- The lack of knowledge that some vendors have
- The misinformation that some vendors provide
- The price
- The poor condition of some items
There are plenty of figures for sale on Ebay going for a couple of pounds so this seems far too excessive - but again, I'm not an avid collector so I may be wrong.
Like the item above, this is also £49.99 or best offer and again £4.19 P&P.
The Next item on the list is a whopping £79.99 or best offer with £4.19 delivery charge.
The item is described as
"M A S K Job Lot. 3 x Figures with Masks, 3 x Vehicles and 3 x Comics."
In the second lot above we have Jacques LaFluer with the wrong Mask and Bruce Sato's Clone Mask with Matt Trakker.
This lot sees Bruce's clone with Jacques' Miraj Mask.
To say we have 3 vehicles might be a bit of an overstatement! We only have half of Meteor and I can't quite make out if Bandit (Bullet) is complete or not. From what I can make out, Condor seems to be complete asides from no Brad Turner nor Hocus Pocus Mask.
As well as the mix-up with the clone figure and Mask, I'm not sure why the vendor wouldn't have put Ali Bombay and Ace Riker as part of this lot as their respective vehicles (or part thereof) are included in this lot.
The next lot features the first combined issue of Eagle and M.A.S.K. with Iguana, Julio Lopez and Bruce Sato with their respective Masks.
I recently bought Iguana with Lester Sludge and Mudslinger for about the price this vendor is looking for just for the P&P on this item.
Again this item is in at £49.99.
The last two lots, again £49.99 each and both come with one comic, one vehicle and two figures with their respective Masks.
The condition of Firefly isn't great - missing at least the front two tyres and I'm not sure about the condition of Dynamo in the other lot as Split Seconds aren't my speciality.
So here's the thing - we have Lester Sludge in the auction with Firefly rather than Iguana. We have two Julio Lopez's in separate auctions (or has the vendor got confused and imaged the same one twice?) but neither are with Firefly. We also have Bruce Sato in one lot, his clone in another, the clones Mask in a third and his vehicle, Dynamo, in another auction.
It would appear to me that either the vendor's knowledge of M.A.S.K. isn't that great - or perhaps he's trying to be clever in attempt to force someone into buying all the lots to get all of the right figures and vehicles together.
My thoughts - sell the comics as one lot and the vehicles as individual lots with their respective vehicles - oh, and for a hell of a lot cheaper than advertised.
If you are going to sell combinations of comics and toys, would it not also be an idea to have the comic with Lester and Iguana on the cover being sold with the respective toys?
