  1. Here's one: ryno2342 Scammer. Avoid.
  2. Hi Someone pointed me this way for a Newt (Carrie Henn) Aliens book, and Gal Gadot WW book Too late? Thanks
  3. If the full size Deadpool statue and full size arcade game is thrown in, then you'd probably only lose half your money. If there was anything good, it would be shown. The fact that the 1st app of Typhoid Mary is the 'best' book shown (current 90 day GPA $68) speaks volumes. Avoid unless you can inspect in person before bidding. If you win - I'll make you an offer for the Deadpool Statue!
  4. So, get a call... Wonder Woman #1 - #20 With the 3 key issues... And then...... Wonder Woman #207 - #329 inc Oh, and this lil' ol' thing... Total Cost - are you sitting down... $300 USD Her price, not mine, happy to oblige. And yes, she'd been on ebay, but wanted the cash quickly for something else. My lucky day! Stay tuned, 4 boxes are heading my way - not as glamorous but possibly very rewarding...
  5. Who is infinity comics? They may have given dylando the info about email addresses. Cold calling / spamming is a no-no on ebay That is reportable, and if you have had no dealings with Dylancrazyverse you should report him to ebay. Gifs are fine, but this kid, and I don't think there is anything wrong with him except being a complete knob, has cheated buyers using a label loophole and tried to extort CGC with false claims. Not to mention his dreadful grading and customer service. I'd be reporting him to ebay BY PHONE if I got this.
  6. I gotta say the size of those people clinging to the skyscraper seem a bit wrong to me. Unless they are 41 ft tall of course...
  7. Looks like the appeal by CGC was denied in July. Does this mean The Meyers won? And now what, damages? It's not like there isn't 745 lawyers on here to explain this stuff...
  8. So, you get ones that go bad, and some that are OK. Simpsons #1 - #60 plus assorted randoms (already sold some before pic)
  9. Resolution of my complaint has now been pushed back again - now to 15th Sept. No comms from paypal, no way to contact them. Phones go direct to voicemail No live chat Messaging not answered The on-site pay-pal community board is awash with the same complaints: No way to contact them Random account freezing Money 'on-hold' with no way to access it In Australia and New Zealand paypal currently appears to be automated fully. I have withdrawn all $$, am moving to managed payments when ebay here starts it in Nov/Dec and will be using my CC for all purchases to get bank protection. Meanwhile the CEO withdraws yet more $$ by selling more shares. I have a very bad feeling about paypal What other alternatives do you guys use for international funds transfers?
  10. Gotta agree with @ADAMANTIUM - not convinced they are the same books. At all. If there is extra length on those lines, then it can't be from a spine roll as it's not even. Different marks on the thick line - on the top, a cbc goes 100% across- the bottom one, not so much, and there is a new line. They are either different books OR They were detached already and 'someone' has tried to shove a few slithers under the staple to have the 'cover detached' removed from the label. This won't always result in a bump - but it makes the most sense. And makes these AF #15's 2.0 / 2.5 detached cover copies at best. So where does he get $60K compo from? If there are other pics, then I haven't seen them - but my guess is that this either pics of different books, or a 'cover reattachment' gone bad. Did someone else say they had come back with resto as well?? If Danielle Perlman is calling him out in public, well that says everything - her and Adam are the nicest couple you will ever meet.
  11. I'm glad you can talk to someone. My 'claim' was just pushed back a week. Soon be outside the 45 day limit - meaning I have to go to the financial ombudsman as the claim will 'expire' This is happening to too many peoplr. Seems like Paypal is in it's death-throws and wants to hang on to as much $$$ as it can. Ebay leaving was probably the end for Paypal.
  12. Should have stopped at season 1 Kreese being introduced has totally ruined it. Season 2 3/10
  13. You can't now. They are a bloody disgrace. Bought some comics (not ebay) that were trashed, opened claim - no response from paypal. Been under review for weeks - cannot get them via phone, do not answer emails, do not have live chat currently. I've removed all funds just to be on the safe side. Something seriously wrong at paypal.
  14. What a heap of fun. Very pleasantly surprised with season 1 - on to season 2 now. Nice mix of flashbacks and music without getting overly reliant on the old movie to drive the story forward - people could still enjoy this without seeing Karate Kid (although they should watch it first) Got a bit 'teary' during the Mr Miyagi (Pat Morita) tribute - but in a nice way. Classy touch. This was one of those 'don't remake a classic' movies - but to my surprise and enjoyment, the series format suited it well. Season 1 9/10
  15. Wish Martin would just finish the bloody books. Then they could re-do the whole thing again as it was written - not as they made for TV. 10 years now - 10 years for the next book - and at least 1 more book to go.
  16. Not as good as season 1. They could have condensed a couple of episodes - Klaus as a guru could have been longer as the option for hilarity was certainly there. God bless 90's pop music lyrics (if you didn't get some of his 'teachings'!) - Too much focus on Dave, and Alisons story went on a tad too long, as did Vanya and her closet affair. I get racism and homophobia were huge back then (and sometimes not much better now) but I watch Umbrella Academy to be entertained. Do we need to be lectured in every show? Hopefully season 3 will get back to more humour, action and music, with less of the politics. At least we will find out about Ben.Finally. Anyone else think Lila will be back? Great character. I agree - 5 was awesome again. 6/10
  17. Ebay Australia were all over us like a rash 2 months ago. Now nothing about this at all. Could be international sales in currencies or postage delays causing issues that made the roll out stop. I dunno, but they haven't mentioned it at all since the initial email. Still paypal here. As for top-rated seller - who cares about a badge. The shipping/handling restrictions are insane. If you provide good service, you build up a decent base of regular buyers over the years. I think I have 180 followers - 3400 pos feedbacks, 1 neutral. Steady change and variation of stock seems to do the trick. Comics, TPB's, Glamour 'mens' mags, Heavy metals, Skater mags - all sell well - not expensive sales, but regular cheap quick turnover stuff. That's where an ebay store works - low value, quick turn-over stuff. I certainly would now be very hesitant to use it for individual items over $200 - 300 Then again - this is my hobby, certainly your mileage will vary if this is paying your mortgage or rent. Maybe they will re-think it, but it's ebay. I don't think I've seen a business shoot itself in the foot more often, or with greater accuracy.
  18. Did you 'see' them or BUY them? It's not clear from your posts. If you bought them - has to be the biggest haul on this thread for years More pics!
  19. That was actually pretty bad - didn't he get 20 yrs for trying to beat her to death whilst we were all mocking their 'sales room'?
