Can anyone vouch for this guy?
hamilcar | eBay

Basically everything he sells is in shrinkwrap and it just seems a bit fishy.
He's got lots of +ve feedback but the -ve one says he lied in the description.

And a lot of the auctions say "in shrink but dinks on the corners" eg this AC8 :

I mean, all the pictures seem to be fine, but...

Most people won't put "factory shrinkwrap" in their listing unless it actually is.  By just saying it's "in the shrinkwrap", an unscrupulous seller can later claim that he/she hasn't actually deceived anyone.

Just my two cents.  It's probably just some store overstock, though you won't really know until you get the item home....

I have won a couple items from this seller and they were in original shrink. He has access to an old lot of items from a gaming store I believe. He has been very up front and honest in my dealings with him.

Hey Nev,
I have purchased a few items from him and the "corner dinks" appear to be rodent or insect damage(looks chewed, not dented). The items that he has that say pristine are usually what I call VF/NMIS, which is still pretty nice. The shrink appeared to be original.

I have also bought from him. His shrink items are legit but he tends to not state much beyond very minor defects. From what I have seen, these are gaming store stock that was tucked away for some time and have some age elements to show for it. I would agree with Burnie about condition and Mike's assessment that he is honest and up front...these are original shrink but not mint.
