    the description says it all


    ITEM IS BRAND NEW AND SEALED!! At first glance, this sleek automobile seems to have all the details - right down to the bucket seats, dash controls and stick shift. A twist here, a turn there and you'll find this RSX vehicle changes into an amazing robot machine! The cars engine easily removes to become a laser pistol and PROWLs nightstick hand weapon is sure to keep predators at bay. PROWL figure changes from robot to highway patrol vehicle and back again!

    They have gone from $10.99 - $29.99 - $39.99 price keeps going up !
    Notice description is for PROWL.

    A little to shifty for my money, but $10.99 I woulda' taken a chance.....but once again, U.S. seller feels the need to charge an extra $10.00 on top of actual shipping to Canada......at least thats normal.

    His feedback percentage is a little on the low side. I dont know if he's a scammer but his feedback numbers over the last year aren't bad at all. For $10 I would've taken the chance too.

    O well looks like they're all gone. He had the last batch at $39.99 and then drop the price back down to $29.99.

    Good price for Mirage, who normally goes for $45+.

    I picked one up for 29.99. Wish I had noticed them when they were 10.99, but still better than the price I see them go for normally. The description in his auctions was copy/pasted directly from Toys R Us's page. So I assume he bought them all out this morning.

    I'm assuming hes the guy who bought all the ones on Toysrus.com this morning. They were 5 dollars each, and sold out immediately.

    Yeah, I picked up the 20th Anniversary Optimus for 22.50, way better than the 89.99 my local TRU is still charging.

    I've noticed a ton of scammers with "too good to be true" BIN's the last few weeks, but especially the last couple days. Better safe than sorry with these IMO.

    Alt Mirage has been on there since it was supposed to come out in the wave with Ravage and Rumble. It hasn't been available for a long time...they just never removed it from the site. A lot of the stuff that was on that list today had been unavailable for quite some time.

    No, there were actually some for sale this morning. Along with the Re-Issue Soundwaves. I had one in my shopping cart with my 20th Anniversary Prime but they sold out before I could buy it. And the seller has an established record as a toy seller, and has a decent enough rating to have Paypal buyer protection, and they have like, 100 other auctions up, I can't imagine they'd jeopardize their selling of that stuff. So if they screw us, we can all file a claim through Paypal and get our money back.

    edit: They also still have 3 up for sale with no buyout prices, so I don't think they're going to be getting a quick buck on those with a 6 day timer left on them.

    Yea these are most likely definitely from the toys R us sale. I hate how their shopping cart works, I had 3x House of M giftsets in my shopping cart. Checked overall and there were 60 in stock. I shop around for 5 minutes, then try to checkout, and they tell me giftsets have soldout. WTF

    He or she is making a lot of profit. Since TRU.com had them for $5.
