Too good to be true...

Postby phreatobite » Mon Sep 18, 2017 2:25 pm

I just bought a job lot of loose vintage with some tasty pieces and I obviously won't post details yet because I'm sure it's too good to be true. The seller will probably cancel but IF it happens it'll be my best pick-up since I won that complete AT-AT for a tenner.

Apologies for my cryptic excited shit-post but I hope to post pics and info soon.

I know which one you're on about as I seen it earlier but never bothered getting involved as I already have most the figures.

Well done on getting them they're a good price, i'm sure it will all turn out fine for you 8)

I had the same problem ½ year ago when I won on ebay a great lot for a very good price. He told me the wife had sold it in a vintage shop and he gave me a refund. I gave him negative feedback on ebay for that. So if you bought it on ebay then give him negative feedback :wink:

Never ever post on a forum about a find before you have it in hand... you never know who is lurking..

Precisely. Tell absolutely nobody until you take possession.
