    guy just emailed me saying that he put the wrong price down after I emailed him asking if it was the original. I guess he figured out how hard this fig is to come by. I smell some bad feedback brewing.

    you bought it and then he changes his mind? Roast him man. His fault for not doing the checking he needed to do beforehand. Thats just not cool.

    I realize this fig costs somewhat more, and I'm willing to pay alittle more but not $210-this is the price he wants now after I asked him the 'is this original' question.

    posted by me:

    this is bad buisness bro. what do you suggest we do about it, cause I'm completely in the right here and won it fair and square according to ebay. I'm open to options.

    posted by him:

    Yes, you're are 100% right, could I give you a discount on another item? But like I said, you're in the right, it was a mistake on my part. I won't cause a problem, but as a fellow Ebayer to another, I'd prefer to have at least $210. If you want to take the item at a steal, I won't cause a problem, because it was my fault.
    thanks again
    Chris


    well, i just paid the 120 it was listed for. i'm sorry, but I dont play that "oops, i screwed up on the price" shit as far ebay goes. if your selling something-you gotta be on top of that stuff-and he listed it red slag-he shouldve adjusted the price accordingly. well see what kinda condition its in once i receive it. I honored my end of the deal and my obligation.

    Yeah, with this posted on the auction:
    He should definately honor his original price. if you're 100% against buyer error, you gotta be the same about your own mistakes too.

    He best honor it and send it in good conditon also.

    He has this posted on the auction...
    >>>BUYER NOTE: As a Ebay seller I am extremely displeased when a buyer blames me for not reading a description accurately. Buyer's please look at the item, read the description and if there are any doubts please contact me. I will not stand for anymore negative feedback because of Buyer Error. I don't mean to sound disrespectful, but please read descriptions well before you bid.<<<

    I'd say it works both ways...do your pricing homework before you submit the post and check for typos to incase that is what this was, it could have been a transposition. Still it is a lesson to proof your sale items.

    Hope it all turns out well.

    seems a couple of us noticed that at the same time

    Ebay:
    This is the chance you take by selling on ebay (or forums/whatever). He needs to give it to you at that price, and I say if he doesn't, we all contact him and ebay about it...I've gotten some great stuff by sellers not knowing fully what they had, and I'm sure I've sold some stuff not knowing exactly the worth, but hey, that's the name of the game....good score!

    TBH, I'm surprised anyone would have paid $120 for this in the first place. I know that exclusives are expensive rarities, but this is Slag with a red head and fists! It's sales like this that make me feel sorry for TF fans...

    But about the auction, I agree that the seller should honour the deal, but try not to be rude. I'm sure he's sore enough as it is and doesn't need extra incentive to neg you. After he leaves his feedback, you can always try selling it back to him at a higher price. :D

    Even worse than risking negative feedback, this seller is in violation of eBay's Seller Non Performance Policy.

    http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/...rformance.html

    If a seller has refused to complete a sale, and payment has not been sent or payment has been refunded, report the seller. Make sure to include a copy of the email documenting the seller's refusal to complete the sale with the full message text and complete email headers when making your report.

    why do you feel sorry for me, am I getting called out as someone who has no idea what he's doing? red faced slags in this condition are quite hard to come by IMO. so its not like the guy pulled one over on me. but i guess anyone who doesnt collect toys would frown upon spending $120 on this.

    and you forgot white legs, a different color missile launcher too.

    red face slag is awsome. Hope you can get him and the seller isn't a total knob.

    I hope you get it, its not that rare though, so if he doesn't come thru you should be able to find another one(I got 3 of them). However, that is one of the better ones I have seen, and it has the damn elusive red launcher.

    He needs to honour the price and I hope he does, this happened to me when i won a leader class prime, megatron and voyager ironhide for ~£40 before xmas, the seller kept sending me a refund and then would not answer me simply because he didnt get what he wanted.
