    So I won a TF movie premium optimus prime's blade form TFCtoy on ebay and I got my parcel in the mail when I opened it at home to my surprise I got a TF Animated Blackarachnia and a Ratchet! What the cr** I thought! But after 10 minutes of my 9 year old son and I checking it out, there not bad figs.


    Now I got to send these back to get my blade paid 20 bucks for it. (includes shipping.)

    I'd hate to be the guy who ordered TF Animated Blackarachnia & Ratchet and just received an Optimus Prime blade...

    I'd keep those over the blade. I'll give you $40+shipping for the pair and you can go get the whole Premium Prime :D 

    Nah, being honest is the right thing to do. Enjoy the crack while you have it. You'll only want more later.

    All the stuff I've ordered has been the stuff I've ordered (except one broken part that was immediately replaced)... But I have one coming in tomorrow that's given me nothing but hell, so I'm expecting the worst. I have one coming in a week and a half from now that I'm not as concerned about, but it hasn't caused any problems yet.

    I forget who the seller was, but a member had received an "extra" set of Battle Begins Prime and Megz. He ended up selling the Prime, and there was this whole fiasco over the situation. >.> Everything was eventually resolved in the end. ^^;

    I contacted the seller, he wrote back, appologiesed, and told me that he would send my item NOW! He also asked if I could send these to the guy it was supposed to go to in the UK and he would pay me the cost in shipping. So I told him the price, and am going to wait till the deposit in my Paypal. if not then I might keep.

    i wouldn't keep them expecially if they belong to a board member.

    remember to if you keep them he can file a claim against you cause you told him.
    if you want them make a deal with him.I am sure will give you a good price instead of a shipping headache

    Oh yeah, that was fun times. I'm STILL dealing with the fallout from some of that, and I wasn't anywhere near that deal.

    Well, if the seller is actually paying for the shipping costs, it's not too terrible.

    When I bought my G1 Boxed Tripticon, the seller mistakenly sent me a loose Bumblebee instead. Fortunatly he realised his mistake before it reached me and asked me to forward the bumblebee on to the real winner (and my Tripticon arrived a couple of days later :) ).

    I bought a Flywheels on the boards and got Battletrap instead. Or was it the other way around? This is why I label my baggies, I know I'll make the same mistake if I'm not careful. :lol
