Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Star Trek

I enjoyed Into Darkness. I liked the scenes on earth were things didn't look much different from the way they are now. I kept thinking how is star wars going to look done in this style or re-imagined this way. It's not as good as Warth of Kahn, Undiscovered country, first contact or Voyage home but it stands up well.

ST2 - WOK was easily one of my favorite movies from my childhood.  That cat & mouse fight in the nebula at the end was pure genius.  I was never much a fan of the others in the original series, but I'll always have a soft spot for that one.

I will try to avoid some things, but early photos & casting are fair game for me.  I don't think I can make it 18 months without some kind of general awareness of the movie.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

Check out THIS TMZ POSTING.  It shows a gallery of over 40 images from the set of the Episode VII shoot in Abu Dhabi.

Guess we're heading back to everyone's favorite desert planet?  I hope JJ edits out all the white trucks and sunglasses or this movie's going to be terrible.

I just watched Into Darkness this weekend and thought it was pretty good for an action flick.  The special effects, more focus on fighting, and the character likenesses made the plot holes a lot more tolerable for me. 

If the box had come with the tape seals intact, I would have given the seller positive feedback and moved on. If the seals had been cut and the bag inside was a standard issue unopened Lego parts bag and all of the parts were in the bag, I would have still given the seller a positive feedback and moved on. Because it would be plausible that the seller opened the box to make sure everything was inside.

Would you really?  You decided a 25% refund was called for because of the tape seals?  I collect a lot of stuff - some carded and some loose.  If I wanted this item sealed and it was opened, I'd have asked for a huge discount or sent it back.  I couldn't display it the way I intended, so I would be very dissatisfied.  The seller was totally wrong here from that angle. BUT, if I planned to open it anyway, I would have just let something like this slide.  I might even warn the guy to use better descriptions, but I wouldn't have sought out a discount or taken it any further. 

I have actually been fairly lucky with Ebay throughout my collecting career, but I hear stories like this all the time.  Big companies like Target can weather a dissatisfied customer here or there.  Maybe I'm just over sensitive to smaller sellers since Ebay already dicks them over for 10% of final value and shipping fees on top of paypal fees.  Glad you at least got the item you wanted.

Pete had the opportunity to return the item for a full refund, right?  How is that not making amends for the mistake?  I'm just pointing out the difference between a lawful decision and an ethical decision.  If you got what you wanted for an acceptable price, then maybe let it go.  Like I said originally, to each their own.

Exactly what I was talking about.  People have this mentality that they're owed something anytime someone makes a mistake.  Like I said, if your intent was to keep it sealed, then I'm right there with you.  But you bought it to open.  You could have returned it for a full refund if you wanted it sealed, but you were seeking money back despite getting the item for less than the current sealed price.  I don't sell on Ebay because of stuff like this.  Heaven forbid you forget to point out a flaw or describe something incorrectly because the buyer will come after you for any and all mistakes even if they got exactly what they wanted. Yes, you're clearly within your rights to complain, but that doesn't mean its the right thing to do.

The guy I was dealing with sent me an item that was opened and resealed, and was listed as unopened.  I contacted him when I opened the claim, which gave me the option to ask that I keep the item but ask for a partial refund.  That's what I did, and he was more than happy to kick back my shipping.  I think he'd have asked for more, but the shipping satisfied me.

In your case it sounds even a little more shady than mine (I think my guy it was an honest mistake), and you deserve some money back, especially since yours was opened AND is missing a part.  Mine was complete, and I was going to open it anyway, so I didn't want to be a jag about it was all.  I wanted something off though because we'd been in a Best Offer negotiation over it and my first offer was declined...  Knowing what I know now, I would've wanted it for the lower price though.

He may not like it, or even respond to you, but either way Ebay's probably going to side with you on it.  Take some pics of it for evidence.

eBay did side with me - sorry if my post wasn't clear on that point - the only problem was that all they were willing to do was send me a shipping label to send it back to the seller for a full refund.

I even selected the option to chose to keep item/partial refund but they (eBay) ignored it.

If the seller coped to the fact that it was already opened and built and all they did was disassemble it and sell it and were willing to kick back some $$$ - like 25% off or something, I would have been happy with that AND given the seller good feedback.

I did get a eBay customer support survey to fill out - not that I think it will help much - but I plan on giving eBay a less than favorable response on that this weekend.

To each their own, but this feels like a lot of fuss for no reason...or worse, a case of entitlement.  This is another reason why I avoid Ebay selling like the plague these days.  The seller was absolutely wrong in his description of the item and if your intent was to keep it sealed then I would back your actions 100%.  However, your intent was to open the item anyway.  You had added hassle in getting the hair piece, but got it for free and you clearly didn't feel it was worth getting the full refund to go buy from someone else. The desire to get an additional discount based on someone's mistaken description when you essentially got what you wanted doesn't sit well with me.

I wonder with Disney's purchase if we can finally get the Tonnika Sisters.  I mean, they can't complain that they are "Star Whores"... they made a movie called "Pretty Woman" under one of their studios.

Yeah, but the movie wasn't called Pretty Whore.   ;)

Anyone know how these match up with TBS 6" figures?  Price is way too steep for me.

I've been hitting one Target with zero Cap figures going on about three weeks now.  Unreal.

Anyone seeing 6" Black Widow on the pegs?  Can't seem to find her anywhere outside of Ebay.
