    A size comparison would be nice, I'm curious as to see how big it is... but those colors aren't TOO bad, actually. Could do without the red stripes on the cab though.

    I'm not sure anything has ever screamed "REPAINT ME!!!" more loudly than that.

    yeah, G2 was full of funked up colours, thats why the combiners looked so weird, its hard to even look at a robot made up of about 17 clashing colours.

    They looked so bad they had to restrain Tracks from running round screaming about 'Fashion disasters'.

    just gotta love sellers who wont take 0-feedback bidders.


    Its like me trying to get credit. No one will give me credit without a previous line fo credit. I DONT HAVE ANY.

    The point is. If people selling stuff won't take 0-feedback bidders. How are people like me with no feedback supposed to be able to get anything?

    This is true, but I, too, recenly adopted a "at least 10 pos. feedback comments needed to bid" stance due to the rising rash of deadbeat newbies. It's sad, but that's how it is sometimes....people with no feedback are often liabilities. Now, if you were to hypothetically contact me before the auction's end and talked with me about it, I might be more inclined to sell to you even if you had very little feedback. That shows character and desire.

    If it were in original Prime colors, or even its G2 colors, I wouldn't mind having one. But in those colors... I think I'm going to throw up.

    I saw the Big G2 Prime years ago. The colors have always put me off. Anyway, about eBay with Zero feedback, I agree with Triformis about contacting the seller. If you win, pay promptly. The other way would be to pay promptly with some "low cost" Buy-It-Now items. Once your feeback is 3 or 4 with 100% feedback you should be good to go.

    I really hope it's really that nice. I was actually hunting for a book reissue OPtimus when this popped up. Man I just couldn't resist. I've seen these go for over $200. So I figured why not? I've also heard there quality was as good as the normal ones. I'll post pics when I get him in.
