Ok here's where the problem is. Obviously there are a lot of people that want the MP-10 all over the planet. Even in the areas where he is sold (Like the U.S.,)he is very hard to come by. So you already have a bunch of people wanting it. So then it shows up on Amazon UK for like 1/3 of what the price should be. So you have people from all over the world placing orders for it because it is rare and here's a chance to get it. Obviously due to the price people are in disbelief that it is going to actually go through, but a lot of people take the chance as here's a chance to get a figure that they haven't been able to get at all. And many people send messages to Amazon asking about it trying to find out if it is legitimate and what's going on. In the meantime, everyone waits.
So as most were assuming was going to happen, the item is taken down from Amazon UK and emails are sent out that due to the incorrect prices being posted, they are cancelling the orders. So Jin shows up on the TFW boards and says that he was the informant to Amazon and he told them about the incorrect price and that everyone who was trying to get a figure at a discount is a thief and deserves to be treated like a thief. And that anyone who purchases items at discounts are thieves as well. Personally I just thought he was joking (Because for one, with so many people emailing Amazon about the figure I highly doubt one person made any difference over anyone else) but it kept going. And then someone said Jin posted on Twitter or something that Amazon gave him £50 for pointing out the mistake. Which again I took as a joke, and didn't really care either way. But then you have all the people actually IN the UK and other places around the world who saw this as their one chance to actually get the figure and this one guy is basically telling them off saying "Nope! Thanks to ME no one is getting the figure, and you should all be ashamed that you even thought you had a chance to get it for less than the MSRP, oh by the way, I was rewarded for making it that way." Now I don't know what the reasoning was for the ban as I personally hadn't read the thread in a couple days and now it's locked so I don't know where it went from there. But from what I saw, Jin did appear to be a douchebag and did have a lot of TF Fans mad at him even though, in my opinion, he didn't do anything more than 100 others also did. He just made sure to point it out and tried to make it look like he was the sole person to blame. Jin wanted to be the douchy martyr for whatever reason and succeeded and then the other people wanted to get rid of the douchy martyr and they succeeded. So I guess everyone won? The whole thing is pretty childish and stupid in all reality, but welcome to Transformer collecting.
