    the autobot symbol is all gumby looking and the flames are all fucked up and crooked on the bottom right of the gumby looking autobot symbol....looks like a drunk painted it.



    plus the black at the bottom of the hood looks wierd like it was painted on or maybe magic permanent marker ?

    It's wierd that he has all the proper paperwork and the weapon looks correct

    Also the windscreen would be hard to pull off as well

    Seriously? He's passing this off as authentic?

    EDIT: He admits to painting the hood in the Q&A section.

    Is it just me or anyone else noticed that the car seemed painted as well? :sly2: 

    Evident enough when you look at the picture with the "painted" flame, the black finishing looks too glossy. :redface2:

    Ebay:
    Looking at all the pictures closely, it does look like an authentic Botcon Rodimus, albeit with a fucked up hood (the other flame applications and the rear Autobot symbol look correct). Going over his question/answer session in ebay it looks like he tried to clear coat it and really fucked it up big time.

    edit: It looks like the product he used to clear coat it cracked and destroyed the decal. He then tried to repaint it by hand. What I don't like is how he tried to pass it off as new until this was brought up. I wonder if the 2 bidders on this item know about this?

    If this is truly authentic, it's a damn shame. It's not worth it now.

    Can't believe that this messed up Rodimus sold for what it did. Hope the high bidder knew what they were getting. Oh well to each there own I guess.

    I've seen the instructions and bio alone sell for $50. This is one of those figures that got stupid expensive... So even in that fucked up condition, of course it's worth something. I was a little shocked to see it go for -that- much, but I was just as shocked when the mint ones started to break the $200 mark.
