How do you know it's a fake?
The border on the window of the box and his stupid story about it, plus i've seen him try this shit before, he's just trying to sharpen his game.
Yes, he's been doing that for a while also with Devastator KO gifsets too. He gets his KO parts from sellers like yc-collection, doufaceb and so on....
I just emailed him to let him know his name is all over the place as a Fraud.
EDIT: I also contacted ebay to let them know about his fraudulent ebay listings.
Ya the box might be fake but unless they have started KO's of the metal plate version that is a KO box with a real prime. He states that the original box was trashed after years of storage and he picked this one up off ebay a while ago. I just looked over his auctions and while some could say they are a bit high he does (for the most part) list everything as it should be.
I agree with bandron; AFAIK there isn't a KO of the metal panel trailer version. Plus, he does indeed state in the auction text that the original box was trashed. Perhaps he should have specified that the box was a KO one (it's quite possible, however, that he doesn't actually know that it is), but other than that I would be inclined to think that it's legit.
Yes the toy seems original. However he knows it's a fake box. As mentioned, is not the fisrt time that seller has been reported here. I remember him very well: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=145956
From time to time he uses original toys with KO boxes or fake accesories/stickers. It's misleading because it doesn't say the box it's fake, doesn't say it's original either. Same disgusting tactic as yc-collection.
He does state it's a KO box now.
I'd bet a 100 bucks that the only "original" part in that auction is the trailer. Everything thing else is a knock off. This seller is a douche and needs to get his ass kicked off eBay.
I wouldn't be so quick to say that. I am looking at my metal plate prime and as far as I can tell all the parts are spot on for an example of a g1 metal plate variant. I cannot be %100 sure, not without seeing it first hand, but if it is KO parts he did a real good job getting them all matched color wise.
Good grief, I didn't expect the disease to spread to humble Belgium. Here's another bloke selling the same KO locally: http://cgi.benl.ebay.be/TRANSFORMER...2707749QQihZ005QQcategoryZ17017QQcmdZViewItem
That's not a knockoff. That's Hasbro's European reissue from about 5 years ago.
Oops. In that case, I probably shouldn't have tipped off the cops. And told them he was holding a woman hostage.
