    Well, I recieved the following today in the mail:


    [EBAY]200090625571[/EBAY]

    Looks like the seller and I don't agree on "Perfect". EVERY Sticker on all 3 have many scratches. The plastic has many scratches. There is Yellowing on the wheels. The only thing perfect, was the stickers that were not applied yet. Guess there is not much I can do. :(

    Yeah, I always skim through all the feedback to read the negatives, no matter if he has 1 in a 1000 or not. I just like to make extra sure. I've been screwed before and once by a seller with tons of pos. feedback and 0 negs. Grrr! Maybe send pics back to him and get a partial refund?

    IMO
    truthfully with the not prerfect condition mentioned
    that is still a good price
    laster and braver can run $50-100 + shippping each
    and blacker $150

    if sending back recomend going through paypal

    Yeah I'm not seeing that much damage. Yeah a little sticker wear and scuffing but pretty minor.

    I have to agree with many of the other comments. For toys that are nearly 20yrs old, they are in very good shape. If you really want to return it, that is completely your call. IMO, I think you received a really good deal on a difficult piece of TF History.

    I can see the scuffs on the shield part, but other than that, they seem very minor.

    I think you should keep it. It looks like you could buff out the scuffs in the plastic.

    Laster and Braver are the cheaper korean KOs. For that alone you should get your money back, definitely not worth the $225.

    Sorry there is no difference between them, and if he looked he would of seen these were the korean sets. You got what you paid for man alot of the roadcesars come with worse wear on the stickers.

    The scuffs on the chest shield look more like a manufacturing problem than the result of abuse by an owner or collector. Having had most of them at one point or another,
    i've found that stickers on Victory toys are usually pretty delicate. I suspect the indentations on Blackers stickers could even be from the factory.

    The mark of Raster's wheel arch definitely brings the toy down a little.

    You'd be hard pressed to find a perfect Roadcaesar for $225. However i do think you have the seller on a technicality, - he said it's perfect, and it's not quite perfect, regardless of if you got $225 of toys or not.
