    Erm..SO ur saying that that picture is edited to just a different shade is it? I'm still trying to figure out if it's really a custom of just a 'photoshopped' picture. Even the reflection in the base is blue!

    I saw it! Hahaha!

    "I found this rock on the back alley of my house. It was digged in mud. I washed it and I found out that it's polished. When you look at it it's slighty unusual and shiny.
    This rock has no black magic on it, or voodoo. It's just a simple ordinary rock.

    Bid as much as you like.
    "

    Hahahahah!!! He's so funny! WOnder how much that'll go for.

    Here is frenzy_rumble's original pic:

    Here is the pic in the auction listed:

    It's the same pose, same custom details, everything. Either the guy did one just like FR and was too lazy to post his own pics, or it's a scam.

    Darn, I might start selling my empty bottles of paint if his correction fluid hits at least 10 bucks :p

    I reported it, see if ebay does anything. If they don't I'll report the auction to flickr/yahoo and see if I can sue him/her ;) 

    this is the 2nd auction jacking my pics, getting tired of it, and don't want to resort to throwing a tacky watermark across the middle of my custom's pics

    Zero feedback, selling junk and that picture is F_R's work, the reflection is the same, I think he just messed with the colour in gimp or photoshop. Clearly having a laugh.

    Now I'm confused as regard his intentions, is he just bored? Or does he intend to fool anyone?

    A watermark might not be ideal, but with such high end work it may be necessary.

    taken care of. From what I am told the "0" feedback, combined with his other items for sale, combined with taking a pic from my auction results in a closed account. Spoke to someone from ebay on the phone just now, he'll be taken care of by end of day ;)

    Knowing that it's going away, I feel like bidding on it just to get his hopes hopes up only to be crushed.

    Anybody want to get in an insane bidding war over it and make the guy think he's rich?

    Even thou you would hate to do it, it might be coming down to that F_R. But I'm sure with all your graphic skills and background you could come up with one the is wicked looking and effective. Still sucks thou.

    good idea, maybe my backdrop will have a logo on it or something, even blurred it will be my little nonchalant watermarking....

    And thanks to you guys for this lead, the pm, this thread, etc.

    LOL, let's do it. I just bid $1000 (which was his reserve, btw). Let's try to get it up to $10k before it's pulled, ha ha.

    ahahhaa

    this guy is funny

    I just sent him this
    hello. I must say, THIS IS THE BEST TRANSFORMERS I HAVE EVER SEEN.. It even looks better than the other custom Grimlock. (By the way, was kinda ugly. I like the blue yours has). I am just curious, what kind of paint you used?
