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.
Nah, not really.
While I appreciate your perspective given your situation, only having one side able to honestly comment on the situation is hardly the best. I've dealt with dickish buyers enough that I'd love to neg them and they would have deserved it. But there's no option for an irresponsible buyer. Three weeks to pay then leave comments to the extent that shipping was slow? Seriously?
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.
Sellers can't leave negative or neutral feedbacks anymore, so no need to worry about retaliation. The worst the seller could do is leave a positive feedback with a negative written comment, but that is something eBay will remove.
This post actually made me realize that there's no figure line based on the upcoming X-Men movie. That's actually something of a big deal.
Yeah, people have been snagging the SSD everywhere it's sold. It's always been that way with LEGO though. Anytime there are rumors of a set's retirement, people go crazy (see the Jabba's Palace thing last year when stores sold out of the set because of the mosque controversy). Some people have been saving up for the SSD since it came out, and want one before it's gone, while scalpers see the dollar signs.
As far as Obi-Wan, I think there's a couple angles. One is ageing Ewan McGregor via make up or CGI. A combo of the two would probably get close to Alec Guinness. I like the holocron idea, but another option would be just having him 'de-age.' Lucas opened the door on this by having Hayden Christensen appear in ROTJ. The only explanation for this is the Jedi somehow have the power to 'regress' in the Force, or appear as they want to. This would be ok with me.
Word is that the SSD was quietly retired, so whatever is left out there is it.
How did you get the TRU set? I thought that was just for kids?
Nice haul there Pete
