After a long, long time, today was to be the day I'd finally get a Hulk PF. When I unpacked it, I was heartbroken to find that while the seller included the soft foam sheets in the packaging, they were not wrapped around the figure and instead bunched up and stuck in a little opening on the side.

On the right thumbnail, there is a pretty big chip / paint rub. It looks more like a chip to me than a rub. Furthermore, the part where the hand goes is not directly up against the hard foam. It looks like it just sits up there in the air when the packaging is completely closed. So while the seller really should have used the soft foam to wrap and protect it, I'm thinking this damage was done before it shipped. What do you think?

Now here's my problem: I have absolutely NO talent when it comes to touch ups and everything. I wouldn't know the first thing in making that look somewhat decent. Would it be too hard to dab some paint in there and make it look like there isn't a big chip there?

I'm so disappointed because I paid for what I thought was a statue in "new" condition. This damage is far from it.

I would appreciate any and all help!

I don't think that happened in shipping bro. That is some serious chipping, like it got bumped into by something hard (a wall for example).

Even if someone agreed to fix it for free, shipping would be very expensive back an forth.

I would ask for a partial refund from the seller to cover the repair/shipping.

Regarding the repair, you could always just dab some paint in there, but it's going to stick out like a sore thumb (no pun intended :) )

Hey, haha! I just PMed you to ask if you could take a look at my thread.

Yeah, I agree that it must have happened before shipping. I don't want to go through the headaches of sending it back and forth to someone for repairs either. I'd rather just snag the next one that comes along. Because I got it on ebay, I'm going to be SOL on the cost of shipping to send it back anyways.

What would you do to fix it? Is it real hard to find matching paint?

If it were a single color it wouldn't be bad, but you see that black 'misty' looking color on top of the yellow? That is airbrush work, which you won't be able to accomplish with a paintbrush.

If it were me I would think that some acyclic could help touch that up with no problem, you might have to mix a few colors to get the gold paint if hobby lobby doesn't have the exact match.

I remember getting a HULK from a member a few years back and the styro was not taped, I'm not sure if members here on the board either forget to tape it and seal it back up or if it's just pure laziness are their part but whenever you know the sheer mass and weight of this piece bouncing around the styro you would figure that the collector would know better. Maybe they think it causes less damage to the piece if it's no confined, but to me I'd rather have it sealed in the styro so it doesn't move around and cause cases like this.

Man, I feel for you. It may have been during shipping because of the way it sat in, but if I had to put money on it I would bet it was not.

Was this an ebay item? Was it bought in the same country? If the answer is yes, I would say return it and take the hit on shipping.

If this was an ebay item, and it was bought out of country, then I would try to do some serious negotiation. I would base it on what it would cost a professional to get it fixed, plus the the time it takes to bring it back and forth and finding a person to do it (within reason of course).

If this was not an ebay item and PayPal, then negotiate what you can for damages without shipping back. A respectable seller would do that.

I don't think shipping insurance will cover that, I could be wrong, you may want to give that a chance too.

Good luck, and I feel for you that this happened.

:lecture :lecture :lecture agreed and on the misting part is what would be more difficult not impossible but difficult, make sure to cover the rest of the statue up if you are preparing to mist the outer part of the nail. Start light.

It was bought on ebay, so chances are I'll only get hit with the shipping cost to send it back. Unfortunately, he told me it cost him $95 to ship from him to me (only from NY to CT), so I'm guessing I'll take that kind of hit.

How would I go about finding a hobby shop or someone in my area who may have experience with fixing this kind of thing? I wonder if someone in a hobby shop would be able to take care of it for me.

Given that you paid market value for this (at least I am going to assume you did), then ship it back. The $100 will be worth it.

Now if you get a spanking deal on it, then again, you may want to renogiate.

For me, I would send it back in a heartbeat if I had paid market value for a new one. I know I could always pick up one in new condition for the same price or less.

I checked all around for little chips of paint or rubbing in the packing and I've found nothing.

I sent all of the information and pictures to the seller. I'll see what he says.

It sucks because I was looking forward to this! I couldn't wait to open the box. You wouldn't believe my shock when first I noticed he didn't wrap it in the soft foam sheets, and then again when I noticed the paint chips. :monkey2:monkey2:monkey2

Well, here's the deal: I scooped it up on ebay for just under $800 shipped. That's a little lower than what they used to go for, but the listing says it was in new condition.

Mr. Green, if I end up sending this back, I may take a trip to your shop and see if I can barter with cash. That way I can see it before buying and I could "hand carry" it home.

May be better to call ahead and save a trip, unless you're willing to pay close to the 1k. But who knows he may be more pliable in person....

That damage was done BEFORE shipping, there isn't anything that would cause it to chip like that while being boxed; those aren't paint rubs, those are areas where the statue was dinged or hit with something.

For a paint fix it will be tough, you would need to smooth out the rough edges and then of course match the paint; matching wouldn't be really too tough, but achieving the "blackened" areas without an air brush might be difficult. I suppose a dry brush could work alright.

Sorry man. :monkey2

I think he wants $1000 for it since someone offered $850 and he turned it down saying "I can get 1k for it from Ebay".

I took a close look 1 foot away about 3 months ago, frontal view, and saw no damage. Ebay might have a better deal but we all know how risky it is, especially with all the fakes around. If I have the $$$, I would definitely buy it from him.

Does it matter? It wasn't in excellent condition when it arrived to you, so unless it is the fault of the shipping company (very doubtful based on what you post), it is his fault. He should be required to reimburse you the full cost plus the shipping cost back to him, in my opinion. The fact that he used stock photos instead of the actual item for sale works against the guy, way I see it, because you don't know what it looked like prior to being shipped. At that kind of price, you would think that seller would take more care in listing all potential issues with that statue.

Hell, I take care to do that when selling $10 action figures.

I just got sent a message from the seller telling me to please keep my opinion to myself that it was damaged before he sent it and that he is going to follow through with a Fedex claim.

Paypal informed me not to release it to Fedex without having already received a refund. They said it could take well past the Paypal protection claim time for Fedex to determine whether it is their fault or not.

Paypal said my other option would be to file a claim, ship it back to him, be refunded, and let him try to get a claim on his own once he has it again.

What do you guys think?

You've got 45 days to file a Paypal claim. Just for the sake of working with the guy, you might consider giving him a week to try and work out the FedEx claim business, but similarly, I wouldn't wait very long. However, if you really believe there is no chance that the shipping caused the issue, then the seller loses the benefit of the doubt and the right to have you act friendly toward him. I would make 100% sure that Paypal will refund you once you put it in the mail, though.

FedEx sucks huge donkey balls in my experience, so I wouldn't rely on them to do a damn thing correctly, anyway.

SEND IT BACK...you have been waiting all this time and now you have a damaged statue. I would NEVER be able to enjoy it...NEVER. Evertime i would look at the damn thing it would ruin all my fun. I wouldn't concentrate on the beauty of the piece, i would see if i could see the flaw from different angles like an obsessed fool.

If there's a big green piece of a finger nail in the box/styro, it may have happened during shipping...but i HIGHLY doubt it. If there no chip, he's bull____ting you

GET YOU MONEY BACK and GET ANOTHER ONE, from an honest seller. There are others out there, this is not the only one!!!

I'd get the refund through paypal just for him saying "keep your opinion to yourself.":mad:

Why should you have to wait for a "possible" fedex refund. Like you said, there were no chipped pieces in the box. I'm sure fedex would follow the same line of thinking that you have.

It was bought on ebay, so chances are I'll only get hit with the shipping cost to send it back. Unfortunately, he told me it cost him $95 to ship from him to me (only from NY to CT), so I'm guessing I'll take that kind of hit.

How would I go about finding a hobby shop or someone in my area who may have experience with fixing this kind of thing? I wonder if someone in a hobby shop would be able to take care of it for me.

this seller ripped you off. no way in hell this cost $95.00 to ship from NY to CT. no way! no way! take it from somewho has shipped atleast 4 hulks.

also if you send it back, you should get refunded fully including shipping.

if you dont care for the hassle and dont mind retouching it up, get a decent partial refund. no less than $50.00.

if you need some advice about touching it up, feel free to pm me.

:lol

Why would I be lying about not seeing pieces in the box? How does that make any sense at all?

Speak to anyone who owns one and they will tell you there is a cut out in the foam where the hand goes, and that the hand is not physically able to touch any part of that foam. If I have a second I'll take a picture of that spot in the foam to prove there is no sign of paint rubbing where the hand would go too.

EDIT: Here are pictures of the big cut out part where the hand rests. I encourage you to ask others who own it to confirm that the hand sits freely in that spot and does not touch anything when it is closed in and taped up. If the damage was caused in this foam box, you would certainly see some kind of mark in here; do you agree? Remember that the mark goes through two layers of paint and chips into the polystone.

You've got 45 days to file a Paypal claim. Just for the sake of working with the guy, you might consider giving him a week to try and work out the FedEx claim business, but similarly, I wouldn't wait very long. However, if you really believe there is no chance that the shipping caused the issue, then the seller loses the benefit of the doubt and the right to have you act friendly toward him. I would make 100% sure that Paypal will refund you once you put it in the mail, though.

FedEx sucks huge donkey balls in my experience, so I wouldn't rely on them to do a damn thing correctly, anyway.

I certainly have no problem trying to work with the seller. I have been nothing but cordial so far, although I did tell him that while I don't think it was damaged in shipping, the chances of it being damaged in shipping would have decreased if he wrapped it in the soft foam sheets instead of bunching them up and sticking them in an empty area in the foam.

The only thing Paypal warned me of is that if I allow Fedex to come pick it up and investigate a claim, it could take more than the time I have to file a Buyer Protection claim and I could end up being out the money and even the statue. They suggested that I ask him to refund me before releasing it to Fedex.

It all depends on who he used to ship it. My Gray Hulk was $135 to ship from Cali to Ohio...because the guy used USPS.:banghead It would have been $41 via Fedex. Seller is a buddy of mine so he only got a tongue lashing, lol since he sold it for C+S...this was when it first came out.

Personally I wouldn't buy anything more than $200 bucks without asking for a few individual pics. Unless its not a rare items. Stock pics from manufacture/distributor ain't gonna cut it. Even so, seller might still be using the same personal pics from other auction/sales but at least its a step safer. E-mail for pics is a safer bet especially for a high priced items. And you can post em here for confirmation that its not possibly from a douche bag.

I already told the seller I understand that I have to pay for return shipping, as it is part of the Buyer Protection Policy. It's a loss I'll have to take.

As for the opened stuff thing, it was listed as being in new condition with some box wear from storage. I was lead to believe it was new. :monkey2

If there were no paint chips or scrapings on the foam , it was damaged before it was shipped. This looks to be a case of the seller wanting to get market value for a damaged item. His intent possibly could have been to see if you the buyer would not complain, or try to get a claim from the shipper. If it was me, I would send it back, or ask for a partial refund to fix the damage. If you plan to keep it, you can figure out an amount that you are comfortable with.

It would be easy to fill that damage and repaint. Without an airbrush, you might not get an exact match. So, down the road if you resell, you will have to disclose the damage, and you will take a hit on the selling price. I would not let him file a claim on this and wait, as it is obvious it was not damaged during shipping.
If it was me, and obviously you are not me, I would ask for a 150.00 partial refund. If he did not agree to that, I would send it back with signature confirmation and eat the shipping cost. I do not think it will cost 100.00 to ship, he probably made 40.00 or so off the shipping. Anytime I buy a higher end item off ebay, I request pics of the actual item. This helps to avoid these types of situations. I hope it works out for you. Just my 2 cents.:peace

I understand. I've had similar problems. It's a shame there are dishonest sellers using ebay to unload damaged items. And the older an item is, the higher the chance of a problem.

I wrote back to him to make sure he understands I will have to initiate a Paypal claim and he would have to agree to the refund upon its return before I could send it. I just don't want to hit him with a claim as a surprise.

Don't send it back until you've been refunded. Make the paypal claim saying 'not as described' dont mention damage in transit the buyer can do that its not down to you. Then when you get refunded send it back to PAYPALS HEADQUARTERS tracked and insured. The buyer will have to pay to get it sent back to him from paypal and will go some way to teach him not to be a lying scrotum sack in the first place.

It's possible he made $$ off shipping but he may not have. It all depends on who he used to ship it. If he used USPS he didn't make squat on shipping, lol.

Should be easy to figure out what he actually paid. Just use the shipping company's calculator and input the data. Ozzfan will need to do this anyway to find the cheapest shipping to send it back.

Now just sit and wait. Paypal will tell you when to send it back to him. And make sure you pay for delivery confirmation AND signature confirmation. Because if you don't use both of those, prepare to not receive the refund.

Anything over $250 and Paypal requires signature confirmation. Delivery confirmation alone isn't enough. You could prove delivery confirmation and the seller argue he never received it, it was stolen, etc. and you would lose. I've been through this before.

delivery confirmation AND signature confirmation. at USPS is the same thing, they can't do both or the signature confirmation is a actually delivery confirmation just with a signature.

Thanks for the tips, guys.

I shipped it back via Fedex (like how he sent it to me) with Direct Signature Required. That means that Fedex will not release it unless someone who lives in that residence signs for it.

Here's the kicker: Remember how I was told the shipping cost was $95?

Here's what Fedex charged me to send it back exactly the same way: $33.47

To the seller's credit, it looks like it was shipped from a 3rd party shipping place and they do tend to ream you. I do think this will work out because he has been very communicative and helpful. I will let you know if I receive a refund.

I am sure you will find another one soon enough. I'm even more sure you'll be much happier in the long run with a NM piece. Sadly, this is all part of doing business on eBay and on fan forum boards.

I don't want to run anyone's name through the mud. Honestly, I think it was just an oversight on the seller's part. I think he never noticed it and sent it off thinking it was mint. Since then-- with the exception of that one snarky comment about me keeping my opinion to myself about it being chipped before shipping-- he has really tried to be cordial and quick with his replies and offers of apologies.

I've done my best to make this work as well. I've simply forwarded the advice and options Paypal offered me. I paid for return shipping and drove to ship it back literally the minute he confirmed a refund option on the Paypal claim. I even offered to complete a mutual agreement to cancel the transaction so he would get his ebay fees back and to note a positive feedback saying something like "Item arrived damaged and seller worked to quickly provide me with a refund." I mean, until since the package has been delivered, he's kept great communication and it seems like he's going to help me. I just don't think you would be likely to end up in a situation like this 99.9% of the time with this guy. I think I just got hit with bad luck.

I hope I'm right anyways and I get refunded quickly. It's really all in his hands right now.

I had already moved the money to my bank account before I shipped it. He put in a claim saying he didn't purchase it and Paypal immediately put my account on hold with a negative balance for the amount. After proving to them he signed for the item, they took the hold off my account. For the week or so this went on, my account was basically useless. I couldn't even pay for outstanding auctions.

The seller's probably reading this thread right now...

What are you implying?

In other news: still no refund.

He claimed that they put a hold when I made the claim. Hopefully this is actually the case.

Ok, first off once you made the claim, all communication between you and the seller should have stopped immediately. All communication should have been through Paypal.

Now, some questions:
- Did Paypal tell you the funds were being held?
- Did Paypal tell you to send the statue back?
- Did Paypal tell you anything after you filed the claim?
- Did you send the package back to the seller with signature confirmation?

If the answer to any of those questions is NO, then this is most likely going to be an expensive lesson learned.

Final Update: The seller has refunded me! Like I said before, I think I just got too antsy once I saw it was delivered.

All-in-all, the seller did a nice job of working with me on this and making sure I was refunded within a reasonable amount of time. All I'm out is the cost of shipping back to him.

Now my search continues for a piece with no damage! Thanks for all of your advice and support! I appreciate it!

I have a HULK PF, he's purple and has some scrapping on the face and I've been biting his toe nails, asking $850.00 paypal fees and shipping not included and if you want insurance that will be extra as well.

I'm glad to hear you got your money back... However, having had experienced something like this before as well, I must say, I hate having to pay for return shipping on a misrepresented item. It's the same as burning money to a cinder for no reason, or worse, buying a Cable or Bishop statue.
