HAHA! These are the sort of idiots I hate.
You see them all the time at second hand sales in the U.K trying to sell figures with arms missing etc for around $50

I'm familiar with the seller, doesn't seem to have fake stuff so it may well be legit.  At the same time, what's Vlix worth?  It'd have to be $2000+ to make that auction worthwhile, the rest of the Droids stuff even in it's currently inflated pricing would be only about $500.

I'm the same with you Brent, I have seen may of his auctions. Looks to be on the up & up. I would have loved to have bid on some of his past auctions but they are all Paypal only.

Be careful with the "Hardforce!" auctions.  I recently bought some baggie figures from him that were all re-seals. 
Private bidders, dodgy description, etc.
Some nice items, but proceed with caution.

Did you guys see this Vlix auction yet?

Legit?

I saw it, I always see them. This one is too high for me considering i already have all the other figures. I could always resell them, but i am always worried about fakes.

There were some Concerns about this seller over a year ago on RS. Answers were never given, but the evidence was there that something fishy was going on.  As Andy said bid with caution here...
