    I'd have to say it's fake. I see some exposed red, particulary right behind the smokestack on the passenger side.

    Then again, it could be an early mock-up too. They've been known to repaint existing figures for mock-up purposes before.

    Yeah, that was my impression as well. Certainly wasn't going to pay the $1500 asking price even if it had been real.

    I don't know a massive amount about LDs but don't they usually plate ALL of it in Chrome? ie, even the smokestacks?

    pretty cool concept. I might just make a limit of 10 myself and gold paint them and call them collector's items.

    Honestly, I don't want it for $30, much less $1500, so if anyone DOES want it, let me know and I can hook you up with the seller who's got it. I just posted here since we hadn't seen it before.

    Yikes! Still, not something I'd want, but that's one blinged out Movie Prime.

    Like a few have said already, I'm pretty sure this is a testshot of a LD Voyager Prime. Too bad they didn't take the opportunity to do something like put him in Black Fire Convoy's colors. I think the mold would look good in Black, Red, and Gold.

    Well, than I guess I'll ask around if anyone's interested. a KO or fake would be weird, this seller doesn't usually deal with such things, everything I've ever been offered from him has been legit, I just wanted to double check here.

    Eh, I think I'd feel dirty if I did. I'm not in this for the money.

    Hmm, I'm not so sure on it's authenticity personally. There any other documented LD 'protos' that looked like gold chromed normal versions without the usual gold plastic? I can't recall any...

    Looks too pimped out for Prime IMO.
