I won a set of figures on the recent vectis auction and am due to pick them up next week. I was taking another look at the auction pic post-auction and noticed the Vader card looks like it might be a re-seal, . I'm hoping it isn't but would appreciate the board's thoughts before picking it up.
Why do I only seem to really pay attention to the pics after I've bought the bleeding things
My opinion is the Vader looks pretty good, left most Ackbar is squashed and cracked, maybe shattered at the top (the yellow bubble would make that likely) and squashed at bottom right of bubble. Right Ackbar looks detached at bottom to about half way but still sealed top half.
The bubble with the Chirpa is actually from the Bib Fortuna, see the yellow strip at the bottom of that bubble matches up with the missing yellow litho at the top of the figure backing area behind Bib. That may actually reseal quite nicely.
The bubble currently with the Bib is probably for the Chirpa but looks shagged.
Looking at that picture, I'm sorry but I think you have about £100 worth of figures there. I personally wouldn't pay any more for that as a bulk lot.
I would really push hard about getting your money back on the basis they are undisclosed as reseals. I would also look up several other lots that are marked as reseals as that should only strengthen your case for them being incorrectly described.
WANTED: The following speederbikes. I would like them boxed but open and complete. I need:
Meccano stickered bike Pbp stickered bilogo Danish stickered bilogo Special offer uk bilogo
Thanks for the input everyone it's really appreciated. Edd/spoons, that was my reckoning when I put my bid in. The amount I bid was based on the Vader and the left-most Ackbar being factory sealed, I don't think the description is as helpful as it is on other lots. I'll send them an email, see where I get and let you know how I get on.
