A quick call to eBay, explaining the situation in the fact that the sets are missing pieces and you hastily left feedback before receiving the item (evidence by the date on the feedback) should be enough to convince an eBay rep. If it doesn't, ask to speak to someone higher up and they can usually take care of it for you if you persist. :o)
Got back to my office and my wife asked me to pickup candy canes when I made my store run....okay I said, so after work I went back. My hopes was that they might have the Mountain Hut but nope. Almost ready to leave I decided to look behind all the sets on the shelves and found #31010 Tree House which I've wanted for a while but have never seen it in my store. Found two of those and grabbed the candy canes, what a great day!! I take back all the bad things I had to say about how slow they are to add new items to the shelves at my Walmart. Lots of building tonight!!
Was chatting with one of my fellow Bricksetters last week. It revealed that off their own back they'd decided to send another Secret Santa present and at a complete surprise to the recipient. Santa knew just how happy it would make somebody this Christmas.
I learnt today that Santa delivered his package today. I am desperate to hear the recipient's response when she finds out - it's a really sought after LEGO set too. It's been sent completely anonymously so the 'Santa' is unlikely to ever receive any recognition for their act.
I am so moved by Santa's act of kindness I needed to share it.

@Margot where did you get it? Or would you rather not say?... ;-)
The village is now all set up in the living room, looking forward to getting the camera out in a while.
Towards the beginning of the evening there was a bit of a quiz around the tables to warm us up. With 200+ attending, the compaire over the microphone asked the following question:-
"What is James ****'s favourite pastime? Is it a. LEGO or b. ??????"
[I didn't actually hear what 'b' was]
I died. I did. For a few moments my heart stopped beating. Right up until the point we discovered a hairy-arsed Construction Director's favourite pastime was baking cakes.
Quite obviously none of those people are me, as I have already stated I am North Pole based, duh!
And furthermore, I would NEVER have a doughnut in hand whilst on wrapping duty in case of putting grease stains or sugar on the gifts or paper!!! Amateurs, phffft.
LEGO seems to be the main thing under our tree this year so I predict lots of building over the coming days and weeks, woo hoo!!!
You get your Christmas prezzies on Christmas Eve here in Germany. Still find it a bit weird even after 21 years living here - it's just not right :-D
Anyway, well chuffed - got #6860 Batcave from Mrs Legopants and the LotR Black Gate set from the mother-in-law :-)
#10224 and #10230 for me :)
Santa dropped me a Republic Gunship and theEwok Village, and some other non-LEGO things.
Got a couple of the smaller Ninjago Rebooted sets for Christmas as well as the Minifigure Visual History book. All of you that worked and contributed to the latter did a fantastic job!
#79010 Goblin King Battle
#79012 Mirkwood Elf Army
#79014 Dol Guldur Battle
#75024 HH-87 Starhopper
Thanks to my Secret Santa for the following two sets as well, which are great, particularly since I did not provide a wish list! :o)
#70501 Warrior Bike
#30270 Kraang's Turtle Target Practice
I am very pleased with that, but even more, I received some money which will be spent on the new LEGO Star Wars sets (which are coming out tomorrow in theory). Then, on the 29th it is my birthday so there may yet be more to come! :o)
Less chance of ever becoming a reseller I suppose.
