Backout: Zaxon

Post by MNOP » Mon Oct 03, 2016 3:36 pm

First time doing this, so I hope I get it right. Zaxon seemed nice, but he backed out of a deal after the agreement was made. Thankfully, it was before anything was exchanged, but it was for a sizeable purchase and I found it more than a bit infuriating. Notably, when he later stopped communicating after I tried to offer a way to move forward. I sent my last message 9/20, which is in my Outbox still, though he has been on since (10/2 as of this post). He was reading my message prior, but is now outright ignoring me.

Thanks...I appreciate that!

Having run the numbers, I can commit to buying your Skorne lot for $550 on Friday, September 9th. If I find a home for my Cryx sooner, I'll let you know. You can send me your Paypal information at your leisure, and I will provide my shipping address when I send payment.

Thanks again!

Sorry for the delay...its been a bit of a rough work week. I do still want the Skorne. I'm trying to sort out my finances, as I've had some unexpected healthcare-related expenses since we last spoke, and I'm not sure when I'll be able to get the $550 together. I will keep you posted...if in the meantime you get an offer on the lot, I would not begrudge you at all for taking it.

Thanks for your patience.

Regards,
Michael

Confirming this is still a go. Hadn't received a payment or info yet. Ready to ship when I get your info.
I sent him messages asking if he wanted to put just some money down (deposit, which I do with commissions regularly) or anything. He read two of my messages sent on 9/19 and 9/20, but has since gone unresponsive.

More than open to dealing with him, but just didn't appreciate the backing out how he did it after agreeing to make the payment on a set day and then screening/ignoring my messages.

Any word? I see you have read my messages. Just looking for some guidance, since you had committed. Any timeframe? Any response to the idea of a deposit or partial payments?

Hey, just wanted to touch bases. I know you were pretty committed to the purchase originally. I haven't relisted and I was hoping to get an idea of how you would like to proceed?

Do you think you could commit a deposit so I know it will get a home?

Keep me posted. If you want to pay in chunks, you can do that too. I don't mind, I am flexible. Either way, I will hold on to them since you had made the commitment and seem to want them. I understand how life can get in the way sometimes.

Hey, just touching bases. The 9th has arrived and I am hopeful you still want to pick up my Skorne lot.

Let me know! :D

Your collection is impressive and your price is really fair. The smart thing for me to do is pay my September bills...if you still haven't found a home for these in two weeks, I'll likely give them a good home. I'll check back with you then if that is cool.

Yea, GW nailed their plastics. And they dropped Failcast, which was also wise. Not that I love $30/40 per clampack character.

The Skorne are yours - just get back to me when you are ready and we will work out the details! :D

All metal Karn. All metal Swordsmen. Metal pMorg from old metal box set. Which is hopefully a selling point - I always preferred the metal to their restic. :D

I primed them very recently, so the stuff that is primed and not bare is good to go painting-wise.

While I was looking for someone interested in my Cryx models or filling out my Trolls collection, I'm pretty interested in your listing. Would you say the primed models would be ready to paint, or would they need to be given a bath and reprimed? Also a few other questios...
-Is Molik Karn the newer, partially resin sculpt?
-Are the swordsmen metal or plastic?

Thanks!
Like that?
