    I think this one's a vintage KO, could be wrong though?

    I asked the guy "Why do you start with a picture of an actual boxed battle Gaia and then have a bunch of pics of a crappy knock off? Which one are you selling?"

    He replied with:

    "I did post that pic to show everybody the set. The pic inside it is from the same set, just the different colors, and it not crappy knock off it is a great set, if you are not interested don`t bother, somebody also will love it, THAT IS WHY I DO HAVE OFFERS AND SO COUPLE OF PEOPLE THAT IS WILLING TO PAY FOR IT RIGHT NOW, BUT I`M DOING AUCTION..... So please dont e-mail me anymore texting crappy word ! I`ll be blocking you from my ebay thanks!!!"

    Idiot lying dirtbag.

    Oh good lord, if you need a warning to know that this ain't legit, you may want to start collecting something else.

    I have one of those KO versions. The actaul Knock Off is a "Robot Terminators '6 in 1 combiner robot'" (Blatant lie when he only has 5 robtos to him, even in the original)
    It's undersized and of poor quality.

    So just thowing that out there. And I think I've said enough to back up that that IS DEFINATLY FAKE. Although we knew that already.

    Someone ought to report this guy for trying to sell 'mis-leading' product. :mad

    That first pic of a REAL Battle Gaia is just there because the seller is hoping that someone will see it and click BIN without seeing the pics of what you REALLY get

    I was going to post this myself, had a good laugh at it earlier! It's a crap quality dollar store KO of Valdigus/Baldigus, it's the wrong colours for Gaia, Blast Off's similar, the others are nowhere near! :D 

    There is a vintage Korean KO of Gaia that's in the correct colours, it's pretty good quality, but this sure as hell isn't it. I've got the Korean one but am on my phone so can't post pics of it, there is one on eBay though:

    http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewitem?itemId=220654595904&index=6&nav=SEARCH&nid=40551144352

    Overpriced though, I got mine from a boardmember a few years ago for $50.

    First picture, original Battle Gaia set disappear. Its really funny how someone tries to sell this cheap crap.

    I have no problem with than, I recognize something strange, so why shouldnt I warning others? Maybe someone watch only first picture.

    Well, a grand is still a lot of money, I would hope someone would still do a little research before hitting the bin. And the first pic of the real battle gaia was never up. It wasn't a personal attack on you, just an observation.

    Pretty much. The red faux decepticon emblem on not-blastoff and the faux emblem on the chest shield pretty much gives this away as a KO. I didn't even bother e-mailing the jerk. I just reported the item.

    Yeah? Really......

    Dunno about the 'Onslaught' but those exact same limb figures were selling over here in the pound shop in two-packs for £1 each. So the limbs themselves would be worth 50p or less each.

    Terrible the shit some people try and pull.
