    Bid up a Superion auction to $350 than didn’t pay, and when they finally responded two days later said they would only pay for Quickslinger. Which is baffling, did they really think I would just be like “yeah sure.”

    When I told them I’d be reporting them as a non-paying bidder, they appropriately responded “cool” because we both know what a joke that is, and they probably have ten other eBay accounts anyway.

    always use eBay global when shipping overseas as they deal with all issues with the item and you are never bothered about the item. By him getting you to switch was a scam b/c once over seas eBay doesn’t make them ship the item back you are pretty much S*** out of luck

    Ebay also did not refund the fees so I was out the figure and ~200 in ebay/shipping fees. Lesson learned.

    A quick Google show this Ebayer lives in Germany. Considering the amount of money involved you may want to contact your local police agency and/or German police about it.

    Be wary of buying from them. The figures are not as described. This is not 100 percent new complete.

    More in the realm of gray eBay sellers, out of China and carrying a variety of upgrade kits is a group that uses the watermark TOYZTOYS. The accounts are:
    These several accounts, and the Amazon seller LUCKINLUCKY, are all the same seller. They sell their own KOs of other upgrade kits alongside some legit listings and some original designs of theirs. They are reliable in shipping orders, but often try to pass off the KOs as legitimate by omission. On Amazon they at least list some of the knockoffs as "LUCKINLUCKY" in the listing title and as the manufacturer, but not always. The easiest ways to identify KOs from them are 1) they offer a high quantity of recolored options that are not listed at other trusted sellers, websites, or the designer's socials, 2) they have added side pegs that aren't present on listings elsewhere, 3) the inclusion of an opaque, 3D printed blast effect, or 4) they have large amounts of stock of a kit that is seemingly sold out everywhere else. After purchasing what I thought to be a genuine Dr. Wu DW-P47 kit from them, I received a 3D printed copy. Dr. Wu does not sell 3D printed upgrades, so I knew it was a knockoff. I contacted the seller and they tried to tell me that Dr. Wu had switched to 3D printing and that the item was genuine. After leaving negative feedback, they offered me a refund if I would retract the feedback. After getting my refund, I was blocked by the account I bought from and all other associated accounts. I can still see their listings but cannot purchase from them. Not that I retain any interest in their items after how this went down, but it still rubs me the wrong way that they get to block me for leaving negative feedback. Feels like being able to do that just encourages sellers to scam more. They have since updated the listing to note it is a 3D print and not the pictured model, but this is the exception with them, not the rule.

    TL;DR on them is they sell a high volume of knockoffs of 3D printed upgrade kits. They add pegs and do various recolors but do not often advertise that they are KOs.

    I'm chiming in with another bad seller.

    lilitutu | eBay Stores

    I ordered a part from them back in January. Three attempts were supposedly made to get it to me. The first was apparently returned to them by the shipping company. The second was delivered to the wrong address, and I immediately lodged a complaint on eBay and PayPal - PayPal, thankfully, refunded me. Their third attempt had a successful delivery of the wrong product. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE.

    Well, not Ebay but a Tfw2005 member Alirius Prime hasn't answered me in several days but has been on here looking at many posts. I sent $ for Studio Series Snarl and haven't heard back in about 5 days. Was supposed to mail it out on Monday. If you know them maybe it's a accident and they forgot... but I think they scammed me.

    This isn't really the correct place for this. Their feedback thread looks clean and they aren't on the deadbeats list, certainly not historically a scammer. I would reach out to a mod if you've already tried PMing the user in question.

    Ebay:
    I didn't think Mods or the site would deal with off site sales, but is there a specific mod to contact? The "seller" seems legit and all, but I have sent many messages and I see them hitting the site for days and browsing at threads. What I'm I to think? If they took my money and never send me the item, we'll they're a scammer now right?

    Was it off site or through the b/s/t section of the boards? I figured it was through the site if you knew their username. I don't see SS Snarl in their sales post and they haven't edited the items available in over a year. If it was on site though, I'd message Dachande, Liokaiser, or optimusfan since they are the most recent ones to have updated the deadbeats list.

    OK, they reached out to me on site, I had posted I was looking in the Florida board. Thanks.

    EDIT- they did finally reach out. I will update and delete these posts when I get my $$ back.
