Have i missed somthing here?

Post links to your own or other people's Ebay auctions. It is fine to discuss live auctions, but DO NOT post links to closed auctions for at least 7 days after the listing ends. See sales forum rules for details.

This guy's auctions shouldn't be allowed in this section anymore :lol:

He has a number a day finishing a few 100% over market value. Look at little more closely at the bidding history of the high bidder and you'll see something strange (usually).

I remember querying his auctions on here before - was told he has a good rep, but the bidding is just far too suspicious. I don't even bother following his auctions anymore because the prices go nuts!

He has minty figures and takes great photos, but IMO it's a bit dodgy. Perhaps he might not have all the figures he is offering and shills to drum up interest on his genuine sales / or only sells if top price achieved?
Not convinced either way.

Think he has another Ebay ID also offering vintage SW figures ...strangler, or something like that??

I don't know what his game is, exactly. I can think of a few reasons why things are they way they are but I wouldn't level those sorts of allegations without some evidence. Personally, I think rep counts for sod all these days. TT has a good rep for decades before the carding scandal. And the recently outed baggie king was a "nice guy" until he's been shown to be not quite so nice. This seller has way too many overpriced sales to the same person for me to believe there isn't something suspect going on. No smoke without fire, right? And eBay feedback can be manipulated. Look at millionosoftoys: they are specialists in having negative feedback removed despite evidence showing the fully deserve it. Anyway, this seller is hardly going to leave himself anything but +ve feedback if there is shill bidding going on.

That said, you just never know. Maybe he has a few die hard characters that are willing to pay more for loose, ungraded figures than you can buy them graded or even in MOC example for.

Sure....

I've said it before but I have no idea how or why his auctions go so high but when he does sell at BIN his prices are pretty normal

To be fair it wasn't an accusation. It was a speculative comment based on the prices he / she appears to consistently command on eBay for nice, but nevertheless, run of the mill figures. I know sometimes sales can run away on eBay, but still, lets be realistic!

That's beyond crazy. So it's getting to the point that loose is more expensive than MOC. Confused.com :o
