Well she's definitely had a head-swap! It's blatently obvious now she's here. I've emailed the seller to see if he would accept $150 for her but even then I'm still leaning more towards returning for a full refund. I'll let you know what he comes back with xx

  Well, darn!! I hate to hear that!! If she isn't what you wanted I think I would just ask for a return and be done with it; especially since she was supposed to be a gift. ;)

  Regardless, I hope that you can get it all sorted with ease!! Keep us posted!!

Now the question is, did the seller knowingly put it up for auction with a different head at a high starting price or did the auction skyrocket to 4 digits while everyone bid wildly?  Let us know how they respond.  :(

Ouch! I am sorry to hear about that. I would be asking for a refund, especially if it is obvious that she had a head swap. Like others have mentioned you could use the money to buy a different Ladybird that is in better condition.

I am really curious if the seller even knew if her head was swapped or not. Even if they did know they probably wouldn't admit it..

I think the seller genuinely didn't know as he deals in Greek collectables rather than ponies and he seemed very honest. I just hope he doesn't prove me wrong and not reply to me as I've had nothing yet!

Luna suggested in the Nirvana forum that he may have the head on another pony being as he obtained Ladybird in a lot so I have asked about this but before I came back on here he had replied and said he would take $250 or that I could return her. He was really very nice and I do believe he genuinely didn't know about this, he's probably gutted he thought he had a rare expensive pony that was going to fetch him a fortune :P  But anyways, I digress. I can't and won't pay $250 for her, so I politely declined his offer and told him I'd send her back tomorrow.

I did just email him again to ask him to check for other pink pony heads though!  It's a long shot as he may have already sold any others, he only had one other for sale when I bought Ladybird, but worth asking for sure!

I'll let you know, but unless he is lucky and finds her head then she's back on her way to Greece tomorrow.

I've asked him to state in the auction if he relists about the switched head and told him that the community is aware of her so he should be honest 

I really hope he relists her and someone else who is happy with a  head-switched Ladybird buys her for a fair price because she is so cute! But Ladybird is my ULTIMATE grail and I can't just settle. I would've been fine with her NDS pen marks and symbol rub... but not this.

Thanks again for the advice and support.

Sarah xx

 I'm so sorry to hear she isnt what you wanted, but at least you can send her back for a full refund . It would be awesome if he actually had her real head on another pony , but if not, save your monies, and another Ladybird will come along for you :hug:  its best to go with what will make you happy

Just a little update:

I just checked my tracking info and Ladybird (or Ladycandy? Cottonbug? :P ) is back in Greece, in Athens awaiting processing for delivery to the seller :)

I emailed him to tell him this and he replied to say he will refund as soon as he gets her, so at least it's all looking positive.

That's good new Sarah-Bee.  I am honestly glad to hear he was so willing to work with you, especially with the amount of money that was involved.
 
Keep us posted about the refund.  :)

Refund received! :D

He is a very genuine seller, I have left him positive feedback because I can tell he really didn't know about the head swap and has been so good about sorting it out bless him!

Just be aware of her if he does relist guys ;) Some of you have expressed an interest in her which is great, I do hope he lists her at a low price so she can go to a collector!

Thanks for being there for me through this, was a bit scary with the amount of money involved!

Good to hear. Hopefully someone will bump this thread if he relists without mentioning the head swap.

He has relisted her and has made proper corrections to the listing, so no worries! :)
