Info: Buyer Beware - ebay seller

If you are a frequent ebay buyer or even someone who buys Star Wars figures from online stores, please beware of this seller on ebay: oldtymehw. He is slow to answer emails, and slow to deliver the goods. I purchased 3 R2-D2 figures and the conformation email stated that it could take 2-3 weeks for the order to arrive. It’s been over a month and still nothing. I called them and one of the figures they were out of and the other 2 would ship within the next 5-7 days. I cancelled the whole thing and getting a refund. I read the sellers feedback profile and they have had a few problems in the past but things seemed to have gotten better. Or so I thought. I’m not usually one to hold past mistakes against a person, but 4 weeks was a little much. When I called and found out that the one R2 was out and the others still hadn’d shipped I just gave up. Requested my refund. We’ll see how long that takes.

They also have an onlie store called Old Tyme Toy Store. I wouldn’t recomend ordering from them either. If their ebay reputation is this messed up I can just imagine what their online store is like. Stick with Cloud City Collectibles. They are much more reliable.
