well even he told you what you got is a good deal but its still different when your mindset earlier said that its surely a great deal, and it came from the stuff he put on the bid..
great thing to put a negative on him, tricky seller should be received it to make other buyers more careful with him..
and if its hard to contact the guy by internet, he could give you his cellphone number so you can text him.. if a guy who wanna spend a $250 for just 1 prototype figure but doesn't have a cellphone.. well its obvious about all the crap he talked about..

hi,sorry for what happened.i think the seller should have revised his auction,or made a new one with new pictures,(better pictures)and explained his auction clearly.if he has 50 figures,he should name the 50 figures just like he named the vehicles and drivers.

File a Paypal claim. It was a misleading auction. I would file a claim and ask for 1/2 the money back. Do not leave feedback until he refunds at least half. If he refuses then let the claim be decided by Paypal. They do look at all of the auction. You can also leave them copies of the e-mails that you received from him. If you are denied and he does not refund then leave a neg.

This guy actually has more Joes up for auction right now. None of them are stuff he told me I'd get but it sort of blows a hole in his "I gave those figures to an 8 year old kid" claim. Why would you give those figures away and then turn around and try and make a few bucks off a few lesser figures? An yeah . . why didn't he also pull the prototype Mindbender so he could get the $250 this mysterious guy was supposedly offering? It makes no sense.
Like I said, I already left him a negative. He told me if I left him one he will get it retracted but whatever. Don't think I'm going to bother with a PayPal claim though.

That's like posting a car on there for 10,000 bucks, and then only sending the buyer the tires. He sounds like one of those guys where you can't tell if he's a jerk or not. First he offers back some money, but then you don't get what you paid for? Not cool.

well it depends i do a lot of ebay i had one similar issue did he note the revision in the auction description? if he did he most likly used the same pictures instead of using new ones. If he did not describe it then you can file a claim but if he did in the description then technically its your problem. its hard to tell all i can do is give you advice on my experiences on ebay

Ask him if he wants his "$250" Dr. Mindbender prototype figure back in return for giving you your money back. That way he could sell the figure and still make about a $100 profit.
If he doesn't go for that ask him for the contact info to the person who wanted to pay "$250" for it. Tell him that if he gives you the guy's info and he comes through then you will just keep the money that you paid for the auction and give him the rest for giving you the info.
In either case you would break even and have some free Joes.
I know you wouldn't want to give him anything back right now because you feel he cheated you and doesn't deserve it. I just figured that you could do what you needed to do in order to at least get your money back.
By the way here is link to an auction that has a different Dr. Mindbender prototype going for $9.99 as a "Buy It Now" auction...
So who really knows if the one you got would ever go for $250.

You accept that you only "paid" $102.50 for the lot. But for ME...on ebay, I factor in the shipping cost to what I spend for the the lot. If I bought a lot for say $150.....and shipping was $90.....to me....I paid $240 for the lot because thats how much Im out.
