That's one expensive Lando!

Yeah, but he's shipping for under $5.   ;)

Guess this is a good place to ask this, does anyone know who this buyer is?

The reason I ask is, I was checking completed auctions & noticed in a short time a few bin's were made. All by the same buyer, the first bin on Jun-01-08 18:52:32 then ending on Jun-02-08 06:10:05. In that amount of time, the buyer has almost spend $4500. US on SW Kuby's not including the shipping costs.  :o   :o

Dear god!  I thought I spent a lot on Kubricks until you posted that...  Sorry Dale, I don't know the buyer...

I got paid yesterday by a Paypal eCheck. It says you need to wait for 4 business days for the funds to clear. Is there any way that I could get taken in this situation? He does have a lot of positive feedback, although it could be a "hijacked account" type of situation I suppose.

I have had those paypal echecks come through before, and I have never had a problem with a single one. Sounds like they just have the bucks-in-trucks

Should be no problem, payments by Paypal eCheck's are just like cashing a personal cheque at the bank & having to clear the waiting period. His feedback looks good thus far & with the odd expensive items purchased. Keep us posted.

Yeah, that Sandtrooper is a pretty obvious custom job...  way to try to mislead people by using a stolen pic of the Parco Sandtrooper in the auction.   ::)

I wouldn't have bought it even if I thought it was real because the spelling in the listing is atrocious.  Nice job covering himself as he's not sure if it's real.  Scammer with 100% feedback.  Greeeeeeat.
