    So I found a Black Zarak on ebay yesterday morning, BIN of $300. Too good to be true, right? Boxed, complete and everything. But it smelled fishy. Item location was in California, seller had registered in Canada. The real catch was that he had 5 of them. Now they've all sold and he's listed 2 more. Link

    I asked Dragonclaw for his opinion on it and he thought it was suspicious too. The guy also had 5 supposedly MISB Victory Leos, even though the picture showed them open and missing the missiles.

    Just wanted to throw this out here in case anyone else sees it and is also suspicious.

    If you read the description, he says:

    I have had this with me for many years already, but never open it or played with it.

    ITEM IS IN MINT CONDITION WITH STICKERS APPLIED(STILL BRIGHT).


    So he must have some special skill since he claims it to be MISB, but he somehow applied the stickers.

    And check out his feedback. Looks like he created a couple of accounts and bought his own auctions(for a penny) to bump up his feedback. This is a scam, no doubt in my mind.

    If you look at his completed auctions he's already sold 6 Black Zaraks and 10 X-Box 360's (With 10 games for only $500) and a bunch of MISB Dinobot Sludges for $35. I'm betting everybody gets ripped off :(  What a slimeball.

    Some dude on Tfans got ripped buying the BZ. We laughed cause he was bragging about it and what he payed til someone told him that he should've paid attention. Plus that BZ pic is from ministry of toys.
