    So what's with the handful of sellers selling the brand new clear KO Optimus Prime as 'one of 500 in a very limited reissue run, these are the very last stock, get them before they're gone', etc.?

    One guy had them described as such last week, I messaged him and he said he was under the impression they were a limited 500-piece run done by Hasbro a few years ago.

    Now liqdeal, a very high volume and in-the-know seller has an auction with the same descriptions posted and a $400 BIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????

    Yes, limited and almost gone, that's why he only has 12 of them for sale in the auction:

    I'm surprized he is trying to pull that bull$ht as he must obviously know what's going on and his $400 price is even more over the top than the other scammers.

    My message to him:
    "So you must know, as you're a major Transformers seller including ko/bootlegs, that this is a brand new KO that is not limited in production #s at all, is an unofficial reproduction, not a reissue, and is readily available on the secondary market?
    I figure you must know, but your $400 price tag and auction description are just confusing.

    I contacted another seller doing this this week, they claimed to think it was an authentic Hasbro product from a limited run years back."

    It's called capitalism.

    The seller sets the price, it's up to the buyer to decide if it's worth it.

    But if the seller sets up the auction description such that it is misleading then the seller is unfairly hampering the buyer's ability to make a clear decision.

    looks cool but if real lunchtimes had breaking issues do to the clear plastic then these just might end up being bust from the factory.
