    Seller's using an image from senuseret72. If you were going to nick someone's else's pic, a rare prototype probably isn't the one to use.

    Fake auction:

    SCORPONOK TRANSFORMERS PERFETTO!!!!!! on eBay, also, Transformers, Robots, Giocattoli e Modellismo (end time 23-Feb-09 19:42:12 GMT)

    senuseret72:

    Rare vintage Gen1 G1 Scorponok Transformers Prototype on eBay, also Transformers, Transformers Robots, Action Figures, Toys Hobbies (end time 22-Feb-09 18:09:06 GMT)

    Gee (1) Willigans! It's a Scorpy scam Scooby :)

    So. I got this back from ebay:
    HOW FUCKING PATHETIC.
    So don't waste your time reporting it; eBay don't give a fuck. Go straight to the seller.

    I've seen that before, forgot about it this time, deleted ebay's message as I thought it would be the 'Thank you...........we'll look into it within 24 hours etc.' one. I had reported it but forgot to email senuseret, bugger.

    Well done that man.
