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?
