    Got my order for MP Megatron and Alt Rumble in today... except Rumble wasn't there, instead there was Swoop. Because it's boxed and looking in good shape aside from a few dings in some corners, I'm guessing this is the KO, but how can I be sure. Is there anything to look for while it's still sealed? I have no reason to open it, I already have Swoop.

    does it have the factory stickers applied, or even a rubsign? the KO doesnt have these.

    and if you werent supposed to get swoop, why not send it back? it's probably someone else's.

    Because this is from a store in Singapore... I honestly don't feel like paying to ship something when it's not even my fault that it ended up here... I'm a bastard that way.

    And I guess this is the KO then, I see no stickers.

    Call em up and say you never got your Rumble. See if they send you another.

    Honestly, there's like a million of those things around and they aren't selling because they are $100 a pop. They probably sent that on purpose to get rid of them. They screwed up and should get you what you paid for and if they desperately want their item back, they can pay shipping for their screwup.

    I'll buy you an alt Rumble and do a trade for the Swoop. I would even reimburse you for the shipping to get Swoop to me. I'd like to have one to open. Seriously, given the price those go for compared to the much cheaper and easier to find Rumble, you got a good deal.

    Well I would definitely be demanding a replacement Rumble from the seller.

    As for Swoop I would send it back only if he's willing to pay for all the costs, no reason you should have to pony up for his screw up.

    The seller is a store I have good experiences with, with the only exception they're a bit slow sometimes with their communication. I can live with that. I have e-mailed them about this, but do not yet have a reply.
    Things will depend a bit on how they reply, but if I'm ending up with this Swoop anyway, it will be up for trade or sale.

    Update for those interested.
    It definitely is the KO version.
    The store is shipping me a Rumble now, so I'l get that.
    I can now either buy the Swoop for a discounted price, or do the store a favour by sending it to another customer, in which case the shipping costs will be reimbursed in the form of a voucher for future purchases (which is ok since I will likely buy there again).
    I'm going to ask what the discounted price is. If it's good enough to make a bit of profit through sale or trade, I'll go for that, otherwise I'll just ask them where to send it.

    It's not the ebay seller Sharpteeth1 is it? I've dealt with him quite a bit, but he has a habit of sending the wrong thing and then asking me to mail it to someone else he sold it to.
