz, etc. Just the ones with ridiculous discounts etc.

    Ah yeah I forgot Baba has accounts on ebay, I tend to just use his site really.

    Thanks bud. You've got to love ebay - request a refund, they tell you to send the item back first. But there is an option to contact the seller and if nothing back after 3 business says then contact ebay etc. so I'm going for that one

    That sucks about the seller. Looks like I'll be waiting for 2 boxes to show up, then file a claim.

    Ebay are aware of Chinese sellers going rogue like this, so if you can advise them that this has happened and show the edivence, they should process it.

    A few years ago; when I first started collecting, I ordered a Grump and on the same day learned that they had likely gone rogue. I reported it straight away (skipped contacting the seller etc.), just explained the scam and I got a full refund pretty quickly. Grump never showed up of course.

    This also might speed up the seller being shut down by eBay and prevent others from being scammed.


    Anyone else waiting for items from this seller, I suggest report it now. Don't wait for anythig to arrive. Explain the scam and detail the evidence.
    It worked for me, so you never know.

    I've just reported it to ebay, using the other option and for breaking their rules. Not sure if this is the right way about it but after I submitted it, ebay stated that the outcome will not be sent to me which is annoying.

    When you reported it, did you do it via the site or did you have to call them ?

    I don't remember the precise actions I made, but it was certainly through the website.
    It might have been using the Resolution Center found within my account dashboard. I remember absolutely hammering about the seller turning rogue and being scammers and "here" is the evidence.

    I don't remember if I got a report back, but I certainly got my money back pretty quickly.

    Bummer man. Sorry to hear. Let’s hope your blurr was the last “good” one before the rogue move

    How could it be good if he didn't receive it and only got a card? If the seller is still receiving positive feedback then the feedback is either fake or his Blurr could be the first "bad" as the seller went rogue.

    Looking at the seller, he has sold a lot of these fake blurrs so looks like not only me who has been conned. Hopefully ebay will shut them down. They replied to my report to say they are investigating anyway.

    Be aware, Ty-dynng-8 is fighting my refund request for a Blurr and is stating the negative feedback is an error. They’ve even got the Gaul to reply to me with that and fight with me with PayPal.

    Probably best to comment on the china sellers thread as I did sort of hijack this thread purely by accident. I've replied to you there as the same is happening to me.

    Oh and... Thomas.. transformers.. toys.. etc:rolleyes:

    Anybody else having an issue with paint flaking off the metal upside-down T shape at the bottom of the groin? Seems to be getting worse every time I transform him

    I haven’t looked, but man I hope not. I’m not the biggest FT fanatic out there, and that would really annoy me!
