    Does this auction look a little fishy to anyone but me? I had my eye on one that just ended and now another comes up almost exactly the same but with different pics. If this auction belongs to any member here (and sees this) please let me know what the story is. I get a little worried when someone rips off another auction format like this.

    Yeah, that does look more than a little suspicious.

    I don't get it; they're two different sellers and from the pics I can see there are a lot of different figures between the lots... I mean one of them has way more cassettes then the other and one of them even has a BM Nightscream.

    Maybe I'm just a N00b or something, but what exactly makes these two auctions suspect?

    One of the sellers just borrowed the others descriptons and style. People do that all the time on ebay.
