    the only thing they did was flip the gold shield over and flip the stickersheet over...same item other wise...look at the styrofoam and the angles where the top claws are ...identical product.

    I agree with you on both flips. But I'm more curious as to if they're just trying to scam people why go through the trouble just just making two changes? They might as well try and create a whole new environment. Just seems odd to me to go half-way on the scam.

    actually it is the same item - same seller - I know the seller - bought my grand maximus MIB, japanese fort max MIB, jap scorponok MIB. MIB Blue Bachus, jap trypticon MIB. I picked them up directly off him

    He has had a few multiples of all the big items (I think he had like 3 Grand Maxs at one stage) which he has accumulated over the years.

    He is selling for his wedding next year. He has dropped the price from AUD 2,800 to AUD 2,200. I would buy it but already got a BZ!

    Exactly. The sticker sheet might be different, but the fact that we can see the exact same minor imperfections is a pretty good giveaway as to this being the same item. Now, as far as whether or not this guy is actually a scammer or not, I really can't say. I mean for all I know, having multiple ebay accounts is allowed as long as different addys/names/whatever are used, and it's not like I've ever dealt with him.
