    Not my item and not exactly ebay, it's from tfieds.com but it seems to be a prototype of the God Neptune set which was from Beast Wars Second. I already have the collectors club set of these guys but thought someone here might be interested as I know there are a few who collect the prototype figures:

    Interesting... I'm not too up on protos, but that almost looks like a custom job to me. The matte finish looks unusual.

    yeah, I'm not up on prototypes either so you could be right, I have no idea what the warning signs are so I guess this thread will either serve as good news for people or a warning; but I'll leave that to people who know more than me :)

    Looks to me like someone took a regular God Neptune, soaked it in Isopropyl Alcohol to strip any factory paint and claimed it as a prototype.

    Same thing happened a while ago on ebay. Someone took a movie toy and removed all the paint. It made it all faded and funny looking like this one. I would definately beware.

    The seller is Wildcard and it is a prototype. There were a few of these floating around the last few years. Also soaking something in alcohol usually warps or changes the plastic, especially anything that has a metal flake too it.
