But then if we reply to their posts with snide comments, we'll be accused of "negativity".
I'm sure they check it more than anyone else, actually, they just don't chime in. It'd be pretty difficult to defend yourself if you know you're a scumbag.
These types of opportunistic, greedy individuals that come and go into this hobby don't ruin it for me*. It's just disappointing on a personal level when others (the flippers, losers and others who support or condone said or similar shady acts) feel that it's entirely ok to take advantage of someone / a situation. It's more than just a toy, it's their personality.
* But I certainly am glad that I don't collect the same hyped shit that they flip.
This isn't necessarily flipper related.. but.. seeing how this thread is causing the most vitriol, I think it's a little relevant. I tried to do a little digging to find out more about what constitutes a ban on here and found this thread: FOR THE RECORD
It makes an interesting read for anyone who wasn't around 6 years ago. Apparently, what's going on in here (and a few other threads) doesn't hold a candle to what was going on back then. It's nice to put things into perspective. I do think the mods should be a little more involved. At least a warning, strike, something. It's basically consequence free for people who have thrown it in our face on this board.
Fascinating stuff BBB... I've never done to much reading into the older threads but clearly I'm missing out on some good reads.
But what I find most shocking - I had no idea people collected toys prior to 2010
No, you'll be accused of being a 'dumbass' for making snide comments to someone who is baiting you into doing exactly that. Don't you get it? The brazen, unapologetic flippers don't give a shit about what you think of them. Now that they've been outed they're laughing at the drama being stirred up and they continue to post and even flaunt the toys they're flipping because it pisses you off. And you respond exactly how they want you to. You get all wound up.
Out the flippers. Spread the word about who is to be avoided/shunned. But stop responding to their posts rubbing it in your face.
Looks like you listed the Mecha-Ju for the third time amethystcape. I guess you're last attempt shill bidding didn't work out for you.
I'm 100% certain the guy from the UK that I sold my Dokurocks collection to has more than half of them on eBay right now. Pretty cool of you, DarkRise / nothingsforever (how fitting for a flipper).
I hope they don't sell.
Edit: Changed 99% to 100%.
I've always wondered who nothingsforever was, so thanks for identifying them Bansheebot!
El donchucho has some vewwy nice new ebay goods up, BUT those prices have me nauseous
Does anyone know, is he still not an SB member?
Soooo.... Buzisem is gone eh?
Douche-bag or flipper or both.....
how did that happen?
Apparently Buzisem was banned. Without warning.
That's what I want to know
I know. That guy was like a saint. What could have happened?
Good things happen to good people.
The stench still lingers and he'll probably be back with a new moniker.
I Know he was part of the whole "New york crew" but he did do shady things behind everybody's back. He tried to rip me off a few months ago but i had certain authorities step in and he gave me back my money instantly. I never could comprehend why some people spoke so highly of him and would hook him up with sought after toys.
who the fuck is kicks2kicks2 on ebay? Besides a KING douche-bag flipper. I may have missed him in this thread, but this FUCK buys from Mandarake and doesn't have the decency to wait for the items before listing them on ebay with the same fucking pictures? FUCKHEAD get a clue
I notice that a lot Mark. I see it all the time on ebay. People buy toys on Yahoo Japan or Mandarake and then list them jacked up on ebay (often with the same pics). It's really amusing to me though because sofubi collectors are a tight knit group, and these idiots have clearly not considered most of us already go to these same places and can get them much cheaper.
Advice to flippers: Stop- we know about these places already, we can get them as cheaply as you can. You're not pulling a fast one you just look dumb!
