I don't intend this to be a rant thread so please do not think i'm going there, what I am interested in is people's opinions when buying lego sets online.
As an example of this I've purchased a fair few sets for my collection, and I've noticed even when people list the sets as complete there (In only a few cases) is usually a piece or two missing... normally I'd not mind but when its the older sets and you want to get a complete set trying to find vintage pieces to replace these is hassle and more money... this narks me a little as the reason I'm getting the sets is to complete them all. missing bricks take away from that.
Another is how they swap bricks without mentioning it, even 1-2 bricks swapped (Sometimes not the exact same size or colour) an example of this being how I've recieved a set with a red double sided sloped brick which was 2x2 instead of the 3x2 it should have been.
Am I just being too fussy a collector, or are these sort of things worth hassling them over for replacement parts / missing parts because personally having to go looking for them myself now...
Just wanting to see what others think to see if I need to relax my expectations or should I be kicking up a fuss
