    That sucks :( The ONLY thing I've ever ordered off ebay is a rare disney dvd, and it took a lot of persuading.

    actually...that is a great price compared to what I paid for mine when they first hit Canada...of course I did get the 2 boxes of Post Cereal with it too! No...I am not going to disclose what I paid....lets just say....I got taken to the cleaners!

    But, It is a great base if you want to make more realistic Clone helmet compared to the Rubies! ;)

    Hey guys. I've been burned about three times from sellers on ebay (about 60 wins) in the last 3 years. Two items were never sent (dealers kept my $$) and one item was shipped damaged. Ebay does have its ups and downs, but without it I wouldnt have been able to get my Japaness Pepsi cans or my KFC happy meal toys from Australia or even some Hot Wheel Treasure hunts. I would suggest to check the sellers ratings. Any seller who has even just a slite few nagetives wouldnt get my bid. I wouldnt bid on something from anyother country but the good ol' USA. The shipping is just ridiculous. If the auction is for a 3 3/4 inch figure and the shipping is more the just a few dollars...skip it. The seller has to have an established ++++ rating to get my bid. Also look at how the seller wants to be paid...MO, Paypal, checks, etc. Paypal has had a bad rep, but you could get your item within a few days depending on the seller. I just got a Silver R2 exclusive last week and it only took about 3 days to arrive from the time of puchase. Food for thought.

    I'm Biddin' on the boots, so please don't bit against me... unless it goes over $30, that is the most I'm willing to pay for these boots so if it goes over $30 its fair game. I was actually going to go and look at the boots from england today, and get quotes on the shipping, I'm still going to do that incase I don't get the ebay-boots.

    Well, I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya, Lor. I won't bid on 'em. I think they would still be too big for Wook's feet.

    I just hope you don't have to resort to the boots from the UK. It hurts me just thinking that the shipping is as much as the boots!

    I doubt I'll win, because there are four days left, but that is fine I'm wary about buying stuff on ebay and I posted my finding on the boots from Britannia in the costume thread and the places I looked even have boots in Wook's size...

    Who wants to go in on one of these? We can use this as a basis for making several types of helmets.

    I dont think this is a deal or steal, but it might be good for getting molds.
