I have found a few good dealers but am looking to expand and the ones that i buy from dont always have the stuff i want.

Have you tried posting in the wanted section here to see if any forum member dealers can help. Also check the dealer directory, there are a few of us who will always try to help or recommend someone who can.

I would like to say it's a pleasure to do business with Colin MacLeod. He is Kymar on the forum. I think in all my year's of collecting I have never encounterd a better person as far as grading 40" x 60"s. I looked for a long time for a MINT "Octopussy" 40" x 60" and then spotted one on his website. As most people know these large poster's in most cases have condition problems. The one Colin had was MINT. I wanted this so badly that I traded a 1968 set of re-release lobby cards from the double bill of "Thunderball/From Russia With Love" for it. Colin took great close up pictures of this "Octopussy" 40 x 60. He was reluctant to call it MINT and does not even use the term MINT on his website. He only uses NEAR MINT. I worked the trade with Colin and the Bond poster is perfect. I just got it back from the framers and had it framed with a double mat. It's just like being back in June of 1983 when I saw "Octopussy". The poster is superb!!! I would highly recommend Colin and his company. I also bought another cardboard stock 40" x 60" from Colin. It is a 1968 Frank Frazetta poster from "Your's, Mine & Our's" and to my surprise this poster from way back in 1968 is MINT in condition too!!! I will ONLY buy 40" x 60" posters from Colin because he's right on target as far as grading. He also ship's posters perfectly. Colin told me that the Lucille Ball/Henry Fonda poster was misgraded by accident and was in very good condition and not near mint. Even with Colin's extreme honesty the poster is STILL in MINT condition to me. One very tiny border tear and NOT even into the artwork.

Thank you Colin for being a GREAT asset to the hobby. You are certainly a dealer to look up to as far as how to conduct business. You have integrity!!! Four Star Seller!!! I bet Colin grades ALL material's like he grade's his 40 x 60's. His company is: http://www.ckmac.com and his company name is C.K. MacLeod Collectibles.

Very Gratefully, Tom

I wish to post HarryPotter Order Of Phoenix The Posters are quite large in resolution. How do I?

Fortunately I've had mostly pleasant experiences with ebay but last year I got swindled by a German poster seller who calls himself kinosammler and who I had bought a Polish poster of before and there was no problem there. The second time I tried to order posters from him I got scammed. I won two Polish posters, one that I didn't know what movie it was for but the image was just great and the second one was for A Short Film About Killing, a great poster that goes for well over 100 dollars but here I got it for about 70. Also I was bidding on that for a friend who doesn't have an ebay account. After I had been waiting for some time for the posters I got an email saying that because of some new postal regulations in Germany for postal tubes my shipment had been delayed and asked if I wanted a refund. I trusted the guy so I said, no, I really want those posters and I don't mind waiting. A wait I did. I got a second email talking about something similar and again he asked if I wanted a refund. Again I said I'd rather get the posters. His emails were all very courteous so I really had no way of distrusting the guy. Then the emails stopped coming and I contacted ebay and paypal because of this. He didn't answer any of their emails so there was nothing they or I could do. By this time my chance of giving him feedback was passed so I had no way of giving him negative feedback. I suspect that he got a better offer for the A Short Film About Killing poster from someone offline and took that. The ****. Worst of all I have never found the other poster on ebay again and my friend who I was bidding for doesn't want to deal with ebay because of this. So now I almost only but from emovieposters.com because of their fantastic range of posters and I trust them compeletely. Once I got a Deathship poster from them and saw that I had mistakenly gotten two copies of it. I contacted them to see if they wanted it back but they said that sending it back would be too much of a hassle and told me that I could keep it. Good peoples.

I'd just like to take a moment to commend the excellent personal customer service we're getting from Rich Halegua on the scandalously underused www.movieposterbid.com auction site.
We realise it's unlikely to compete in terms of scale with eBay, but it's sure as h**l got them beat on looking after their clients.
It's totally FREE to list items for sale ... so, even if you're only selling the occasional item, it's costing absolutely zero until the sale has taken place ... and even then, it's a very low cost.
I would urge sellers and buyers to give it a try!
Best wishes, Terry (www.quadbod.co.uk)

I had known Greg for some time and you are right he needs counseling especially at his old warehouse where all his posters were stored. but i give him the benefit of doubt because i don't know if any one knows but at the time i knew him he Had over 200,000 posters i used to help him but he turned from Dr. Jeckel to Mr. Hide a real psycho.

I have had the most unpleasent experiences dealing with Greg Egbert aka movieposterbargains on ebay. Poor Customer service isn't even in the ballpark. I don't know if it is poor organization, if his is mentally deficient, or if he is plain dishonest, but he is unbelievable to deal with.

I can bore you all with the details of my story, or recall stories of others whom I have contacted after they have had such negative experiences purchasing posters from this guy, but instead, I'll keep it general.

I welcome anyone to take a look at his guys feedback (even the neutral or postive feedback). I can't believe this guy at all. After winning an auction, there is a unnessesary process to follow to make the payment. If he doesn't screw up and he actually ships your poster, you won't get it for 4-6 weeks. The worst part is when trying to contact/communicate with this guy. He is very abrasive and to be quite honest, a real a$$hole. After first dealing with this guy, I stopped using ebay to pruchase posters for my collection. I started back out there again after hearing others having the same experiences as I had. I decided to contact a few of the other buyers and was surprised to hear almost everyone had similar feedback (even the people who gave positive feedback). Incredible!

In a nut shell, I think it is amazing that this guy hasn't fell off the face of the planet yet. I have to wonder how he got to be such a jerk. Is it the stress of selling things on ebay?


All I know is he is giving the movie poster world a bad name. Heck, he is giving the ebay world a bad name. My advise is to stay the heck away from this guy!

Hi There,

I just want to mention the excellent service provided by Jon at www.amoviemasterpiece.co.uk.

I came across his web site through this forum, to which I have recently joined. I was looking for a Die Hard One sheet for a friend and came across one at Jon's Site. He answered my queries quickly and was only to happy to send me further photos. He was also very honest about it's condition, which was very good except for a couple of surface wear marks. A price was agreed and the poster arrived quickly and safely.

Overall a very pleasant experience.

I've been collecting since 1997. My draw to poster collecting is my love of independent film. The key to fun, successful collecting in my experience has been knowing who I'm buying from or not buying at all. Collectors are jumping on eBay under the impression they're saving money on originals without an original to compare to unaware they're simply buying overpriced reprints from an endless supply. There's too many good sellers/dealers to risk buying from unknown ones.

A few of the best of the best I've dealt with:

Colin Macleod - ckmac.com (Colin is the best overall experience I've had as a collector)
Sam Sarowitz - posteritati.com
Dale Dilts - ebay: ddilts399
Bruce Hershenson - emovieposter.com
Graeme Ellis - ebay: picturetrader
Phil Edwards - cinemarts.com
John Goss - ebay: kamiosaki
Tony Calvert - ebay: d-d

I have nothing but good things to say about Cinemasterpieces , Posteritati and Emovieposter.com. Ha.com has been very good to me as well (Even if I lost my damn Plan 9 From Outer Space 1 sheet at over 5,000$ in their last major auction and "Peggy" got a real attitude with me when contacting me about my payment).

Dominique Besson and Benito Medela where nothing but great when dealing with me.

I also have had some solid experiences with Mainlymovies on Ebay as well.
