Cool, but don't buy them. The location of the sellers are default?

What I've done in the past when I'm buying thru ebay was... asking first if the item is legit then if the seller responded it's legit... pay via PayPal so that when you received a bootleg items you raise an issue with PayPal.

I'm lucky that all of the items that I bought thru ebay were legit items. 8)


EDIT:
If the seller specificed thru their page in ebay that the item is legit, no need to ask. IMHO :D

I wouldn't recommend buying DBZ figures from Hong Kong even if the seller has many positive reviews. I bought some of the Banpresto figures from Hong Kong and they were bootleg. I questioned the seller about it, and the seller told me to keep the figures and refunded my money.

So basically I should still buy the ones that aren't from Hong Kong?

That kind of makes me want to buy them from Hong Kong.
... Maybe later.

After they refunded your money... did you gave them a negative feedback?

A seller being from Hong Kong does not automatically make their figures bootlegs. That's a terrible assumption, and should you should probably rid yourself of that mentality immediately. lol

It said the location was, "Default, Default Hong Kong" can you really trust that location? :?

I recently had a pleasant experience buying from an eBay seller in Hong Kong. I just received the entire Ultimate Spark sets. Each of them came in their little cardboard box and looked pretty authentic. If they're bootlegs, they're darn good ones since their indistinguishable from my friend's American bought ones.
