Intelligator has an account on here, I think.  Maybe he'll comment.


I was thinking something similar myself.  I have bought from Intelligator before and was happy with the prices for the most part.  But there are a few things in his store that I think are a little on the high side.  No different than most resellers though.  Heck, every so ofter even some of Badmike's prices have raised an eyebrow.  :roll:

I was watching the same seller's FASA Battlestar Galactica a couple of days ago and got to thinking I might put a token bid in on the Escape from New York as there were no bidders at the time.  That would have been pointless.  :roll:

Check out Intelligator's completed items though.  Certainly no shortage of buyers and his feedback is pretty good.  Maybe his prices are just about right?  He's definitely making a tidy profit on his BINs.

I thought that name sounded familiar, and sure enough, I bought from him about 10 weeks ago ... a bunch of stuff, too. Here's one:



G 1-2-3



The price was right, the shipping was fine, and he seemed friendly enough to me. FWIW.

i wrote to the seller asking him if by chance he digited the wrong number placing the comma after 3 instead of 2 numbers... he never replied me...  :?

Geez!  Those weren't new bidders, either.  Only one was a 0 feedback name.



What could they have been thinking?  I thought maybe they were shrinkwrapped or something, but no.  They aren't even first editions.



The sale specifically says that they are "old and have been used."

Whoah! VGC, you say? Count me in! :)

+++++

Reason #78 that Cougie is a clown:

That listing contains 649 words (beginning with "VGC" and ending above the PayPal logo).

The description of the item (which sucks, but bear with me) contains 22 words ... the rest is made up of The Coug's laugh-out-loud rules and regulations. And 22 words is actually a lot for a Cougie description.

Or, put another way, 96.6 percent of that listing is just an endless recitation of do's and do not's. If we have any budding eBay sellers out there, take this as free advice: that is a percentage guaranteed to drive away many potential bidders.

+++++

Edit: whoops, forgot to wave to Cougie ...

<<Hi, Cougar, you lurking feline, you!>> :wink:

Is this saying, in Italian, that the format of the publication is dead cardboard?

well, actually, it'd be "Formato"... anyway, copertina morbida it's meaning softback... soft=morbida, cover or back=copertina

morbida = soft?

copertina = cover?

So, "dead cardboard" was not really too far off of a  translation, was it?

I try not to say anything Negative about the cat, but this made me laugh as well:

Its great to know I have sold more items on ebay than all their combined pitiful entire web site members jealous efforts.




Assuming we don't count Guido (who has only made a few posts) we have Badmike with a comparable amount of sales.  



Plus, a combination of few others such as Myself, Deadlord, Killjoy, Clarkie, Reindeer, Vermillion, Xaxaxe and many others will easily exceed his sales.



Perhaps a better test would be to see how many members it would take to exceed the number of individuals who have left him negative feedback (47)  ?



(Actually, negative feedback is quite a bit higher since he has had many mutually withdrawn).

It would be a good test: 0 on 2855 for Beyonthebreach  8O (congratulations). Only 2 on 1130 for bclarkie, 1 on 1581 for killjoy, 1 on 1214 for vermillionfire, etc. It would be difficult to reach the 47 negatives on 6323 :)



hum no negative for me (but on a total of only 455 transactions). However I have some proud to have a 100% positive :)
