First thing is I realize this isn't a big deal at all. Six baseball cards for all of 50 cents.

But I won two lots of three MN Twins baseball cards from a guy last Sunday on ebay. When I try to pay I get a message from ebay saying his paypal account can't accept my payment at this time. I let him know, he says he contacted paypal and they said paypal is down. I have had no problem with paypal the rest of the week including paying other people.

I have let him know I have been trying to pay all week and it still doesn't work. I asked him if his other items he sold same day have been paid for by the buyers. I have asked him what he would like to do about it. He isn't responding. I emailed paypal for suggestions and they were useless.

Is there a way to ask ebay to help without it opening a case? I don't want to open a case for 50 cents worth of cards that the issue is him not getting his money. But it's obnoxious he won't respond and I'd like my cards. They may not be valuable but filled a hole in my collection and I don't buy his story about "paypal is down".

Any thoughts?

Thanks for your input gentlemen

Wasn't sure where to ask this and didn't want to start it's own thread: Does anyone have a Friar Tuck from the 1991 Kevin Costner "Robin Hood" movie toy line in with their Jabba's palace themed stuff? It looks like since they used the Gamorrean Guard body for him he'd fit in quite nicely without his robe on. Just a random thought I thought someone might have some insight into. Thanks

Saw the Alien figs at B&N today. No Alien though. Worth checking out your local B&N again if anyone is still interested.

I have had both something I bought and something I sold go to the west coast first when it should have gone north to south and vice versa and other than the extra time it took, everything went fine. Though the buyer only gave me 4 stars for shipping time. Whatever.

Picked up Mara Jade.

Opened up the shipping box and there was nothing inside (that's a "Legends" joke).

I'm a sucker for these EU things like this.

And now I type this more for myself than any other reason, my vintage funds need to replenish so unless I can find a reasonable priced Sise Fromm or the item is less than $10, I WILL NOT BE HAVING ANY LATEST VINTAGE ACQUISITIONS FOR A WHILE!!!! Self control, self control, self control, self control....................

A guy I know, goes by the name of GrandMoffRick, picked up a 12" (15") IG88. No accessories and no right hand so price was (relatively) low.

Question for anyone who's seen them in the last 5 to 10 years:
Pearl Jam is one of my all time favorite bands. "Black" is my favorite song of all time.
Having said that I think their, let's say pre 2000 stuff is brilliant overall, but their post 2000 stuff is only "good" overall. When they perform now do they do a nice mix of their stuff or do they "promote" newer stuff? I know they don't have any super recent releases so that maybe helps my cause.
Any thoughts?

I think I got pretty lucky, $25 plus shipping.  He's definitely showing his age, but I'm stoked to have him.

Nice! I'd have jumped at that price.

(I believe) complete remote control R2D2. He is a little dirty, but comes with R2, the remote, the antenna, the instructions, a couple tabs I think went around his legs saying "electronic do not drop", both styrofoam inserts to hold R2 and keep the box's shape and an, I'd say, good to very good condition box.

Grand total after bid, shipping, (unfortunately) tax was $18.18. I thought it was a home run. The fact only one other person bid maybe says it isn't. Fun to get something with a box AND inserts though.

Oh and seller had it listed as "untested". I probably will leave it untested.

Sounds like maybe it'll prevent idiot sellers from incessantly relisting toys with ridiculous BINs.  Can't complain about that!

That is a good point. One of my biggest pet peeves about ebay is the sellers who spend no research time on what their stuff is worth (same item selling for).

Sadly I paid a little over sticker price...  :)

He had to pay tax and shipping too obviously Justin.

But seriously that is cool. I will never have a 12 back and it's neat to see people who do. So pretty.

Decided to check out the classified section on Rebelscum. Good God there are a lot of a holes on that site. Settle down people. I thought I could get over emotional over toys.

I think what he's saying is there is a fee on any toy you list BIN style. Not no BIN for toys.

Droids Sise Fromm

Cost wise probably talking about loose. Even okay with a robe-less version if that's all that's available.

Thanks for looking.
