    Hmmm, very odd. It's a multilingual box which doesn't scream KO to me (maybe I'm just being naive) but then again, both his auctions have the same picture, so...

    The completed one says it was relisted... perhaps the winner backed out.

    Also I'm not sure this giftset screams KO. Unless they've decided to use the multilingual box for this KO.

    Hmm, well now you guys got me questioning my claim, though I still wouldn't bid on this guy's Menasor. My original reasoning:

    1) I haven't seen the KO giftset box yet (has it been revealed?), so they could have gone multilingual.
    2) He relisted the BIN'd one 24 hours later, which to me says he has a 2nd one; not relisted b/c the buyer backed out.
    3) He has sold other KOs (Scourge & Cyclonus) without disclosing they're KOs
    4) His short selling history indicates he only has/sells newer G1 items.
    5) He's from AB and so is cobra zartan, so you know he can't be trusted.

    On closer inspection now, it's quite possible he is using someone else's picture. Notice the different background for his Menasor compared to his other auctions.

    I would advise anyone who thinks I'm wrong to pay by CC and know how to file a dispute both on eBay or Paypal and with their CC company, just in case.

    PS: JUST KIDDING MATT! :p

    I don't think the KO box is multilingual.

    I've had buyers back out on me after an auction ended much sooner than 24 hours!

    Now THAT is dodgy. Could he have been unaware they were KOs..?

    Newer as in 'towards the end of G1' or newer as in 'more recently KO'd figures'?

    What's that got to do with anything?

    Totally irrelevant. I list quite a lot of items where the pics for the auction have been taken in different places around my house. Depends where the best light is or where there is a clear space that day.

    ???

    Have I missed something here?
