how "non-mint" are the "non-mint" figures from yestertoys? i thought about ordering some to fill holes, but i was wondering if non mint meant that they were crushed or if they just had minor dings? if anyone has ordered from them, please let me know.

NON-Mint at yestertoys is: It will have dings.But the figure is still good.Some time they put "Opener" in the detail if it's that bad.I hope this helped.

There's an old thread about this. But anyway, their non-mint figures are nearly perfect, just maybe a small crease in the card or a ding in the bubble. Great for openers. :)

I ordered several non-mint items from them and they were nearly perfect, with just a few minor blemishes. Some were Tri-Logo, though. So if you open your toys, or a few minor imperfections won't bother you, go for it.

I have ordered non-mint, case packed and vehicles from Yestertoys.

I have usually had no issue with the packaging but I have occasionally had yestertoys package alot of items into one box and got a few crushed items upon opening.

I open my figures from there since I am army building for three dioramas....(Rebel & Imperial Hangar scenes and Geonosis Battle)..

yeah all of the Non-Mints are great looking, unlike the fan club were they could be severly crushed

Got my order today...one week later...2 saga x wings, three POTJ imperial officers and a POTJ Eeth Koth....all non mint...

The X wings and the imp officers are in great shape but Eeth Koth took a hit during transit.....but I will be opening them all....after my room is built for my SW dioramas...

Anybody know about what kind of methods of payments you can use at yestertoys? I couldn't find anything on it. Do they accept money orders?

I've ordered from yestertoys on several occasions. The Ep. 1 Gungan ammo carts were a little more dinged and dented than I would have linked but for the price I paid, I really can't complain.

I just put in an order on monday for some tie bombers and saga x-wings. With the price they are at, it is just too good to pass up. Everything I ordered was "non-mint" so we will see what that means. However, I have ordered non-mint stuff from them before and I have never had a complaint.

Darth Ravenger, I don't know what kind of other payments they take. Usually I have just used a debit or credit card. But if you go through in order and get up to the payment part, it will tell you what kind of options you have. Usually there will be several options under payment methods.

Yestertoys does take money orders. That's how I've done my transactions with them. You will have to contact them to get shipping costs and the address.

I'm a little bit disappointed with yestertoys right now. On Nov. 11th I ordered 3 items from them -- all of which were listed in stock. After not hearing anything for 3 weeks I emailed them for a status. I received a reply today stating that 2 of the items shipped but that they were out of the third. Sorry...

And that was it! I kind of expected an email before they shipped the other two items letting me know that my third item was out of stock giving me the choices of:

1) Canceling my order
2) Substituting for something else
3) A discount or credit for my next purchase

Something other than just a sorry. Anyone else have this problem?

It's unusual that someone didn't contact you sooner. I haven't experienced any problems like that.

I hope they're going to refund you. I dislike store credits.

There's one or two companies I've ordered from, because I didn't confirm my final order, they sold out of an item I really wanted.

Is this an item you can find from another vendor, reasonably priced?

I'll check my credit card statement when it comes to see if I was charged for the missing item. If the price isn't adjusted I'll let them know.

The item wasn't a big deal -- It was a Glob Jabba with slime. Not a high ticket item, but I was trying to avoid having to pay for shipping just for him. That's why I ordered two other items with it.
