    The "all caps" description doesn't improve my perception of his intelligence, either.

    Another hundreds dollars maximus... good lord what is it with this toy to be so expensive?
    Don't know much about the toy to see what's wrong with it, but it sure is mind-boggling to try to understand what he wrote.

    That guy is a moron - he doesn't even have pics of it, could be a scam. I asked him for some real pics.

    Just another clown trying to lie his way to a few hundred extra dollars. He knows what it is and how much he boght it for. I think they were like 200 tops back then. One of the many reasons why good buyers are staying away from EBay these days. Sniping, schill bidding, and KOs have pretty much poisoned the marketplace.

    HAhahahha! He even states that it doesn't come with Plasma, but don't worry, it's "just an accessory." A missing gun I could live with, no robot head? F that.

    I don't really see how sniping can hurt, I snipe all the time. In fact, it helps against shill bidding, and prevent bidding wars. KOs on the other hand, really starting to hurt vintage collecting.

    The brave max is just too "colorful", orignal color is much better.

    Yeah I just messaged him along similar lines for the amusement of a possible reply and to let him know some people know he is flat out lying.

    I can't believe he has a Fortress Maximus before they changed the colours! How lucky!!! I need to jump on this before it is too late.

    I'd hate to get stuck with one of those lame-o Brave Maximus figures from the Car Robots series.

    He replied:

    Or possibly both.

    What. The. Hell.

    Why would he upload an imprint of the date stamp and not just photograph the stamp itself? That '1986' could come from anywhere. Who does he take us for? :redface2: 

    I put the question to him to see how he'll respond. Watch this space.
