    This crap drives me crazy, and I'll send them a message saying your listing is inaccurate and they respond angrily. I think Ebay auctions need to have comments involved. If I even wanted those KO's at their actual value, the bidding gets clouded by people that think it's real and just think it's supposed to be worth that much. These KO's end up selling for over $100 and sometimes hundreds!

    Where are you ebay police? oh yeah you don't exist >X-P

    Response from seller of Starscream:
    I know that is not a takara toy but still I did not know is brand so I presume that was diaclone so thanks for the update but yes the fists are blue the picture is not clear but they are blue.

    Those fists sure look black to me.

    Yeah I told him it is still a great condition for that knock off but it is NOT A DIACLONE it's Kingdam6! I've never seen a kingdam 6 with stickers unapplied though

    The guy selling Grimlock also has WST "Complete w/Box & Bubble Insert", somewhat suggesting the packaging is authentic. He likely knows what he's doing with the misleading titles and descriptions.

    Yeah I saw these auctions. Definitely misleading. The only indication of them being KOs, which the seller is for sure aware of, is that he identifies them as made in Taiwan in the auction details. If he'd just add in a clear line at the start of the description that these are vintage bootlegs of the diaclones then I wouldn't have a problem with the description otherwise but since he knows and purposely keeps that info out of it it is definitely sketchy and frustrating.

    really annoying because sometimes people want the KO! Like me! The price will skyrocket because someone trying to dabble into the early TF's might think it's genuine and go nuts

    I've always found that guy who listed the kingdam starscream to be sketchy, he sells a lot of junk lots - i've emailed him a few times for info on them and have received less than satisfactory answers, could be that he's French and can't really understand, or it could be that that he's French and is a douche-bag... naaa just kidding. ;-)
