    Ebay:

    Take a look at all his pictures. The last picture with the figures out of package the box no longer has the price tag on it. Also the corners of the box seem to be perfectly fine. In the other pictures they are clearly damaged. A good example of this is the Hasbro logo on the bottom left. It is cut across the logo upclose but in the far away picture it looks perfectly intact. This auction possibly has two different Devastators in it making it a possible fraud.

    His other Gucci watch auction doesn't seem very legit either...

    Since a week repro giftset boxes of Devastator are floating around on eBay. So you have to be careful on what you buy. Usually the repro boxes aren't as glossy as the vintage ones. There's nothing wrong with repro boxes, as long as the seller states it in his auction.
