    I just felt that the Seller should, perhaps, disassemble Fort Max & sell him part by part (eg: Left Arm, Right Arm etc.) & take pictures of INDIVIDUAL body parts, NOT showing the whole Bot. :redface2:

    reported for fraud.

    this idiot is going to have people bidding on this auction thinking they are getting what is pictured...a complete transformer...not parts as he has in his description.

    pictures do not match item description=Fraud listing in my book

    Ebay:
    People used to sell trading cards like that too. They would throw a bunch cards in a lot together, and let the high bidder choose any x amount of cards from said lot. Worked ok back when ppl were for the most part normal and honest but, yeah.. Gotta be stupid to try and pull an auction like this now a days. Id almost be tempted to bid though, to buy the main body section <.<. 110s just bit outta there for me though ..

    Maybe not so much dumb as it is VERY misleading, however I would say the seller seems uneducated about Transformers and should have at least done some research before listing.

    obviously ebay does not give a crap...this shit is still listed...

    i hope someone bids..gets screwed...then opens a complaint about that seller...
    that would atleast maybe make him think twice before pulling shady crap like this...

    If that was the cheapest anyone would Sell spike on his own, then sure I would buy it if it were listed seperately.

    But damn, this seller really must be lazy to not take other pictures. Either sell the whole damn thing or dismantle it and sell the parts, not both.
