He said he drove to meet the admin guy, and talked about European prices. Maybe the admin guy is also Scandinavian.

After some negotiations back and forth I got my collection back, minus the vehicles and the bag.

Thank you all for being the "proof of support" that my childhood collection was worth much more.
Especially since I did get inspired to collect again, this whole shinanigan was counterproductive and illogical.

Glad you got some of it back, why not the weapons and accessories.

Congratulations, at least a bit of good news.
Now you can start looking to replace the bits and pieces that you now have missing.
Good luck.

Have to say I am utterly confused by this thread :lol:

Not sure what to beleive about any of it. But if it's true that the OP has got the collecting bug then welcome aboard!
