Hm I wish you all the best for the animal friends! I hope they will not "run around" in the package too much, maybe youre lucky and they are stuck between the bigger items!
Crossing my fingers for you!!
Mamikreisel in general is difficult when it comes to damages and such. I dont know how it is these days but I bought some pony items last year and one of the (the G4 train set) came to me not working. It wasnt damaged during shipping, it was just not working (ah and the small pony on the front of the train was broken...). And did they do anything? Nope... I tried messaging the seller, no luck. They just said "It worked when I had it." and the mamikreisel.de team just told me I should try talking to them again. Nothing else. Gave them negative feedback. They had it deleted because they claimed "It worked when I had it." Lol... yeah. Its a nice platform in general but when it comes to buyers safety there is not much they do :/
Reminds me of "I unpacked the MOC for you to save on postage!" ... there goes MOC Firefly and Dancing Butterflies *sigh*
Please tell me this isn't true!
Even non-collectors cannot be that stupid ...I'd never unpack an item or change it in any way from the auction pictures
. You sell something as pictured, it's as simple as that.
yes sadly that happened. I had just re-started collecting back then (2004) and it was an Ebay auction, I mean two seperate ones lol. No pics just the name of the pony and no description on each, both same seller (still dont know why I even bid lol). I paid then the seller messaged me what I said before. They were MOC... and they unpacked then!! gosh... they didnt even save the darn card or brush!!! GAAAAH! Lol. Nowadays I can laugh about it but back then... man.
I even had a seller cutting the backcard to make it smaller o.o "Because it didnt fit into the package"... or that man throwing away the box of Grooming Parlor because "it was old" ... I only bought it for the box lol. Or that one using the original box from Show stable to pack said playset o.o it was over and over damaged with duct tape when it arrived
Sometimes I though think you make it worse the more you ask for better packaging... I had it happen that sellers backed of from a bargain I got because I asked for save packaging. They might have sensed it was worth more than the ebay auction gave lol. Some made up pretty funny stories why they now just could not sell it like "Oh the dog chewed ot it!!!!" or "Oh noooooo, my daughter has accidentally given it away to a kid" blablabla.
