Ebay Gripes

Post by 2stripes »

I have many... here are 10 off the top off my head

1- That seller... "Best Repros I've seen"
2 - The phrase "AFA Ready"
2- The phrase "Minty"... particularly when used to describe a dirty figure with obvious paint loss
3- "Star War" ...come on, its nearly half a century old and you still get the name wrong?
4- How I still manage to return fake items when my search contains -reproduction -repro -custom -replica
5- Leia Poncho is NOT a last 17 figure
6- The old fishing line ... "I bought this in the 90's but a friend of mine said he thinks the pop up lightsaber may be fake.. I'll let you decide though.."
7- How the "Vintage Collection" always knackers your vintage star wars searches.
8- Figures that are "100% original" ... with no accessories.
9 - The phrase "AFA Ready"
10 - Imperial Dignitary's cocaine habit... causing his nose to fall off on any reasonably priced example.

I have to agree with you....Especially with the vintage collection having to sort by date is a pain
Another of mine is complete original but has wrong accessories some times not even from star wars :roll:

One I hate is when people message you saying there is a mistake in the listing when there isn't or saying a vintage item isn't vintage had it with a buyer once for a slave 1 han solo in carbonite.

The vintage collection clogging up the search results is my biggest gripe, there is more of the vintage collection MOC than actual vintage MOC.
