All vanished now.
AFAIK, the listings weren't pulled, but ended...

Since I was curious about the Xena figure, after 10 bids, she went for £34.90 - I paid $50 something for the real one in 2017.

Hi all,

Thanks for your feedback. Decided to give the minis a miss in the end. No regrets so far...

Good call. Too many red flags!

Up close the details do look suspiciously soft. Especially the slotta text.
Soft details are obvious, but slotta text quality isn't always a good indicator: I've received identical figures directly from GW, with the text not always right position and/or not clear. Since it was either going to be clipped or glued into a slot, I was only concerned with the rest of the figure.
