I got those "Waitin' for my transformers to come in the mail" blues...

Post by Clay » Fri Oct 15, 2004 1:21 am

Pardon me if I'm rambling...

Well, I worked out a trade with eskim0j03 from here to sell a Masterpiece Prime at cost in exchange for an insecticon and arcee to cover the shipping. That was about three weeks ago, but I'm still waiting patiently (it is an international mailing, though).

I did a couple of BuyItNows from ebay ( nemesis prime and scourge). While the fellow with the nemesis prime has been an ideal seller (gave me the the USPS tracking number and everything), the other fellow is turning out to be the non-communicative type.

Why do these people not email? Is it that hard? It would be nice to know what was going on. :wall:

Have any of you people found solutions to this type of situation?

I honestly don't know.

But I've been waiting for what seems like forever for my Alt Meister to come from Action HQ.:rant:

Dude, there's a reason we no longer have them as sponsers for the site...they're a bunch of Engrish-speaking shady characters.

I sympathise, Clay and fort_max.

I've been waiting for binaltech meister and zoom zoom to arrive, after paying 40 or so dollars for shipping. They said that by that wat of shipping [some sort of air mail or sth] they'd arrive in 2-4 days.

Still waiting...

How much did you pay for him, dedicon? He's around 50 euros in my country.

Who is the seller?

Didn't you insure the item or have a tracking number or sth?

I've only bought 5 tfs from e-bay, and currently I am waiting for the 2 of them to arrive. Should they come, all my transactions would be perfect.

Hope everything works out for your prime.

all I can say is that HLJ rocks my socks off... so many things ordered from there & never yet had a problem with them... they might sell out of the good stuff quick, but by lordy they're reliable :)

just wish they still had SL Wing Sabre in stock :(

Bit of an update:

Nemesis Prime got here today (This is a tough bugger to transform!), and I heard back from the other ebay fellow, so scourge should be here next week. :)

Still no sign of Eskim0j03, though :\

I don't believe I was intentionally jipped or anything: I did a search for his posts and he apparently hasn't said anything since the last time he PMed me, so something may have happened.

Once again, a little communication would go a long way...

A bit more of the same...

Went around ebay snapping up things, and am currently left with a fellow who just won't seem to email me whatsoever.

I've checked his feedbacks compulsively, looking at the amount of time between his auctions' end and the time the buyer left feedback, the dates of all the feedback he's left, etc, etc.

It'll get here, I'm sure, but it may be a week or three.

But why in the bloody hell can't these people email? Is $60 worth of stuff not worth two minutes of their time to reply?

I hate being left in the dark :\

Well, I heard back from the guy finally. All is well, and my stuff will get mailed later this week.

Clay's worry is subdued... for now...
