So my latest pickup has a bit of a long story to it but to keep it short I bought the black series stormtrooper helmet from GameStop on may 4th. They had sent me a used one instead of new so I called them up and they told me to return it. When it got back to their warehouse they refunded me and told me that they didn’t have any more so they couldn’t do anything. I called corporate up and they told me that they found one and would send it out to me but they wanted me to pay the full price instead of the sale price I had paid. I showed them the price I had paid so I got it for the sale price. So here it finally is.

Cheeky twats sending a used one :x ....you paid for a brand new one so you want a brand new one...yeh its their sale items but thats no excuse :roll:

And for them to try and charge you full price and not the sale price you originally bought it for well thats just appauling

Exactly. It was insulting after what they had pulled. If they had just sent it out to me after they got the used one back or after they refunded me that they would look for a replacement I would have been fine. At least they didn’t send me back the used one and try to get me to pay full price.

It's good to get the list ticked off, just been on ebay myself and bought a skirt and weapon for Klaatu. Got a cheeky bid in for a Leia boushh rifle to finish off my wants :wink:
