    Bloody stupid Ebay. I'm trying to report the listing to save someone being conned, and it won't let me because there isn't a category for it! :banghead: 

    [edit] Found a way. It's reported. Just hope it was in time... [/edit]

    [edit2] Except it probably wasn't since they'll apparently investigate "usually within 72 hours". [/edit2]

    It says 1984, Arcee never had a G1 toy and even if she did it wouldn't have been out in 84. It's a definite KO and it's sad it has so many bids.

    I know, I had a lot of trouble as there wasn't a suitable category under Bootlegs. I selected "Fradulent Listing" and then "Suspect a listing is fraudulent; didn't bid".

    *facepalms* Wow...you're missing the obvious here.

    1.) Arcee wasn't available as a toy in 1984, this is true.
    2.) Arcee never had a G1 toy, this is also true.
    3.) It's ENERGON Arcee, repacked in a CUSTOM box, this is true.
    4.) We have no idea whether or not the figure is a bootleg, it could be a real Energon Omni-Con/Basic Class Arcee figure in a smaller box, this is also true.

    Bottom line is, the auction's a fraud, the guy's been reported, and the figure's legit (as far as it being Arcee, and from Energon.) and someone's dumb enough to pay that price, so what can you do?

    BTW...one other reason it could be a legit Arcee figure, and not a bootleg (and no, I'm not talking about the packaging, that's an obvious fake)...she's a dime a dozen in any Dollar General or Family Dollar store.

    Last I checked both stores, they have at least 3-5 of her, Brushguard. one of the Superion combiner limbs, etc.

    It's not like she's hard to find, so with that in mind, there's no reason to say she's a bootleg.

    Any way you slice it it's still a rip off. He's lying to Say it's a G1 figure of Arcee when it is not. Still deserves to be reported.
