I just ordered one, and it went through!  If it was a boo-boo, it's a big boo-boo, but generally eBay and PayPal stand behind buyers, not sellers!

Went to try too  but does not let me log in (I'm from UK) tried UK Ebay and no sign of the listing there, seller has 98.9% positive feedback on 86 sales, hope it works out for you Jennings, be interesting to see what happens!

 

10th October is our release date according to Wonderland Models, £125 discounted there (ouch) might wait until Christmas and let the price come down a little.

So if its not a scam, and this guy really did make a mistake, is it fair to hold him to the deal?

So if its not a scam, and this guy really did make a mistake, is it fair to hold him to the deal? 

To me it is the same as when a seller has a starting bid twice the current selling price on eBay.

I once wrote to a seller informing him in a courteous way that there is an error in his listing. He responded in a very insulting manner to mind my own business.

So, If and when I see a listing with a low starting price or low buy it now price I buy and and I say nothing else.

If a seller is so uninformed and or just plain lazy to search for the same item on eBay to see what the current pricing is then that is his problem, not mine. 

Once an item has been sold it becomes a second hand thing and the pricing will vary as to the current market, how many people want that item, how much the seller wants to try to get his money back, etc. 

Let the buyer, and the seller beware.
