I recently had a transaction here on the Tank in which I purchased a 'loose n complete' B.A.T. from another Tanker. When I think of 'complete,' I think of the figure, all accessories, the stand, and the file card. The B.A.T. was offered as loose and complete, however when the figure arrived the file card AND the stand were missing. When I enquired why they were not included, I was told that 'many Tankers and traders now consider figures 'complete' when the figure and all accessories are present, and not the stand and/or file card. The stand and the file card would be a bonus like vintage Joes.'
Is the stand not part of a 'complete' 25th figure? Or is it true, Tankers, that you would simply consider a stand, which is included inside the package, a bonus to your purchase? Should the file card also be included as a 'complete' 25th figure?
Should I leave negative feedback for not including the stand and refusing to do anything about it?

I consider the stand part of a "complete" 25th figure. It comes with the figure as an accessory, so it's part of the "complete" package.
Filecards are another matter altogether....

Complete should be everything including the file card and accessories. Otherwise it isn't really complete is it? I guess the figures that come in the troop builder packs could be an exception since they only come with one file card.

Gotta have the stand at least. Hell, most of the figures can't stand up without them.
I could see where some people might not need the filecard, but I personally consider a figure incomplete without one.

Yes to the stand, no to the filecard.
If you include the filecard, why not include the pictures of the figures on the back of the whole card? If you include the pictures and filecard, the why not include the plastic bubble?
Then, it might as well be on sealed card.
It should have the stand.

Yeah the stand should come with him to be "complete" but i think the Target exclusive vehicles were sans stands.
Fc's however are subjective..some people care others don't.

It should have the stand, not really a big deal about the filecard though.

I dont count the file card, unless it's still uncut from the package. Even if you include the file card and it has been cut from the package, it's still "incomplete" because your missing the figure bubble and the rest of the figure card abck.

25th Complete: Figure, accessories, stand, file card. The stand and file card should be included... geez, it hasn't been that long ago that they were released.
Card backing is extra to me.
Pre-25 Complete: Figure, accessories
