Can any of you recommend places to trade/sell/buy other than eBay (and here, of course)? The eBay thing has been a little bit of a drag for a while and I'm just looking for some other options. Cheers!

I'm not a member myself, but a lot of the guys are trading on Facebook, if that's any good to you :scratch:

That sounds cool to me, thank you! Is there any particular page(s) that I should follow?

As with any trading/selling site- check feedback/history.

It's more of a problem with a buyer, and I try to give all bidders the benefit of the doubt. The guy has had the figure for weeks, and out of the blue I get a return request with the reason stating "I don't need it any more". I already shipped the thing insured for free, so I said nope. Ebay closed the case. Then he writes me an email accusing me of bidding him up from another account (obviously untrue, and impossible considering his first bid was in the last 3 seconds of the auction). Next thing I know he's filed a paypal claim under "item not as described", but in the notes he says the reason was that it was "overpriced". The thing is, I started the item low and he sniped at the last second and won, thus setting the price. Paypal said that they will be finding in my favor, but the guy has been a complete nightmare…. Any how, there has been a few buyers like this lately. There's gotta be a better way! head bang

Aside from Facebook there is also Esty you can get some good deals on there. Here are a few various places I have bought from so far. If you contact the owners I believe they will do trades as well. I am sure most of the guys know of these stores as well and hopefully will also let you know what they think good or bad.

Etsy.com although I never bought star wars toys from here yet I have bot other stuff it is much like ebay only no auctions that I recall.

Much thanks! I've bought some really cool stuff from Etsy before. I'll definitely check out the other sites. Cheers!
