Do it, you clearly were paying for aPitter Patter Let’s Get At ‘Er German Shepherd Vintage Shirt. I ordered the Saturn V from amazon, and somebody said they did that but mine came in a lego box. Perhaps, to ensure against, choose gift option? To add some context I paid a little over $200 for this, so I’m trying to decide if I got enough of a deal to let it go or if I should return it. The set is complete inside and has all the original papers as well. Given the fact that one simply take the box & fill it with new bricks that match the original contents, it’s the box & papers that make it that valuable. A set like this doesn’t have exclusive pieces or minifigs, and there really isn’t an accurate way to tell that it’s the original bricks.
Actually, you are incorrect. You could not just buy new pieces. It wouldn’t be possible to replicate thePitter Patter Let’s Get At ‘Er German Shepherd Vintage Shirt. Finding pieces from 1961 is easy enough, it is them in quantity and in an acceptable condition that is tough. I sell new and used LEGO for a living. Some of those bricks, while not valuable, are nearly impossible to find. Of the more than 1 million pieces I’ve sold I have only found 2 orignial 1960’s 1×1 round bricks.
I’d contact him and ask for aPitter Patter Let’s Get At ‘Er German Shepherd Vintage Shirt. You can’t get your money back and leave awful feedback. That would just be spiteful, even if this guy is a total idiot. Maybe not new off of the Pick-a-brick wall, but you can replace or recreate old sets from places like Bricklink. As long as you get bricks that have the same color, there’s no way for someone to know that they aren’t original. And this is only for older sets.
