    Hi, I was just curious whether or not anyone has had any bad experiences with moviebits? I am considering getting something from them, just wandering their past. Thanks

    They are fine - just very expensive IMHO.

    jedistinker (dave) is the owner and a member here.

    i have no problems recommending him.

    the price you see may not be the price you pay if you ask nicely :)

    i have seen several things offered very cheap, you just have to be at the right place at the right time

    Thanks, also what about rareprops.net? I am considering a few different things, just trying to figure out who to and who not to buy from. Thanks again

    I've used Moviebits in the UK many times and they've always been reliable - when I've ordered on the phone I've had the item the next day just about every time :)

    Dave's a good dude, and his shipping from the UK takes like 35 minutes. :D

    Rareprops can be difficult to contact, although I've not dealt with them much personally.

    I've purchased from both and can tell you to stay away from Rareprops.
    They have the terms of the MPA listed on their site but they have no desire to follow them...at least in my situation.

    I purchased an item from them nearly a year ago and did not get the COA from them. I've now written to them 4 times AFTER reporting them to Ebay for not following through on the contract we agreed to and still have not gotten a simple COA in the mail.

    I've gotten almost nothing but a bad attitude from them from the beginning. When bringing up the COA, they turned it into something else than it was. The automatically assumed I was questioning their reputation when all I wanted was the COA they said would come with it in the auction. If it's one thing I hate it's when I get screwed and the ones doing it try to turn it around to make it seem like I'm the bad guy for even asking.

    Thanks for bringing them up cuz' now I can write to them yet again asking for the rest of my auction to be completed almost a whole year later.

    No, but I am moving to Ireland in just under two months.
    And thanks to everyone for your information and your help.
