WOW i just went to the german ebay site and i was amazed to see the faceplates listed there... Call of duty 4 plates are everywhere and there are several other rare plates like lost planet, adidas, ghost recon and more. Would any of you, by any chance, speak german? Wanna help me buy stuff?

If they don't show up on ebay.com then they probably don't ship to the U.S.

Don't forget that Germans don't accept PayPal and shipping to USA is about 20 EUR (ouch) ... if you need a particular faceplate just ask .... me, I can hook you up with pretty much anything ;)

... lost planet, adidas, ghost recon ... do you have the money ready, which one you want :cool:

First, cheesymonkey, don't bail on the guy, 'cause it's stuff like that is the reason they don't want to sell to US people. Ask him if he can ship it cheaper via surface to save a few bucks if it's that big a deal.

Or like my mom would say, "go mow a lawn." LOL!

I alwaos search eBay through advanced search. I open it up to all countries (understanding that some of them won't ship here to the US). I enter in the search field "360 faceplate -guitar -controller". I don't do -skin because some of the cool plates come with skins. When I remember it, I do the same with "face plate" instead of "faceplate" because it will pick up auctions that the other search missed.

Im not bailing on him... his shipping was high but i was gonna get it. I got outbid though so it doesnt matter. Btw, i knew .de was for deutschland... i had a german exchange student live with me for a year, and i took 2 years of german(which i struggled in)

my happy hunting grounds have been found, curses ;)

ebay.co.uk oozes quality faceplates too, you can almost always sweet talk the sellers into sending to US/Canada if you don't mind the swift kick in the junk from shipping/duty hehe

Well I know that there is no more shipping surface from the US to other countries (that went away when the rates changed back in March) so I am assuming that the reverse is true. I could be wrong though. International surface mail was not profitable for the Post Office so they got rid of it and now you can only ship first class, priority, or express (all air services). I had to send a defective faceplate back to the UK and it cost me almost $10 and it was only packaged in a light weight bubble envelope. Just about every customer that ships internationally complains about how expensive it is. I don't think they understand what all is involved with shipping a package overseas. Then again they might just be cheap since customers also like to complain about stamps being 41 cents and refuse to pay the extra 10 cents to ship something priority. :rofl:

OK, enough German bashing. There's good and bad people everywhere.

I think if there's a generalization to be made here that is relevant to our forums, it is that Asian sellers are much more likely to sell to a US buyer than European sellers are.

yeah true, I wasn't bashing Germans really, because Hitler didn't care about them either really, they only thing he cared about was his precious Aryan Race, which were no better that every other human being. But your right end of topic, why can't evryone just get along, the world would be so much better.
