    I just wanted to "out" JediMike1 on this...


    http://www.rpf.invisionzone.com/index.php?...=100522&hl=luke

    As you can see I was the first to request the item. I had full intention of purchasing it. I asked for pictures and he said he would send a few. Next thing I know the thread is marked as SOLD and there is someone else in the thread who expressed interest.

    I think that maybe he knows I want the item so he marked it sold. Then I ask the member who posted after me and he said he purchased it. This kind of thing is very shady and I just wanted to out this member for it.

    This thread is pretty petty and immature if you ask me.What are you like 5? I was ready to pay, I paid him immediately.I didn't beat around the bush like you did.
    As far as Shady? Dude, get a life and grow up.

    Hmm...looks like the old saying 'you snooze,you lose' is applying here.

    Scarecrow if all you did is ask for Pics then its your fault for not acting quickly.

    According to the thread I see Streetjudge79 was the first to claim payment being said and thus has rights to the piece....in addition if you just PMed for pics or interest that will never trump a ready to pay customer....this is one of those cases where you might be trying to throw someone under the bus but you are going to instead find that you are the one under the axle...............

    But shouldn't the seller at least have honoured the fact that someone asked for pictures?

    Yes usually people just ask to see, but many woudl like to see what the item is like before plunking down money for it.

    this happened to me once and made me furious, I PMd a seller and asked what teh total was to ship to my addrss and I would send paypal right away...next thing I knew three days later it was sold.

    The fact is first come first serve should mean just that, not first standing with money waved in the face should get it.

    And no offense intended to either side, but really the seller shoudl have been more responisble and told street judge that he had someone interested and if he said no then the item was his.

    For some reason my sent items aren't saved but I said I was very serious about the item and all I wanted were some pictures before I went ahead and paid. I didn't blame the buyer, only the seller, but as seen in this thread and judging by the PMs he has sent me he's to blame as well. There is no need for name calling.

    Oh and on another note, the seller didn't even bother to tell me he sold it.

    Not if the guy only wanted pics. Besides, the sideshow luke is all over ebay, there are tons of pics of it everywhere..Scarecrow, do you know what GOOGLE is? Sounds like Scarecrow was wasting time to me.He can find this readily available for the same price anywhere on the net. I was ready to pay, I stepped up, Scarecrow didn't and lost out. Now he wants to make the seller look bad?
    COME ON.. I can't believe this guy even started this rediculous topic to badmouth Jedimike

    Why did you need to see pics?

    A Sideshow collectible should be well known to you if interested at all.

    If it was a custom made part, maybe you need to see pics first.

    Sorry. You snooze you lose.

    And starting this thread is petty and childish.

    Well, generally, if someone asks ME for pics............then someone else says "I'll take it."............... I'll just sell it to THEM. Why send pics to someone so they can "decide" if they want it, and risk losing the guaranteed sale with the second guy? I've done both, and had both blow up in my face, so it's a gray area.:\

    But I don't think it's "shady". Shady would be promising it to you, then selling it to the second guy because that guy offered more money. Or taking your money ANYWAY, then selling it to that guy. But requests for pics are a dime a dozen, like "ooh, I wish I could afford that"s, or "I'd be interested if"s.............

    Hell, I've even had THIS one, after a dozen "very interested" PMs over a week's time:
    "Consider it sold. I just have one more question- Is it free of nicks, dings, dents, or scratches? I only collect pristine props".

    WTF.?? Is it sold or NOT?? Why ask a question AFTER the fact? So I told him it had a pinhole sized SPOT, and never heard from him again. Big surprise. RPF/TDH member, too.

    Ebay patterns tend to affect our judgment, too. A lot of "Question for seller" emails I get, never seem to follow through and bid. I just *LOVE* the ones who say they "want it, but........Do you have better pics"? If the pics are that bad, then why do you want it? How will a slightly better pic make you want it "more"?? Oooops, sorry, somebody just used Buy It Now.........you snooze you lose.

    Like THAT.

    I wanted pics because these are known to have varying paint jobs. StreetJudge, stop trying to get an angry response out of me because you wont.

    I gotta agree with the above post....I've been burnt by "...can you just hold it a couple of days, I really want it I just have to get the $ together....", then to have them bail in the end after you tell others it's on hold. In the future, if someone wants an item held, send a deposit...then I'll hold it for you. And if you bail after that, then you lose the deposit. Then you will find out how serious the potential buyer is....

    But, like stated above, it looks like to got sniped.....part of the joy of buying through the JY.

    Actually , when someone like you comes here to bash a completely innocent seller because you can't handle things maturely,then you get what you deserve pal.

    Enough, guys.

    Scarecrow, this is not the way to handle this issue. If you've got an issue with another member, you need to take it to PM or email.

    Let's face it. The seller owns the item. He can pick and choose all day long who he wants to sell it to. Most people who are selling items need the cash, and will sell it to whoever says "I'll take it" first, but the seller isn't obligated in any way to do that.

    Being a cautious buyer is smart, but it may on occasion slow things down a bit. Others who throw caution to the wind take their chances, but may end up with the prize.

    Sounds like you should have said, "I'll take it, pending pics"... it may have worked better for you in this situation, but who knows. Communication and attitude are both very important when working out a deal with someone.
