    neither the buyer or seller is and idiot autovolt. this is something that you would have to have knowledge about to spot, or you'd look right past it.

    whoever won that auction, good job.

    i love maz, he's been a good pal since the alt.toys.transformers days, him and fred have tremendous variant knowledge.

    but from my experience, as soon as one of these super-rare variants are documented and published online, it makes it easier for people to know what to look for and more of these "i've only seen one" things start to turn up. i remember when there was this brazilian guy who seemed to be the ONLY one to have any estrela minicars, just yesterday i saw an ebay seller w/ a picture of a whole bunch of them MOSC. and i also remember when the joustras were groundbreaking news.

    good eye doubleclouder, looks like the mexican bluestreak/smokescreen variant also saw a european release

    I agree that when something is known it is easier to find, but it is still rare. Still some items just don't turn up very offen. I have been looking for a Mexican Prowl for a while now, and they turn up every now and then, but not as often as say a Mexican Skywarp. I personally think it is easier to see the differences on Prowl than on Skywarp. Still I think the figure is pretty rare and have been looking for one since Fred posted it on line a few years ago.

    Same here. I've been looking for this variation, and most of the mexican variations.

    OH well, I guess that is why it's a never ending obsession!!!!

    skywarp has that purple nosecone, that for me is easy,I always look for it. smokescreen's colors just blend in the bluestreak. guess if your looking for it, it does make it way more easy.
