    So I found a balrog to make up a topper for LOTR. I have made two, kept one and sold one. I love mine so much I figured I'd make another for someone with a LOTR that needs a topper.Got it for a great price, waited over a week for it to get here with holiday shipping, it finally arrived on Monday, yay! NOT!

    I picked up the broken, squashed box off my driveway an it sounded exactly like the scene from Ave venture pet detective. I cringed as I opened it up....

    Now I'm dealing with trying to get all my $ back. I received most of it back but the seller did not refund all of it because he had to pay PayPal fees so he is not refunding me that. Only $5 and change but it is still very frustrating. I'm sure I'll have to chalk the rest up to a loss

    The guy shipped it using plastic grocery bags! 1 bag taped around it, it was put in the bottom of the box and then a few bags on top. That's it! No wonder it shattered

    I think the OCD in me is going to try and glue it together just to see if I can. Who doesn't love a good puzzle?

    Might as well try and fix it, but that still sucks

    I might but there are quite a few small pieces at the bottom of the box

    Mike, I did the same thing, bought two, put lights in them, kept one and sold one, the first one came in bags same as yours and the horn was broken off, I glued it back on, the Balrog Voltive's are very rare and make the best toppers, I'll send picts of mine to you, Tom Test

    Do whatever you have to do to glue it back together as it's very rare.

    Mike, Here are the picts of mine, Tom

    When you refund someone using PayPal it refunds your fees. He just kept it
