    LMFAO...good one noisemaze!

    And for the member asking what the big deal is??? Its the cheapest looking KO I've seen in a long time (especially the ORIGINAL part of the auction).

    It's not a KO!

    A few 1984-1986 bots were reissued in the early 90s in Europe in gold boxes that said CLASSIC or ORIGINAL on them. It's one of those, it's legit.

    Click the link below and scroll down til you see the pics...

    http://www.geocities.com/futuristgroup/veurolist.html

    And they are reasonably rare as well, even though that box is beat up. 200 Aussie dollars is probably a bit overpriced, but not stupidly.

    So yeah, it's not a scam and no-ones gonna get screwed.

    5 min research on the net > accusing sellers of flogging KOs when they ain't.

    what aussiehippy said..

    not a bad price but should be a bit lower due the condition of the box

    Gold box Prime in a fully english box is tough

    But this one is kinda pricey given condition of the box

    A mint boxed one, even opened would be worth this
