If one more trader at D- Street asks me for a blind box, I'm gonna lose it. Noobs beware... Don't risk buying these guys a chaser or a varient in trade for a common that you just need to complete a set. These guys are destroying what could be a really neat experience...
I have a stormtrooper. Can you buy me a blind box for trade? ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ lol Seriously, you can waste all your money like you mentioned looking for that one item that you want in a series or you can trade for it for a blind trade. Yes, there's a 1/24 chance it can be a chaser but the odds are really against your favor. I am one of those traders at D-St. who asks for blind boxes at times (so I can save money) and never once have I ever been fortunate enough to get a variant or a chaser. And if I like something enough for example the Cheshire Cat from AIW, I dont mind buying a blind box for it. It beats continuing to spend money looking for that one or two item. If I happened to have pulled a variant or chaser then kudos to that person. I still get what I want from the trade. That's just my opinion. - MickeyMax  16.9 #6519 2-18-12 12:41AM Like(5)  Reply
Unfortunately I don't have money to be buying blind boxes as traders. ย When I go to D-street I go to trade the vinyls I have, not buy new ones for someone else. ย To me it defeats the whole trading purpose...I understand if I do not have anything that the person I am trying to make a trade with is looking for... No problem, no hard feelings, I will move on... I just dont like being asked to go into a store and make a purchase, when I came there to TRADE not make trips to the atm. Normally I have found unless you have something worth more than the item you are trying to trade for they will not be interested I understand how things work commons for commons rare for rare. But this is not the feeling I get on D- street. I always feel like I am just being taken advantage of. Maybe it is just me, maybe I have just ran into the wrong people. No offense to anyone just puting this out for the people who feel like me... - BambooMike  133.4 #2762 2-18-12 3:46AM Like(4)  Reply

I think the opposite. As someone who doesnt have very many 3 inch vinyls to trade, I would rather buy one blind box and secure the one left than keep buying multiples of the set. That's my opinion. - bootheyodelingcowgirl  73.3 #3672 2-17-12 10:53PM Like(1)  Reply
Yes I see your point... But If I got someone a blind box and it turned out to be a chaser or variant, I'd be sickk!! And regret my trade for the rest of my vinyl collecting life... - BambooMike  133.4 #2762 2-17-12 11:20PM
I've had people ask to buy me blind boxes before. If I had gotten the chaser or variant I would not have felt comfortable keeping it from the trade. But every time someone has bought be a blind box it's never happened. - JessicaRabbit33  669.0 #219 2-18-12 2:45AM Like  Reply

That's the difference between collecting and taking advantage. I just don't like how some people want multiple boxes for one vinyl. I thought it would be a little more friendly place to trade. On the other hand it's just like baseball cards. You can't expect someone to trade their babe Ruth for a common player. So giving that person a chance at something good is ok. Just don't take advantage!!! - incredafam  6.1 #12328 2-18-12 3:48PM Like  Reply
That happened to me twice! First time that guy got a u8 gnome blind box that I got to trade for buzz ugh but yes u are so true never again am I going to do that just not fair. Darn those sharks! - MoNez  52.2 #4127 2-19-12 6:16PM Like  Reply

  
im kind of confused on why it is such a big deal if a trader is asking you to buy a blind box for the vinyl that you want... In the end yes they could possibly get a chaser or varient but thats a very unlikly chance (unless you are really good at picking them) IMO it is easier just to buy a 10-12 dollar blind box and have the vinyl i want locked in, instead of having to buy the same series over 20 twenty times and still not getting the one i want. so in the end you could either spend about maybe 200 dollars buying 20 different blind boxes in hopes for the one that you want, or you could just walk into d street buy one for about 10-12 (if you have an AP) and be done with it, you dont have to spend anymore money on that series hoping for the one that you want because now you have it.
I mean if the blind box for a vinyl trade bugs you soo much why do you still go down to d street and try to trade with them? What i dont understand when i read some of these mw post about d street trades is that it seems like they have never tried to actually talk to the people like humans instead they just assume they are all sharks and are wanting to screw them over. Maybe people should try to get to know some of them more and they will realize its not like that at all. I agree with MickeyMax, its the chances you take in buying the blind box for the other trader.

If a shark wants me to buy a blind box to trade a common, no problem......... But...... I open the box and if I decide Its an unfair trade then I keep the new figure or change the trade..... - georgieporgie  179.9 #2069 2-21-12 8:15PM Like  Reply
