I also agree, a vehicle can be 100% complete without a box, insturctions, file card or the figure. All of that just makes it a completist's dream come true. A vehicle with all of it's actual parts of the vehicles itself like missiles, seats, straps, antennas, mudflaps, mounted guns, treads etc. is complete in my eyes. Also to be free of smoke residue and smell with nice stickers and no fading is also a plus
You can always find the file card, figure, box elsehwere....

If they would just say "with" or "without" driver, pilot or figure it would save a lot of time. Wouldn't have to click on each auction individually & wouldn't have to waste time emailing the seller. Sometimes you can't tell by the picture. And sometimes the driver is IN the vehicle so you can't see it.
I was just looking at a Liquidator that was listed as complete. Only had 1 picture & it was from the top. I emailed the seller about the missiles because I couldn't see them in the pic. Sure enough none of the missile were included. People should do a little research before they list stuff. I have a friend that's too lazy to search Google, always expects me to search for him & tell him the answers. My answer is always the same: "Google is your friend" and then think to myself "you lazy bastard!".

Since I collect 25th/ME/RoC figures, vintage vehicles really don't need a driver to be "complete". I agree totally, though, that you could say the vehicle is "complete" without the whole "100%" stuff, since it isn't true in any sense. I have found as well that most ebay sellers have no idea what is complete or not - they stand behind "it looks complete but see my fuzzy odd angled picture to see if it is or not." Just a trip to YoJoe would solve a lot of issues.

I agree that there are varying opinions regarding what is "complete" and what is not. In my opinion, the vehicle is complete with the figure but without fc, bp, box, etc. Just like i think a figure is complete without a fc. But it's a murky issue. I find it irritating for someone to say "Vintage Rattler mib" but you receive it and its been opened, assembled, and stickered. Sure, its complete, and it has the box, but it ain't MIB in my opinion. I don't normally buy MIB stuff, since i am an avid opener, so i don't run into that problem often. But like many others, i think the seller should be very precise in their listing, but the buy should also ask all apropriate questions before buying/bidding. Caveat Emptor!

I definitely consider vehicle and driver as separate items. If the two are together, all the better, but a vehicle is complete as a vehicle without a driver. I'm sitting in my living room, and I don't consider the van outside in front of my house to be "incomplete" because I'm sitting in here.
Pics of my collection found here!
