    Darklordsith1978 is the same guy that ripped me off years ago! I'm almost positive. I was still collecting vintage Star Wars at the time. I still do but only bargain boxed and carded stuff in person and not as much because of this. I had been bumming because I regretted selling an original early bird kit with envelope, tray, figures including DT Luke, the works. A rare set as vintage guys know. So I figured I'd at the very least hunt down a top quality DT Luke to kind of replace it. The pictures he used were of a beautiful C8-C-9 figure. This was before graded loose figures blew up on the market. What I ended up getting was a C6 or so Luke, definitely not the one in the photo. The worst part is that when I checked it against my kellerman book I believe, I confirmed my suspicions that the DT saber was a blatant FAKE! He replied for a little bit saying he told his wife to ship it and she must of grabbed the wrong one. I sent it back knowing that id never see the real one. 3 weeks later I explained to PayPal what happened and talked to several agents who didn't understand the difference between the photos he showed and what I received. Took a while but my claim went through and he had closed out bank account and they were unable to obtain the funds. He probably had several scams going at same time and bailed.

    Ive sold a lot on here lately and am a husband and father of 3 kids ages 2,3, and 5. I think I'm a good guy. I'm a professional SPFX artist and restoration specialist so I'm a pretty handy macguvier buddy to know in the hobby lol. Been collecting Star Wars and scifi memorabilia, props, some horror for the past 15 years. I'm private on forums as I just don't have a ton of time to chat but I have numerous online and local hobby friends. Out of all the great sales I've made lately, I don't have a single person on the trade feedback who had made a thread for "EwokDad!" LOL. I guess I'll have to contact the last four or five buyers I've had and ask for a favor to make or post in a thread for me haha.

    Has anyone ever bought anything from TK4281?

    Be wary when trying to engage in buying anything from this member: JediBluth

    He had some POTF2 figures available in his FS thread, I inquired about some, and then he sent me a PM back with shipping costs (shipped MOC and loose). So, I shot him a PM back and said loose was fine as long as they were complete and we could settle on x amount of dollars total. I get a reply a couple days later (today), and he says: "I had a huge sale go off and all of the POTF is gone. My list has been updated. If you see anything else you are interested in let me know."

    In most traders book(s), once you engage or are working out a deal, then that is EXACTLY what you are doing. You don't go and sell items out from under someone when they have communicated with you and you more or less have a "pending" deal. Although it may not be 100% solidified, if the person with the item(s) for sell, let's someone else have the items another member has inquired about, that is just plain shady and wrong (imho).

    Poor traders etiquette to say the very least! This site has been pretty decent the past 10 years for trading, but lately this kind of thing seems to be a trend with newb scummers. Needless to say, it's not cool. Either be legit or don't try to buy/sale/or trade (my two cents).
    My Feedback: *Attention* My entire remaining ME SW (3.75 and 6 inch scale) collection is up for sale in the Classifieds section of this site. Stop by and pick something up. TVC Barge populace figures etc!

    Has anyone bought and received anything from: Skinsfreak84 ?

    I paid for 3 TBS 6" figures the other day, and another Scummer just posted in the FS thread that he too had paid for the exact same figures, and I have not received a PM from him since I sent my payment (although he has been on the site bumping some of his other FS threads).

    At this point I am just hoping that nobody, including myself, has been burned! He has several FS threads on various parts of the site. So, whatever you do, I would not send a payment as "friends/family" until someone actually voices that they HAVE received items from this member in return for their money. I truly hope I am not out $40 bucks, for nothing, but if I am...at least maybe by posting this, someone else will be saved some hard earned cash!

    I’ve bought from him recently with no problem.

    Give the guy a little time to reply. A few hours is nothing to get worked up about. Not everyone checks their messages constantly, let alone it’s a holiday on top of that. Relax

    Member sent a refund and says they were sold to someone else. That happened with no communication prior to my remitting a payment for the agreed upon deal for those particular 3 figures. Anyhow, I would still advise against dealing with someone who solidifies a deal and then sells the items (meant for you) to someone else.
