Is there a list of trusted ebay sellers? (If they say it's Takara, it's Takara.)

Hi, I was wondering if there is a list of trusted ebay sellers? (If they say it's Takara, it's Takara.)

Sorry if I asked this a few weeks ago inside a thread. I didn't see the question asked but I may have missed it.

Thanks!

ToySpark. They are based in Hong Kong, have over 30,000 reviews, and I have bought quite a few MP's from them with always a positive experience. They're also generally cheaper than Japanese Ebay sellers.

Anyone dealt with this guy? He has a lot for sale but he claims they're Takara but his prices are a bit hard to believe on some of them. I didn't find his name on either list using the their forums search feature.

Thanks!

The posting itself doesn't claim it's Takara Tomy, and neither does it state "Takara Tomy" under item specifics.

Even though it says "Takara Tomy" in the title, nobody takes it seriously because people say all kinds of things in the title to get hits.

The best way is to message them and ask point-blank if it is genuine Takara Tomy.

However, any listing from China with questionable info and omissions in the posting smells knock-off to me.

All that I know is that if someone is selling an mp ironhide for $40usd then it is either a ko or it will never ship.
You're looking for a deal but you're going to end up up with a claim

That is a KO. I highly recommend never buying from a seller based in China. If you want official Takara products, only purchase from Hong Kong or Japan. Like I said earlier, Toyspark is a trusted Ebay seller since I have confirmed all of my MP purchases from them to be authentic. Also they are based in Hong Kong and do not sell any 3rd party or KO products.

Here's a link to their seller page if you want to check them out:

Thanks everyone for all the info. I knew the chances that it was authentic was about zero but I figured it didn't hurt to ask.
