In a way, I'm happy to wait for the 25th Anniversary case, I'll be saving more money with my premium pass, and getting the items legitimately without any concern for "where" these items came from, so it's all good!
Whether or not this is "innocent" we'll never know, and I guess we can assume either way!
But I agree, I don't think we'll be seeing anymore of these cases other than ebayers who are reselling their original purchases.
His name and address were always visible for everyone to see. He remained in constant contact with those who messaged him throughout the shipping process.
Chances are these were accidentally sold, and he just happened to be at the right place at the right time. Perhaps Disney put a stop to it by offering to buy them back from him. Perhaps he oversold what he had. Perhaps, he's telling the truth and his storage locker was broken into. But a far larger percentage of people received their products, and the rest received a refund and an explanation.
He had them, he never tried to hide the fact that he had them, and he carried through on every promise with the initial shipments. Still can't understand why some have some strange vendetta out for this guy.

@Toad_Passenger: While I agree with the innocent until proven guilty comment, I can see why people would be questioning why cases of Vinylmations that aren't scheduled for release until May appear on ebay. (25th anniversary cases)
He was a very legitimate seller no doubt, and cases were shipped immediately to happy buyers, and he was very communicative and responsive with buyers, from what I've been reading.
I can also see why people would question the source of these items. I don't think anyone has a vendetta against the guy, but rather, people are trying to sort out in
their heads how something came on the marketplace, especially items that aren't available to the consumer through Disney.
It's more than likely legitimate, as I don't think someone would go public on a well known site like ebay, and take their chances with items if they were from a questionable source, but then again, people do crazy, bold stuff!
Either theory is 50/50, but I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt unless proven otherwise.

@Toad: I didn't realize the extent of the backlash against the seller, my bad!
Also forgot about the January release getting moved up, so that makes sense!
At any rate, I agree! Let's hope for another run like this in the future!
I would agree that you might want to purchase these at a decent price while you can (me included) from members who aren't asking for your first born as payment. Who know what happened or what will happen.

What on earth are people filing claims for? This has gotten way out of hand if people received their products in great condition they should leave it at that, and be happy!
Wooooow, why the (blank) would they do that? That makes no sense at all.
Suppose people are greedy, the reason he has them is qc, its not like he will open every box to check quality. Sounds like people who got a few dodgy ones can't sell them on at rip off rates and are pissed off.
To the members here who are participating in that nonsense, I have one word for you: pathetic.
Yeah, I've heard of this now. It seems that the FF still had QC problems and people are trying to do "partial refund" scams by saying the product is not as described, since he didn't note they were defective. People suck.
ETA: This isn't new. I sold a TS Buzz Lightyear awhile back. It was obvious from his big head who it was, so I never opened it up. I guess it had 1 or 2 paint marks on it when the buyer opened it, and, since I didn't open it and specifically mention it, I got hit as the seller.
