PostSubject: toy_trader_uk on ebay sold me a repro blaster instead of original   Thu Nov 14, 2013 8:05 am

Sorry for my poor english, my native lenguage is french.

I think there is nothing worst for a collector than to receive a repro instead of an original, especialy when it comes from a profetionnal of toys.

I bought a china rebel soldier on ebay from toy_trader_uk in a direct trade. It was said "it comes with "ORIGINAL" blaster! "great for serious collector"!!! Smile funny

I was really pissed off this morning when I received it to see that the blaster was a repro. Also I wrote very kindly to him to tell him I was surprised, but I was even more surprised when he complitly denied it and said I must be wrong!!
Then I insisted and he said I should be happy because he sold me a nice figure! I can't beleive it.

So I just want you to be aware of that because I know you hate repro as much as me.

here is our little conversation:
"Hi
I received the figure today, thank you. But you gave me a repro blaster, and It was said It is an original. What do you propose?"

"Hi
I don't deal in repro I never have and I never will , so I think you are mistaken

"Is this really your answer to this? i don't think this is really professionnel.
I Am a serious star Wars collector, and i recognised it was a repro first thing when i saw It. Then i did the water test, That confirmed my thought, then i went to impérial gunnary website to identify the repro and again i had confirmation.
i Am absolutly positive It is a repro. I admit you CAN Make a mistake, but if you deny It and don't do anithing to repair this, i would have to Make a note in conséquence. Sorry about That but i Am very surprised by your answer.

"yes it is, as I don't deal in repro at all , Look at my shop there are no repros of anything listed there, it may be possible that i have made an error it looked fine to me and i can't water test every weapon I get.
You got the a nice condition china scuplt figure with a 3.00 off best offer discount and you could buy another weapon for less than that, so i think even if somehow it is repro you have not done badly
if you don't want the item then please send it back to me
- toy_trader_uk":emperor: 

"In fact this is what i was thinking, i got a repro wapon because i asked a lower price, but then you should have told It before.
I won't waste my Time sending It back.
I propose you sent me a réal wapon or refond 3 euros witch is the price of an original blaster.
- routchane"

"Plus you are suppose to be a professional toy trader, you say you sell an original blaster, It has to be original. I recognised It very easily, if you don't, then you should do the water test or change your job or not saying you are selling original wapon
- routchane" indy 

"well you think wrong,
if you want to think liek that then maybe I could think you thought the shipping was to high ( as shipping is expensive) and this is a way to get more money off?
you have misunderstood me, I don't KNOWINGLY OWN OR SELL any repro items if this is a repro then that is the way it was sold to me and I have missed it
you have already had 3.00 off I'm not refunding any more without a return, it can't bother you that much if its 'a waste of your time' to return it

Sounds like the seller came to his senses a little. I still think £1.50 refund is a bit of an insult
but at least your point has been made to him and by others by the sounds of it which is good.

It can be frustrating with ebay sellers that are clearly in the wrong when you recieve repro/damaged
etc items and they just won't be reasonable and sensible in sorting out these issues. Of course there
are good ebay sellers out there also so let's not forget them also.

This seller has got a lot of negs and neutral FB so one to watch for any future potential buys from him for sure.

If you decide you want to file a paypal dispute, let us know. Paypal will accept the Imperial Gunnery as an expert opinion. I would happily write something up for you.
