    Hi, thought this might be a good idea given all the dealing and wheeling done here on the boards amongst forum members. There's a similar thread over at the Palisades Toys forum, and it's a pretty good indicator of who's done good deals in the past, so they can be trusted for potential future deals as either buyers or sellers.

    Here, I'll start off.
    Number of stars indicates number of deals done.

    Good Seller:
    MuppetDude *
    Blinky_Fish ***
    Justin Faulknor ****
    Oh, and can we please make this thread another sticky thread Phillip? Thanks and hope this provides a much-needed service to all the traders on the boards.

    Collectmuppets is a wonderful seller! I bought from a him a Region 1 & 4 DVD of The Muppet Christmas Carol...in WIDESCREEN! Just finished watching it a few minutes ago, so cool!

    Anyway, I definitely recommend him as a seller to everyone.

    P.S. Great idea Count!

    Bad Seller Alert.

    Hey guys... This is an alert to all who might be reading this thread.

    Do not trust Andrew Turppa, known as Scooter101. Did a deal with him in early May of 2005, but he has yet to respond to my messages nor has he sent me the tapes bought in our deal.
    Seems he's been conducting some spotty business with other forum members.
    So, if he contacts you for a potential deal, try to find some alternative method of getting what it is you're discussing in the deal. Find someone else or another vendor who's willing to negotiate for the goods you want.
    Just trying to help others avoid what I went through with this guy.

    Hope this helps and have a good day.

    Hi guys. Just wanted to send a shout out to kuzeh. We finalized a deal recently, he informed me he received the merchandise within a week of being shipped.

    Recommend kuzeh as a good seller, rully helped with communications to speed along the deal and it all worked out in the end.
    Good trader, hope you guys find others who are great dealers here on the boards.

    And remember to use this thread to alert others of who's a good or bad seller/trader/dealer.
    Have a great weekend.

    Phillip Chapman is an awesome person to deal with!! My figures got here fast and in perfect condition! And our transaction were easy and fun I think! Thanks Phillip!

    Phillip gets a 5/5 from me! :)

    I also had a recent trade with Phillip Chapman and it was great! The first online trade I have ever made. All of my figures arrived in superb condition. Probably one of the real honest sellers anywhere. You can't go wrong when dealing with him. I give him 5/5 as well. Thank you, Phil, for your honest and prompt business. It took only a little after a week for my figures to arrive after sending my check.

    I'd like to leave a positive feedback for Phil. Got the Deadly yesterday and I am very happy with it. Thanks Phil!

    Hey Fozzie... When did you end up paying Phillip? Did he send you some sort of message with the tracking number or something like that?
    Just wondering and hoping, maybe my items have already been sent in the mail. Still waiting with nary a word, would like to be assured it's coming though.
    Oh well, glad you had a good transaction with Phillip.

    Fozzie New Member

    I sent him a check a while ago. I got the Deadly yesterday like I said. I guess it just took a little while since it was Christmas.
  13. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    OK, thanks. Paid him off for the figures I bought a bit before Christmas too. Guess he hasn't checked the boards lately.
    Oh well, I hope the items are on their way.

    I also want to give props to another good seller, Rosewood, she was very professional and fast in service. I recieved two very good quality DVDs from her, I definitely recommend her to any of you interested in obtaining older SS episdoes.

    ITA with Fatblue! Rosewood also sent me a great Dvd of classie Seasme street!!

    Thanks Guys! Just to clarify one thing, though......

    I really appreciate the good words. Thanks guys! But just to clarify one thing for people who may be reading this: I don't actually "sell" per-say, I just trade. For people who don't have anything to trade, I accept empty discs as payment, but never $$$.:)

    I got my first bad trade with Barry Lee (who told me that he will not be trading anything anymore). Believe it or not, it was a year ago when I sent him stuff. (I was pretty darn determined to get the stuff from him; he had the 30th anniversary special and "Julie on SS"!)

    He offered me:

    TimePiece
    The Frog Prince
    The Muppets Go Hollywood
    Of Muppets and Men
    The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 Years
    Sesame Street: 20 Years and Counting
    The Muppets Celebrate Jim Henson
    Big Bird's Birthday Bash

    Then:

    Julie on Sesame Street
    Muppets on Puppets
    Stars and Street Forever
    Big Bird's Birthday
    The Muppets Go Hollywood
    Some Muppet PSA's

    Then he broke the news to me yesterday that he won't trade anymore, so now I sent him 7 hours worth of stuff with nothing in return.

    Yet, I still consider him one of my good friends. He's a good guy, but this trade has got me really upset. So I'm confused. What should I make of it?
