    With all those damn Vehicons, I can see why Central Texas isn't getting any....they're all going to the UK! :D

    Considering how screwed over Transformers fans in the UK get with most TF lines not releasing a few later waves at retail, this seems oddly appropriate that they get the coveted Vehicon in droves.

    Agreed, if this is dodgy (and I can't see how someone could get such insanely high feedback without a very rapid turnaround), then a Paypal claim will ensure I'm not left out of pocket if the worst happens.

    Yeah, and you have to consider that lots of Ebay buyers anyway are just touchy, impatient, impossible to please douchebags that are all too ready to figuratively slam their fist down on the negative button for even the slightest or dumbest things at a moment's notice.

    And honestly, because of that, I'd be surprised if ANY retailer at all like this that does buisness via Ebay actually has a spotless record.

    Oh wow, dude's all sold out and the last purchase that wiped him out was made by one buyer that apparently bought 100 of them. Unless I'm looking at the buying history wrong:

    eBay UK Item Purchase History

    Absolutely disgusting.

    Ebay:
    Yep, the last guy bought 100. Judging by how high his feedback is, I would guess maybe those 100 will be popping back up on eBay for higher prices.

    That's what makes this so disgusting. This UK seller sold them for a great price, possibly just to help folks out and some asshole had to come along and clean him out, most likely with the intent to turn right around and scalp them :/

    WOW! I feel an Essay coming on, Ebay seller puts highly sought after item up for beyond resonable price.....Is cleaned out by a diffrent seller for the purpose of reselling the stock at a higher cost.

    If we actually see the person who bought 100 re-list these I think We should immortalize this event! We will forever have an example of what differentiates a Seller from a Scalper.

    Looking at the sales history a bit more the guy who brought that last 100 also brought 70 from the first batch as well.

    lmao 100 quantity from 1 buyer. SCALPER ALERT...

    This is an example of why you shouldn keep hot ticket items under wraps, because word gets out damn fast....If you want an item, you get it first before you mouth off.
