I keep forgetting to post that I am seeing random figures from this wave popping up at walgreen's. first I saw Merumeru a few days ago and then Vizam today. Only Time i have ever seen either figure anywhere.

What were the prices like?  The Walgreens near my house charges $14.99 for Movie Heroes figures.

So out of the first ten or so OT 6" figures, we're looking at 3 Lukes?

Good move.  eBay isn't necessarily going to side with you, but they're very likely to side against you if you get all pissy in the email and response history.

Glad to hear it worked out and that the guy was honest about paying you back.  He could have easily gotten away with keeping the money.

I sold mine for about $10 each, but that was 5 or 6 years ago.

I hate you Rob. 

Completely irrationally I'm blaming you for what just happened to me on EBay.  I believe I just got hosed by a Mexican buyer that claims an item never arrived.  I didn't provide tracking because to ship from Canada to Mexico is stupid expensive and the buyer declined.  I decided to be a nice guy and ship to him anyway (I am a fool) and he filed for non-delivery.  Well, without tracking I have no proof and no way will EBay side with me.  Not even going to try and fight this one but two crappy postal systems = disaster for me.  I'm out $50 and no way am I shipping to Mexico ever again. 

I don't believe the problem was at the Canadian end either as I shipped seven other auctions out the same day as the one to Mexico and they all arrived.  I know this because (miraculously) I received feedback on all of the other auctions. 

Stoopid eBay.  Stupider seller.   >:( :P

For your hail mary... call eBay directly.  When I had the issue with the dumb girl over the running shoe, a phone call sorted it all out.  If you have solid feedback and are nice to the person you talk to, you might be able to explain that you had good reason to not pay for tracking, and that this guy is clearly abusing the system to steal from you.

Definitely worth a shot.  They gave me my money back and removed the negative feedback that girl left me. 

But yeah, my bad.  Sorry for ******* that up for you.

Thanks guys.  I called eBay a little while after I posted to look into it, and they told me what you guys did.  He can leave a comment on the positive feedback that he already left, but he can't change it - so it won't go into the percentages at least.  I'm going to take the high road once more time and ignore him, but he's already on strike 2.  If he asks again, I probably won't be able to resist telling him (nicely) why I'm doing what I did.

Perfect, thanks.  Every set for the last 3 years is in boxes waiting for me to have a larger room anyway, so I'm not in a hurry.  I'll hold out for now and see if it shows up at Amazon.  It'd basically be free for me if it does.

Latest eBay drama...

Okay... so I sold a bunch of army builders last month.  I don't sell to other countries, but this guy in Denmark asks really nicely to buy 3 AT-AT drivers so I say okay.

I charge him $10 to ship and the actual cost was $9.45.  He asks me what I spent and I tell him, and he has the nerve to ask for a $0.55 refund.  Never mind that it's shipping AND handling... that eBay now takes fees out of your shipping charges... I don't want an upset customer over $0.55, so I send him the money.

Fast forward a week or so and he gets the package and is very upset that there aren't action figure stands with the figures.  He correctly points out that I listed them as complete with all their accessories.  I of course meant helmets, weapons, backpacks, etc... and forgot all about the fact that they ever had stands.

Being as shipping them back to me would be cost prohibitive, I offer him a $5 refund to compensate (he only spent $4.99 per figure).  He replies that this isn't good enough, and that tracking down stands will be difficult, and that last time he did this they cost him $2.50 each.  Never mind how outrageous that all is, I cough up the $7.50 because an extra $2.50 isn't worth negative feedback to me.

Fast forward again and he's left me positive feedback (yay).  I decline to leave him feedback.

He emails me and asks me to leave him positive feedback.  I ignore his email.

Now today, two weeks later, he emails me again asking me to leave him positive feedback.

So, my question... can he revise the feedback he already left me and turn it negative if he gets mad at me for not leaving him positive feedback?

What I WANT to do, is send him an email detailing exactly why I consider him to be a pain in the ass and won't be leaving him positive feedback or making exceptions for international buyers in the future, but don't want to do this if he can change his feedback retroactively.

Thanks.  If it's going to have a shelf life of 2, 3 or even 4 years, is it likely that it'll be opened up to other retailers at some point or is Lego pretty firm on their exclusives?

Do any of you guys know if the Ewok Village is some sort of exclusive to the lego store?  I've been saving Amazon points for awhile and was going to use them to buy it there, but it's only available for $100 more from third party sellers. 

Does Lego typically restrict the larger sets from Amazon in some way for some period of time?

I'd say it is a given, assuming Ford, Fisher and Hamill are back, that there will be "evolution" sets of the ANH appearance of the characters along with the EVII appearances.  Hasbro loves that crap.

Oh, good.  Finally we'll be able to get a Luke, Han, and Leia figure made.

I'd be okay with that if we were going to a full blown keeper league...

That says it all... PM me if you happen to have one to sell.  The last one on Rebelscum sold for $200, the last one on eBay for $240 - so that's my target price range.
