the file card is more packaging to me. it either gets cut out or tossed. if it comes seperately, i'd consider it an accessory to be included. if carded, not.

I'm going with eveyone else.The stand,Yes.Filecard,no.
When i see complete i don't even think about the filecard.Thats why most sellers/traders will put Complete w/ filecard.You don't need the package to be complete.

File card no
I wouldn't leave the guy negative feedback though, it just seems like a misunderstanding.

How do you define complete? I have 3 Serpentor, one from the 25th carded, one from the DVD pack and one from the Boxed vehicle set. All three come with slightly different items. So which one is complete. I can see a stand, most come with one, but they all don't come with the same items. So what is complete or is it defined by which one you are offering?
Just a few questions.

I truly think it's interesting that some Tankers/collector's actually consider the filecard to be a part of the toy.
What if it were a vintage figure with a re-printed copy of the filecard? Would that be considered complete?
What if the filecard were cut out "inside" the dotted lines and cut into the color? Is that incomplete?
The reason I ask is because no one ever asks if it has the "original" o-ring. Wouldn't a reproduction/new o-ring mean that the figure is actually incomplete? It doesn't come with the original gear/o-ring.
I think if you consider the filecard to be essential that you should also consider everything about the figure.
What about vehicles? Is the vehicle ONLY complete if it comes with instructions? Blueprints/scehmatics?
I don't include those as complete for a loose vehicle.
Also, aren't there three categories of complete condition?
MISB -(New from the store condition) aka Mint in sealed package
MIB complete -(opened toy, but comes with packaging.....i.e. filedcard) Could also be called Mint in package.
Loose complete -Would include toy with accessories.

the file card is from dealer standpoint. they wont pay you as much for a fig without a file card for theier benifit.
so when buying a loose complete vintage figure 85 eel for example.
you are paying for the flippers, backpack ,harpoon,lower jet for backpack, knife,hose,and mint figure and the file card. then they say its complete and sell it to you for $30.
its like buying a car.(you just want a car nothing fancy) but the salesmen sells you the car with the extras ,and you notice it 2 weeks later when you get the bill.
personally i dont want the filecard unless it is the whole back.
but if you go to joe con and are looking for loose complete figures, guaranteed they will have the filecard with them.

I have a drawer full of baggies full of those damned plastic squares. Half the names have typos, or are their "new" names anyways. I can get my Joes to stand without looking like they're standing on square surfboards all the time.
In fact, the only reason I hang on to file cards (I keep the baggied ones from CPs and the entire cards for the single-carded ones I open, except I do tear off the bubbles) and stands is because I know people consider them as part of the figure, in case I ever sell off my collection.
If I were to get a figure without either file card or stand, I wouldn't care personally. I do understand the concern, but I honestly don't consider it a crucial aspect of the figure, either.
Now, if I got a figure without the backpack, helmet or weapon, I'd be pissed. That's definitely not complete. Stand? I wouldn't even miss it.
Regardless, though, I see your point and I do keep the damned things. I regret the day I have to go through and find a specific file card or stand, though. It will take FOREVER.

Yeah stands are a must to be complete. I only consider filecards from the multipacks for completion as they were separate from the packaging.
Does H even sell blank stands?
