Here's our favorite guy many_feedbacks bringing us another insane deal on eBay!!! XD

http://cgi.ebay.com/...ME:B:SS:US:1123


AKA Orangebid and Lake Chan.

Man, that guy is awful. For any of you new folks who are reading this, I suggest you check out his write-ups in the Blacklist thread. Bad auctions like this one aren't even the real problem with him.

Unbelievable.

Feebay is going to start taking a cut of shipping from sellers now, because of crap like this. And yet, when one tries to report an auction for fee avoidance, it is comepletely ignored :angry:

What's amazing is the fact of, by looking at his fb and stars, his buyers are completely cool with being bent over on shipping fees. Don't these twats realize that if the transaction goes bad, they are going to get a refund of a whole 0.99?

eBay NEEDS to start charging for shipping. Currently their shipping policy is unfairly biased against domestic sellers. If I buy a $100 item, have it shipped to the states for $40, and then list it for sale for $140 + $10 domestic shipping then I have to pay a fee on $140. Meanwhile, if the international seller lists it on eBay for $110 + 40 shipping he only has to pay a fee on $110. That's not cool. So, if I'm a savvy domestic seller I then say hey, I'm going to sell it domestically for $100 (what I paid for it) + $50, the total cost of shipping the toy here and then to someone else. Then I get reported to eBay for excessive shipping costs. It's a no win until eBay reduces their overall fees and includes shipping in the calculation (although there should be exception for some types of products).

yep, insanity. not even remotely comparable to the legendary old "JOONS" 1/55s,

Hahahaah...I know this shop. Even us locals avoid him/her, especially the mother, always claiming their items are new, very rare, super hard to find, last in stock, etc, etc....

Here's a gem from our buddy many_feedbacks.

http://cgi.ebay.com/...em=140614044937

Who knew the Playmates Destroid reissues were worth so much money? And who knew that toys that were manufactured in 1995 are "almost 30 years old?" Maybe we should ask the one person who actually bid on this. ;)

Good news from
TheLoneWolf

The best part is the item description which states:


Item Description:Yamato Macross Plus 1/72 scale YF-21 Valkyrie Chogokin. The item is used, no box with broken & missing parts. The item is in overall ok condition. As shown in photos.


Too funny.

$419 is too much! Her SRP back then was just around $60-80, after I checked here:

For that asking price, the least he could do is pay for shipping. <_<

easy. the seller bought it using one of his many accounts. orangebid AKA Lake Chan AKA Many Feedbacks does this all the time. he leaves himself positive feedback almost instantly after he buys his own stuff.

Just recently viewed this thread for the first time, and couldn't stop laughing at the amount of auction b.s. that gets caught.

So, does this one count as absurd? VF-1D's seem pretty rare, but somehow I just can't see how this isn't absurd:

Not just limited to eBay.

I know this is a rare kit, but that rare? Plus, the box is dented, and one of the bags is opened.
