MNiceGuy: Looking for Input on eBay Purchase
Today I received something I've wanted for a long time: a Mega Core Magnetizer. I picked it up on eBay from a seller that described the set as "complete" and in "good, played-with condition". As I'm sure many of you know this is a somewhat expensive set. I paid $88 which I know isn't going to get me a "mint" or "sealed" copy but I did expect something reasonably good.
The dismay started when I opened the package. Almost all the pieces came in a department store bag that had been tied in a knot. As I assembled the set I noticed that many of the smaller pieces have rather serious bite marks. I do keep a stock of spare bricks but I don't have enough to 'restore' this Mega Core.
I've restored sets in the past; my favorite being a Galactic Mediator from my childhood but I'm not so sure I should be restoring something after just getting it.
For the price should I just live with it or am I within reason to expect something more?

I would say good played with condition does not mean chew to death pieces.
Id say contact the seller and report it and go from there
The seller has over 1,500 feedback at 100% and I am certain that he doesn't want a negative... I would at least message the guy and say "Hey, you said played with, but you didn't say gnawed on" if he has any integrity at all, he/she will at least contact you and possibly offer you some money back...
