Hey just a heads up, I just tried the search links and ebay is giving back a message saying:

"Unfortunately, we only have room for around 100 characters, so we had to shorten your search."

Must be a recent change as it wasnt doing this the other day.

I just tested all of them and they are still working.
It may be luck-of-the-draw on which Ebay server responds to the search request.

Yep, looks like they're forcing the 100 characters now.

I've adjusted the links, but I had to leave out some of the titles (Chaos Effect, Deathmate, HardCorps, Visitor).

Now I'm getting 0 search results for this seacrh, I broke it into two sections and use it that way for now.
Hmmm..
