Has anyone ever bought from him? He always has the most perfect, white figures that seem too good to be true. Yet all his ratings are positive, so I'm not saying they're not all legit. I've also noticed several figures listed with the wrong weapon. His listing has Disneyland as his home which seems a little fishy as well. Anyone?

He does shill bid. Items are re-listed all of the time. I think they actually over grade most of thier stuff. "Super minty, good luck finding another this nice." Then, the photos show clear paint rubs. I actually once inquired about something once, just asking if I was seeing damage or not, as I was seriously interested in something and s/he gave a very nasty reply something like "... if you're going to picky don't buy my stuff." Um, hello, you are selling collectibles? Picky is everything? Why grade your figures?

That said, they are straightforward with weapons being incorrect, to a degree. Sometimes they list an Imperial Gunner and say "with blue Endor pistol" and do indicate it is the wrong gun. Or they will indicate "proper black Endor weapon is available in another auction." They even frequently indicate that their figures are freshly taken of a card. That really bugs me. Not really sure how they have a 100% feedback. There are some who have reported positive transactions, however.

Thanks for the response. Something's always seemed a little "off" about their listings and the feedback.

LOL, Dying to know the backstory there. A pony, bronie, shill-bidding seller is not something you encounter every day.
There was an eBay account a few years back something like disneylandponybronie or something like that.

That account was famous for posting pictures showing tons of stuff in a listing and it not being clear what you were actually buying. Likewise his stuff would often sell (often at high prices relative to market) and then relist.

To be fair I have bought from them before and had no issues.

Its the same person I've been watching there stuff for a while under both names. I have actually bought a few things from them and haven't really had any problems yet. I do have to agree that it does seem a little fishy sometimes and I don't like how everything always says fresh off the card. If they really just took it off a card to sell for more money then that just sickens me to think of all the moc figures they have destroyed just for a few bucks!

This creep bought a bunch of stuff from me a year or two back, and then filed a "not as described" return on 7 out of the 8 items (NM Falcon ramp w/ tab, a bunch of other high grade stuff I can't recall, a bunch of figures w/ original accessories), then switched out everything---ramp w/ no tab that had a portion glued back on (worthless), repro accessories w/ much lesser condition figures, on and on....I really can't get into all the details because this actually traumatized me and is pretty confusing.

Anyway, it turned out that he had done this to a bunch of other sellers at the same time. We got together on one of the forums, pooled info, it was very spectacular what he did. One guy got a lot of his personal info. This was when he was "ponybronie" or whatever....and when we all threatened him w/ legal action, he dumped that account and changed to "the supercollector". A couple weeks later, after threatening him a couple more times, he actually sent me (w/o any communication on his end, ever) a bunch of legit weapons and a few pretty decent figs, and I came out w/ a profit in the end, I think!!! Ha ha. I believe he's located in Vegas, not CA. He's a bait and switch master of sorts. Like he puts quite a lot of effort into it.

Please don't buy from him. I'm pretty sure most if not all of his stuff has been acquired through elaborate bait and switch schemes. It came out that he often buys stuff and has it sent to a third party (innocentbuyers of "his" stuff from his account). So I doubt he even physically has most of the crap in the crappy flash-bleached ultra-close up pics.

Great post! So that was the tipping point that made him change him name?!- great insight on this total scumbag seller. Clearly you guys did a wonderful job collaborating and taking him down. Well done sir!! I can’t believe ebay hasn’t given him a lifetime ban. Sellers like him brings down our hobby big time- ughh!!
