And so, the figures from China arrived... Yes! After all that waiting, they weren't even the right figures. Displayed as the 3-6cm figures, the ones actually being sold, are the reduced quality mini figures of 1-3cms. I've requested a full refund, as falsifying information, as well as displaying different figures to what is being sold, is a breach of terms and conditions. I just hope I get my refund.
The good news of today however, is both my Bulbasaur evolution 3 set and my 50 figures from Ebay have come. And yes, these figures are all the right ones. I am well pleased with them. Why did I buy these? Well, after having returned my models to Amazon (got refund which is great), I had another look at the ones ordered from China. After reading their information, I then went on to read reviews. I wish I had done this from the start, but generally I find some people talk a load of... well, rubbish, in reviews that either actually doesn't relate, or is disputed by all the other reviews.
Though about 3 reviews said they were great figures (my guess is they never knew about the actual proper 3-6cm figures), a lot stated that these models were incorrectly described, as they were in fact the 1-3cm models and poor quality.
Before ordering the models from amazon and finding out they were 1-3cms, I had never known they even did smaller versions of the models apart from those found in the game machines. So now, I was worried. I tried to think positively, but I couldn't shake the fact that people were saying they were the 1-3 not 3-6. So I went on Ebay to try and find some proper models, finally coming across two people I've bought from. And so far so good, Ebay has come through.
