    Congratulations, good find.

    And for $10, not like you're taking a huge risk for a potentially solid payoff.

    Keep us posted as to what shows up... the pic is really hard to see anything. But for $10... why not?

    I enlarged the picture. And judging by the colours and the shape of the chest, it's Spike alright. And like squirrelcar said, for $20 total it's not like you're losing a lot either way. Good find indeed, man!

    yeah I just paid and I'll post back in this thread when/if I get it. At least it's from within my country so I should know soonish. I know it's crazy but I've seen Spikes sell for $70-150 in the last couple of weeks. Now if I can just find some of the Japanese Headmaster bonus heads for $30! (kidding)

    Is there any way to identify whether the repro one or not once I have it in hand?

    The seller said 'not a kit, original' in the auction, and did have other authentic TFs for sale, but it did cost $10...I'm hoping the ability to score it for super cheap was related to the new seller, located in Canada, poorly identified (i.e. no 'transformers' in title) and tiny pic rather than other factors but I'd rather know the truth than pretend it's real if it's not.

    Looks like TGTBT might have just kicked in.

    Seller is no longer a registered user with ebay.

    My only glimpse of hope is that the seller still was receiving +ive feedbacks for selling right up until 2 days before he became 'no longer a registered user'. I've just tried emailing so we'll see what happens but...

    TGTBT?

    Sucks about the seller. Although tfctoy had the same thing happen, and I've got a working tracking number from him for my item now, so it might not be horrible.

    hehe, Too Good To Be True.

    Yeah, it's not like the seller ripped off the 5-8 people who received their items just before the 'not a registered user' thing kicked in. Some of those auctions were from ones that ended a couple of days after mine though...
