    So, what proves that is is a fake? The lack of an Autobot insignia on each shoulder? Anything else? I know I must be missing something else.

    EDIT: Chrome differences around the elbow joint? I don't think the original had chrome there, just colored plastic.

    I gathered as much, based on the thread title. I was more looking for the differences between the genuine article and this fake. Did my earlier post hit on some of them?

    Amusing Seller.

    Doesn't even bother knowing/getting his facts right before he churned out a project like this. :lol

    His response to me after showing him tf@tm's page on the fake was that he bought it from ebay from a well respected member in the tf community and that it is a legit item because it was in a sealed takara box.....sigh.

    Sounds like an uneducated idiot (if his story is true). The sad part is, though, someone might fall for his listing. Darn KOLDs.
