    Wow. The lengths some people will go to to avoid describing something as what it is: a KO.

    Transformers G1 Dai Atlas on eBay, also Generation 1, Transformers, Action Figures, Toys Games (end time 13-Jun-09 18:21:36 BST)

    Why the hell he couldn't just say 'KO' in the title I don't know. Though that said, the seller is trying to suggest that Takara actually made this. Unbelievable.

    Reported.

    Bidders wouldn't bid as high if they had all that information.

    I'm disappointed, but not surprised it's still up. I reported this after reading the thread blahduh mentions. Despite Ghost Prime's protestations, this is fraud, semantics are the politicians defense.

    But it's still a sneaky, underhand tactic - the seller doesn't deserve anyone's business if that's the sort of stunt they pull to sell a KO.

    And suddenly I'm no longer surprised.

    Yeah, I mentioned this to him in his thread, but he seemed to just fob me off as he tends to when KOs are mentioned.

    So I reported it too.

    christ sake this really is pathetic. honestly guys dont you go out and have a life or something? hey guess what should i check ALL your auctions as well and report you the second you say something inacurate? its just i already looked at afew of your auctions guys and your descriptions are pretty wavey and inaccurate also...hey guess what! i should report you to hey!?

    bloody hell people get a life, what is it? you TRYING to be at the same sad level of nerd and geekness as warhammer players or something?

    Being as I'm the only one who has an eBay link under my name, I'd like a quote from my auctions where I'm being "wavey and inaccurate" please.

    So once again, Tinkerbell, I find myself asking:

    Would you like cheese with your whine?

    Also, can you copy & paste the email/whatever you got off eBay saying it was okay to list that? Also, if eBay have said it's ok for you to sell a KO, why did you word it as 're-issue (non-official)'? Sounds like you're trying to hide the fact that you're selling a KO...
