It was a little high but had some good stuff in it.  The condtions were very nice as well.

The starting bid is plausible at $200 but the BIN is totally outlandish at $2000...

I know Frank Mentzer stands up for T&T being a good guy but at this point I think he definitely belongs on the shady dealers thread.

How many times has he been told this image is stolen from another website and they continue to use it and claim a copyright on it nonetheless.

I just sent TrollandToad an email letting them know that they are still stealing someone else's image and that they violate their own statement at the bottom of the auction:

"inhouse images and inhouse photos © and â„¢ Webbed Sphere Inc"

Their response:

"Hi: Please reread the auction text. It says inhouse images are copyright by us. It doesn't say that the image portrayed is either our inhouse image or copyrighted. Jon"


Great job guys!  I guess they feel it is okay to steal other peoples images as long as they don't take credit for them.

Yeah, it was probably renhovek who bought it to. :roll:

BTW, did any one catch the shipping cost to the UK on that auction? How about $54.00  :evil:

He removed the listing because I showed him where the image was taken from.  Hopefully it will get fixed this time.

BTW, the shipping to Canada was $54 as well.

Hmm, looks quite similar to this one:

http://home.flash.net/~brenfrow/rp/rp-r2.htm

I am sure Adrian would be quite happy to know that they are ripping his pictures off and claiming them as thier own.  :roll:   You would think that if they had the nuts to actually list that R2 for $840 then the least could do is take thier own f**king picture of it. The sad part is that I have dealt with them once myself(off Ebay for the Warriors of Mars) and everything went off without a hitch.  That being said IMO they are a half step up from the Cougars and Creeps of the world...

After I laid into him a bit for relisting an auction that we previously pointed out to him had a stolen image, I also went through the rarer catagories in their store and pointed out 4 more pictures taken from the Acaeum.  

He seems like he would like to get the problem fixed but ... we'll see if he changes the ones I pointed out.

No, that could easily go for that much. That's about $450 a pack, which is actually on the cheap side.

I collected MTG cards for years but unfortunately didnt get into it until after the Revised edition was released.  I missed out on all of the really rare Alpha, Beta, and Unlimited cards.  Hell, I could finance my entire wedding and honeymoon just by selling a few of these cards.

So how do you explain the shipping charge?  $340 for priority mail within the US?  Even if the package weighed 70 lbs and was 26"x26"x26", the postage would only be $128.
