    Me thinks this will be the new fad for selling KOs. Just call them "customs" and hope eBay won't kill the auction. It is cool though.

    If you read the questions he's been asked, he had some other auctions taken down, contacted ebay, and they told him how to list them so they wouldn't get taken down again!

    I've seen these Primes before, they are pretty sweet, but $300 for a KO!

    I agree that this is a sweet figure!!!! I actually know a friend of his named Richimus that was the first one to do these custom Prime and Richimus has made me alot of custom prime such as if you all might remember the Motormaster Prime that was made!!!! I'm not sure if this guys work is as good as Richimus work but if it is then it is a good buy!!!! I will have to post pics of all the custom primes that my friend has made for me!!!! Right now what he is making for me is a Nemesis Prime off a G1 optimus prime it is going to me sweet!!!!

    so let me get this straight. the seller bought a huge load of the ko clear primes then is painting them with clear color paint that is normally used to paint canopys! LMFAO at people actually thinking these are real molded color clear plastic.
    report this fraud to ebay!!

    I don't think he could have made it any clearer that it is a "custom" Prime. Just reading the description tells you that. There is no fraud at all.

    I don't think there is any customization going on here, about a year ago I was talking to spirit of cybertron and he told me that the KO companys were making clear coloured primes, clear purple primes, clear blue primes, gold plated primes and silver plated primes.

    So I believe this guy is full of shit.

    Of course the fact that he used to sell KO primes as real doesn't help him much in the credibility dept.

    This guy just joined TFW and has a sales thread. He's claiming the figures are "legit" and "one-of-a-kind" when they're clearly some form of custom or KO.

    Anyone with the time and money could buy the figures, cast molds, and go through that whole proccess. I wouldn't really call it a "fraud" exactly, but its definately overpriced beyond belief (and the guy's tremendous ego doesn't make me wanna buy from him, either...)

    Likely because this thread and the items are about 2.5 months old.
