I'm still new here so this has probably been covered before, but is anyone else frustrated by the ridiculous practice of sellers on Ebay of describing figures as "99% complete?" I was looking at a version one Flint today, which as I'm sure you all know comes with a backpack and gun. Somehow the backpack was missing and yet ole Flint was still "99%" there. If he also lost his gun, would he be "98%" complete? My brother had a version 1 Gung-Ho years ago that had his head chewed off by our family dog. Could I sell a headless marine and describe him as "97%" complete?
Speaking of which, a related problem occured when I was looking at a figure the other day described as "minty, except for a slightly broken crotch." Uhh, dosen't one cancel the other out? Should we as a group not patronize sellers who write such bizarre, misleading descriptions, or is this just a minor annoyance that nothing can be done about?
Thanks for listening, guys. (Or for reading, I guess.)
