i have personally stopped allowing pick ups unless ive met the person a couple of times., its just a privacy thing.
ive had people in the past, not selling tfs, that have blatantly attempted to leave without paying, and waiting half a day for somebody(not knowing who they are) to turn up is just annoying.
and given my circumstances now i have very little time windows which i can allow people to actually come over and pick up.

i still allow pickups as i am home or near home most days looking after my son!

actually i like people to pick up as in most instances i am able to talk people into buying more stuff with out having to pay the trademe fee's

and i have meet some really cool people that i still commune with

i do understand why some people don't allow pick ups and in 4 years when i go back to work i will more than likely make my auctions none pick up as its the time thing its easyer to go to the post shop for 10mins than wait all afternoon/evening for someone to pick up

i have only come across a small handful of dodgy people but living in papakura keeps you on your toes anyway!
having a gun license helps too LOL!

Its been transformed a couple of times and i've never felt like its going to fall apart. All the small detailed parts are nice and crisp, witch is something the bootlegers never get right.

WOW, that other Alt wheeljack only went for $34! that's really sad, the market for alternators has hit a new low. I glad i flicked most of mine off earlier in the year when i was replacing them with BT's. :(
(lol was contemplating snagging it and reselling when the market was better :lol: )

I love the links to dodgy auctions lol. I actually saw that one last night and thought it may have been the ko that comes in the box with the lighter purple.
At least it says its not original ae

yeah i got one of these it cost me $10.00 was good to have till i could afford a G1 devastator

originally the auction said G1 from 1984 but i hit him up and he changed the details then he blacklisted me....its the cheap stickers and the mixmaster not having any chrome that gives it away!

those are low end k.o's. Shit would hit the fan if somebody bought the exact copy rip off ones, i.e the fake giftset or carded ones and sold them as a mint complete loose original devy. They even make them in the g2 colors now. Going back buying again even four five months later fakes bootlegs k.o.s have just saturated the market and screwed it good. Especially now you can buy custom packaging some of it so close to the original you have to have very good hawk eyes or only from a major trusted tf dealer. Older beat up packaging even tho it looks rough in a wayid more appealing as its obvious its original. Oh well i suppose we make the trouble ourselves by continueingto collect...lol...
