    For those that are tracking (or thinking about bidding) on this 06 Botcon Megatron you may want to think again. The picture for some odd reason stuck in my mind and that made do a bit of searching. Looks like a different seller (who doesn't live in Thailand but in the US) has extremely similar pictures as well. Check out the first auction that had the pictures.

    Something doesn't seem right to me so I figured I'd just put out this FYI since I know the 06 Botcon Megatron is a pretty pricey figure.

    Someone selling a big ticket item like that with zero feedback should really be setting off the alarm bells anyway.

    Good catch though!

    Someone with 0 feedback used my pictures of Fort Max before, I reported to ebay, contacted the seller, but it still ran to the end...
