wow man the blows, any resolution yet?? I had that happen to me with some vintage Light Sabers for my Luke and Obi figures. The guy assured me over and over and swore up and down that they were the vintage sabers from the figures. When i got them its was a cheap painted plastic stick. I was pissed. Guy wouldnt refund my money either
You should take that up with Paypal, especially if you have the emails where he claimed they were authentic

Airdevon: sorry to hear about the tail fins, I too thought it would be an awesome find if they were really black. the seller also emailed me and told me they were not painted they just got too pricey. good luck getting your money back!

In 1989 Toys'R Us ran an exclusive Night Force set of vehicles Night Boomer, Night Scrambler, and Night Ray.
Night Boomer was an all black XP-14F Skystriker model with a darkened canopy and orange nose cone. The missles were also an all orange plastic.
I used to have one of these, but am not certain where it is now. For all I know it could still be in my parents garage. I don't know if it was black plastic or painted. I do remember it was not a dull black but a gloss coat sort of finish to it.
Sorry to hear about your E-bay experience, but it is still possible you got some tail fins for this model if it was painted plastic and not just a gloss finished black plastic. Worth looking into at least.

Night Boomer tail fins aren't even black are they? I thought they were a dark gray along with the swing wings.

I have a night boomer and the fins are dark gray, not even close to black really, at least they are distinctly not black. the ones in that auction are black and incidentally the auction has been re listed and is going on now. I think the guy that bought them got a refund and the seller re listed.

My Sky striker has white fins. The cartoon had black I believe in one episode.

Thanks all for your concern and comments!
Luckily, the seller did end up sending me a full refund (including postage price)!
Apparently there had been a miscommunication between the parent (person who listed the auction) and the son (person who answered the parent's question regarding paint).
I was, however, surprised to see it relisted without any mention of the painted tail fins...
I hope the new buyer is happy with the lot!
