I'm tired of browsing eBay listings and seeing knock offs being listed as "re-issued". There is a big difference between Hasbro (or Takara) doing a re-issue and some Chinese knock off. Knock offs are against eBay selling policy. I plan on reporting these items to eBay as I see them. I encourage you to do the same. For each knock off item that you see that is listed as being a reissue follow the following steps... 1. In the item description click "Report Item". It is just above the item number in the item description. 2. Under "Report Category" select copyright & trademark. 3. Under "Reason For Report" select counterfeit item or authenticity disclaimer. 4. Under "Detailed Reason" select counterfeit, fake or replica items. 5. It then asks for a brief description. I say that "Item is listed as being a reissue. The item listed is in fact a knock off and not a reissue by Hasbro (or Takara)".
