How DOES Ebay work?

Ok...I am really confused now.  How is anyone supposed to find anything on Ebay when their search engines dont work?

Recently I spent all day trying to find that 2011 Hasbro Comic Con Comic.  I tried all sorts of various titles.  Finally I emailed a friend of mine and he sent me an auction number.  And go figure...the auction seller doesnt ship outside the USA.  Sorry man...if you dont ship outside the USA then I will put you on my blocked bidders list.  I find it hypocritical that people outside of Canada will buy from me, but wont ship internationally.

So anyway, I copied and pasted the title of that exact auction into the Ebay browser and not a single auction came up.  Not even the one I copied the title from.

Now how weird is that?

Mini Magnemo Red Falcon

Currently on Homeworlds Cover page is a picture showing 3 Mini Red Falcons in various positions.  These figures are magnemo's and stand about 4" tall.  They are slightly bigger than your basic Micronaut.  They are very endearing and quickly grow on you.  They are arguably better toys than the 6" magno figures.  They definitely have a higher collectability value.

I had this one but it was incomplete so I traded it to a friend of mine who had more of the parts it was missing.  I have since replaced it with a conventional colored version.
