    I found this on ebay

    It comes with a cool story of how he found it and bought it from an old guy. The story seems like a fantasy. I figure I would ask some people who know is this guy real or fake?

    I say it's a fake and he knows it.

    The auction seems to be giving the impression that he doesn't know a great deal about TF's. ("The box says Together They Form The Mighty Devastator.")
    But if you look at his feedback he recently sold a bunch of Alts. And further back in his feedback there are references to TF's.

    Fake (no grey border to the left of devastator is a dead giveaway) - and its over $200 !!!!!

    I agree with Oddsey - this guy's story is BS.

    People need to give their heads a shake and repeat to themselves: "if its too good to be true, then it probably is".

    yeah, I just saw the gray border and noticed the difference between the two. Wow, that is a good repro box though if someone were looking for a nice KO box to store their G1 toys in. BTW, I wonder if the contents are real or KOs?

    If the box is a KO, then the toys inside are also KOs.

    I don't mind the "reproductions" per se - it's the douchebags that try to pass them off as originals that really tick me off.

    Is there some way to report this jerk to ebay?

    I do not know guys, it looks like the KO, but the picture is too small and blurry to judge from there, the guy has 100% positive, and franlky I do not think he will risk his reputation with this.

    I'm glad to see you made it past the title.

    This is a KO!

    The pictures are fine enough for me to tell that this is a KO.

    I guess some people will never learn.....That is exactly why a person with 100% feedback scams a dumbass.....because they think that their 100% feedback = not a crook.

    If anybody else is foolish enough to doubt me, take a look at this:

    Deleted your post, huh.....Not man enough to say something to me?

    I know enough not to buy a KO by reading the title only and not the description!

    I don't claim to know everything, but I do claim to know a KO when I see one.

    You have the audacity to call me a scammer, when I've dedicated 2 threads on this site to help my fellow Transformer collectors not get scammed? Maybe you need to look at my "bogus" links so you can learn something! I appreciate the work/information that MG & e3nine put into those links.

    BTW, I wasn't referring to you as a dumbass, if it came across that way.

    If this worries you you need to get in your own business buddy.

    Next time YOU pay attention to what you read. I SAID IT LOKS LIKE THE KO, do you think You are the only one in the world who knows how to tell the differences, dude You have no Idea....buddy I was already collecting when you were breaking your TFs playing with your school friends.

    This statement proves what I already feared You are, nothing but a jerk who wants to prove is always right.

    I deleted the message because I did not want to start a fire that was pointless, but just for you to know it, I do not fear of letting guys like you know what i think of them, here or ANYWHERE.

    Trust me, you do NOT worry me.



    Why did you leave out the important part that I read....."but the picture is too small and blurry to judge from there, the guy has 100% positive, and franlky I do not think he will risk his reputation with this."

    There are many others that can spot a KO, you're just not one of them.

    Really, I started collecting in 1984.

    Here's my collection:

    Let's see yours.

    I looked it over and reported him. I let him know that I was understanding that he may not understand TFs and finding 1 in a Locked Chest from a Garage sale but after looking through his feedback and haveing sold numorus TFs befor sends TF Collectors a Red Flag. I mean really how often do you come accross a minty box of G1 Devastator.
