    You could try contacting TFSource to see if they still have any replacement parts. What are they claiming broke?

    I'm sorry but if they broke it you can't be held responsible. As long as you have emails with them stating that they broke the figure you don't have to do anything BUT in good faith you can try to get parts but that would be up to you

    Dude, it's your call, but I'd say it's not your problem as long as you sold it in good faith and without knowing of any obvious defects. This toy has a number of fragility issues that are on the manufacturer, not you.

    I say let them contact XTB themselves (they are most definitely still around).

    This is part of the risk associated with buying second-hand stuff, and part of the reason why people may wish to pay a premium for a retailer purchase where the retailer can help with any issues.

    Doesn't hurt to try. If you were able to find this thread, you might have noticed several threads about upcoming products from XTB so they definitely still exist. You might want to try some of the more reputable retailers here too. They may have the parts you need available.

    Tell them to get a life. You don't buy a used Apollyon, break it then want a refund from the seller. They're just trying to take advantage of your good nature.
    Tell them to buy a tube of superglue.

    Thanks guys.
    I sent the figure in perfect condition and i never transformed it. They are saying that their 11 yr old son is the one who bought it and when he was transforming it things broke off and whatnot.
    So i told them that i will not accept a return because it was in his hands while it broke and besides the figure is for 16+ yrs old. They got angry and started to bash me. I remained calm and told them i dont appreciate their rude behavior and because i fell bad for their kid i offered them a partial refund or contact the toy company on thier behalf. They finally calmed down and didnt say anything about the refund but said they did some research and found out that there are issues with the toy... So you do this AFTER you buy it? Seems odd. They were worried that they don't have the original receipt and that the company won't help them. So i again said id help them and to provide pictures. I have yet to receive anything from them that shows the broken toy.
    I know that i dont have to do any of this for them but I felt bad for thier kid i suppose.
    Anyways thanks for the info. I did email the company and they are requesting pictures. So its in the hands of the buyer now. I hope this is enough for ebay to close the return request. Im trying to be a good and honest seller.

    Ohhhh you sold it on ebay?
    Different story altogether.
    You need to demonstrate to ebay that it arrived fine and is an adult collectible broken by a child. Don't return any money. You're not in the wrong. You made an honest sale and you shouldn't have to lose money because people are idiots.

    It's not your fault they are stupid shmucks

    What 11 year old has 150 bucks to blow on a toy... he can't even know who Megatron is lol

    More likely someone who didn't watch some transformation videos first or is trying to scam out some replacement parts :D

    You damn kids!! *shakes cane angrily* When I was your age, Transformers had devolved into Pretenders, Micromasters and... the most painful of all... Actionmasters. I was so glad to have Playmates making Star Trek:TNG ships and stuff... ha.

    If you watch the news, you already know the answer to that question lol
