    take away the stickers, commission a set from reprolabels, and he's not so ugly. the price, though, there's no cure for that :(

    Sadly, what I'm selling it for is less than what I bought it for. I think I really got screwed on shipping.

    Ebay:
    $150 for a 100% plastic, badly colored, badly stickered KNOCKOFF...

    Somebody tell him to lay off the weed.

    Ooooohh n ow that would be a nice challenge for a repaint :)  Truthfully I would buy it at that price. Why don't you make it a "buy it now" and I'll bite. Been looking for one forever. It is more then what I wanted to pay but having to not look anymore would be worth it to me. Let me know.

    Whoa, wait a minute. Might Gaine is the guy selling it. He's trying to recoup his losses in it, not scalp. That's kinda low to say about him.

    Enigma2K2 have you seen the oversized prime or bruticus? You shouldn't comment unless you know what your talking about. These things are very hard to find.

    MG is a great and very fair seller. Please don't knock him or his reasons for pricing because usually he'll make it as cheep as he can.

    To be hounest this version of Defensor is a heck of alot rarer then the Oversized Brute and he alone goes for 100$+ for a knockoff because you cannot get these guys at this scale anywhere unless you do it yourself. (And trust me, reproduction is not only a bitch but a costly one at that)

    I'm surprised I'm seeing this peice again for lower then 300$.

    And the Quality isn't as bed as regular knockoffs from other companies. The plastic is actually really sturdy although the joints are loose. (Easily fixed as well with some clear nail pollish)

    Try doing searches online and at online auctions as well and you'll see how scarce it comes up. They really are hard to find...and you people will pay 80$+ on a Alt Nem.Prime because of it's release amount but trust me, Alt.Nem Prime has nothing on this beast.

    You had better apologize for that remark. you have no idea of that thing's actual rarity or value. if I had $150 I would not hesitate to drop it on that. I would love the chance to repaint it and modify parts to make it G1 accurate.

    He's right, it was pulled by Ebay because it had some sort of "Trademark violation". He probably knew because I posted about it on TFans.

    I considered removing all references to "Defensor" or "Transformers" and relisting it, but I decided to just save myself the effort and possible consequences and just sell it to directly to someone who expressed interest in buying it a month ago.

    As for why this auction was pulled wheras lots of other knockoff auctions don't get pulled, I'm not sure. Maybe it was because i clearly identified it as a knockoff in the title, wheras a lot of sellers just use "KO" or don't mention it's fake at all when they sell knockoffs. Maybe it's because it was a prominent auction in that I payed the $20 to get it at the top of the category. Or maybe someone at Hasbro made a request to have it taken down. I'm not really sure. Ebay's message to me was incredibly vague.

    So you sold it already? If that other person changes his mind I'll gladly take it. Just send me a PM. Thanks for the info.
