    I'm not knocking his price. I actually just thought a lot of people here were looking for one.

    Yikes, now can someone refresh my memory. Didn't the club say "Don't sell Sideswipe on ebay or else"?:confused: .

    LMFAO!!! I find it funny, every time he gets a new holy grail, it seems to end up on ebay for stupid money, you can easily get one on yahoo jpn for less than a forth of that price.

    Holy! Am I seeing things here? :jawdropper: 

    Didn't they say that Customization Class pieces weren't allowed to be sold on eBay? I thought I read something from the last G2 Sideswipe thread, about Hasbro not wanting these to be made for resale else they might just drop the whole Customization Class act together, no? :sly2: 

    On the auction, its definitely a nice piece. More POWER to the Buyer who's gonna buy it.

    you cant not make someone sell something on ebay. you went and paid for the class, you have every right to. i would have taken the class just to get one and sell it.

    and yes malach ra, i too have seen them end around 400 on yahoo japan.

    As for selling it on ebay: I bought it from another collector and can do what I want with it. I am under no contract or agreement with FunPub. It is not stolen property and they have no further rights to it. End of story.

    Finally, to those truly interested in the piece. I priced it a bit high on purpose. It draws attention in the search for the term "botcon" when sorted high to low. I am more than willing to negotiate, and it will ship via Priority Insured delivery within 24 hours of payment.

    What's the difference? Serious question here, not slamming anyone just really really curious.

    I forgot to mention, I can make a better deal on the boards due to the lack of ebay fees here.

    Thanks to some who don't bother to ask me any questions, it was lost on some people that I only priced this at $1500 to get it near the top of "botcon" search results. I have lowered it to what I feel it is worth to me, revealing the amount I was willing to negotiate down to.

    Probably nothing. If the part trees are the same it's probably the same mold, so it would likely be made by the same people.

    I can't imagine counterfeiters exactly copying a whole part tree.

    Thread cleaned up. Seriously, there's no need for people to start over reacting and flipping out. If you can't talk civilly, then you will be banned from the thread and I will hand out infractions.

    The listing has been converted to an auction style format and will reappear at 8:00 PM Central tonight. I am ready to sell this, there is something available to me that I want much more. It will be a one day listing.

    As for spotting fakes: the fakes never include the sticker sheet. I have also been informed that the shade of red is a bit off on the fakes. As for plastic quality, I have no idea. That is the only info I have.

    @ bradforj: Thanks for sharing those information.

    And this had to come when I'm spent for the month. :cry 

    All the best for the sale though.
