Seriously, you are bitching about not getting a case hit or better out of two stinking boxes?

Umm, yea. I'm disappointed I didn't pull better auto's.

And wasn't comparing my pulls to case pulls. I'm comparing to a few pulls from individual boxes. Not like I said I was expecting to get auto wardrobes, printing plates, 5 autos, etc. in two boxes. Simply was hoping I'd get at least one top auto. Don't think hoping for that was too extreme lol

As far as the non costume autos go, Wheaton is one of the top ones.

1st box - sheldon red shirt (looks like a variant) and barry kripke auto
2nd box - penny floral shirt, amy plaid shirt, amy/sheldon dual and 2 autos (danica and wil wheaton)

how many of you have gotten 2 autos in one pack? cause that's what happened with my danica and wil wheaton... not complaining though this second box was pretty good

3rd box - leonard auto/wardrobe, penny floral, bernadette's scarf
4th box - bernadette floral, sweatpants auto
5th box - sheldon green shirt (m-08), howard/raj dual, christine baranski auto
6th box - howard auto/wardrobe, howard/bernadette dual, sheldon purple shirt, leonard blue shirt
7th box - rick fox auto, penny's pink pajamas, sheldon's green shirt (m-19)
8th box - stuart auto, raj's red jacket
9th box - danica auto, sheldon's purple undershirt
10th box - laurie metcalf auto, sheldon's light blue shirt, leonards grey sweatshirt
11th box - priya auto, raj's mom auto, raj/leonard dual, howard's green shirt
12th box - levar burton auto, amy's green shirt

Case Breakdown:
2 auto/wardrobes
12 regular autos (danica dup)
4 dual wardrobes
17 regular wardrobes

pretty satisfied, but wish i got a leonard or penny auto/wardrobe. no dupes except the danica auto which i don't mind. got my money's worth for sure.

Nice break!
5 hits in a box is pretty sweet too.
Did you mean to say that you wish you got a Sheldon and penny auto costume?

yeah but i'm perfectly happy with what i got. i can start looking for the ones i'm missing now and also sort all the base stuff to see how many sets i got. i figure if i got a few i'd keep 2 and sell the rest for like $7 shipped/per base set.

Sorry that happened to you. I was watching one seller on eBay who pre-sold over 30 cases of Big Bang dating back to October. Even though the case prices were great I couldn't get myself to pull the trigger on ordering from them. I figured there was no way he/she would be getting that many cases of this from Cryptozoic.

Wow..wonder if it was really stolen or if the distributor just saw the prices now and decided to say it was stolen and resell for more.

I'd be pretty annoyed no matter the reason since prices have went up considerably.

I usually do not comment on such things, as I am very very careful of taking preorders on *hot* sets like BBT and WD, and I avoid interwebz drama as much as I can. BUT I've been told by a few people who ordered with this particular seller that they were refunded due to "no cases available" which really is bs.

I believe (not 100% certain) some may up their preorders to help with allocations, therefore try and presell as much as possible. I don't believe people should play that game, and in the end it will bite them.

Of course I've been begging Miranda & Scott to be able to order direct, due to increase in my orders, but nevertheless they have no room (yet).

Regardless of all that, I'm very sorry you experienced something like that. I know blowout, and DA do a not do that, as well as many of us smaller sellers.

I called paypal about it and they can still get our money back. There is actually a 180 day window on sellers (who knew?). I've got my dispute started already

can't do anything through ebay, but the guy i was talking to at paypal was very helpful. I have to go through paypal Australia, but you shouldn't have any drama's. They said to me that they have flagged him, so if a few other people burnt follow through, then maybe we can get this scum bag booted. I was fuming when i got the email not as a message though ebay, but straight to my email address. Knew it was dodgy straight away.

no .. dont assume that ..
file and complain to both ebay and paypal .. and report any email / off ebay messages to ebay

if even past a deadline - still report it. as others add to the story they (pp / ebay ) will have a record of what is going on

might also mention the december walking dead situation - to let pp/ebay see that pattern
(read an nscf post)

good luck

Sorry to bring a downer to everyones awesome breaks, but for anyone interested this is the email we recieved.

too all the big bang theory case purchasers, we have bad news to share. We got home today and seen that the cases did not come yet so we went and check the confirmation number, it stated that the cases were delivered. We then check again outside. No cases. I then went and called UPS and they called the driver and cases were delivered to the front porch. I then knocked on my neighbors doors and asked if they seen anything, my next door neighbor said he heard the UPS truck pull up but did not see anything. This is not the first time this happened. Back in December I had three cases of the walking dead go missing. We thought that due to the holidays it was an isolated incident. we have a feeling now that we have someone that knows our release schedule and knows products coming in to us. We filed a police report. 12 cases were stolen and we are in a rage that nobody seen anything. I talked to our supplier and asked if they had cases they could supply me to get this order fulfilled and they are sold out. I spent the last few hours contacting dealer friends and they are sold out as well. I put in an insurance claim threw UPS and we remember from the walking dead cases it took them around 3 weeks for them to pay the full claim amount which is our cost per case. We feel horribly sorry and mad due to we are unable to fulfill your orders. I hope are feedback shows that we have a wonderful track record and we hope you work with us on our feedback. If you feel you have to open a claim threw paypal or ebay feel free. We will work on getting everyone refunded as quickly as possible. I personally have to make a trip tomorrow to western PA so I will get back around 10 PM Saturday. I will let you know if anything pop’s up on cases available which I pray I have better news soon.

Good lord, who the hell are you people buying from? That thing looks like it was typed up by a 7th grader who failed 3rd grade English. Gotta call BS on that hard core. If you had 3 cases of WD stolen, don't you think you'd make darn sure somebody was home to receive your $7500 worth of BBT cases? Seriously.

Totally sucks for those who are stuck having to file claims now. I hope they make it right and you guys get prompt refunds, etc.

The most confusing thing is he has a 100% feedback of 1671. No negs and only 1 neutral. Thought it was a safe bet. Wrong!!!!
