I actually have 4 loose vinyl capes to sell (two with tears in armholes), the duplicate listings are to avoid chances of timewasters and would not sell any for less than £1500. If I do I'm going to keep on cancelling transactions and you'll see them listed again until they're all sold,"


"Interesting, although can I give you a word of advice? As it clearly mentions in the article it is one of your personality traits to be blunt and rude to people, as you have been with me in the past. It's easy to be a keyboard warrior, but when your personal information, along with a photo of your child, is so readily available on the internet, I'd be careful with who you upset - this photo could end up in a pedo section on the dark web."


Quality fucking individual he is....

What a scumbag! He lists lots of items for sale that he doesn't have, because he wants a certain minimum price for the few that he does, yet doesn't list them with that minimum starting price, and hence will disappoint every buyer that legitimately wins an auction for less than his hidden minimum!

But far worse, if I understand your second paragraph correctly, is this something he sent to you? If so, I would immediately report him to both eBay and the Police for threatening behaviour.

Yep that is the second ebay message from him, a 'warning' that my son's picture may end up on pedo sites :roll:

What I don't get is how he's not got any negative feedback if he's cancelling winning bids if they don't meet his required minimum on a regular basis?

As I said on the first page, he's dodgy, wouldn't buy anything from him and with that threat to James he needs to be reported to the Police, how does he know stuff about the dark web? I hadn't even heard of the dark web until last week.

For someone to start that shit about a little kid who had nothing to do with this. He's is a complete wanker to say something like that. If you've a problem with someone deal with them. He didn't need to involve a child and bring stuff like that up because he's pissed. That is quite disturbing his mentality to bring that up because someone has a disagreement about a Jawa that he claims he has to sell on eBay.

That also confuse me a lot. No negative feedback :shock: It is very hard to believe that this is a bad seller if he do not have a negative feedback :?

Got this MOC this morning from this seller with a bad split in the bubble and when I messaged to complain I got told it was advertised as 'used' so it was as described. This obviously isn't the point as we all know, if it has a split in the bubble this is DAMAGE not 'used', the split should have been mentioned in the listing which it wasn't and wasn't even shown in the pictures.

I suggested a partial refund and he said "as per his description" he does not offer partial refunds but will refund £5 as a goodwill gesture ( what an insult ), in the end I settled on a £10 refund which to be honest I was kind of happy with because the split can't be seen when it's on display, and the transaction was done outside of ebay so I know I would have had hassles returning and getting my return costs back etc. Also earlier on I was told the item would be posted on 'x-date' and when I messaged on that date to request the tracking number he told me he was still in another country and his post is not due to go out for another 7 days ( thanks for telling me ).

I know I should have just maybe returned it via a paypal case but i'd been searching for one of these MOC's for a while and want to keep it, so it's a lesson learnt really and in future I may decide to upgrade the figure if I ever see a nicer one.

Anyway just thought i'd share about this seller as he's obviously acting very dishonestly, and he currently is selling 15!!! apparently genuine VCJ loose figures which I now believe to be fake after reading what other people have said in this thread.

probably because they are his own shill bids, previous threads showed him even leaving feedback for himself :?

Every bid on there is listed as "private listing" so I would probably tend to agree with you.

The partial refund sounds fair if the purchase price was also fair.
In the end it's down to how you feel about the MOC. :?
But I do understand as I have a MOC that I should have returned due to damage , but had been looking for one for a while and once I had it was reluctant to do so... :roll:
If you are happy you can always upgrade at a later date.

It was £135, so in the end cost £125 after the refund, i'm happy but also kind of ain't if you know what I mean?

I'm thinking have I now overpaid for something that's prob worth about £80 with the split?, i'm not too sure on the value with that, I can live with it but tbh this was a really important figure to me and it meant a lot having it, only the split and the £125 cost has kind of harshened my buzz a bit. :?

Plus yeah like you say when it's something you've waited quite a while to get it's hard to send it back unless it's severe damage.
