"I used to think it was a terrible thing that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'what if life were fair, and all of the terrible things that happen to us came because we really deserved them?' Now I take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe." — Marcus Cole, Babylon 5 — A Late Delivery from Avalon
I think hes selling them because the purchase turned into a huge fight with the seller which soured the buy.
The seller described them as the finest example that would ever be made available. Obviously this is the sort of hyperbole you expect from some sellers. Except the set didnt include Menasors head which wasn't made obvious to begin within and more importantly the seller did have a better set, one that included the head which he also planned to sell.
For me the buyer should have felt ripped off. He was effectively used to set the price for the really good set.
When you get eBay auctions with that kind of exposure people bid for laughs. It's a kind of acknowledgement of the comedy value of the listing I guess. Must be a pain to unpick afterwards though. Be better to pull the listing.
Closed my ebay account last week after a particularly nasty experience with ebay customer disservice.
Bought this item from that seller. It arrived missing numerous pieces including the cockpit to the small jet, which rendered the set useless. Seller offered a fraction of the cost as a refund. When I refused they asked for it to be sent back knowing that the cost of sending something back to China via courier was well more than the item was worth, and kept delaying and delaying replying to messages until the time limit expired. Returned said item with proof of postage. Seller denied receiving it, ebay sided with the seller.
