Hello every one,
I started this thread because I am curious to see what the worst example is of some one on eBay (or maybe even amazon or some thing else) where the seller has a description of the item like this:
"Mego Batman, mint, complete, all original, buyer pays shipping etc". You buy the item thinking "yes, batman, my favorite!". Only to receive a Batman this is missing his gloves and the rest is clearly repro or home made parts.
I bring this up because my sister bought me a Lt Uhura for christmas. The item description said "mint and original" but when I unwrapped it I noticed some thing pretty much immediately. The pants on Uhura were not original, they were black, not brown, and worst yet, they were home made, and pretty poorly at that (they don't fit and the elastic is all coming off). So now I am stuck with a Uhura with out her original pants (any one has a spare pair PM me so we can cut a deal).
So has any one else had this happen to them? Maybe you bought a carded mego and recieved it to see that it was resealed with duct tape?
Or maybe you just didnt see the Font Size 1 writing at the bottom of the auction that said "reproduction".
