Spot the legs?

Post links to your own or other people's Ebay auctions. It is fine to discuss live auctions, but DO NOT post links to closed auctions for at least 7 days after the listing ends. See sales forum rules for details.

Those type of listings really annoy me, the seller can’t even be bothered to spread the stuff out and take a proper photo.

So lazy!

Terrible images the yak could be a repro and this is what the guy could be hoping for a few chances bidding it way over value. Either way real or not pure lazy.

A crazy, lazy listing of the kind which really annoys me. It takes no real effort to lay the figures out and photograph the lot, so each one can be seen. Instead, we get a 'pot luck' pile of figures, the exact content and condition of which could be anything! Yes there's a Yak (but whether real or repro, who can say), plus a few others that may or may not be worth having like a Luke Farmboy, but without seeing the condition of the figures (or even if the Yak is real), the seller simply guarantees the listing won't sell for as much as it otherwise would, which considering it's for charity, is nothing short of criminal!

This is deliberate. You can only con a con artist.

You think you are tricking them by getting a cheap yak but in reality the figure is repro or has no head!

Yeah I thought it may be headless :D especially as their other auctions are meticulously laid out!

Pulling this kind of stunt would put me off bidding on any of their auctions. It’s pathetic, charity or not.

If anyone is interested, ask for better pictures, it’s not as if all and sundry don’t know about this lot by now... :wink:

“ Hi there,

The bundle was donated to us and sent to our warehouse, so I am not able to send more photos, sorry.
