I agree, too. I'd just get the refund based on the seller's 30day stated deal. I do think he should have laid it out in the photo, as he did with the JG items with maps and such. I think he gave the impression it was "intact" by taking the photo in the protective sleeve. I mean, if it's already cut up, written on, etc, what's the point in protecting it? :?

Well he did need a way to keep it all the pieces together. :)  Looking at the auction, the use of the phrase 'GREAT CONDITION!' in the title was perhaps a bit optimistic and would definitely lend credence to the item being complete.


Hello Mrs. Cleaver, Theodore.

Gee, Mrs. Cleaver ... That certainly is a lovely dress.

This is one of the reasons I LOVE this forum.
Great advice and well stated.

As I said, I was leaning to taking the full refund, but wanted to know what the other members thought the price/value might be for this set before I made the final choice.

I do feel that $65 is too much for this set with its condition problems.
And I do not think $50 is right either...
And for $50 I can buy TEN Raffle Tickets at the Convention... :lol:

My thanks to all and if this set does interest any of you, I am sure the seller will relist it soon after it is returned.

Wonder if I should send the pictures and scans that I made, so seller can post them to the new auction? 8)
Maybe even the complete description I wrote on the first page too?

Thanks! I'd be looking a bit stupid if you didn't since I was the bidder who paid $66.05 for the cut-up example noted on the previous page; which I thought was a good price, fwiw. ;)

The fact that the seller in your case stated "GREAT CONDITION!" left the decision up to you, anyhow, since that clearly was not the case regardless of the price being fair or otherwise. And as you're unhappy, it sounds like you've made the right decision. :)
Pity you ca'n't get your time back, too, but has been an interesting discussion, thanks.

Yes, written on, but otherwise complete with the "instruction pamphlet" which is often missing.

To return an item because it does not meet the value consensus of others is a poor choice in of itself.

However, the seller did say "great condition" and seems amenable to a refund.

Take the full refund.

FWIW: I only asked for your opinions as I truly do value them.
In the end I will always make my own choices based on what I want to do, not based on outside influences.
HOWEVER, I did consider your thoughts in this thread to help me make my final choice in this situation, at least in part.

As I stated previously; I was torn between three options:
Keep the set as is and stop my bit.. ching...
Accept a partial refund of $15 (making the purchase price $49.99 instead of $64.99).
Accept a full refund to include Shipping both directions and have nothing left but wasted time after it all ended.

NOTE: The Seller was responsive and very patient as I tried to decide what to do and that certainly helped me to make my final choice.
I wanted to point that out as a true possitive aspect of the situation.
Anyway, the deal has been resolved to my satisfaction and I will leave good feedback for the seller.
However, I will NOT do the DSR thingies at all because to be honest with them the seller would certainly take a big hit in at least 2 of the categories (Shipping Method and the Description).

My first view of the package was while it was still inside the mailbox folded almost in half...

Finally, my thanks to all of you who responded to this thread and offered your thoughts.
