    This guy is a seasoned TF seller on Ebay. He knows TF's like the back of his hand. Look at these "vintage" TF's he's selling:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/vintage-gen1-soundwave-and-thundercracker_W0QQitemZ230147253377QQihZ013QQcategoryZ4696QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    http://cgi.ebay.com/vintage-gen1-trailbreaker-misb_W0QQitemZ230147251423QQihZ013QQcategoryZ4696QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    EDIT:

    After I e-mailed him, he changed the Trailbreaker title from Vintage, to E-hobby. He is atleast fixing it. I just got a message from him, and they were honest mistakes. He's not a scum bag afterall....he's human.

    I don't see anything wrong with the second one. The first says 'vintage' which is bad but the starting price is 5.00 and the picture very clearly tells otherwise (not trying to pass off a reissue in a KO box as vintage or whatever)

    Yeah - I don't see a scum bag... though I don't agree with the hype descriptions he's made at all. Pretty common fare on eBay.

    The second one is an E-hobby reissue, it's not vintage.

    He doesn't say the second auction is vintage, though.

    He just changed it because I sent him and e-mail about it. It did say vintage before.

    I'm watching that Trialbreaker one. Provided it doesn't get to over $50 I might bid.

    Opened but never transformed! My left buttcheek.

    I swore Ill nevar give my money to a guy who puts that in his descript.

    Only Transformed 1nce!! suuuuure. how you gonna open up a box, and NOT transform it. OK... If you open a transformer, and you dont transform it, youll have bad luck for a Jarr leap year.

    I agree. If anyone says it was opened and not transformed or say that it was opened for inspection, they are full of CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, that inspection crap should be flagged by eBay. With vintage video game systems and cool statues they pull that too.

    They had a sealed item, worth alot in that condition cause most of us open ours.
    Then, they open theirs cause they wanna, just like us.
    But then, they want that 'sealed item' money, so they lie.

    I saw one guy who actually had an AFA rejection notice on the bed in the background that stated his Milennium Falcon couldn't be graded because it was taped closed twice and they couldn't verify if it was resealed and he was selling a heap of G1s in sealed boxes, individually. Makes ya wonder.

    not cool, forked-tongue ebayers, not cool.
