A set of six Lograys for $49.99? Fake or deal of the century?

Bobafett2007 told me he was going to remove the 5% PayPal fee from his auctions, but now he has simply changed it to a fixed handling fee, which seems legit. It that turns out to be 5% as well. Anyway, he is going to refund me my 5%. This should be in the scams and fakes thread.

Something more on topic. The ridiculous price for this 2008 collectors box is what caused me to stop collecting Kubricks for a while. That and the devaluation of chases by reissuing them as regulars (indiana, halo, han luke stormtroopers, boba fett). Before that I was a completist. Well almost. Last year I started buying my first bricks again. But now I only buy the ones that I really like and I try to stay away from chases.

i dont think he can ask for additional money in an auction... i'm pretty sure you can report it and get his auctions shut down. at least you use to be able to do that.

Thanks for mentioning that Adrian. You were right. eBay Surcharges Policy. I have reported it and I am now trying to get a refund for the additional fee.

I prefer to buy things directly from the east nowadays. In contrary to the dollar, most people at the office have no clue what the exchange rate is of the yen and simply not bother. If your package gets singled out by the customs officer expect to pay tax + pay a handling fee + wait 1 to 2 weeks longer. On low values  that handling fee can be a real joy killer. Example:
Toys 41
Shipping 13
Tax 10.26
Handling Fee 12.50
Total increase in price 22.76 / 54 = 42%

And I would never classify Nixon as a good example.

Asians lie. Yanks don't.

Except for their presidents.  ;D

I did not have sexual relations with that woman...

They're also available at Amiami for 2340 yen (20% discount ~ $28 USD).

I can't figure that site out.  What is the cost with SAL parcel shipping?
I guess SAL shipping will be about the same as the R2-D2 & C-3PO 2-pack (480 yen).

Found a slightly better picture on amiami. R2 is different with only two legs, but C-3PO seems to be identical to the one from S3. Or am I missing something?

btw. Speaking of which, why the cough with the white version...  ???

My favourite is 400% Boba Fett Prototype. I love the detailed weathering on it. It cost me an arm and a leg but it is the centerpiece in my collection.

For 100% SW Kubricks my favourite would be the Scout Trooper with Bike. Runners up would be Dagobah Luke, Veers and Shadow Trooper (glossy!).

For non-SW it is Melusine (camo version) from Maschinen Krieger. This one is what started it all for me.

The order form at bearbrick indeed says it's limited to 1 per address/family. Don't know about the raffle thingy.

Tokyo Hunter had a post of this the other day. You can order with him until the 25th of July, but I don't know what his fee will be.

Got my bricks today! They look great. Is it just me or are they shorter than the previous series? Anyway, I decided to add some weathering to the battle droids. Left: an original. Middle: washed and cleaned up. Right: washed and waiting to be wiped clean.
