That's a great price - can you share the source with the rest of us?

Got in contact with a family memebr in HK and asked if he knew any stores he could place an order for me cheap. After going to all the main toy stores he found a hidden gem and placed a pre-order on my behalf

So I take it this is some place that only ships to HK?  If it's a place the rest of us could order from, please post the details.  Thanks and nice score!

Yeah you could say something like that. When I was out there last year most of these HK toy sellers sells to the local market and there first language is chinese. English is very limited but there are a few who do deal international.

From what I was told my pe-order will be completed by my family contact and he will send out the item when it is released

Looks pretty suspicious - lots of $.99 crap.  You're probably protected buying thru paypal, but I'm not going to test the waters.

Protected only if the funds are in the sellers account. Yeah, this seller raises red flags.

I find any seller no matter who they are very suspicious if they're selling pre-order items months away from release. They always quote Ebays policy but how if I win that auction can they provide me with the deluxe series in mid may?

I have to say there is a good few sellers on ebay who sell pre-orders and stump up the goods.

Its just finding the woods from the trees.

But seeing as my bid was rejected, it wont matter.

How do you mean your bid was rejected?  I've never seen that before.

Maybe he had been outbid or the seller blocked him?  ???
