    for the cost, and the fact he mentions my "sticker packs" and that the stickers are still on, as if you originally had to put them on yourself, well, this is why i modified my repro-stickers so you can tell the difference.

    canadian pepsi prime?


    $75 and the price was lowered? don't think so. this is a $300+ figure CHEAP side. it would NOT be still listed is this was the price.

    i contacted teh buyer to warn him to be suspect.

    The seller is fairly close, and i sold a bit of these at flea markets and at botcon.
    Glad i modified them so you can tell. just can't see the pic very well

    saw it before and thought it was kinda funny as if it is so rare as he says then why only want $75?

    The buyer contacted me. He assumes it's a fake as well, but saw something i didn't. a near complete prime (KO or not) for $75, so he's happy either way, I told the buyer to ask for a pic of the trailer stamp. not sure if it's happened. but the buyer knew what he was getting into.

    Hey people, lovely discussion you got here. Even more because I'm the guy that bought this particular Prime ;) 

    The trailer is stamped 5 and it says Hasbro 1980-1982, sum japanese, Takara Co. Ltd, 1980, 1982, Japan.
    Maybe that clears some questions. And here are some pictures for you to judge. Still don't know if it's real but nothing till sofar says it's not. Anyway, it makes one hell off a showing item ;) .

    I love the guy's ebay name ...the toy specialist...and he says in the auction"don't ask me if it is a KO...the guy i bought it off said it is legit"

    Fuck'n funny ....

    Well Gadep,

    thanks for lovin' ma name ;)  but before things get out of hands here. You make it seem like I said it is a real one because someone else said that. But this is the complete text.

    --Pls don't ask me if I know for certain it's a real one, because I just don't know for sure. The guy I bought it from swore it was real (he lived in Canada anyway ;) ) and it looks pretty vintage to me aswell. further on I can tell it is not based on a knock off Prime. It is a real Prime and the trailer has a 5 stamped into it. Maybe that helps. Just judge for yourself by looking at the pictures. And if you want more pictures from it just ask :) --

    You would make a "good" journalist for quoting me like that.

    So I never say it is real in the advert. But I better could have, because this is what you get for being honest. And indeed I sold it in this lot, so the buyer has a nice item for a good price. Especially since it is was a real one... ;) .

    Personally, I think that's a very valid and honest description.
