    I cannot stand ebay dealers like this guy right here... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=475&item=2234892237

    He is selleing that elven warrior sword as the sword that is in the pic, but the sword in the pic is the actual weta prop, but his sword has the exact same specs as this one... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2234651758&category=475

    The difference between sellers is, the first guy does not tell you he is selling an unlicensed sword, and he provides the pic of the real prop! The second guy gives you the pic of the sword he is actually selling, and tells you it is a knock-off. Don't let sellers like the first guy give ebay a bad name, there are just bad sellers. I wish I was an interent cop and I could print the page of the sale, buy the sword, and then get him convicted of something because he did not deliver what he advertised.

    The really sad thing is that he has done this before with this and other 'LOTR' items, and has had positive feedback from the buyers! I read recently that in cases like this on ebay people are now starting to put in extremely high bids and then not paying at the end of the auction.......hmmmmmm

    Well you'd hope so, but just look at the feedback - must be some real dullards out there ;)
