    You may be surprised. I was concerned about getting a lighter colored version. However, in hand, it isn't what I would consider to be a light blue.

    Yeah, maybe. I was looking carefully at your car mode pics from yesterday, and maybe the lighter blue just looks off from the lighting. Then again your bot mode pics look better. I'm just more of a toy > toon guy. BTW, which product has the matching light blue mask?

    Dark blue Sphinx head comes with MMC Terraegis (Trailbreaker); Light blue Sphinx head comes with MMC Artifex (Hoist). I'm looking to trade my dark blue one for a light blue one. Although, editing these pics from The Chosen Prime, the dark blue head doesn't look bad with light blue Sphinx. Kind of unique. The edited pic is the last one.

    Anything more than a $5-10 discount compared to other sellers gets my spidey sense tingling.

    There's someone who got burned on an eBay auction for a Meteor, and the tip off was a too-sweet price.

    If it's too good to be true, it probably is.

    Ebay:
    When you go after low priced figures on eBay you might just as well just light your money on fire yourself and skip the middle man. At this point, my sympathy for people who still buy on eBay at UNREALISTIC low prices is pretty much gone...

    All I can say is, I didn't actually buy it. Just noticed it and came here to see if it was indeed a scam. I don't consider myself an expert. I don't buy on ebay much. My instincts told me it was no good. I see my instincts were right.

    It just sucks how shady things are on ebay, some dont have the usual tell tale scam signs like all feedback being private, never selling transformers till recently, etc. Ive seen a few that outside of the low price they look legit feedback wise.
