    Fake Rodimus Prototype

    Fake Bumblebee Prototype

    Now this is pushing stupidity. eBay user 41514 (yes, that's his name there) is selling these Reprolabel-upgraded G1 figures as "anime" prototypes, giving Galvatron's rerelease as example of the first in a line of many... Easy to tell those are Hasbro reissues with Reprolabel stickers applied, don't know if he or his supplier is trying to get away with the scam, regardless be careful buying from him

    If I were the people running reprolabels, I'd be a bit upset ...

    I even e-mailed the guy and he tried to say that Hasbro confiscated all Reprolabels product and will be putting them out officially :stick:  He knows full well it's a scam.

    I hate people passing things off as rare when they know full well that it's not. Stupid E-Bayers.

    Hehe, now this I find funny.

    First a little story: I saw this seller selling a GI Joe Night Force Shockwave figure a while back that had the wrong waist piece. I looked at his feedback and found an auction link where he happened to purchase this exact figure earlier on eBay. The original auction clearly stated the wrong waist and said the weapons were customed. The feedback he left the seller showed his dissatisfaction with what he thought was a regular, uncustomed figure.

    In 41514's auction for Shockwave, he neglected to state any of the problems with the figure and played dumb, saying he didn't know anything about GI Joes. He's despicable. He knows what he's doing and blatantly tries to rip people off. This is the type of seller that needs to be booted from eBay. :thumbdown
