    I tried, but good old eBay doesn't seem to have an appropriate category in their ridiculous reporting system. So I contacted the legit seller instead, since there IS a category they can use to report it as ripping off his pictures and such.

    It's there, just badly categorized.

    go to "Copy of your listing" --> "Someone copied text or pictures from another web site or Ebay user."

    Given the choice of five pictures from the legitimate auction, it's funny that the scam seller chose the BACK of the box for his one. I see someone's already bid; I hope Ebay cancels the item quick.

    Buyers beware of this Starscream scam!

    This auction ended last night:
    1984 Starscream AFA 80 MISB Transformers G1 80/85/90 - eBay (item 170302410740 end time Feb-17-09 19:52:12 PST)

    This auction was listed immediately afterward:
    transformers g1 starscream pre rub afa 80 - eBay (item 260364285070 end time Feb-22-09 19:59:19 PST)

    The winner with 1 feedback is now selling the Starscream. Both sellers are from SF CA. You can always spot a copied picture, because the picture will be very small. Something's not right here!

    Reported - thanks.

    That's got to be pretty funny - look at an auction and see YOUR AFA number. "Hmm.... I think I still own this."

    A small picture doesn't mean a fake.

    I use iSale to list, cause I can list 100 times faster than using eBay's service. However, the downside is, I get small pictures on my auctions because of eBay's interface. My shits legit.

    If you are a seller, best way to protect yourself is putting your logo in the picture, or seller name.

    Actually, I recognized the original picture from Brian's Toys. Then I noticed the Seaspray had the same subgrades as mine. Then it hit me.....that's mine! I checked the AFA serial number to confirm, and sure enough it was mine. This is why I don't give out AFA serial numbers in my ebay auctions. After the buyer pays, I will send them the AFA serial numbers if requested.

    Their ebay username says it all!

    The picture they used was from Brian's Toys. You can always tell a legit Da Last 2 Walk ebay auction because I always use the same wooden table with wooden background!

    Chill out, I was not accusing you of being a scammer!

    The picture I was referring too was much smaller than your pictures. The picture I was referring too was very small because the scammer copied & pasted the gallery picture from the original auction.
