    the seller removed the chinese sticker on the box flap. If you look at the back of the box, white text is supposed to run completely under the tech spec ... it's cut off with a black bar, another dead give away.

    The seller even did this ...

    and stopped short of where the black box starts ... that's low.

    I have a feeling he also AFA'ed a KO set of tapes.

    this is a KO for sure too ...

    once again, the white text doesn't run completely under the tech spec ... it only goes half way, then is cut off with the black bar.


    and I read somewhere that his is a KO too ...

    :lol  "TFW ko guy"

    Not a problem, I'd hate for anyone here to get scammed. If it's a KO, say it and no big deal ... the customer knows what they're getting. In cases like this, he's pawing this garbage as if it were real.



    oh, the Soundwave is a confirmed fake.

    I'm fed up with dishonest sellers. I called him out on all the TF auctions and got this ..

    "Oh Really? It's AFA graded, if it was fake, they would spot the fakes and not grade my item. Tell it to the professionals as they detect the fakes. They authenticate each item. "


    :rolleyes:

    Someone should email AFA and direct them to that site. This is getting out of hand.

    I'll have to check this. I have a MIB Cyclonus and I'll see how the white text goes and let you know.
