I find USA is fine, USPS first class mail international is farily cheap for smaller packages and two weeks at the most.

That's my preference and never had an issue However many power sellers in the US would opt for USPS Priority Mail International which costs about double, as unfortunately USPS First Class International is not registered and the sellers are not covered against mishaps.

Seller and listing removed by eBay, have filed a dispute with Paypal.

That's some tough luck there dude, hope you can get your money back promptly. The last time this happened to me it took Paypal a month to refund the money back into my card.

Yeah, I have to wait til 7 Oct to see if Seller replies. Oh well... you win some you lose some hey. I kind of felt that the Seller may not have been 100% honest when I bid on his items but I figured it was worth the risk since I really want a MISB G1 Megatron more than ANY other TF toy or collectable (the other one on my most wanted list was a 2008 BotCon SG Megs - which I now have ). I'm back to square one now and on the search again for a MISB G1 Megatron.

Anyways... other items I'm now waiting on are:

TF2007 Voyager Starscream MISB
RotF Voyager Starscream MISB
DotM Deluxe Starscream MOSC
