    if i'm 100% honest I would settle for a fake, would prefer real but a knock off isn't too bad

    Well that sucks because I also bought one! I didn't pay the full price, I made an offer of £22 and if, (as it looks like it will) mine turns out to be fake I will also be reporting it in order to get a refund.

    Doesn't matter what he said.
    It isn't the one pictured.
    Paypal dispute will claim it back on the FACT it is a FAKE item.
    Thats why people pay by paypal it offers this kind of protection.

    Well I wouldn't.
    I know people said if they had the pattern for it they'd make their own.
    If this person had sold the item as one they had made and put up a picture of their bootleg flibble, I wouldn't mind.
    I wouldn't have bought it.
    Also I think all those buyers would have offered alot less or not purchased it either.
    They have lied about what they are selling.

    Wrong side of the thin line between genius and ins
    The first picture is a bit misleading but the second does look like it shows what was sent out. The text also says it isn't the original. I'm not sure you will be able to get the money back

    I agree the seller listed it as not original and none refundable, i asked an he told me that it said it was not original so it is not original but was well made. i could not have made one as good for the £20 it cost me. packaging was not great was basically stuffed into an envelop but it arrived safe and sound and for £1 postage its o.k.

    The first and second picture are both misleading as they have the real Mr Flibble on top.

    "This is not the orginal mr fliblle from red dwarf his hex powers have been removed for health and safty reasons"

    This jokey statement implies you are not buying the prop from the show - saying things like " his hex powers have been removed".
    I knew I wasn't buying a prop, but I thought I was buying the Mr Flibble pictured, which is not the original but a copy made by a manufacture in a limited run not home made and fall apart in the post!

    Is someone the actual seller here?! because I can't believe some of you are saying, some of these things.
    You can pick holes in his auction statement and the picture is misleading, end of, paypal refund!

    If you asked about this before you bought it and still went ahead and bought it, no you can't get a refund.
    The seller takes liability for their listing and if it is misleading, as this is, then you could have got a refund.
    Glad yours was well made, mine is falling apart everywhere! The seller should have made it very clear that these were not the original by saying that he had made them.
    As for the packaging, mine was ripped, hence thats why I think he lost and eye!

    At the end of the day the item is a cheap copy, I still haven't got it yet and its over a week ago that I paid. Then again if the packaging is as its stated here I'll probably never get it.
    There is no way that I would have paid more than a fiver for a cheap knock off. I read the listing the same way as Mrs Barrie and I have no doubt that I'll receive a refund - if I ever receive the item!

    Also this seller has tricked 8 people out of £185. I just hope that everyone goes for a refund.

    I've PM'd you, keep in touch.
    The messages I got back from him were so rude and ridiculous.
    Like you I hope everyone goes for a refund.

    It's competition time: Which Mr Flibble is which? No cheating by asking them to trim their toenails or play the guitar:-D

    Damn right I want a refund!
