Recived this, been looking forward to it arrvie for few days, :-



It was sold in mint condition but was posted in this :-



absolutly gutted as it looked amazing in the photo now it has a cracked bubble (Managed to get big dints out) and massive crease in card Sad posibly only suitable for loose now Sad

I entered a claim but wasnt worth sending item back so i have left them feedback and recived 2 more emails from unhappy buyers that are going through the same thing. One paid ofer £150 for the moc and it was that badly damaged it fell off the card..........

Mad It survives 25 years only to have some tossbag send it in an envelope. Sorry to see it Lee Sad It's a bit late now but I always ask sellers to confirm how they intend on sending me items, & I happily pay a little extra for a box. This was after I got an offerless 20 back sent the same way Evil or Very Mad

Lee,

that does suck arse mate, did the other buyers leave them neg as well?

Maybe sell it on rather than open for a loose figure? im sure there will be peeps who want one that is not quite mint

Have you got a picture of the original auction as well ? So we can see the condition before it was posted and what shipping like that can do to a carded figure?

Sorry about this once again Sad

If thats the same one Gandalf got, you can see all the creases in the photo, I hate to say. Even the corner wear shows in that shot.

The top right corner seems totally flat though. In Gandalfs picture: not so much.

Kinda hard to tell from the way they took the original photo, laying flat, compared to the way Gandalf's photo is, standing up. Still sucks either way.

That photo i took was after i spent an hour getting it straightened out.

As for the RS and SWG forums can somone pls post on them and advise the 2 people who are sending back the items to check the conditions of return. I was offered a 30% refund upon return so in money terms id pay £5/6 postage back (Must be recorded) to get back £7 which is an absolute con and a joke tbh
