Cheers, Nick. I know, that bloody eBay Global Shitting Program is a bastard! Thankfully £32 is still not too bad for this guy all in with the clear bubble. I just got caught with four items from the one seller in the US only to discover the GSP does not allow for combinging shipping, even if all the items are going to the same destination. And it also means that the import charges are calculated with all the shipping inclusive, so it's even more of a stitch up. I gaurantee that all the items arrive in one box after all that. It's an utter con!

Nice MOC with a nice bubble, shame about the postage & import fees, it wouldn't even surprise me if ebay pocket a good percentage of these 'import fees' as I doubt we can trust ebay to be paying the right amounts to HMRC, massive corporations can't be trusted these days, I just can't see them being honest with this system. Individuals paying import tax or not should be none of ebay's business they shouldn't be interfering with this stuff, they should be a middleman sales site like they're supposed to be and that's it!

I always choose sellers who aren't listing with the GSP and politely ask them if they can send it as a gift before I buy it, I bought a MOC just yesterday being sent as a gift. 8)

All that being said though you still got a good price for the Rebel Commando, well done. :)

I am throwing this one on here as it was £55 including delivery, so in theory about £50

No doubt you guys saw this on eBay - fair enough it’s Nikto but a Canadian MoC for £50 don’t seem bad to me, even if litho damaged - it’s flat, Unpunched, Sealed etc

Well pleased

Great price for that mate, once it's cleaned up you've got a real bargain there.
