    I haven't seen one of these since they were spilling out of China a few years ago.

    G1 headmaster Scorponok original instruction booklet - eBay (item 260486627797 end time Oct-07-09 23:28:11 PDT)

    The most noticeable differences from an original are top-most and bottom-most font and the black box spacing around "Decepticon". Compare with either

    or
    http://www.cobraislandtoys.com/tf/1987/Scorponok.jpg

    Definitely not worth even the opening bid.

    Definitely. I'd suspect the people making these is the same company making the complete figures. When individual instructions surfaced years ago, Fort Max and some combiners instructions, like Superion & Devastator of course, were for sale.

    lol, nice detective work.

    still not a bad price for repro sets to compete the tiny-headed bad boy....just wish they guy said they were repros....hopefully it's at least printed on similar paper and not some crappy inkjet paper
