    buying from Yestertoys? Think twice!

    so I received a carded "new" vintage figure from yestertoys the other day. to my surprise the figure was shipped in a flimsy thinwall cardboard box that can't withstand any light hits not to mention strong blows to it.
    what you see in the pics below is the condition the box arrived in. the box's height is barely higher than the bubble itself. needless to say that damages to the bubble and card are inevidable.
    it has been a long time to see a bubble arrive in that kind of a condition. the seller claims he ships thousands of figures like this, which means, YOUR'S COULD BE NEXT!
    i very rarely discuss these things in public, actually never. but if you like your figures and cards near mint, one should be aware of this.
    i expect more from someone whose shipping is expensive.
    to solve this i was asked to return the item before a new one would be shipped. so basically i'm supposed to pay more for a decent figure just because the seller is not capable of protecting their goods in transit with a large and strong enough box in the first place.
    i also had to wait very long to get responses to my emails.

    the seller refuses to refund. he wants me to ship back the damaged item, causing me to spend even more money. he also suggested to just return the item not registered mail, so that way i have no proof that i returned anything. combine that with his inflated shipping charges, his non existent customer service, and you know what kind of individual you are dealing with!

    Is this someone on eBay, or an online toy collector store? I had some problems with a book I had won on an eBay auction some years ago, first they didn't send it, then I had to get the eBay "Square trader" or "fairtrader" or whatever it is, involved. They then sent me athe book, but the die cut cover was damaged, and the clasp was busted off.

    Oh man! I'm not a "in package" collector, but that would **** me off if I was! That shipping box looks awful if that's the condition it arrived in. And the figure packaging itself was damaged as a result. Some Ebay sellers hike the prices on thier S&H, which isn't right. I'm sorry this happened to you, notify Ebay, see if they can do something for you. Also leave negative feedback for the seller.

    I bought a wave of "Not mint" figures from Entertainment Earth. Almost every figure in the wave had a crushed bubble. I still order stuff from EE, but I no longer buy "not mint". I''d rather pay a little more, and get my figures in at least decent shape. Thanks for the clarification volkerc.
